Criminal Defense Representation in
Brevard County, Florida
I receive numerous calls every week from prospective clients who want to have their criminal history sealed or expunged. In some instances, these are people who are applying for jobs and are concerned that a particular incident will appear on a background investigation and thus make them ineligible for their desired position.
Let’s face it. Jobs are at a premium these days, and many business owners, recruiters, and human resource professionals say that they receive so many applicants for any given position that those applicants who do not have a clean criminal history are immediately removed from consideration. Employers are not even interested in an explanation from the applicant as to the facts or circumstances that led to the arrest, even if the charges were ultimately dismissed.
I also receive many calls from college students who are concerned that an arrest may affect their chance to get a particular internship or, upon graduation, are concerned that they will be entering a highly competitive job market with many other applicants who have a clean criminal history.
Getting a criminal history record sealed or expunged is not an easy task. It involves several steps and procedures that must be carefully followed. Failure to follow the proper procedures will result in denial of your application, even if you are otherwise eligible.
