Securities Arbitration
Did your stock broker's advice lead to big financial losses for you? In order to make yourself whole again, you may need to go to securities arbitration - a process that is not widely understood.

In arbitration, hired judges - not a jury of your peers - decide how to resolve your dispute with a broker or investment house. These judges are chosen from lists maintained by the organizations that operate the arbitrations. Depending on the forum, the judges may be investment professionals, or people who work in various other professions. Another difference is that the arbitration decision is usually final and binding. Procedures tend to be less formal than those in regular court and it is easier to enter some types of evidence.

These specialized procedures require highly skilled attorneys who have experience in arbitration dispute resolution. The Wright Law Office is knowledgeable about National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) arbitration and dispute resolution, and New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) arbitrations. Usually you only have one shot in arbitration, so having a good attorney is essential. The Wright Law Office currently handles cases involving variable annuity investment scams, inappropriate and unsuitable investments, stock churning, excessive trades, margin-trading violations and other investment frauds.

Many people don't realize that when they open an account with a stockbroker they are agreeing to resolve all disputes through arbitration. So if your broker lost your money; if a securities firm gave you bad advice about stocks, CDs, bonds, money market or mutual funds; and if you are facing securities arbitration, contact us to see if we can help. The Wright Law Office currently represents people who were never properly advised of the high risks their investments entailed; who were given incorrect or unethical information by their brokers; or who were otherwise misled or lied to. Our legal actions target stock brokers, investment and securities houses, insurance salespeople who are licensed to sell securities including variable annuities, financial advisors and financial planners who misrepresented investments to clients.
