A Fresh Start After Criminal Arrest Or Conviction
An arrest or criminal conviction doesn’t only affect your present, but your future and that of your family. A criminal record is public information, and anyone can find out about it. This can put you at risk in many ways. In some cases, an expungement is an excellent option to prevent this from happening.
An Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney On Your Side
Andrew M. Coffey, P.A., is a firm founded to protect members of my community from criminal allegations. As founding attorney, I have years of experience in criminal defense law. In fact, I am a board-certified criminal trial law specialist.
I use this skill not just to help clients with prior criminal matters, but with expungements. An expungement means that the record in question is sealed, meaning that it is not visible to the public. It still exists, but an ordinary background check will not reveal the record.
This can be a huge benefit when you are seeking housing, a job or admittance to an educational institution. However, an expungement can be tricky to arrange. Laws vary by area, and depending on your offense, you may not be eligible for an expungement. You need an attorney who knows the system and how to achieve this favorable result.
