Hollywood Identity Theft Defense Lawyer

The shift of banking, shopping, bill paying and other commerce to the Internet has resulted in an increase in the amount of identity theft — the use of another person’s personal information without permission, most often for financial gain. State and federal laws call for harsh penalties, including lengthy jail sentences, for anyone convicted of identity theft.

At Magilligan Law in Hollywood, I provide knowledgeable and assertive defense against identity theft charges. My previous work experience as a prosecutor with the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office provides me valuable insight into how the state builds and prosecutes these cases. I am able to assess the strength of any case against my clients and respond accordingly.

I have experience with a wide variety of identity theft cases, including:

  • Credit card theft
  • Mortgage loan fraud
  • Tax-related ID theft
  • Insurance fraud

When it makes sense to go to trial, I have extensive courtroom experience and feel confident advocating for my clients. If negotiating an alternative resolution is more appropriate, I have a thorough understanding of the flexibility that prosecutors have, and I am familiar with the full array of treatment programs and alternative resolution options.

An Experienced Lawyer With The Resources To Protect You

Technology has become a great equalizer in terms of capability and productivity across all industries. The legal profession is no exception. A solo practitioner like myself can access the same records and provide the same high level of legal counsel that a large law firm provides, usually for significantly less cost because of the lower overhead.

In fact, if you are my client, you are assured of working directly with me from the initial consultation through the resolution of your case. At larger firms, it is not uncommon to have a legal assistant or junior attorney handle the bulk of the work on a case. Because I learn every detail about your case myself, I am able to negotiate from a position of strength or litigate with full confidence.

Get A Sense Of Where You Stand

Many cases are won or lost in the early stages. Contact me as soon as you are charged with identity theft or even when you become aware that you are being investigated in connection with a crime. I will review the facts of the case and recommend the best course of action.

My Hollywood office is conveniently located off of I-95 between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. I represent clients in Miami-Dade County, Broward County and throughout south Florida.
