  • First and second degree distribution of a controlled dangerous substance or possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute (Third and fourth degree distribution charges are expungable)

Therefore, if you were convicted of one of these crimes, you are not eligible for expungement.

What You Should Do Next

Our attorneys know you want to have your expungement completed successfully, as soon as possible. Typically, the motion for expungement is scheduled about 30 to 60 days after the expungement petition is filed. If you need your matter expunged quickly, please contact our office and we will assist in getting your case expunged on an expedited basis if possible.

At your consultation, we’ll discuss all the information needed to move forward. Specific information about the offense such as summons or complaint number, arresting agency, criminal charge and corresponding statutory number, arrest date and disposition in court will need to be obtained. Without this information, the expungement cannot be appropriately filed and, consequently, it will not be granted. We have the ability to research your previous record to ensure that the petition for expungement is accurate. Oftentimes, there is information on a someone’s criminal history that they did not even know existed or that they believed was never memorialized in a record.
