Expungement Lawyer in Miami
Sealing / Clearing Your Record
Having your criminal record sealed or expunged can give you a fresh start and a satisfactory end to a troubled time in your life. Seltzer Law, PA operates on the principle that when you come to us for help, you are not just another person whose case is to be tried and then filed away. Our assistance extends to your quality of life and the freedoms you enjoy, after an arrest and/or conviction has occurred. Therefore, you should waste no time in contacting a professional Miami criminal defense attorney at our office for the legal help you both need and deserve.
Having a criminal record can stay with you and affect employment opportunities, your ability to obtain and use specific certificates and professional licenses and your educational prospects. For many, it would be a great help to be able to truthfully state that they do not have a criminal record. In our state, having your record sealed means that it will remain confidential and the public cannot gain access to it. Specific government agencies may still be able to view these records in certain circumstances. If your history is expunged, then court and most police records are physically destroyed. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will, however, maintain a copy of your file which can only be accessed by a court order.
We can help you hide your criminal record!
Whether your record includes an arrest only or a conviction and penalties as well, the State of Florida allows you to clear your record in certain instances and get your life back. The first step of the process is to ensure you are eligible to have your record either sealed or expunged. If you were convicted of certain crimes, such as sexual battery, specific
lewd and lascivious offenses,
murder (homicide) and others, you may not be eligible to have your record sealed or expunged.
A professional at Seltzer Law, PA can work with you to thoroughly review your qualifications. Once we confirm your eligibility, we get your petition filed and work with the court towards getting your record sealed or expunged. For more information, see Florida Statute 943.0585: Court-ordered expunction of criminal history records. A criminal defense professional at our firm can help with records sealing or expungement for those living in Florida and other areas around the United States.
