It depends on what the specific conviction was for. I handle these motions if you are looking to retain counsel.
With the new sealing law which was enacted in October 2017, you can seal up to one felony, or one felony and one misdemeanor, or two felonies, after ten years of having a clean record. This also depends on what you were convicted of. Certain felonies are non-sealable. You should speak with an attorney who practices in the jurisdiction the conviction is in.
