I have been serving the greater Orlando area since 1995. First as a prosecutor and then as a private attorney.
Since 2002 I have assisted people who have been charged with criminal offenses, traffic tickets, and has helped people expunge criminal records.
Today I focus my practice on criminal traffic matters, civil traffic accident claims, civil infractions, and sealing or expunging criminal arrest records (expungements).
Providing experienced legal representation in Orlando, Sanford, Kissimmee, Tavares, Deland, Daytona Beach, Titusville, and Viera (and will consider cases throughout the state of Florida).
The Two Parts To A Criminal Case
1. The Criminal Case
The criminal case begins upon arrest/notice-to-appear and ends with the final disposition/verdict of the case. It is very important, especially if this is your first offense, that your case is handled properly so that when it is finished the record can be expunged or sealed.
A criminal record that is not expunged or sealed will be there forever and will harm future employment opportunities as well as cause embarrassment.
2. The Expungement Case
Once a criminal case has reached the final disposition you should be prepared to expunge or seal the criminal record that exists. Many people think if the case is dismissed that there is no record. This is incorrect. You must already be looking to expunge or seal the record as soon as the case has been resolved.
In order for you to be prepared to do this you must have resolved your criminal case in a manner that allows the court to consider either expunging it or sealing it. This means that you must qualify and for that your best decision starts when you first hire a lawyer to represent you.
