Sex Crimes

If you have been charged with a sex crime, such as sexual battery, indecent exposure, sex trafficking, statutory rape, or another related crime, you face an oppressive amount of stigma from the start. Still, you should not feel compelled to accept a plea deal just to avoid the stigma. Our firm will provide you with the legal defense you deserve.

Telemarketing Fraud

Though you may operate a legitimate business where calling potential customers or clients is involved, the federal and Florida state government may still charge you with telemarketing fraud. This is because prosecutions of these schemes have increased drastically in recent years. Don’t take these charges lightly. Hire an experienced law firm like Magilligan Law to represent you.
