Get Your Life Back and Protect Your Future After an Arrest
A criminal record can change your life. Even after your case is dismissed or time is served, your criminal arrest record follows you until you do something about it. Fortunately, in Florida, sealing or expunging a criminal record is an option for many people who have been arrested or charged with a crime.
At the law firm of Robert Serrone, P.A., we specialize in sealing or expunging records so that once the process is complete, clients can legally say an arrest never occurred. Our main focus is the sealing and expungement of criminal records. You will not see solicitations for personal injury, divorce, bankruptcy or other matters. We do one thing and one thing very well — we get your record sealed or expunged.
- The legal record of your criminal history is effectively erased or destroyed, so your criminal record is not publicly known. (Certain government agencies may still have access to sealed criminal records.)
- Your record will not come up during a routine criminal background check by a prospective employer, landlord, credit card company or insurance agent, with a few exceptions.
- You can answer "no" to any application that asks if you have ever been arrested or convicted of a crime, including applications for employment, apartments, loans or insurance.
The benefits of record sealing and expungement cannot be overstated. With a tight job market, you do not want to give employers any reason to put you in the "no" pile.
