Successful sealing of criminal record for felony drug possession in New York

The Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo, PLLC Team

This week, Matthew Galluzzo was informed by a judge in New York County Supreme Court that the judge had decided to grant Mr. Galluzzo’s motion to seal his client’s 10-year-old felony conviction for possessing narcotics. Mr. Galluzzo made the motion pursuant to New York Criminal Procedure Law Section 160.59, by submitting an affirmation in support of the motion that included a description of the client’s rehabilitation and need for sealing to further his career. The prosecutor was sufficiently impressed by the application that he did not oppose the motion for sealing, and the judge granted the motion. The client now has no public criminal record, despite having been arrested and convicted of a felony drug possession charge in New York state court.

If you or a loved one would like to pursue a motion for sealing of an old criminal record in New York state, you should strongly consider contacting the Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo PLLC. Matthew Galluzzo is an excellent advocate who writes compelling applications for his clients. He believes strongly in helping people earn second chances, and that people who have repaid their debts to society should no longer be held back by a criminal record stemming from an old mistake.
