If you believe that you have suffered investment losses due to stockbroker fraud or misconduct, it is recommended that you speak with a stockbroker misconduct lawyer as soon as possible. However, most investors who find themselves in this situation aren’t sure where to start or how to find a reputable and experienced lawyer who deals with stockbroker fraud.
What Should I Be Looking for in a Stockbroker Fraud Lawyer?
Because stockbroker fraud cases are handled very differently than other types of cases, you will need a stockbroker misconduct lawyer who understands financial fraud and FINRA proceedings. When you start the search for an attorney who is right for you, start by looking for someone who:
- Has experience successfully representing investors in FINRA proceedings.
- Focuses his or her practice mainly on investment fraud and stockbroker misconduct cases.
- Is highly rated with rating services like Martindale-Hubbell, The Best Lawyers in America, and Super Lawyers.
Once you have narrowed your search, schedule a consultation with the attorney to talk about your situation and what steps you should take. Make sure you feel comfortable with your investment fraud attorney and that he or she can explain the complex legal road ahead of you in terms you can understand.
