Since being treated and healthy the DUI has caused two job offers to disappear. The person was schizophrenic at the time.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but in FL no conviction can be expunged, especially DUIs.
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
The mental illness component has nothing to do with eligibility for sealing/expungement. Either you qualify or you don't. Good luck with the job search.
This Q&A forum is no substitute for a personalized, private conversation concerning your situation. This response is a general answer to a question posed by an unidentified person. It is not intended to and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
