Areas of Investor Representation


Securities arbitration presents considerable advantages to customers because the process is quicker, cheaper and less burdensome than court litigation.


While most disputes relating to investments are subject to arbitration, there are some situations where the proceeding must be brought in court.


Mediation is an informal, voluntary and non-binding process where each party has an opportunity to tell their story to an impartial and neutral mediator.

Warnings Signs of Broker Misconduct

Many people don’t even realize when they’ve been defrauded by a stockbroker they trusted. Often, investors blame themselves because of the inherent market risks and never consider consulting with a stock fraud lawyer. Most don’t understand their full rights to receiving qualified advice that’s in their best interests or cannot identify if they have been a victim of broker misconduct. Visit the Broker Misconduct page for examples of investor traps and warning signs to look for.
