Knowledgeable and informative
I am very satisfied with the service I was provided by Mr Eric Dirga. I lived in Florida many years ago, but now live in Ohio. He was able to help me from afar. I was kept in the loop throughout the process.

Expungement
Mr. Dirga makes this process extremely simple for those who do not understand the law and explains everything. He made this six month journey stress free. Mr. Dirga sends in depth instructions regarding the steps you need to complete and he takes care of the rest. Any questions I had were always answered within 24 hours. I am so thankful for everything he has done for me, truly. I am now able to move forward with my career. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Dirga as your attorney!! He is the absolute best!

Expungement
I live in another state so I didn’t have the time to come to FL and try to get my record expunged. I found Eric to be straightforward and efficient. I’m extremely happy with my result and would recommend him and team without hesitation.

Amazing work!!!!!
I had an expungement that Eric Dirga helped me to process. He was very responsible and reliable. He was always open to respond to any question throughout the process. The price was perfect even he allows to do monthly payments. The process was finished in the estimated time and with a successful outcome. Also, he provided information about what to do after the expungement.

Great Communication and Won The Case
Working in marketing I was very impressed by his information and flow. I was looking for information regarding a red light ticket and he had it all laid out. What to do, what not to do, when it makes sense to hire. He was professional, easy to work with and always a step ahead. I hope I don't need to use his services again anytime soon but definitely will use him if needed. I actually just referred him to one of my friends.

Great attorney
I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Dirga to seal my record. With my busy schedule, I dreaded having to make appointments to get this process done. Mr. Dirga made the process painless and very easy. We communicated via e-mail, not one office visit needed. He provided very helpful instructions and kept me informed. Within 11 months my record was sealed. I highly recommend Mr. Dirga.

A Great Help!
I am very happy with the services of Eric Dirga. He was very professional and responsive on handling my traffic citation to a successful resolution (dismissal). Other law firms I contacted on this matter were not as responsive as Eric and I am very fortunate to have utilized his services. I highly recommend Eric!
