Is a criminal conviction holding you back? If so, an expungement, also known as a conditional sealing, may be an option that can help you get your life on track. There are very specific circumstances where an expungement can help and a strict list of criteria that you must meet to qualify. To ensure that you do everything right, you should have the guidance of an experienced attorney.

I strive to be both a trusted adviser and a powerful advocate for you, so you always know where to turn for help with an expungement or any other criminal defense needs.

Expungements in New York
Expungement and sealing prevent the majority of the general population from being able to view certain charges and convictions in your criminal history. Expungement is possible for crimes such as burglary, criminal possession of stolen property, grand larceny, criminal mischief, drug charges, and possession of a forged instrument. The specific circumstances of your case will ultimately determine if an expungement will be granted, so you need an advocate who knows how to shape a persuasive argument based on your situation.
Successfully obtaining an expungement can help when you attempt to secure:
- Funds for school
- Other services that require a background check
The expungement process is very complicated. Because I practice only in the area of criminal law, I am well versed in this procedure — I have helped many clients seal their records and move on with their lives.
