Expungement Offers a Fresh Start
You don't have to live life with a criminal record hanging over your head. We can help you clear up your criminal record and move on with your life. An experienced record sealing or expunging lawyer can review the individual circumstances of your case, which offers the best opportunity for you to have your criminal record eliminated from your record permanently.
When your criminal record is sealed or expunged, you will essentially have a clean record. You will no longer be required to disclose on job, rental or loan applications that you were ever. However, there are certain rules you must follow in order to have your record sealed or expunged by the court. Our skilled legal team of West Palm Beach criminal defense lawyers can help ensure that you or your loved one has the best chance for clearing a criminal record.
You may qualify for a criminal record to be sealed or expunged if:
- Charges were never filed after your arrest
- You were arrested, but the charges were later dropped
- Your charges were dismissed in court
- You went to trial and were found not guilty
- You completed a diversion program and the charges were dropped

Although many crimes are eligible for expungement, there are a number of exceptions. By contacting our reputable law firm, you can learn more about whether the facts and charges in your case may qualify you to have your record sealed. Several crimes are not eligible for record sealing.
Even with crimes that are eligible for record sealing, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement still has the right to deny an expungement request. Getting help from an experienced record sealing lawyer who understands the expungement process will give you the best chance to successfully clear your criminal record.
