Expungements Serving Families Throughout Jacksonville For Over 25 Years

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.

    "He prepared our family through each and every step."

    "Bad things happen to good families and people” That is one of the first things Jason said to me and my son. The laws are set to protect us. However, the law can be black and white when there are several shades of grey. If a man has a beer in his own house after coming back from war but is only 20, should his dad be charged for contributing to the delinquency of a minor? Have you ever done something now looking back, it may not have been the best decision but nothing happened? That was not the case a few years ago to my family. A bad decision, one I am sure many of us have done in our younger days. A bad decision was made and it could have ruined a young man’s future. The courts are busy and things can fall through the cracks; I was making sure my son was not one of them. I knew Jason had worked for the District attorney’s office so he knew both sides of the law. He knew what the other side was going to do and say because he was there for many years. He prepared our family through each and every step. He made sure that we were proactive “getting ducks in a row” so to speak. If there was something mentioned, we had already taken care of it and showed no history and really no where for the other side to go. What could have been jail time ended up being a bump in the road. No one can promise anything is a sure thing. Jason did not make any promises he was not prepared to keep. He told us what normally happens, and what he was going to try for and he did. I rather have someone say there is a 70/30 chance than, “sure this is no problem, don’t worry about it”. We do worry about it. It is our lives or one of someone we love. Some cases may not be life or death, but they all are between a life that could be and a life that never will be. Jason understands that and approached it as if was his brother standing next to him. Every now and then, I will look at my son when eating dinner or something and think, if it was not for Jason and his group, I would have to visit my son to see him. I thanked God for Jason being there then, and have every day since.

    Jason is the best lawyer in Jacksonville. I have had the pleasure of having him represent a family member and his work was above and beyond what any other attorney would have done. He will work with you where ever he can to get the best outcome. You can trust what he says. Very high ethics .I have called him my Perry Mason, and I really mean it. If you want THE BEST trust Jason Porter, he's real.

    "Highly recommend him if you need legal advice"
    Mr. Porter is an excellent attorney. He helped me and my teenage son through a very difficult situation. He was right there immediately ensuring we had representation. He even called to follow up to ensure we were ok. He is very passionate about helping his clients. He also does not try to charge you if he knows you don’t have a case. He’s very honest and a great person. Highly recommend him if you need legal advice. Kelley

    "He is our family attorney forever."
    There are times when you may need unforeseen legal assistance and your scared and don't have a clue if youre making the right choice. The decision is not an easy one when it's based on your family and life. You worry if they have your best interest at heart, if they know enough, if they know the right people and it's very emotional & confusing. Ten years ago my family was faced with the worst nightmare any mother could ever imagine & I prayed to God to make the right decision and I did. Meeting Jason Porter & his assistant Darlene C. (she's been with him longer than that), was the best in my life in my family's life. Jason doesn't have a big office turn around, in fact I have watched his office grow to the success it is today. His staff stays because they know they are with a terrific guy & great attorney. I can go on and on and mean every word from the bottom of my heart but the are truly no words to describe the great outcomes he has had for 2 of my sons on separate occasions. Unfortunately, we don't live in a society anymore where "boys will be boys". There are way too many laws and not enough of societal morality (due to a change of the times). Boys may get in trouble, they did get in trouble but with their unfortunate choices, my choice was the better in retaining Jason and his law firm. He is our family attorney forever.

    "My life is in a much better place today because of Jason's integrity within the community and relationships with the judges & state attorneys."
    I have had several cases with Mr. Porter as my attorney. He went to bat for me and fought hard to get a great outcome every time! He is a top-notch attorney in Jacksonville and very professional & honest when dealing with each scenario of my cases. My life is in a much better place today because of Jason's integrity within the community and relationships with the judges & state attorneys.

    "Jason is the most diligent attorney"
    He went all out to help me and never gave up. I owe him all my thanks. He honestly cares and doesn't make you feel less than special.

    "I will never be able to thank Jason Porter enough."
    Jason Porter has helped me on two separate occasions and both times his attention to detail really impressed me. His staff is wonderful and easy to work with. The second time I worked with Jason Porter, he turned what I thought was a hopeless situation into a miracle. He literally got me my life back by getting the charges reduced. His experience as a trial lawyer came in handy when he had to work with the district attorney to change the judge's mind on my case. Jason Porter has a calming demeanor and he instilled confidence when going over the details of my case. I tended to be pessimistic, but Jason Porter would always reassure me and keep me positive. I will never be able to thank Jason Porter enough for all that he has done for me and my family. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do I know I can count on Jason Porter to give me my best chance at a favorable outcome.
