Mr. Serrano quickly responded to my email & phone calls. He’s very professional, attentive to detail & personable. He assisted me with a workplace issue allowing me to continue in my position. I feel without his expertise I would’ve been released due to a minor disability.

What is Human Sex Trafficking?

Human trafficking is slavery for the modern day. Victims of human trafficking are forced and coerced into performing sex work illegally. It also pertains to forced labor. It is a business based on the exploitation of people that profits the criminals who are trafficking. This is a very large “industry” in the world. Traffickers steal labor from innocent people to make a profit; worldwide, there are an estimated 20 to 40 million people involved in human trafficking generating billions in revenue.

Our Florida human sex trafficking lawyers are dedicated to helping victims of these heinous crimes. It is a misconception that all of these victims are women; victims of human trafficking can be anyone of any age from any country and belonging to any gender. The most frequently seen kind of victims of human trafficking are vulnerable people, such as runaways, homeless young people, or victims of discrimination and abuse.

Florida State law prosecutes sex trafficking with aggression. An adult human sex trafficking victim has to prove that the sex work that they were forced into was indeed done under coercion. Any victim under the age of 18 does not have to prove this. Any type of sexual exploitation of a minor is considered human trafficking.

How Do Florida Human Sex Trafficking Lawyers Help Me?

Unfortunately, of the vast numbers of sex abuse and sex trafficking victims, there are only a small number who actually seek help. The reasons for that vary. Some reasons include the following:

  • Victims may not be aware that their rights have been violated or they might be tricked by their abusers into thinking that they have no rights
  • Victims who are not citizens in the US may be afraid to speak to law enforcement because they do not want to be deported
  • Victims might be afraid that if they do reach out to law-enforcement they will be harmed or their families will be harmed

We know that it’s not easy to reach out for help but if you want to reclaim your future, this is a good first step. Our lawyers at Serrano McGuire fight for your rights. We strongly care about our clients and the justice that they get. Our job is to get you compensation for any damage that you experienced physically, economically, or mentally. We will hold the traffickers and the establishments that allowed this crime to happen accountable in court. If there are no criminal charges that we believe can be filed, we will go after a civil claim against anyone who would be liable at all for your abuse or contributed to your abuser’s ability to use you.

We have extensive skill and knowledge on personal injury matters and we also are passionate about helping human sex traffic victims find justice. We understand that you may have acquired a criminal record while being a victim of human trafficking. We know that this creates an obstacle for you in your pursuit of rebuilding your future. Having a record can make it difficult to find employment or housing, and some people turn back to their abusers for a livelihood. Please understand that the law in Florida lets people like you who have survived this atrocity to bring forward a petition to expunge any criminal record that you acquired as a victim of human trafficking. We can guide you through this entire process.

When you picture something like human trafficking, as someone who has never experienced it or seen it happen, you might imagine it taking place in a bad neighborhood in a crime-riddled country but, in truth, it can happen at a nice establishment in a big US city. Establishments that can be held accountable for human sex trafficking include:

  • Hotels/inns/motels
  • Spas/ massage parlors
  • Casinos
  • Bars/clubs
  • Truck/rest stops
  • Vacation resorts, etc.

There have been recent laws passed that employees go through training to recognize human trafficking. It is an unfortunate matter that, despite going through training like this, there are places and establishments that look away from the signs and symptoms of human trafficking because they might lose business if they shut it down when they see it. It might look bad for them if human trafficking is found to have occurred in their establishment. They are liable for your suffering, if they are guilty of this. They will be held accountable for this wrongdoing.
