Do You Have Any Experience With Robert C. Hughes III or Global Legal Resolution?

Question:

Dear Steve,

I read your article/review of Global Legal Resolution, Inc from many years ago and this is definitely a scam.

The two con-men are Robert C. Hughes III and partners.

He is not an attorney as declared in the advertisement you referenced, as a matter of fact, there were 6 complaints against him in recent years.

Hughes moved on to M Legal Global, LLC as a judgment collector for hire, claiming he was also an attorney. I and several other people like me who had large judgments were solicited by him to hire his firm, give him retainer fees, and then they supposedly were to collect and take a contingency.

This never happened and they just took the money.

There are now at least 2 lawsuits including me to recover the retainer fees.

The Florida Bar concluded he was acting as an attorney and demanded a Cease and Desist. I can go on and on about his fraud but only if you are interested, but

I want to thank you for making the audio of his seminar available and the advertisement for it. It’s clearly his MO to talk big and offer nothing.

Do you have any more experience with Mr. Robert C. Hughes III or Global Legal Resolution, LLC out of Florida?

There is a group of victims that lost a lot of money to him and his firm while acting like attorneys.

Thanks,

Dave

Dear Dave,

I think you were talking about this past post.

I can’t think of any new information that comes to mind since I posted that.

I did search Robert C. Hughes with the Florida Bar and it did not show any attorney licensed to practice law by that name.

There is an attorney licensed to practice law and in good standing in Georgia named Robert C. Hughes III. I don’t think that is the guy you are talking about.

I did find a website for M Legal Global but it does not provide any identification of who is behind it or the business location.

The BBB Lists M Legal Global with that domain name being located at 970 Lake Carillon Dr, Saint Petersburg, FL 33716-1129. – Source

The BBB also lists management as GM Legal UK and MLG-USA INC. However, a search of Florida records only shows GM Legal UK LTD and the manager of M Legal Global.

The Florida registration for M Legal Global LLC says the managing member is:

GM LEGAL UK LTD
86-90 PAUL STREET
LONDON EC2A 4NE

However, a search on 11-4-2021 of Companies House in the UK, where businesses register, could not locate any company by that name.

The State of Florida Bar provides the following advice for any consumer that feels they have been harmed.

“For individuals who are unsure if a lawyer has acted ethically or who are dissatisfied and wish to consider whether filing a complaint may be appropriate, The Florida Bar operates the Attorney Consumer Assistance Program (ACAP). ACAP staff, including attorneys, handle complaints and may be able to resolve problems before a complaint is filed. The ACAP telephone number is toll-free: 1-866-352-0707.” – Source

The best advice I can provide for anyone thinking of hiring these entities is to do their own research and feel confident they are doing what is best for them.

I would recommend that anyone considering using such a company should read How to Check Out a Business or Company to Avoid Getting Scammed or Ripped Off.

Sincerly,
