The likelihood of a successful expungement often comes down to the court in which you are seeking expungement. Judges have the power to decide whether to grant the expungement, and some courts are more lenient than others. In other situations, a prosecutor may fight to prevent the charge from being wiped. It is important that your attorney be experienced in these proceedings, able to work with judges and prosecutors to reach an agreement. Mark Conese will aggressively advocate on your behalf.
For some of these crimes, particularly drug charges, there are alternatives during initial trying of your case, including treatment in lieu of conviction and other drug court procedures. By seeking these upfront, you increase your likelihood of achieving an expungement. As we handle your case, we will help you to understand all options and how they affect your future.
