Motion to Seal is Allowed After Hearing

January 8th 2020
Motion to Seal
Client was a well-established professional who had a previous assault and battery charge filed against her. The charge was ultimately dismissed. She soon decided that she would like to have no record of the event since it could affect her job prospects. So, Attorney Barabino sat down with client and family and drafted lengthy affidavits in support of the sealing petition. Included within the petition were attachments and photographs. At the hearing, the judge took everything under consideration, and despite the opposition from the Commonwealth, allowed the motion to seal.
RESULT: Motion to Seal, ALLOWED
