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
