Former Prosecutor and Compassionate, Dedicated Attorney Serving Leesburg, The Villages & All of Central Florida

Sealing Criminal Records in Leesburg

Seek a Brighter Future

It’s difficult enough in the current economy to find steady employment, but to do so while carrying a criminal conviction on your permanent record can make finding a job nearly impossible. Possessing a criminal record can make everything in your life harder: Getting a job, obtaining security clearance, getting a professional license, or even getting accepted into college or graduate school. Since criminal background checks are now a regular part of life, many people who have already learned hard lessons continue to unfairly suffer due to a felony or misdemeanor arrest from long ago.

Our expungement attorney can help rid you of this burden. At the Law Offices of Jody Fisher, we believe that everyone deserves a clean slate and that mistakes or allegations from the past should not hinder the future indefinitely. Fortunately, laws have been enacted that allow eligible citizens to petition for the criminal justice system to have records sealed permanently. Our firm can help you through this process.

With offices in the Leesburg community, we work with individuals throughout West Lake County. Give us a call at (352) 503-4111 today.

Expungement & Record Sealing

Expungement refers to the process of removing your criminal record if you were arrested but your charges were dismissed. Record sealing removes your record from public access and can be done if the court withheld adjudication of your arrest or if you were acquitted.

Regardless of whether you seek expungement or record sealing, the process can be extremely complicated – even just one error on your initial petition can set you back. Having a Leesburg expungement attorney working on your case positions you for a better chance of success. Our team understands the process and knows how to create a strong petition.

Eligibility Requirements

A criminal record – even if you were never convicted of the crime and were only arrested – can stick with you forever. Unfortunately, there are some criminal charges and convictions that cannot be expunged or sealed.

Examples of these include:

  • Most sex crimes (any offense that requires registration as a sexual predator or sexual offender)
  • Arson
  • Robbery
  • Homicide and manslaughter
  • Kidnapping
  • Stalking
  • Child abuse or abuse of an elderly person or disabled adult

If you are hoping to seal or expunge your criminal record, please call the Law Office of Jody L. Fisher at (352) 503-4111 or contact us online today.

  • Divorce Case

    “My Fiancé was going through a very rough divorce before we met Mrs. Fisher. He had a Lawyer who didn’t care how his case turns out which wasn’t fear to us. He met with Mrs. Fisher and she took on his case. She made sure her and her staff were on top on everything. They kept us informed about any little changes and made sure we didn’t stress. She didn’t just come to court when it was time to come to court, she was hands on with everything from the beginning to the end. We didn’t know what our outcome would be with the first lawyer, but with Mrs. Fisher, we had confidence that everything would work out for the best. If you’re looking for a great, respectful, outstanding, hands on lawyer, Mrs. Fisher and her staff is your best go.You can stop your worrying and be able to relax while they handle it all. I’m so Grateful for her staff because now my spouse is divorced and we are now planning our wedding. Thank you Mrs. Fisher and your staff! My family and I will be forever Grateful. L. Edwards”
