New York Sealing Law Attorneys

New York’s “Second Chance Law” Allows Misdemeanor Sealing

For years in New York, a criminal conviction could be indefinitely attached to a person’s identity, no matter the pain and effort it took for them to move past that part of their lives. The State Legislature has recently made amendments to the law, however, to allow criminal record sealing in New York. This gives those seeking to live normal lives a better chance at turning over a new leaf.

Under this new law, many non-violent felonies and most misdemeanors are eligible for sealing after a period of ten years — meaning these records will not be made available to the public, nor will they be visible on civil background checks. Although the new law will not permanently expunge or completely erase criminal records (since sealing and expungement are different legal concepts and processes), criminal record sealing can help ensure that employers, landlords, loan officers and many others will be unable to view the contents of your file or view your criminal record without a court order.

NY Sealing Law’s Rick Collins and his team of dedicated attorneys can help New Yorkers like you clear your record and start living your life free of social barriers and stigma.
