Los Angeles Alternative Sentencing Lawyer

Stay Out of Jail

Alternative Sentencing Options

When you lose your freedom to a jail or prison sentence, every aspect of your life could be at risk: your job, your marriage, your life itself. You can make another dollar but you can’t make another day.

If you’re facing criminal charges that could result in jail or prison time, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the range of Los Angeles alternative sentencing options, and who aggressively represents your interests in court. You need an attorney from the law office of Eisner Gorin LLP.

With a combined 50 years of legal experience and credentials that few law firms can match, the premier criminal defense lawyers at Eisner Gorin LLP include a former District Attorney and a “State-Bar Certified Criminal Law Specialist.”

Alternative sentences are often the best option for the courts, for society, and for our clients. We help judges see our clients as real people, not just as offenders. Putting a real face on your case can open the door to creative alternative sentencing options that actually make a difference, rather than just punish.

  • Are there extenuating circumstances?
  • Has drug addiction or alcohol abuse played a role?
  • Do you have an underlying mental health issue?

Alternative Sentencing Options

Alternative sentences are an option for misdemeanor criminal convictions and many types of felony crimes, especially if this was your first offense. But even if you’ve had a few prior convictions, we’ll look for options:

  • House arrest
  • Electronic monitoring
  • Community service (including CalTran) and community labor
  • Drug rehabilitation (Proposition 36), halfway houses, or NA
  • Alcohol treatment programs, halfway houses, or Alcoholics Anonymous
  • Gambling addiction treatment programs
  • Therapy
  • Probation, supervised or unsupervised
  • Restitution
  • Restorative justice

Civil Compromise

We can sometimes get the victim of an offense to agree to or to recommend dismissal of the charges if our client takes certain actions. For example, in cases of shoplifting or theft we may get a store owner to drop charges in exchange for restitution and/or treatment. Civil compromise sections of the penal code can also apply to battery and “hit and run” cases.

Almost any crime can have an alternative sentence that minimizes intrusion into your life. Contact a Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer at Eisner Gorin LLP, by e-mail or call us toll-free at 877-781-1570.

We speak English, Russian, Armenian, Spanish, Farsi, and Hebrew.
