    Sometimes, we make choices in life that require some fast-acting, professional assistance getting it put behind us. Russell McCormick and his team provided just that. I could not have asked for any better service... thank you for making it as painless as p
    - Tracy W.
    Called the McCormick office in trouble, with my freedom on the line. Russell answered the phone himself and confirmed he took on my type of cases. He took my information down and we scheduled a consultation. When I arrived for my consultation, he already had the information about my case,and a plan to come to my defense, already in tow! That made me confident in hiring Russell. However, my case had gotten thrown out (unbeknownst to me) and even though I paid the retainers fee, he sent me a refund.In reality he could have kept it. That right there is why he'll forever be my go to attorney if I needed one. Ready to defend and honest when need be. I appreciate him and Ms Dorothy and highly recommend. Thanks again!
    - Jones

    "He Never Failed to Impress"
    He has never failed to impress. I believe his experience as a former attorney prosecuting cases gives him extensive knowledge to defend the toughest case. I am most impressed with his professionalism, promptness, and dedication.
    - Donna S.
    "Exemplary Experience"
    The first conversation that I had with him gave me peace as a Mother knowing that my son would have the right attorney in his corner. He always responded to messages and his confidence and experience were exemplary.
    - Rhonda H.

How Long Does a Juvenile Crime Stay on Your Record in Florida?

When a minor is convicted of a crime, the offense will be added to their criminal record. This can have serious consequences for their future. For example, a criminal record can make it difficult for a minor to get into college or find a job. It can also impact their ability to secure housing or obtain a loan.

However, in some cases, a minor may be able to have their criminal record sealed or expunged. When a record is sealed, it is not destroyed but hidden from the public. This means that employers, landlords, and others cannot see the offense. However, law enforcement agencies and certain other entities can still access the record.
