  1. Don't practice in NY but this is hard to do. Your charged are higher end felonies but not barred from trying to vacated them from your record (assuming NY is similar to WA state). However, the Assault 2 could be a strike, it is here in WA state so you will have to check on that one there.


  2. If you were convicted of a crime that information won't seal.

    I am a former federal and State prosecutor and now handle criminal defense and personal injury/civil rights cases. Feel free to check out my web site and contact me at (212) 577-9797 or via email at Eric@RothsteinLawNY.com. I was named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in New York for 2012. No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers. The above answer is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.


  3. It could be problematic. Contact a local lawyer to make sure.
