Drug Conviction Record Sealing in New York City
A drug crime conviction can hold you back in life, making it extremely difficult to find housing and employment. Luckily, it is possible in the state of New York to get your arrest or conviction record sealed. Unfortunately, New York does not allow for record expungement, but sealing them can help immensely. Maryam Jahedi can help determine if you qualify for having your record sealed.
Traditionally, criminal records are available to the general public; meaning anyone is able to find out if you’ve been arrested or convicted of a crime. However, if you have your criminal record sealed, it will be unavailable to the general public to see, with certain agencies potentially still able to access your record and information regarding the arrest and/or conviction. These agencies are limited to your attorney, law enforcement, agencies issuing firearms licenses, and parole/probation departments.
