New York Conditional Sealing Lawyers

What Are My Options?

Having a criminal record can have a devastating effect on your life. It can make it more difficult to find a job, get housing, or qualify for public benefits. It can also affect things like your immigration status or eligibility to vote.

Fortunately, if you live in New York, you may be eligible to get these records sealed and eliminate the negative impacts of a criminal record. After the passage of a new law in 2017, Sealing is now available for misdemeanor convictions and all but the most serious felony convictions as long as those convictions took place ten years ago or longer.

Am I Eligible?

The answer to this question depends on the number of convictions on your records, the type of convictions, and the amount of time that has passed since these convictions. While New York law imposes relatively clear eligibility requirements, there are situations where a detailed understanding of the law is necessary.

If you have questions concerning your eligibility, call us a 212-803-9025 for a free consultation so we can work together to determine next steps.
