Background checks in Florida are extensive. If you have ever been arrested, chances are that the arrest will appear in your record, which can affect your future employment, housing, and other aspects of your life. Sealing records or expunging prior criminal records can help you avoid future problems.
At the law office of Hoskins & Penton, we have more than 50 years’ combined experience expunging police and court records. Our lawyers have established a solid working relationship with the courts and judges, and have experience with the entire criminal defense process.
If you qualify for either an expungement or record sealing, it may be one of the best options in regard to clearing up your record.
Expungement is a process that permanently removes a prior conviction from an individual’s record. If you qualify for expungement, it can be an efficient method of clearing up your record, as prior convictions will no longer be accessible to the public. It is a relatively easy process with proper representation. Contact our office today for more information about expungements.
Sealing a record means that no one except government officials have access to it. This method of handling a prior arrest or conviction is a very successful option for many people. If you would like to know more about sealing records, contact our office today.
You are a different person now, and you deserve to be treated as such. Get in touch to discuss your record and what options may exist for clearing it. You can reach our office by phone or contact us online.
