Just had my Divorce case settled 2 months ago after having a horrible experience with another firm. I couldn’t be happier with Claire Banks and Elizabeth Garvey with their outstanding professionalism in doing so with Spodek Law Group. Any time I needed questions answered they were always prompt in doing so with all my uncertainties after 30 yrs of marriage.I feel from the bottom of my heart you will NOT be disappointed with either one. Thanks a million.

Alex Zhik contacted me almost immediately when I reached out to Spodek for a consultation and was able to effectively communicate the path forward/consequences of my legal issue. I immediately agreed to hire Alex for his services and did not regret my choice. He was able to cover my case in court (with 1 day notice) and not only was he able to push my case down, he carefully negotiated a dismissal of the charge altogether. I highly recommend Spodek, and more specifically, Alex Zhik for all of your legal issues. Thanks guys!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence. Thank you team!

I can't recommend Alex Zhik and Spodek Law Firm highly enough for their exceptional legal representation and personal mentorship. From the moment I engaged their services in October 2022, Alex took the time to understand my case thoroughly and provided guidance every step of the way. Alex's dedication to my case went above and beyond my expectations. His expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome were evident throughout the entire process. He took the time to mentor me, ensuring I understood the legal complexities involved to make informed decisions. Alex is the kind of guy you would want to have a beer with and has made a meaningful impact on me. I also want to acknowledge Todd Spodek, the leader of the firm, who played a crucial role in my case. His leadership and support bolstered the efforts of Alex, and his involvement highlighted the firm's commitment to excellence. Thanks to Alex Zhik and Todd Spodek, I achieved the outcome I desired, and I am incredibly grateful for their professionalism, expertise, and genuine care. If you're in need of legal representation, look no further than this outstanding team.

  2. Submit a Request Form: Jersey City requires use of their specific request form.
  3. Provide ID: You’ll need to show legal photo ID to verify your identity.
  4. Pay the Fee: There is a $10 fee for each disposition certificate requested.

Seems simple enough, but there are potential snags at every step that can delay or derail your request.

Frequently Asked Questions

What information is included on a certificate of disposition?

A certificate of disposition lists key details about the resolution of a criminal case, including:

  • Original charges filed
  • Plea entered (guilty, not guilty, etc.)
  • Convictions on specific charges
  • Sentences imposed (fines, probation, jail time)
  • If charges were dismissed and reason (e.g. lack of evidence)

How long does it take to get a certificate of disposition?

Courts typically take 5-14 days to process requests for disposition certificates after receiving all required information and documentation. The time can vary based on the court’s caseload.

Do I need to get a disposition certificate from each court involved in my case?

Yes, you will need to obtain a separate disposition certificate from every court where your case was handled, even if it was eventually transferred or consolidated into one case. Each court issues their own disposition only for the records and events in that specific court.

Can I request disposition certificates for cases involving a family member?

No, unless you have legal authority granted by that person, you can only request disposition certificates for cases involving yourself. Courts require proof of identity and authorization to release these records.

How far back do disposition certificates go?

There is no firm time limit in most jurisdictions. Disposition certificates can be obtained for cases resolved many years or even decades ago, as long as the records still exist in that court’s archives.

What if there is incorrect information on my disposition certificate?

If you believe there are errors or missing information on a disposition certificate, you will need to petition the court to correct or amend it. Having an experienced lawyer can help resolve these issues.

Do I need disposition certificates for charges that were dismissed?

Yes, even if charges were ultimately dismissed, you should still obtain the disposition certificate as official proof of that outcome. Background checks can show dismissed charges, so the disposition verifies how the case was resolved.
