Securities fraud cases make the national news regularly when self-styled investment gurus bilk investors of their wealth on the basis of false information or through unethical financial practices.

We Know How To Evaluate And Litigate Stockbroker Fraud Cases
Our attorneys know how to evaluate potential securities fraud cases involving one or more of the following types of stockbroker fraud:
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Conflict of interest, by which brokers rate stocks higher than is warranted for the sake of personal gain
- Unsuitability, whereby brokers take risks known to be contrary to clients' desires
- Unauthorized trades, whereby brokers make investments without written consent of the account holder
- Churning, whereby the broker repeatedly and excessively trades stocks in an apparent or obvious attempt to earn commissions
Securities fraud equals investment wrongdoing, and it is punishable by state and federal laws. If you have been victimized and have lost substantial financial assets as a result of a stockbroker or brokerage house, discuss the facts with a lawyer. Contact James F.
