Seminar: Remove & Expungement of Criminal Arrests and Convictions – New Law signed 12/18/19 Free Seminar

SPEAKERS: Kenneth Vercammen, Esq. & Allan Marain, Esq.          (Ken V Author- Criminal Law Forms by the American Bar Association)        
(Allan Marain, Author,
         The NJ statute on expungement was revised in a law signed 12/18/19.  If someone has been arrested or even had a private criminal complaint signed against them in the Municipal Court, they have a criminal record, even if the charges were dismissed or received a Conditional Discharge. Under NJ Law past criminal arrests and convictions can be expunged/ erased easier under certain instances. This program will discuss the expungement process. Allan Marain is past chair of Criminal Law Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association. Ken V served as a Municipal Prosecutor and was amazed how minor criminal guilty pleas and even dismissed charges can affect someone’s ability to get a job or advance a career. Do you have children or someone you know or work with that needs an expungement?

                          More info: For more serious charges The Petition for expungement is filed in the Superior Court. It takes a minimum of three months for the court to grant the expungement. The requirements are very formal. There can be a waiting period between 6 months up to 10 years after the criminal case is finished. For someone who had a drug charge, they can hire an attorney apply for Expungement 6 months after the Conditional Discharge is complete.

The Jaffe Briefing - February 19, 2020

STATEWIDE – With yet another Democratic debate tonight, featuring Mike Bloomberg as a fresh punching bag, where does New Jersey stand in all of this? Usually, our primary election is held so late, in June, that our votes really don’t matter.

STATEWIDE – It seems every politician – living or dead – is taking credit these days for the very low unemployment rate, around 3.5% in New Jersey.
