For Florida criminal records, Eric J. Dirga has assisted hundreds of people living in and out of the state to seal or expunge their Florida criminal history records. Usually this will not require the client to return to Florida. The consultation and processing can be done over the phone and via the internet and/or the mail.
Expunging Florida criminal records is covered with the services provided here. But what about people that have criminal records from arrests in other states? Mr. Dirga was concerned about that and decided to do something about it.
SealandExpunge.com is a website designed to be a one stop resource for people throughout the country to find an experienced expungement lawyer anywhere. The simplicity of the site is its key feature. A person looking for an attorney to expunge a criminal record simply goes to www.sealandexpunge.com, clicks on the state they were arrested in and then clicks on the county where the arrest occurred. An attorney's contact information and brief biography should appear. The person can now call the local attorney directly.
Expungements in Other States
For arrests that occurred in other states I cannot help you. I thoroughly know and understand Florida's law on expungements and sealing of records. I do not know other states' laws. That is why it is important to consult with and hire a local attorney to handle your case. That is why www.sealandexpunge.com was created.
To be sure, there are other nationwide services out there. They offer a very cheap price and claim they can seal or expunge a record in just about every state. Unfortunately, what you are paying for is a service. They charge a low fee and then hire an attorney in the state that you were arrested in for an even lower price. The old addage
You get what you pay for is really appropriate in this instance. I have been hired by people that had gone with such a service only to have to pay for another attorney (me) to go back and finish the job. Sometimes even having to file an appeal (very costly!) to fix the situation.
The bottom line - hire a local attorney. One that knows the laws in that state and one you can speak to directly. Talk to the attorney that will actually handle your case. It makes a difference. Make sure it is not just a service handing off your request to an unknown lawyer you don't even know.
