Expungement in Florida
Expungement in Florida
If you are interested in sealing or expunging your record, contact Tampa expungement attorney William B. Wynne today to discuss your options. Despite popular opinion, a criminal arrest record does not simply disappear over time. It doesn’t matter if the charges were dismissed against you, or if you were acquitted at trial. The fact that you were arrested or charged with a criminal law violation will remain public record permanently unless a judge orders it to be sealed or expunged. Even without a conviction, a criminal case can cause people serious problems with employment, housing and other important areas. In today’s modern age of high speed information, it is becoming increasingly popular and economically viable for both public and private parties to conduct background checks.

We Can Help
If you are eligible, expunging or sealing your criminal record will prevent others from discriminating against you based on your criminal history. What exactly does this entail? We start by reviewing your criminal history and then applying for eligibility through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). After receiving a certificate of eligibility from the FDLE, we then petition the court to seal or expunge your arrest record. Once this process is complete, and your record is officially expunged, you may lawfully deny or fail to acknowledge anything having to do with the criminal case.
The Law Office of William B. Wynne, P.L.L.C., provides expungement and sealing services throughout the entire state of Florida. If you would like to expunge or seal your criminal record, please call today for a free consultation.
