Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/19/2014 -- Hochman and Goldin, P.A., a South Florida law firm, is now offering sealing and expungement services to clients wishing to keep their criminal histories private or out of public scrutiny. Clients can learn more about these services through the firm’s official website at HochmanAndGoldin.com.
According to information provided on the website, criminal records are often a significant detriment to an individual’s daily life. Old criminal charges will otherwise remain permanently recorded and publicly accessible, which can have negative consequences for seeking employment, finding a home to rent, and maintaining one’s social reputation. As the firm notes, even dismissed cases can be harmful, as information regarding one’s arrest is still available.
However, if a case was dismissed or the client is granted a withhold of adjudication, Hochman and Goldin, P.A. offers the services of professional Miami Expungement Lawyers to help seal and/or expunge old criminal charges. Barring some exceptions, a sealed or expunged case may be lawfully denied or unacknowledged, and the client’s arrest will not show up in a background check.
Determining one’s eligibility for either of these services may be difficult for those outside of a legal background. The law firm notes that trying to do without the services of an attorney can cause delay or necessary costs; an incomplete or faulty application will be rejected and lead to significantly longer processing times.
Therefore, Hochman and Goldin, P.A has advised clients to call their firm and speak to an attorney, who can determine the right course on a case-by-case basis, and who will also represent their clients in court (which will save clients both time and money). Services are available in Spanish and can be acquired by phone, mail, fax, email, or walk-in. A professional Hochman and Goldin Miami Traffic Ticket Lawyer can also be obtained in this way.
