Seal or Expunge a Criminal Record

If you have ever been arrested for a crime in Florida, you have a Florida criminal record. Even if the criminal charges were dropped, you still have a Florida criminal background. A Florida criminal background can follow you forever, but there is a solution to this problem. Under Florida law, you may be able to have your Florida criminal record sealed or your Florida criminal record expunged.

By having your Florida criminal background sealed or expunged, your Florida criminal background is not open to the public. Sealing or Expunging your Florida criminal record prevents most potential employers from viewing your Florida criminal background. Under Florida Statute 943.045, when you seal your Florida criminal history record, the Florida criminal record is preserved, but it is inaccessible to the public. Once you seal your Florida criminal background, only people that have a legal right to your Florida record can access it. When you expunge your Florida criminal history record, the Florida court orders the destruction of your Florida criminal record. Only the Florida Department of Law Enforcement keeps a copy of your Florida criminal record when it is expunged.

Client Reviews
After years of trying to protect my assets from creditors, I was shocked to find out that my assets were unprotected in ways I had never considered. Not only had I placed my assets at risk from my mother's creditors, but I had placed my assets at risk from other family members who were intent on manipulation. When my mother died, I discovered that a family member had changed my mother's estate planning documents. Mr. Goldman and his team were able to explain what went wrong and successfully defended my position in court. During the case, I learned that I could have had much better protection from family and creditors, thus avoiding years of litigation and undue familial stress. When it comes to protecting your assets and your family, I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Goldman and his team. Bill H.
As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently. In addition, Mr. Goldman can help real estate investors structure trusts to protect their assets from creditors. Michael Starling
