We are now also inviting former clients, and persons for whom we have provided consultations, to provide feedback concerning our performance. Whether or not you have suggestions for improvement, we value your opinion. Would you take just a minute to review us? Three of these places are Avvo (a web site for persons using the services of lawyers), Google, and Martindale-Hubbell. (Martindale-Hubbell is another site for persons using the services of lawyers). If we represented you on a matter, the best site on which to post the review is Google. If all we provided was a consultation, Avvo is more appropriate. You can also post to Martindale-Hubbell instead of the first two.

Thanks a lot.

|D.M.M.||7247||I am completely satisfied with the services that I received and the promptness of the resolution to this case.|
|R.B.||7255||Thank you for everything. Outstanding service.|
In the days since the successful completion of my expungement I have had time to fully reflect on what it means to me and those that will come in contact with me for the rest of my life and am nothing but inspired. Being able to find you, a needle in a haystack has left me with hope that I did not have before. I can now stand upright and chase my dreams freely and unapologetically without that scarlet letter attachment anymore.
I have also decided to continue my educational pursuits and I have transferred to the University of Alabama (online) to get the last 30 or so credits that I need to complete my undergraduate studies. I'm not sure where I will go or what I will do after that but I guess the real point now is that I have a choice because of the service that you have provided for me as well as others.

Although the case was not resolved in C's favor, this was a particularly difficult situation as interpretation of new statute language is evolving. Had their not been such fraught emotional issues tied up with the litigation, C would have pursued the case to the next level.
Thank you again for your hard work and support.

My sincere thanks goes to you for my excellent legal representation. I could not be happier with the results of my expungement. You Mr. Marain made a very critical difference in my future. The extra time and effort put forth on your behalf until the end was truly appreciated. The process was a little long, but in the end thanks to you my expungement was granted. Thanks again for displaying experience and skill to get the best possible results for me.

|H.L.H.||7865||I would highly recommend Mr. Marain & his staff to anyone I know, and would gladly use his services again if need be. Thank you.|
Always a gentleman.
|L.J.C.||7882||I cannot recommend Mr. Marain and his staff enough. I feel absolutely blessed to have had him represent me. He made an extremely stressful and long ordeal very manageable and encouraged me multiple times when I felt dispirited. I have never felt a better fit with an attorney, and I feel it unfortunate that I did not meet him earlier in my life. I never felt rushed or pressured. To the contrary, when Mr. Marain had a hint that I didn't understand something he took the time to make sure that I knew what the process was and what I was to expect. He is an incredibly present attorney. He doesn't carelessly multitask when working on your behalf, while corresponding or speaking with you. When working with him it quickly becomes apparent that he feels you important. He has a wealth of experience, knowledge and resources that he utilized when representing me. I experienced above and beyond communication and professionalism even after my issue was concluded and there were minor details that might aid me going further. His cost was overwhelmingly reasonable in relation to the amount of work, and time that he invested. I have come to know him over the last year as a man that values the care and well-being of his clients and concept of justice well above his time and income. He treats his profession as a service to his clients. Although I am not in any way a litigious person I now carry myself with less apprehension of any legal matters that I may have to address in the future. If you are a potential client do yourself a favor and retain Mr. Marain. If you are a young or new attorney you will benefit immeasurably by having Mr. Marain as a mentor.|
|T.V.||7907||Mr. Marain did an excellent job, at an excellent price in an excellent time frame.|
|K.P.||7917||I really appreciate Allan's professionalism, care & overall personality. Also the steps he took to protect my privacy shows that he truly understands that peaceful liberty loving individuals may sometimes require going above & beyond, which Allan did with zero hesitation or complaint.|

Allan Marain is a Senior Instructor with Garden State Continuing Legal Education Services. He has been a presenter in its seminars to New Jersey attorneys of "Expungements under New Jersey Law". He chairs the expungement committee of the Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers of New Jersey. New Jersey County and local law enforcement agencies have sought his advice concerning application of New Jersey Statutes and Court Rules relating to expungements. His article, Expungement of Criminal Proceedings, was featured in the February 2005 edition of "New Jersey Lawyer Magazine," published by the New Jersey State Bar Association. The October 2015 edition of that same magazine contains his article, Expungement and Sealing of Juvenile Records. On February 4, 2019, the New Jersey Law Journal published as an op-ed Allan submitted entitled It's Time To Fix the Expungement Process.
The New Jersey Law Revision Commission (NJLRC) has invited his thoughts on proposed changes and revisions to the New Jersey Expungement statutes, and Mr. Marain has been pleased to respond to that invitation. In January 2015, Allan co-presented with Jason Seidman, of the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office, Expunging a Criminal Record - what you need to know as a defense attorney; what you need to know as a prosecutor. This presentation was for continuing legal education credits, under the auspices of the Criminal Law Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association. In the audience were criminal defense lawyers as well as prosecutors from throughout New Jersey.
In November 2017, Allan again made a co-presentation to the New Jersey State Bar Association. This time it was to its Municipal Court Practice Section. His co-presenter was Christina Atallah, from the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office. The program concerned expungements in general, with emphasis upon expungement of matters heard in municipal courts. In June 2018 he participated as a panel member for another Municipal Court Practice Section presentation, and in September he again spoke, this time with Essex County Assistant Prosecutor Gary Thomas, to the Criminal Law Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association. Allan was invited to co-present a seminar for the Association for Justice program on November 15, 2018, at the New Jersey Meadowlands. However, he was uninvited when he indicated his unwillingness to pay its $495.00 registration fee for the privilege. He did speak on October 20, 2018 to the Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers of New Jersey, together with Assistant Deputy Public Defender Stephen Hunter. On November 14, 2018, he presented a webinar to lawyers throughout New Jersey for the New Jersey State Bar Association. This webinar discussed changes to New Jersey expungement law that took effect on October 1, 2018. The webinar also discussed other aspects of New Jersey expungement law, including procedure, drafting suggestions, and “hot topics.”
Allan is among the highly experienced and responsive expungement attorneys in New Jersey. Law & Politics Magazine, and the publishers of New Jersey Monthly, have included Allan Marain on its list of New Jersey's “Super Lawyers” in six different years. A 2013 Joint Resolution of the New Jersey Legislature recognized him, stating, “Within all the spheres of his life and work, Allan Marain has established a model to emulate and set a standard of excellence towards which others might strive[.]”
Allan belongs to the New Jersey State Bar Association. He is a past chair of both its Criminal Law Section and its Municipal Court Practice Section. He is a member of the Legal Committee of NORML (National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws). Allan helped found NORML-NJ. He was actually one of its incorporators.
Allan is a current trustee of the Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers of New Jersey. He is a former trustee of the Middlesex County Bar Association. He is also a former member of the Middlesex County Assignment Judge's Criminal Lawyers Committee.
