Richmond Solicitation Defense Lawyer

Aggressive Defense in Solicitation and Prostitution Cases in Virginia

When you are arrested for solicitation or prostitution, you may feel compelled to open up to the police in hopes that they will be lenient. However, it is important to realize that talking to the police without first consulting with an attorney can mean the difference between a conviction and an acquittal. If you have already made statements about your solicitation or prostitution case, it is important to talk with a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights.

The Law Office of Susan E. Allen can provide aggressive advocacy and defense of your rights. I understand the seriousness of the charges against you and the criminal and collateral consequences you could face.

As a Midlothian criminal defense lawyer, I am passionate about protecting the rights of clients throughout the Richmond area, including Chesterfield, Henrico and surrounding areas. Contact my office or call me at (804) 592-2058 to set up a meeting to discuss your criminal defense needs.

If you are convicted for solicitation or prostitution — regardless of the facts of your case — you will be required to submit to a blood test. If Hep C is detected, the information is not privileged. It can be disseminated to police, local firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMT), correctional facilities and others.

Respectful, Confidential Solicitation Defense

When you come to the Law Office of Susan E. Allen, you can count on receiving respectful, confidential and individualized representation. As an experienced Richmond solicitation defense attorney , I understand how law enforcement creates traps and how these traps can lead to a client facing life-changing charges, such as potential jail time, fines, reputation damage and other consequences.

I also recognize that there are possible defense strategies to solicitation cases. Technical deficiencies or procedural defects in the case can result in the case being dismissed. From reviewing the police report to listening to your version of the events to examining video evidence, I look closely at all aspects of the case and develop a strong defense strategy.

Chesterfield Prostitution Charges? Attorney Susan E. Allen Can Help.

Have you been arrested and charged with prostitution? Too often, individuals in this situation feel compelled to talk to police and admit everything. However, there may be defense strategies that can help you avoid jail time, fines and other consequences. Discussing the details of your case with an experienced lawyer can make a considerable difference in your case. What law enforcement will not tell you are the flaws in its case. In order for someone to face prostitution charges, there must have been a bargain of sexual intercourse or other statutorily defined sex act for money. Anything that is not statutorily defined cannot result in prostitution charges. And, you cannot be convicted for prostitution charges for simply standing on a corner.

I understand the stakes are high in solicitation and prostitution cases, and I take great measures to resolve the matter in alignment with my client's needs. While many times, clients prefer to resolve outside of the courtroom for confidentiality purposes, others must fight charges at trial in order to avoid employment termination. I am prepared to fight for clients throughout the process.

To set up a private meeting to discuss your defense against solicitation or prostitution charges, contact my office online or call me at (804) 592-2058. My office is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., and evenings and weekends by appointment. Credit cards accepted.
