Jacksonville DUI Expungement Attorney
Do You Need to Clean Your Criminal Record?
If you have ever been arrested, you may be surprised to know that any member of the public may learn about the arrest by requesting a copy of your criminal record. It does not matter whether you were ever convicted! This may hurt you as you apply for scholarships, jobs, licenses and loans. Happily though, upon petition, the state of Florida allows certain arrests in which charges were dropped or adjudication of guilt was withheld (non-convictions) to be sealed or expunged.
This means that when people search your criminal record, they learn nothing. If they ask you, you may legally deny the matter. A Jacksonville DUI attorney may give you effective help with sealing or expungement of your record. We believe everyone deserves a second chance. Comprised of three former DUI prosecutors, we are ready to assist you to clean your record.
You may be eligible for expungement if you:
- Were arrested but never convicted;
- Had a case resulting in a withhold of adjudication;
- Never had a prior sealing or expungement; or
- Had a charge not on the list of charges ineligible for expungement
Helping with Expungements in Jacksonville
When you come to us, we review your criminal record to assess whether you have a reasonable chance of expungement. Upon petition to the court, the matter is submitted to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to determine eligibility. With a positive FDLE determination, the court may approve your petition for expungement.
From that point on the public may not access your record. Public officials on checking the record will only see a note saying there has been an expungement. Upon expungement you will no longer have to worry about colleges, employers and loan companies checking your criminal record. You can answer "no" with confidence and legality.
