If you have ever been arrested for a criminal offense in the State of Florida, The Law Office of John P. Contini, PA may be able to assist you in having your arrest record expunged or sealed. Florida law identifies certain criteria for sealing or expunging criminal cases or arrest records. You should be eligible for an expungement or sealing of your arrest record if you have never been adjudicated guilty of certain identified misdemeanor and felony offenses (committed as an adult and not just juvenile offenses), and if you have not previously had your arrest record sealed. As you might expect, there are exceptions in the law to this general rule, and we will advise you of those exceptions as well.
There are also other circumstances and criteria that must be met. The Law Office of John P. Contini, PA will advise and assist you every step of the way as we seek to expunge or seal your arrest record.
The benefits of having your criminal record sealed are enormous. Your arrest record will no longer be available for public viewing. This could enable you to apply for a better job, a security clearance, a government job, a professional license, etc.
Remember that not all criminal cases or arrest records are eligible for expungement or sealing, which is why it makes even more sense to get some real help in this area. The staff at The Law Office of John P. Contini, PA will go the extra mile to help you achieve the best possible result.
The costs involved in sealing your criminal record are very affordable, especially when you consider the fact that you may have been relegated to taking a lower paying position at work, or worse yet, the loss of your job or your professional license in your chosen vocation, as a result of a background check by your employer and the revelation of your old arrest record.

Contini, PA will work hard in making every attempt to have your arrest record sealed. Everyone deserves a second chance – Don’t you? Call today! 954-766-8810
