Consumers, like yourself, often trust brokers, advisors and investment firms to maintain and ideally grow their savings. Consumers expect to receive truthful, educated, professional, and accurate information and advice for their individual circumstances. However, sometimes corrupt stockbrokers and investment advisors take advantage of consumer trust and lose the consumer’s life savings.
Substantial losses in customer accounts are not always market driven. Often brokers and advisors blame the market conditions when customers question the cause of substantial losses in their accounts. However, substantial losses in a customer’s account may, in fact, have been directly related to broker mismanagement such as concentration of investments in the same or similar securities or market sectors, conflicts of interest, or the result of unsuitable recommendations by the broker or advisor. Whenever brokers or advisors unduly influence or control investment decisions that are ultimately detrimental to a customer’s account value, the customer has a legal right of action to pursue a claim for recovery of the losses.
Experienced investment fraud or securities fraud lawyers trained in the handling of FINRA arbitrations and related courtroom litigation provide the best professional resources to achieve the greatest opportunity for recovery of customer losses.
Steve Miller, over 30 years of experience, and Fortman Law are such. Together they have a keen understanding of complexities of FINRA arbitration, mediation, regulation and securities litigation.
