CGMB Attends Caucus Meetings in Albany on Conviction Sealing Issue
Again this week, lawyers fromCollins Gann McCloskey & Barry PLLC (CGMB) traveled to the New York State Capital to discuss issues of criminal record sealing and proposed “Second Chances” legislation. The occasion was not for lobbying purposes and was unrelated to the sealing efforts of the New York State Bar Association. Rather, it was a personal invitation by members of a legislative caucus for Rick to provide his individual expertise and knowledge of the conviction sealing issue.
Rick Collins and David Torreblanca met with the caucus members in the Legislative Office Building, taking the opportunity to provide an overview of the various bills currently active. Rick believes that even outside of the lobbying process, sharing information can only enhance awareness of the issues involved. CGMB remains committed to the issues surrounding criminal record sealing in New York State.
