Many people get caught up in the criminal justice system due to misunderstandings, being at the wrong place at the wrong time, or a lack of a thorough investigation by law enforcement. When the unexpected happens, it can derail your job, your housing, your life overall. If the case does not result in a conviction, for those who have limited or no criminal history, sealing or expungement is the best way to put this terrible experience in the rearview mirror. The process takes many steps in Florida and requires a thorough familiarity with the law as there can be unexpected potholes on the road to a petition being granted. This is an area of opportunity for income consistency during the lean times that literally will change your client’s life.
