As a Jacksonville Criminal Attorney, I receive numerous calls from potential clients wanting to get their Criminal records sealed or expunged. Potential clients want their records sealed or expunged for any number or reasons, however, the most common are: jobs, loans, education, and career advancement. Unfortunately, if you have a CONVICTION for any criminal offense you record cannot be sealed or expunged.
Another question or misunderstanding I hear all the time is regarding the extent of having one’s record sealed or expunged. Many clients have call and have the desire to get their entire criminal history expunged or sealed. However, that is not how it works. Florida only allows one arrest to be sealed or expunged. Meaning, you can have multiple offenses sealed or expunged if they all occur within the same incident. In contrast, if you have multiple arrests, you are potentially only eligible to have one arrest sealed or expunged.
