Legal Representation

Legal Representation FAQ

Can a non-lawyer represent me in arbitration?

Arbitration is considered a private process, not a legal proceeding. Because of this designation, many people assume they do not have to hire someone with a law degree admitted to the bar. However, brokerage firms and financial institutions are almost always represented by an experienced attorney during FINRA arbitration.

How long do I have to file a claim?

There are a variety of legal and procedural factors to consider that may limit or extend the timeframe to pursue a claim. With arbitration, FINRA allows cases that date back up to six years.
