Restoration of Civil Rights in Florida

Experienced Attorneys When You Need It Most

Restoration of civil rights includes all rights of citizenship enjoyed by the person before his or her conviction, except the specific authority to won, possess or use firearms. A few years ago, the residents of the state of Florida voted to pass Amendment Four to the Constitution. Amendment Four included the right to vote as restoration of civil rights. There is nothing more rewarding then fighting for our clients to get back their right to vote and have their voices heard in government affairs.
