  • Kelly Keegan Helps Client Put Conviction Behind Him

    Charge(s): 

    Over twenty years following a conviction for Misdemeanor Fifth Degree Domestic Assault, Kelly’s client sought her help cleaning up his criminal record. As a financial advisor, the client’s record often became an obstacle. Kelly petitioned the court for an expungement of his criminal case. In doing so, she also noticed that the statute for which he was convicted could lead to problems in possessing firearms because it did not specify a subdivision. She worked with the prosecutor to specify that his conviction was for Misdemeanor Fifth Degree Domestic Assault – Fear, which was not a firearms prohibitor. With the conviction statute updated, the record was eventually expunged. Kelly thus successfully mitigated the consequences of the client’s conviction.
