Being arrested can be a very difficult experience. At the Law Offices of Friedman and Abrahamsen, we understand your situation and how overwhelming it can be. It is important to remember that just because you were arrested does not mean that you will be convicted. In fact, if you were recently arrested, formal charges may not yet be filed. In some cases, formal charges are never filed, or formal charges are filed for a less severe offense than you were arrested for. Contacting an attorney early on in the process can be important as an attorney can attempt to keep charges from being filed or possibly only have a lesser offense charged. What offenses are charged is important because you may be seeking to have this arrest removed from your record by having it sealed or expunged in the future. In Florida only certain offenses are eligible to be sealed or expunged. At the Law Offices of Friedman & Abrahamsen we can explain which charges can be sealed and expunged and help plan a defense with the goal of having your charges dismissed. If you are a student, you may also have an administrative hearing with your college or university for a violation of the student conduct code. We will represent you at your hearing to try and mitigate the potential impact on your academic career. Please give us a call today and let us explain why we feel we are uniquely qualified to defend you and attempt to get your charges dismissed or reduced with the ultimate goal of trying to mitigate the impact this arrest will have on your future employment, education, and professional associations.
