Post Arrest / Conviction Services in Orlando
Bond Hearing & Reduction
The Florida Constitution gives every individual the right to bond or bail before conviction unless charged with a capital crime that is an offense carrying a penalty of life imprisonment or death. Exercising your right to a bond is the first step in fighting the criminal charges against you. When you are arrested, you will appear in front of a judge within 24 hours at a first or initial appearance hearing.
Expungement & Sealing of Records
For those who have been arrested but had their charge dismissed, having a record of your arrest can have serious repercussions on your future, whether it be getting a job, applying for further education or applying for a professional license. It is very easy for someone to perform a background check on you and unfortunately, even though you were only arrested, a record of that will still exist.
Violation of Probation
In Florida, if you are on probation or parole and fail to adhere to all the conditions of probation or parole, it may result in you being charged with a violation of probation, otherwise known as a VOP, or violation of parole. Proper understanding of the legalities of a probation violation is of utmost importance. Probation violations include failure to pass drug testing, possession of illegal substances, failure to report to a probation officer, failure to complete counseling program, removal of electronic monitoring, violation of location restrictions, being charged with a new crime, and failure to pay required court costs, fines or costs of supervision.
