If you’re convicted of a crime, you probably feel despair and low self esteem. After all, your permanent criminal record now shows a black mark against you – a mark that is available to employers, schools, banks, and anyone who chooses to run a background check. Years after your conviction for a minor crime or a serious offense, you could face significant roadblocks that make it hard to get a job, a loan, or a professional license. The nature of expungement is often misunderstood by the public. A properly executed defense could result in your criminal record being wiped clean. Additionally, many serious felony offenses could be reduced to misdemeanors and then expunged from your criminal record. Additionally, your probation period could be terminated early for good cause and then expunged from your criminal record. There are many expungement options offered by the experienced and aggressive staff at Hawk Sing Ignacio & Waters.
Just because you may have committed a crime doesn’t mean that you’re a criminal. Youthful indiscretions and momentary lapses of judgment don’t affect your current behavior…but they could ruin the prospects that could help you build a happy, prosperous and upstanding life.

Why Get My Criminal Arrest Records Sealed & Destroyed?
Suppose you get arrested for a crime in Hawaii. The arrest does not result in conviction because (1) the prosecutor never files criminal charges, or (2) charges are filed but later dismissed in court, or (3) you are acquitted by a judge or jury.
The arrest record-police reports, finger prints, booking photos-do not just go away. These crime reports remain on file indefinitely with the government. Moreover, many employers and state licensing boards ask applicants not only whether they’ve been convicted of a crime, but also whether they’ve ever been arrested. Even if it does not result in a conviction, a mere arrest can create a stigma and raise questions that will adversely affect your opportunities.
Hawk Sing Ignacio & Waters can request that your criminal record be wiped clean. If this happens, the arrest shall be deemed never to have occurred and the person may answer accordingly any question relating to its occurrence.
