Helped me every step of the way
I had a long list of charges I wanted to get expunged including felonies and drug charges in NJ and gave Katherine a call and she went over everything with me and it was a long process but as promised my record was completely expunged and wiped clean. This was during Covid so everything was taking much longer, but anytime I would email her they would get back to me the very next day with an update on what is going on. Highly recommended!!

Excellent Service - Courteous and Professional
I contacted the Katherine O'Brien Law firm in March, 2022. I required the middle name on my birth certificate amended to match the middle name I'd used since I was 10 years old. (It was a clerical mistake). Only then, could I qualify for the N.J. Real ID Driver's License and allowed to board any U.S domestic flights starting in May, 2023. Her Associate, Danielle H. and her law clerk Zena handled my case in Middlesex County. Each was professional and courteous throughout the process. My middle name change was approved in June, 2022. I received my NJ Real ID Driver's License two and one half weeks later in the mail. Highly recommended.

Prompt, precise, attn to detail, friendly !!
What a please it was having Katherine help resolve me issues along with Zena. I had an expungement done yet had some final concerns and issues. Some online websites that show one backgrounds revealed my pre-expungement misdemeanors and a felony I had years ago. Katherine was on it right away and notified the site. Zena also assisted and was in constant contact with me usually the same day of my question. The company was sent a letter and the negative info is gone. The internet was also “sweeped” and any lingering pre-expungement info was taken down. Best of all, I was only charged a very small fee. I would recommend Katherine and her firm if you have any expungement issues. You will NOT be disappointed!!!

Best lawyer Ever
Where do I start been trying to get my record expunge for so long tried different lawyers either they said no they can’t help me or they didn’t sound like they knew what they was talking about. Did some google search and found Katherine O’Brien Law did some research and divided to give it a try. I disclose everything to left nothing out and after she advise me she will take my case and it will take 6 to 8 months to get my records expunge. So I took a leap of faith and as of 6/24/20 my records are expunge before of her and her team. They responded to all my questions and concerns and responded in a timely matter sometimes evens quicker. Her and her team gave me a new life and now I’m able to apply for a better job and support my family even more. I truly can not thank you enough..

I approached Katherine for help to sort out some legal matters in Jersey City Courthouse. Katherine and her team remained on top off the issue and successfully dealt with matters very professionally, I will definitely recommend them for your needs. Katherine is knowledgable lawyer to consult US legal matters with.

Katherine O'Brien and her law firm are truly A1, 5 Star!
Myself being 64 years old, I have known and paid many lawyers over the years. What I have found unfortunately to be the general consistency coming from most attorneys are: 1. They take as much money as they can get from you, 2. They will do as little work as possible, 3. Even if your interests are dropped cold on the floor by them and swept into the garbage can, they expect you to say “Thank You”. Katherine and her team were and are the refreshing exception to the rule. They exemplify the words “Professional” “Client Conscientious” “Meticulous” “Learned” and “Reasonably Priced”. Katherine will not tell you one thing and do another. She outlines what is involved; the normal time it will take to complete the mission; and she will try to outline the typical problems that could occur. In my case she told me it would probably take 8-months to a year to finalize the mission at hand. She was right on the mark. At each step along the journey, she and her team were very helpful and timely per the steps needed to be taken. My personal recommendation is as strong as it gets when it comes down to others using Katherine O'Brien and her law team to handle their personal legal needs. I am confident that if you do so, you will be very pleased upon the final outcome and that the projected time and cost for completion was projected accurately and squarely on the mark. Katherine is truly a sparkling gem of no equal! Walter Burien Saint Johns, Arizona

Excellent Professional Service
I'm very glad I chose Katherine to handle my expungement. She explained the process very clearly, helped me complete all of the paperwork, and managed expectations so that I was clear on how long the process might take. Katherine and her staff kept me informed throughout the process and updated me regularly regarding the status. I would highly recommend her,

Professional and Knowledgeable
I contacted Katherine for my expungement based on a google search. I was surprised at the price she offered but after speaking with her I knew she was the kind of lawyer I needed in my corner. Katherine is very knowledgeable and was always honest with me. We encountered a few speed bumps due to laws changing during the process but she assured me that this would not affect my case. There were court dates that went along with my expungement but I I was not required to attend as her office did all the footwork. My expungement was finalized in about 1 year. I am very grateful that Katherine was my lawyer and I will continue to recommend her based on my wonderful experience.

Professional and Highly Competent
I contacted Katherine after seeing an internet ad. I called rather late on a Friday night but to my surprise she called me back at about 7:30 pm. I wanted her to handle an expungment for me. She told me about the process and told me to be patient. I arranged payment and provided her with the documentation she requested. She kept me posted throughout the process, and returned all my calls. There were some appearances in court required but I didnt have to go. It took close to a year to resolve but this is just a function of the slow courts. I got my expungement and it was a REALLY good price! All this without ever leaving my home once! I didnt meet Katherine in person but she got the job done for me. I highly recommend her!

New Jersey expungement
Katherine was a pleasure to work with. From the very beginning she was clear about what she would need in order to complete the expungement and the timeline I should expect. I had consulted other lawyers in the past and they were expensive and hesitant about moving forward which made me hesitant about retaining them. I would highly recommend Katherine. She is thorough and was quick to respond via phone or email. I panicked a few times and she graciously answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns. Highly recommend her services

Professional
Found Katherine North O'Brien Law online. Very direct listing, price right there. Site well laid out no fluff. Hired her during first conversation. Very knowledgeable, professional. My circumstances were 48 years old. Some records were gone. Katherine North O'Brien sorted through it all with no additional cost. Biggest difficulty was waiting for the system to do their part. Katherine North O'Brien was a top notch lawyer for me. Hiring her is a no brainer. Edward
