Clean Slate Legislation Passes in New York State

Steven Epstein, founding partner of the firm and president-elect of the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, which has been lobbying for this legislation for many years, is proud to announce that the Clean Slate Act has passed in New York State.

This legislation, if signed by Governor Kathy Hochul, will seal criminal records for those who finish their sentences and continue on a positive path, which will break down barriers to housing, education and jobs for millions of people which might otherwise have been impossible with convictions on their records.
