About me

University of Florida Graduate

I have been practicing law since 1995. I started as an assistant state attorney working my way up through felony prosecutions. I started my private practice career in 2002. I help people in the area of criminal defense, record expungements, and traffic tickets.

Prior Military

I keep my practice limited to specific areas of the law. These limited areas allow me to practice the law with the knowledge to advise you and defend you to the best of my abilities. I practice throughout the state of Florida.

Former Assistant State Attorney

If you are looking for an attorney that will be honest with you about your situation and charge you a reasonable fee, please give me a call.

I can help you in the following areas:

  • Criminal Traffic Defense

  • Criminal Record Expungements throughout Florida

  • Traffic Ticket Defense

I cannot give out free legal advice. However, I can discuss your situation with you and help you decide whether hiring a lawyer is the right choice for you. Remember that I limit my practice area and cannot advise you of areas of the law I do not practice in.

  • Paula Colette Coffman

    I have known Mr. Dirga for more than 20 years. We worked together as prosecutors early in his career. Eric's knowledge of traffic and sealing/expungement law, as well as his familiarity with local court practices, is extensive. If he can help you, he will; if he cannot, he will tell you so. I endorse this honest advocate.

  • Neal Thomas McShane

    I strongly endorse Eric Dirga. I have known Eric since he started with the State Attorney’s Office in Orlando. He and I were opponents on numerous cases when he was a prosecutor. Eric is an extremely diligent, hard-working, conscientious, open-minded and intelligent attorney. He is very patient and highly professional in the way he handles his caseload and other attorneys. Eric is always well-prepared for court, very respectful to members of the court and opposing counsel, always represents himself in a highly professional manner, and is a genuine and sincere person. Eric is very knowledgeable in his understanding of the law and the court system. He is an outstanding lawyer who is demonstrating the same strong work ethic in private practice. I endorse/ recommend Eric Dirga.
