Removing the Past
for a Better Tomorrow.

If you have been arrested in Miami or have a criminal record in Miami-Dade County, Florida, you must petition the court within the county for a criminal arrest record expungement or sealing. This is the first and most important step to removing that black mark from your past.

Attorney Eric J. Dirga has over 25 years experience with Florida expungements. Today he focuses his practice primarily on criminal arrest record expunging and sealing. He is dedicated to helping people get a second chance.

⚖ Miami Record Expungement Attorney

I have personally represented people seeking record expungements and sealing in Miami and Hialeah and all of Miami-Dade County since 2002. Miami courts rarely deny a petition to seal or expunge. This is usually because the State Attorney usually will not object. As long as we have all of our paperwork in proper order, these usually sail through.

Find out if your Miami-Dade County arrest record qualifies to be sealed or expunged.

When I represent you for your record expungement or sealing, I will try and make it as easy for you as possible. I will do the following:

  • Prepare all documentation
  • Obtain all necessary records to expunge record
  • Submit necessary application and documents
  • Answer all questions from FDLE (if any)
  • Prepare the petition, affidavits, and orders to expunge record
  • Serve all necessary parties
  • File the petition and necessary documentation to expunge record
  • Answer all objections from SAO (if any)
  • Represent you in court

All you have to do is:

  • Notarize three documents, and
  • obtain your fingerprints.

The cost for this service comprises the legal fee, the costs to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and to the Clerk of Court. You can find a breakdown of all the expungement fees and costs on my website.

The Benefits of an Expunged or Sealed Miami-Dade County Record

Florida law provides you with many benefits once your arrest record has been sealed or expunged. A criminal arrest record expungement or sealing destroys/removes official government records referring to your arrest from the public record. The public will no longer have access to your arrest information from online government sources, such as the Clerk of Court or Law Enforcement Agencies.

Additionally, private companies that sell public information will purge this information from their databases once they realize it is no longer a public record. This can be facilitated through notification or simply the passing of time.

You will have the legal ability to deny the arrest occurred. There are a few exceptions to this but this ability is one of the most powerful. Backing this up with a certified letter from the Clerk of Court indicating that no record exists is all that you should need.

If a Hearing is Required

If an in-person hearing is required, I encourage you to be present if you are within driving distance of the courthouse. If you cannot make it, I can appear without you and things are usually okay that way as well. Regardless, I will discuss all your options with you well before the hearing date.

Parking at the Miami-Dade Courthouse

There is dedicated paid parking outside of the courthouse. It is a parking lot and it is not very large compared to the courthouse but I have never had a problem finding a spot.
