Many people told me I had no chance of getting money, because I did not have a good claim. When I was introduced to Peter, things changed. I found that he was more interested in helping me. He put a lot of effort into my case and was able to collect a fair amount of money! Peter is a different kind of attorney. I am very pleased with Peter and would highly recommend him.

Are You the Victim of Investment Fraud?
George and Sherri Campbell are in their early 70’s, in good health and are retired. Sitting in the kitchen one sunny morning, Sherri says, “We have a meeting with Tom, our financial advisor next week. I wonder, how do we know if our investments are safe?” Even though Tom came highly recommended, they decided to turn to the Internet to search for the warning signs of stockbroker misconduct. They discovered a great deal of helpful information. Investment fraud or stockbroker fraud happens when your advisor gives you inaccurate, incomplete or biased information that induces you to make a purchase and enriches the broker. Stockbrokers and advisors owe their customers the duty to operate in good faith. This means that brokers and their agencies, must place your financial interests ahead of their own or that of their firm.
Warning signs of stockbroker misconduct include:
- Unsuitability: Recommending the purchase or sale of a security that is not right for you, the investor, considering your age, health, financial situation, investment objective and experience.
- Unauthorized Trades: Buying or selling securities or switching mutual funds without the investor’s specific authorization,
- Material Fact not Disclosed: Failing to explain to the investor the risks of investing in a particular security, the fees involved, or financial information about the proposed investment are material or important facts for investors to have when investing.
- Removing Funds: Removing funds or securities from an investor’s account without permission.
- Excessive Charges: Charging excessive markups, markdowns or commissions on the purchase or sale of a stock, mutual fund or other security.
- Failure to use due diligence: Failing to assure that an investor’s order to buy or sell is accomplished at the best possible price in light of the current market conditions.
Other signs of a dishonest stockbroker:
- A stockbroker who breaches the terms of the oral, written or implied contract agreed upon by the investor and the advisor,
- Careless or negligent actions or inactions, or
- High-pressure sales.
If, after reviewing your statement from your advisor, you think you are a victim of investment fraud or negligence, you can settle the dispute using mediation, arbitration, or litigation. Mediation is an informal, voluntary approach where a mediator helps the parties negotiate to find an acceptable resolution. The decision the parties reach usually will include some compensation for their loss and address the advisor misconduct.
