Commonwealth v. A.S. (Expungement of Felony Charges)

Commonwealth v. A.S. (Expungement of Felony Charges)


Attorney Paletta represented Client on this criminal prosecution.  Client, a business professional, was charged with a FELONY - Forgery-Alter Writing.  Attorney Paletta acheived a DISMISSAL of this case at the Preliminary Hearing before District Judge Mary P. Murray.


Even though a Dismissal of the case was a huge win, Attorney Paletta advised client that he should move forward with an Expungement of his case as soon as possible, to lessen the likelihood of this case causing any problems for him in the future.  Attorney Paletta explained that without an Expungement, all records of this case would still exist and the case would show up on a Criminal Background check.  


Client retained Attorney Paletta for the Expungement of this case.  Attorney Paletta filed the Expungement Petition, which was later Granted.  Client received an Order of Court that orders all records of this matter be destroyed.
