In Florida, if you have a past felony conviction, you lose your right to vote, serve on a jury, and hold public office. Florida is one of only three states that permanently disfranchises people (deprive them of their citizenship) that have been convicted of a felony. Firearms privileges are lost upon conviction of any felony. A convicted felon may have their privileges restored by a pardon after an eight-year waiting period.

In a free consultation, we will carefully review your case and explain all of your options and what steps need to be taken to restore your civil rights
