Trenton NJ Criminal Record Sealing Attorneys
Have you run into a problem or restriction because of a past arrest and criminal charge, even though you were never convicted? This has become much more common in the Internet age, with extensive background-checking much more accessible for employers and others across the spectrum of society. Not everyone realizes that deleting or sealing police records is possible under some circumstances, through a legal process called expungement.

A Technical Process that Requires a Knowledgeable Attorney
An expungement order is effective and real - it can delete all evidence of your arrest from records accessible to employers and others in the public.
