The consequences for being arrested and charged with a criminal offense extend beyond just the criminal penalties associated with the particular charge; they can also impact your job opportunities, reputation in the community, future earnings, and can even affect personal relationships. In the information age we live in today, details about arrests, charges, and even convictions are readily accessible to the public at large….even if the charges were ultimately dropped or dismissed!
As a remedy for first time criminal offenders, expunction and sealing are available to remove the traces of certain criminal charges. Florida Statutes 943.0585 and 943.059, set forth the criteria that must be met in order to be eligible to have an adult criminal history record sealed or expunged.
It is important to consult with an experienced attorney regarding any questions you may have relating to sealing and expunction, and whether these options are available for your particular situation. Certain offenses are not eligible for expunction; likewise, there are specific guidelines relating to the entered plea and final disposition of the criminal matter that may prevent eligibility for sealing or expunction.
If you or a loved one have been arrested or charged with a crime, have had criminal charges dropped or dismissed and would like to seal or expunge the criminal record, call Blick Law Firm today at (813)931-0840. Think quick, call Blick.

Auto accidents can be devastating, and injuries sustained in an accident can begin a timeline of treatment and therapy that can take months to complete. If you are involved in an auto accident, it is always important to know what steps to undertake to protect yourself and your potential personal injury case.
If you are involved in an auto accident, it is critical to first seek medical attention. After an auto accident, it is best to go immediately to the hospital or other treatment facility to determine the extent of your injuries and pinpoint the necessary steps of rehabilitation that might be required.
If the injuries sustained in the accident are not severe or life threatening, it is important to gather necessary information about the accident for purposes of supporting your potential legal suit. Important information to gather includes:
Identification of all occupants: including names, phone numbers, addresses and even emails.
Photos of the Damage: photograph all damages, including both vehicle and surrounding property damage.
Photos of the Accident Scene: photograph any debris, skid marks and also the position of the vehicles involved in the collision; and
Information of Responding Officer(s) and Ambulance: Request any and all identifying information on the officer(s) and Ambulance that respond to the incident
Injured parties should also always contact an attorney for legal consultation and general information on how to proceed following an accident. In the event an insurance company contacts you regarding your injury claim, do not offer any recorded statements without first consulting with an attorney.

During the transition into the New Year, most people spend extra time celebrating with friends and family. However, every New Year people tend to get carried away in their celebrations and face the risk of being arrested. Due to an increased tendency to behave irresponsibly during these festive times, arrests for DUI, trespass, disorderly conduct, and various alcohol related offenses tend to increase accordingly. It is important to remember to always be responsible during and after New Year’s celebrations, but also to be aware of your rights in the event that you are arrested.
When confronted by police, people often become nervous because they are unsure if they may be in violation of some ordinance or law. The difference between merely being detained by police and arrested creates different limitations to your rights. It is important to understand what you can do. Police may stop you, and it is not considered an arrest if you are just briefly detained.
A detainment occurs when an officer stops and questions a person of interest, generally for a shorter period of time, and requires less than “probable cause” to make a detainment. An officer can detain anyone if they have a “reasonable suspicion” that the person committed or was involved in any criminal activity.
In the event you are stopped for questioning, it is important to remain calm, be polite, keep your hands visible at all times, and do not attempt to flee. You do have the right to remain silent, however, it is best to identify yourself first and then notify the officer that you are exercising your right to silence.
If you are unsure of the situation, you can ask the officer why you have been detained and if you are under arrest. If at that time you are not under arrest, you have the right to leave. If the officer proceeds to arrest you, you have the right to speak to a Criminal Defense Attorney.
An arrest occurs only upon a determination of “probable cause”, this means the officer must have more than just a “suspicion”, the officer must have a “reasonable belief” that you committed a crime. Once the arrest is made, an officer can lawfully conduct a search incident to arrest of your person for weapons, evidence, and contraband. At this point, the officer can hold you in jail for up to 24 hours or until a warrant is issued for the charges.
Anytime you are stopped and arrested it is important to quickly consult a Criminal Attorney regarding your rights and advice on what you should do. If you have been arrested for a criminal offense, or even issued a citation for a traffic violation, call Blick Law Firm today at (813) 931-0840 to schedule an appointment for a free 15 minute consultation with attorney Michael Blickensderfer.

Domestic Violence is a serious criminal offense that occurs frequently in Florida, and the sensitive nature of the offense is sometimes diminished by a misconception that it is often falsely reported. However, the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics considers Domestic Violence to be one of the most chronically underreported crimes, and according to reports it is estimated that 85 % of Domestic Violence victims are women
Domestic Violence is statutorily defined in Florida as “any assault, aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, sexual battery, stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member by another family or household member.”
Incidents of Domestic Violence effect Floridians daily, and according to the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the following Domestic Violence statistics took place between 2010 and 2011 alone:
- 113,378 crimes of domestic violence were reported to Florida law enforcement agencies resulting in 67,810 arrests.
- Florida’s certified domestic violence centers provided 477,489 nights of emergency shelter to 15,789 survivors of domestic violence and their children.
- Advocates created 87,474 tailored safety plans, provided a total of 484,950 hours of outreach and counseling services, and answered 130,393 domestic violence hotline calls from individual seeking emergency services, information, and safety planning assistance.
Domestic Violence continues to be a growing problem that effects all genders, all races, and all ages. Additionally, the effect on children who witness incidents of Domestic Violence is extensive; and families must be made aware of the trauma, and life altering consequences that can occur due to exposure to Domestic Violence.
