Expungements Attorney in Morristown

Sealing Your Criminal Record to the Public Eye

If you were arrested or convicted for a crime, the consequences can be much more far-reaching than the immediate penalties. Convictions make many parts of life more difficult, such as pursuing secondary education, obtaining employment, and finding housing. Fortunately, it is possible to have your record sealed from the public eye. This process is known as expungement and The Law Offices of Joseph S. Scura may be able to help you pursue sealing your past conviction or arrest.

To learn more about the process, contact a Morristown expungement lawyer at (973) 832-0841.

Not all convictions are eligible for expungement. Some are known as prohibited offenses and cannot be sealed. There are also many factors which go into the eligibility process such as whether or not you were convicted, if you served time, if you paid your fines, etc.

There are a few crimes which are not eligible for expungement, including:
