Investment Fraud Attorneys

Trusted Law Firm for Investment Loss and
Securities Fraud Claims

Pursuing investor claims and class actions is what we do; all day, every day.
Many of our clients are referred to our law firm by their family lawyer,
business lawyer, accountant or a new financial advisor. We help individuals
who believe they, or someone they care about, have suffered investment or other
losses caused by investment misconduct. If you want to sue your stockbroker, talk to us about securities arbitration.

Investor Protection Announcement!

Stockbrokers and financial advisors have a duty to recommend investments that are appropriate based on your specific circumstances. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. Some brokers and advisors participate in practices such as unauthorized trading, churning, overconcentration, unsuitable investment recommendations, Ponzi schemes, excessive 401(k) fees, outright theft and more. If you suffered substantial financial loss because of fraud or related investment misconduct, our firm is here to help. We also recognize that this may be a difficult financial time for you, which is why all of our cases are handled on a contingency fee, meaning we only earn a fee if money is recovered.

When you trust a stockbroker or financial advisor with your investments, you are entrusting that advisor with your future financial security. When that trust is broken and the broker commits fraud, mismanages your investments or engages in unethical or illegal conduct, consult an experienced investment fraud attorney.

5 Warning signs of Investment Fraud

That "golden opportunity" may be an investment scam if:

  • 1

    It promises "guaranteed" returns

  • 2

    It promises high returns for little or no risk

  • 3

    It's unregistered, or it's being pitched by an unregistered adviser or salesperson.

  • 4

    It lacks documentation, such as prospectuses, offering statements, or financial reports.

  • 5

    It's difficult to understand; and/or the pitch comes with high-pressure sales tactics that push you to purchase immediately.
