obtain a certified criminal disposition for all of your arrests and take them to an experienced immigration attorney who understands the immigration consequences of criminal convictions

You really should consult with an experienced immigration attorney about this.

You need to present the attorney with all court records related to the incident. The attorney will need to take a close look at all the court records, to determine whether or not you are eligible to apply.

You need to proceed with caution here, because when you submit your application, you are informing US immigration officials of your identity, location, and criminal history. Please consult with an immigration attorney in order to prevent problems.

You might still qualify, depending on the exact charge and the outcome. Definitely talk to an immigration lawyer before going forward. If you don't qualify, you are exposing yourself to the government and could have other problems.
