You may feel hopeless after hearing a guilty verdict and being sentenced to time in prison, but there's a chance you can fight the conviction and win back your freedom.

It’s important to understand the trial you have just been through is simply a step in the judicial process. If your rights were violated in any way, you still have the opportunity to appeal the decision and possibly overturn your conviction.

However, to do this, you need a law firm with experience in the appellate process to review your case and design your appeal. Even if the lawyer who represented you at trial doesn’t think you have grounds for an appeal, it's worth having the Law Offices of Robert David Malove review your case and discuss your options with you.

Under Florida law, there are several motions that can be filed on your behalf to correct or vacate an unfair judgment.

If you're arrested for DUI, domestic assault, drug possession, or other criminal charge and had the charges dropped or dismissed; or you were found not guilty, it doesn’t seem fair that employers, creditors, or schools can still see the charges when they do a criminal background check, but that’s exactly what can happen. Attorney Robert Malove may have a solution for you.

In the state of Florida, arrest records can be either sealed or expunged under certain circumstances. A sealed record is placed under highly-restricted access while an expunged record is removed from records systems or files and destroyed.
