Have you been convicted of a felony in Florida and want to get your gun and voting rights back?
Do you qualify for a pardon and/or to restore civil rights from the Governor?
Getting your constitutional rights back after being convicted of a felony is crucial. This is often called clemency, a pardon and/or restoration of civil rights. Certain felonies in Florida qualify for a full pardon which means your prior felony will be pardoned and you will be entitled to get all your constitutional rights back, such as the right to vote, the right to bear arms, and the right to sit on a jury. In order to qualify for a full pardon in Florida, you must have completed your sentence at least 10 years ago. If you are just seeking to get just your gun rights back then your sentence must have been completed at least 8 years ago. The process to seek a pardon is complicated and requires the help of a skilled criminal defense lawyer to navigate The Florida Commission on Offender Review and the Office of Executive Clemency.
