Is There An Advantage To Having My Record Sealed In Massachusetts?

The advantage to having your record sealed really comes into play in Massachusetts if the charge or the conviction, is for something that is particularly flagrant. For example, a drug case. Many people are worried about a drug case being on your record. A sex crimes case, that type of thing. So if you can, you want to get that sealed. Yes, somebody will be able to tell that something happened. But they won't see what it was. On the flip side however, in some cases it's not worth doing that, because what you're doing is that you're leaving the record so that you can something happened there, but you don't know what, and you don't know what conclusions people are going to jump to.

I really appreciate your prompt and highly effective assistance on this matter. After six different OUI attorneys told me that there was no way to recall the warrant and dismiss the charges against me without me returning to Mass from California, you managed to accomplish what they said was impossible. Thanks again! - Neil D., Boston, MA
