If you have been poorly served, abused, or victimized by a financial advisor, stockbroker, securities dealer or “investment advisor” call now! When brokerage houses place clients in improper risk situations, or your account is improperly managed or supervised by a self-dealing financial “professional” their mistakes can savage a lifetime’s work and rob you of your retirement.

Financial Advisors work in a very regulated environment. Brokerage firms have the duty to supervise and oversee the conduct and behaviors of financial professionals who handle customer funds. The duty to supervise makes the brokerage house a named party in any claim for broker misconduct.

Often the brokerage house can exert pressure on Financial Advisors to sell inappropriate investments, sometimes overruling the best judgment of your advisor and exposing you, the client, to excessive risk and loss.

Your broker can be your ally in an action against the brokerage house and will, in arbitration and under oath, often become your best witness against the firm or group that placed you in improper or ill-advised investment vehicles.

Over 60% of all FINRA arbitrations resolve with a payment for the claimant. Arbitrations, like trials, are won or lost based on the ability of your lawyer to win at trial, and trials, like any conflict, are won by the experienced and the prepared.
