Regardless of whether or not your record is expunged, you're going to have to disclose the incident on your applications

But it sounds like you have good stuff for an addendum.

You should definitely disclose this. But if you, as you seem to indicate, have learned your lesson and have turned it into something positive, a good addendum can certainly mitigate any negative impression this could give. Please be aware that admissions officers don't want explanations or excuses. They want to know what you took from the experience, and want to be certain that this is not a reflection of your personality or your fitness to be a lawyer. If you can show that in an addendum, you should be good.
