Expungement & Sealing Attorneys
in Palm Beach, Florida

First off, why expunge or seal your records? Many people expunge or seal their records to prevent their criminal history from showing up on a background check. This may be a background check for a job, school, or even a housing application. In my experience, clients charged with crimes such as theft, fraud, battery, or solicitation to commit prostitution can find it particularly embarrassing or influential on a prospective employer and thus negatively affect their lives.

This process can take up to one year, so it is best not to wait until you have been rejected for a job or apartment rental before seeking to have your records expunged or sealed. If you are a first-time offender and your case was dropped, you may be eligible for an expungement. If you received a withhold, you may be able to have your records sealed.

It is never too late to start over.

4 Things to Know About Expungements

  • If you want to remove a misdemeanor or felony charge from your record, you need to file for an expungement, otherwise, it will still show up—EVEN IF YOUR CASE WAS DROPPED.

  • Mistakes on your petition could delay the process, which is why you should work with an experienced expungement attorney.

  • With certain exceptions, if your record is expunged, you will not have to disclose information about the arrest or conviction on job or housing applications.

  • Whether you are eligible for expungement depends on a number of factors, including the nature of the crime you committed.
