Alternate Sentencing/Expungements

Helping Clients Preserve Their Freedom or Clear the Record

If you have been convicted of a criminal charge and are facing a potential jail or prison sentence, the impact on your life is obvious. The benefits of being able to serve your time in a way that keeps you out of prison are equally obvious, as are the benefits of having your name and record wiped clean after you have served your time. Whether you are seeking alternate sentencing or an expungement, we will work to help you preserve your family life, your job, your freedom and your future.

At the Century City Law Offices of Arna H. Zlotnik, A Professional Law Corporation, in Los Angeles, California, we represent clients in Los Angeles County and throughout Southern California. Our goal is to put more than 30 years of proven experience behind the needs of every client and find a custom and strategic solution that protects your rights and your freedom.

An Alternative to Prison

If you are facing criminal charges that could result in jail or prison time, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer with access to the full range of alternative sentencing options. Attorney Arna Zlotnik can aggressively represent your interests in court in order to help you pursue options in misdemeanor criminal convictions or eligible felony crimes such as:

  • House arrest
  • Electronic monitoring
  • Community Service (including CalTrans work)
  • Drug rehabilitation
  • Therapy
  • Probation, supervised or unsupervised
  • Restitution
  • Restorative justice
  • Diversion programs such as drug or mental health diversion

Particularly if this is your first offense, there are options for helping keep you out of the prison system. In certain circumstances, we may even be able to get a civil compromise where the victim of an offense agrees to a recommended dismissal of the charges.

Almost any crime can have an alternative sentence that minimizes intrusion into your life.

Clearing Your Name

A criminal conviction doesn’t always have to be a black mark on your record. Many criminal convictions can be expunged as long as all obligations have been fulfilled. A clean criminal record can help you avoid problems in applying for a new job, obtaining certain loans or financial aid, or applying for admission to college.

Getting an expungement can, however, be a complicated process. It is important to talk with a skilled and reliable attorney about the specifics of your case, your conviction and your criminal record in order to find out if expungement is an option for you.
