FL is a one and done State.
You get one bite at the seal / expunge apple.
You may consider the option (although it is not really so much of an option as it is a crap shoot and in fact, the odds are much better at craps) of seeking an award of executive clemency.
In that regard everything that you ever wanted to know about clemency - "the pardon process" - can be found at the following link : https://www.fcor.state.fl.us/clemency.shtml .
Sadly, at best an award of executive clemency is a veritable lottery drawing, and at worst it is truly a political process which is housed in a shroud of alleged fairness. In point of fact the odds of getting an award of a gubernatorial pardon are probably close to those for winning the lottery.
Still, I hope 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.)
Once in a lifetime, that is it as far as my understanding goes.
