“Not Guilty”, “Dropped” and “Dismissed” – These are Records?

Many individuals mistakenly believe that because their convictions are old they are irrelevant. Alternatively, many believe that because their charges were dropped, dismissed after they completed PTI or some other diversionary program, or because they received a conditional discharge, their records were automatically cleared Not so!

Criminal records of all kinds, just like the convictions themselves, are “cleared” only when they are ordered expunged by the superior court.

An expungement is a separate, post-sentence process which begins with the timely filing of a verified petition and ends when all involved agencies receive a final Expungement Order signed by a county judge.

This final order that we may obtain for you would force all agencies involved in your incident(s) to erase their records from private sector scrutiny and allow you to legally answer “No” to the question, “Have you ever been convicted of a crime?”

First Step: Eligibility

Before preparing your expungement petition, eligibility must first be determined. Our experienced attorneys routinely obtain comprehensive criminal background checks detailing the same type of information that prospective employers or any private citizen would ordinarily be able to review without an expungement. Your records will then be reviewed by our experienced criminal defense attorneys in order to determine your eligibility and timing for an expungement.

I recently had gotten a ticket that was worth 5 points. I choose this firm because they were local to where the incident occurred. I was very nervous and unsure of the possible outcomes.

I found my attorney, Mr. Kessous, to be highly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and effective. He was highly responsive to my questions and concerns and easy to work with, and achieved the desired settlement for me in regard to my traffic ticket. If I were in the same situation all over again, I would choose to work with him without hesitation, and expect that if I were to face a similar situation in the foreseeable future, I would contact him. I would also provide his name with the highest recommendation to others in the area for such problems. (I also found his assistant, Gabriela Vargas, to be quite responsive and helpful as well.) Thanks again for all of your help!

I had the good fortune of Mr. Pasquale Vella representing in a matter that I had deemed a bleak one, with no positive outcome in sight. Vella assured me that he would work hard to get me the best results possible, and that is exactly what he did. He worked tirelessly making sure he covered all possible angles, and in the end I was extremely pleased with his services. Vella proved to be diligent, aggressive in yielding results, and very professional, all while maintaining a communicative yet good natured rapport with me as his client. I would most certainly use his services again in the future as well as highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.

Robert White III, Esq. was professional and efficient in every step of the process. From dealing with my Worker's Comp insurance to making sure I got the best care with a skilled neurosurgeon and making sure my case was handled fairly by a judge and the court system. I would definitely recommend Garces, Grabler and LeBrocq for anyone who was in need of representation for such matters.

My uncle had some problems with meals at a Monmouth Count assisted living home. The home charged over $5,000 per month and he was not being offered food that he liked on many occasions and his complaints did not resolve the issue. I called Garces & Grabler on his behalf and they sent an attorney to the home to first speak with my uncle, then speak with the director. Within a few day, his dietary needs were met. Everything was resolved amicably and the law firm charged, in my opinion, a very reasonable fee for their services.

Johnathan Kessous did a fantastic job handling my case. I hope i never need his expertise again...but if I do, he would be my first choice for legal representation. I had gotten a speeding ticket on the NJTPK going 84 in a 55 which resulted in a state trooper issuing me a 5 point ticket. Johnathan got it reduced down to zero points... just a fine.
