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


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 in you are interested, but I want to thank you for making the audio of his seminar available and the advertisement for it. Its 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.




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

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:


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

The State of Florida Bar provides the following advice for any consumer that feels someone in the legal field has harmed them.

“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 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 so they can feel comfortable with whatever they decide.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.

  1. Charles there is far more!
    Check out the US government case regarding Taxes in CA in a case with ZZZ.
    Check out 3 claims of bankruptcy in 9 years in Pinellas County.
    Check out the AZ filing of a federal case in which there are claims to be an attorney.
    Check out the KY case.
    Look up the Bar info in CA and KY.
    At least 14 victims and counting…..

  2. We have engaged MLG, LLC and are dealing with Robert Hughes on collecting a $90M Judgment. I am looking into whether he’s real or not. This board is very helpful. Is there currently a criminal investigation of Robert?

  3. Hi Steve,
    The attorney with the same name in GA is not the same. The correct man lives in FL and is about age 75. His scheme is to set an entity, run the scam for a while (until he gets into trouble) then changes entities. I have traced him to these entities whereby there are court cases or other similar indicators of scam. MTS International, Inc. , M Legal Global, LLC, MLG-USA, Inc, Global Legal Resolution, Inc, CCCRT International, Inc. CBA INV, Inv. Thank you again for providing the recording and email advertisement of his from past years. We plan to use that in our lawsuit, as well as another victim’s case also plans to . They are both in Pinellas County, FL Court and can be followed by looking up David Rutan vs Robert Hughes et al. and the other is Shaliece Hall vs Robert Hughes et al. She reached out to me after she found by case on public records. Thanks again!

  4. Thank you Steve,
    MLG (aka M Legal Global, LLC) are both registered in Florida however are definitely scams. They claim they are attorneys with a staff of international attorneys and then sweet talk you into paying non-refundable retainers to help you collect your debts. The funds are then used by the owners to pay for personal expenses, luxury items (boat, car etc), transferred to their others affiliate companies for investments and also to pay the owners back for a “Promissory Note” the principal, which is suspected to be a fake Note. Its a guise to pay no income tax when its principal repayment only. I know of many ‘clients’ who lost money to MLG and this scheme by networking and also filing a lawsuit. Prior and existing ‘client’s started calling me after it was publicly filed in court. There is more to this story. One of the owners/officers/agents is Robert C Hughes III. He is the one I only dealt with and which you provided the alert on and its affiliate company Global Legal Resolution, Inc. Its chilling to hear the 59 min recording of him talk about asset protection when he has filed for bankruptcy 3 times and I know at least the last one in 2018 was dismissed after he failed to provide tax returns, P&L statements etc on his hidden companies where he took in at least $200,000 in ‘retainers’ from clients which ended up to the most part spent on personal and luxury items. I have the records to prove this 100%. If you know of any other victims please let me know. THere is a criminal investigation into the Ponzi Scheme.
