Your criminal record does not have to follow you. It may be possible to have your record legally sealed. The sealing process is complicated and needs the attention of an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
At The Umansky Law Firm, our Orlando criminal defense attorneys receive calls every day from many people who have some type of criminal activity in their past. They learn this history has been following them through their life, and want to know what they can do about it. Sealing your record can clear your past offenses and give you a fresh start at a second chance.
Many people who have been involved with the criminal justice system, either through an arrest, or plea of no contest, or sentenced to a withhold of adjudication, find that even a minor involvement in the criminal justice system or an arrest can remain on their record, forever preventing them from achieving many of their goals in life.
Do Not Let Your Criminal Record Hold You Back
Perhaps it was an offense committed 15 years ago, or a misdemeanor offense committed when you were younger. It doesn't matter how long ago it was, or what the offense was. Once you are in the criminal justice system, your past can follow you, and it can interfere with your ability to move forward in your life.
The existence of a criminal record may reduce or eliminate your ability to achieve the many things that you are trying to accomplish, including:
- Obtaining gainful employment
- Obtaining or maintaining academic enrollment in a university
- Eligibility for scholarships
- Developing a career
- Advancing in your employment
This negative impact interferes in a person's ability to become educated, earn a livelihood, and support themselves and their loved ones.
There are many good, hardworking citizens who, at one time in their life – perhaps when they were much younger, found themselves involved in a criminal act and became part of the criminal justice system. They had no intention of becoming a "career criminal," simply made a mistake, went through the system to pay for that mistake, learned from that mistake, and want to simply get on with their lives and move forward to reach goals that will take them down a road far removed from their past.
