Mr. Magilligan represented my case of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was able to push my original court date further to a different court. On the day of the hearing the police officer showed up without the evidence and the case was closed. David was very punctual and informative; also extremely helpful and knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs a lawyer.
I arrived at the office of David Magilligan uniformed an looking for guidance. After discovering his great human quality, he gave me the alternatives that could help me. Today he is my attorney. He's always there for me, returns my phone calls, and informs me of the progress of my case. David Magilligan is an excellent attorney and a great person; he is considered and respectful, a family man who is always trying to help.
I would recommend Mr. David Magilligan to anyone. He did a great job in advising & helping me, I immediately felt comfortable after my very first meeting and was treated with respect to make a very stressful period of my live bearable. he fully explained to me each step of the process of the case and answered all of my many questions and concerns. At the end i didnt have to serve any time in prison.
I haven't had a great deal of experience with lawyers or legal issues in general. Needless to say I was very nervous when life brought me to a point where I needed to seek legal representation. When I first met David he was able to perceive this in me and put me at ease right away . One thing I appreciated the most was the fact that he didn't sugar coat the facts of the case. He gave me worst case scenarios and best case scenarios. He advised me to the best courses of action in all possible outcomes of various situations. Furthermore he always made me feel comfortable to contact for whatever reason I needed. He never specified a certain time. He said whenever I needed him to call. My next point might be different for each person but I felt his fees were pretty reasonable. He always seems will to work with you and I never got the feeling that that was his primary concern. It's because of these fact that I plan to retain David and i have retained him as my primary attorney and i can definately say that if you're having legal issues which are within the scope of his legal expertise you just can't go wrong.

David E. Magilligan handled my case in extremely timely manner. I was arrested for a possesion ticket. As soon as I had contacted him he had me meet with him that same week. Within the week he had gotten ahold of me to tell me what was going on and my possible steps that I could take. I went with his best suggested course. He has been nothing but a great lawyer, person and friend to me and my family. He has been to every court date I have had even though he did not to be with me to them. I can say having him to defend me was one of my greatest choices because most lawyers wouldn't take their time to come to court dates like I have. I would recommend him and have to anyone that was looking for representation.
