Expungements/ Pardons


If you have been arrested but not convicted of a crime, you be able to apply for having your arrest record expunged. We would be glad to review your arrest and case history to see if you meet the criteria and then help you file all the necessary documents. John Schum routinely assists cliens in processing expungements.


John has successfully obtained a pardon from the Governorfor a client; however, these are quite difficult to get. Applications must be screened and approved by the Department of Public Safety, the Hawaii Paroling Authority, and the Attorney General before going to the Governor.

If you have been convicted of a crime and are seeking a pardon from the Governor, John would be glad to evaluate your case to help determine the likelihood of obtaining a pardon. If he determines you have a good chance of being granted a pardon, John will help navigate you through the entire process, from filing the application to completing any required interviews, and then to receiving your pardon.
