Want A Clean Record?

Having an arrest on your record can haunt you for the rest of your life. This information is public. It can be seen by landlords, educational institutions and employers, and it can influence their decisions. Many people with criminal records have a difficult time finding a job and face other challenges because of what might have been a one-time mistake.

Thankfully, there are options available to prevent the past from ruining your future. You may be able to have a record expunged or sealed, depending on the circumstances. At The Law Office of Cheyenne Whitfield, P.A., in Brandon, we provide guidance in these criminal law matters to people in the Tampa Bay area and the surrounding parts of Florida.

Expungement Versus Record Sealing

As long as you were not adjudicated guilty of the criminal charge, you may be eligible for either expungement or record sealing. A dedicated lawyer can help you determine which option is available based on your situation.

Sealing a criminal record means that the public will no longer have access to it. However, some government entities and related parties may be able to access your record.

Expunging a criminal record essentially removes it completely. The public cannot access it, nor can those government entities and related parties that might have been able to access it had it been sealed. However, a court order may allow them to access the record.

We will review your record, determine what options are available and help you clear your record so you can move on with your life.
