Sealing Your DUI Arrest in Florida

Your Future is Too Important to Risk

Counsel You Need from a Proven Tampa Record Sealing Lawyer

A DUI arrest can be embarrassing for the many otherwise law-abiding citizens who are charged and found guilty of this crime. Even if the drivers are ultimately not convicted of a DUI, they must legally answer “yes” if they’re asked if they’ve ever been arrested when applying for jobs or searching for housing.

If you are interested in having your DUI arrest or conviction sealed, it is important that you speak to a knowledgeable DUI lawyer in Tampa, FL today. This can be a sensitive petition process and many of those who pursue the sealing of their record fail due to simple administrative oversights legal counsel could have protected them from. At Taracks & Associates, we’re ready to help you navigate this process and ensure that your petition for record sealing is thorough and compelling.

Understanding Sealing vs. Expungement

If you are interested in getting rid of your DUI arrest or conviction record, it is first critical that you understand the difference between sealing and expungement. Sealing means that the record still exists and can be accessed by certain government agencies (but not the public). Expungements, on the other hand, purge the record all together, making it inaccessible to both government agencies and the public. In Florida, criminal convictions of any kind cannot be expunged.

You may have your DUI record sealed if:

  • You plead guilty or no contest
  • You are found guilty after a trial
  • The judge dismisses the charge or you are found innocent

If you are interested in expunging a DUI arrest record or sealing your DUI conviction record, our firm is ready to hear from you. Our experienced Tampa Expungement lawyer can guide you through his process and ensure that you move away from your DUI issue with as little impact on your life as possible. The advocacy you need is just a phone call away. Reach out to us at (813) 281-2897 now.
