Totowa NJ Expungement of Disorderly Persons Offense Lawyer

Expungement Attorney in Passaic County, New Jersey

If you were arrested and charged with a disorderly persons (“DP”) or petty disorderly persons (“PDP”) offense – such as resisting arrest, simple assault, harassment, or disorderly conduct – the arrest and original charge will all appear on your criminal record, regardless of whether there was ultimately a conviction. This can create issues with potential employers or educational institution that you are seeking to attend. To avoid those issues, you can hire an attorney to file an Expungement Petition on your behalf and move to have the arrest, original charge, and conviction (if any) removed from your record entirely.

Criminal defense attorney Alissa D. Hascup represents clients throughout New Jersey who are seeking an Expungement. Hiring Ms. Hascup will ensure that your Expungement Petition is submitted, argued and resolved as efficiently as possible. Contact her office anytime for an initial consultation, which is always provided free of charge.
