We at Hochman and Goldin PA offer sealing and expunging services to our clients in order to keep their criminal histories private or out of public scrutiny. Criminal records can often be 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. 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 an opportunity to get old criminal charges Expunged or Sealed. 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.
Thus, 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). Additionally, we handle cases fighting speeding tickets, red light and camera violations, and toll violations (including MDX, toll-by-plate, and Sunpass).
