    Answered . Many general practice attorneys do expungements. Not all records can be expunged though. You may want to make sure that you are eligible. NJSA 2C:52 deals with expungement law, and there are specific statutes that reference drug possession charges. Also, I am not sure how old you were when you received you arrest/ charge/ conviction but there are also different rules for young drug offenders (offenders under 21).

    My office handles expungements. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. Our number is (732) 609-3915.
