The Law Offices of Guy Seligman Offers Aid to Florida Residents for Criminal Record Expungement
Attorney Guy Seligman Can Help Florida Drivers Obtain Clean Criminal Records.
Online PR News – 25-February-2014 – As more and more employers perform background checks on
potential job applicants, it is more important than ever to have a clean criminal record. Convicted or not, just
being arrested can have serious consequences especially for first-time offenders. Fortunately, Florida law
allows citizens to seal or expunge a criminal arrest record; while the legal process is complicated, an
experienced attorney like Guy Seligman can help.
Fort Lauderdale attorney Guy Seligman is the expungement lawyer for Fort Lauderdale and all of Broward
County and has three decades of experience helping clients maneuver through the complicated maze of the
Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).
Our law office can help with complaints, warrants, reports, commitments, criminal arrest history
records, fingerprints and your rap sheet.
Clearing an individual’s criminal record can be complicated and require multiple court hearings, arguing the
case against the district attorney or explaining the situation to a judge. Guy’s legal team can handle the entire
process, “An expungement of your record, if you qualify, will result in the extraction and isolation of all records
on file with any court correctional facility or law enforcement agency,” said Guy. “Our law office can help with
complaints, warrants, reports, commitments, criminal arrest history records, fingerprints and your rap sheet.”
“Typically, clients come to us wanting to expunge prior arrests because of mistakes they made in the past.
These youthful slip-ups can be embarrassing and affect employment and relationships,” said Guy. “There are
several important factors to determine eligibility for expungement that we can discuss when you are ready.”
One possibility is that the FDLE has made a mistake. The FDLE provides a process by which individuals can
request that an error reported on their criminal arrest history be corrected. This could be an inaccurate charge
appearing on one’s record or inaccurate court information. “It may be surprising to know that many people
with common names have arrest records appearing on their criminal histories that belong to someone else,”
said Guy. “If you suspect that you have a mistaken arrest on your record or information posted there is
incorrect it can be fixed - and the sooner the better.”
It is important to note that an expungement does not destroy records; it extracts and isolates the records.
Under most circumstances, once an expungement has been granted those records cannot be disclosed. If
you have been granted an expungement you can respond that you have no conviction when asked a
question about having a criminal record. Exceptions to this rule include a person seeking a second
expungement, a person seeking a conditional discharge, and a person seeking to obtain employment in law
