Sue Vinci, Senior Managing Associate General Counsel at Verizon, successfully expunged the record of an individual who had been charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing the administration of law. The incident occurred while the client was grieving publicly after learning of her father’s death. Client pled guilty to an amended charge of disturbing the peace in violation of a municipal code, and the obstruction charge was dismissed. The client was concerned that this matter would be unfairly prejudicial to her search for employment. Ms. Vinci is part of a continuing pro bono project between Verizon and LSNJ assisting individuals in clearing their criminal records. This cooperative project, developed as part of Verizon’s corporate-wide pro bono criminal justice initiative, also involves several other attorneys from Verizon
