Program Summary

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.

Seth Hyman | Seth Hyman Law

Prior to starting Seth Hyman Law, Seth served the public of Orange County, Florida as an Assistant State Attorney from 2014-2017, receiving additional training and serving as a specialist in both the DUI and domestic violence units. Seth has had the unusual opportunity to work for multiple county prosecutors with notoriety in the press, Aramis Ayala (who refused to prosecute death penalty cases which were then all reassigned by then-Governor Rick Scott and was the first African American State Attorney in the history of Florida) and Jeffrey Ashton (lead attorney on the Casey Anthony trial and the first prosecutor in the United States to obtain a conviction with the use of DNA evidence in 1987), as well as an inspiring summer internship in 2005 for then-San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris.

II. There are more hurdles in this process than in the summer Olympics, but it’s worth it! | 12:10pm – 12:20pm
III. What does the client have to disclose and what comes up on a background check? | 12:20pm – 12:30pm
IV. Surprises, delays, war stories, oh my! | 12:30pm – 12:40pm
V. Don’t miss the many opportunities to recommend to potential clients and former clients the benefits of sealing and expungement | 12:40pm – 12:50pm
