  1. This would be a question for a New York attorney regarding New York law. You cannot try to expunge a case from another state in Minnesota.

    Do not rely on this information. My office accepts clients from Avvo, but this initial impression is not protected by any privilege and is not attorney-client communication. You should consult a lawyer promptly about your legal matter.


  2. This matter must be addressed in NY. Consult with an attorney in that jurisdiction.

    Answer is for informational purposes only and does not create an attorney-client relationship.


  3. You should secure a NY licensed attorney for assistance with this matter. Generally, such a petition is filed in the county in which the underlying criminal charge was filed. Tricia Dwyer Esq.

    MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL - ST CLOUD. This law firm may accept avvo posters as clients but this post is not legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship. This post is to be considered general information which may or may not apply to your personal situation. Please do seek private attorney counsel as to your personal legal issues and needs.


  4. Any expungement must occur in the state where the offense occurred.

You should always consult a lawyer in your state regarding your specific legal matter.
