Lynn Prostitution and Solicitation Crime Defense Lawyer

Prostitution has been on the rise in Lynn for several years. Police officers are constantly watching to see who gets into cars with whom. Many of our prostitution cases have involved police officers “believing” that the defendant was soliciting a prostitute or looking for sex for a fee. When they see a casual conversation between someone driving and a woman they believe to be a prostitute they file charges. This by itself should not be sufficient to sustain a conviction. An experience lawyer knows this and in many of these instances can get your case dismissed. Moreover, recently undercover female police officers posing as prostitutes have made arrests claiming that they were solicited for sex by a perspective client. We have been able to show this to be untrue and had cases dismissed.

We understand that criminal accusations can be life-changing events. The toll that a pending case takes on the accused, his or her family and friends can be stiff. That is why any time you have a criminal case in Lynn or anywhere else you should hire an experienced, tough and knowledgeable defense attorney. Our office has extensive experience defending all types of crimes. We encourage you to call us with any questions at 617-263-6800 or online.
