If you have suffered damages as a result of fraud, unsuitable or negligent investment advice, the sale of defective or inappropriate investments, self-dealing, theft, or other wrongful conduct, you may have a claim against your stockbroker or investment professional and their firm. If you are a senior, the broker’s actions may constitute financial elder abuse as well entitling you to extra damages and reimbursement of your attorneys’ fees and costs for bringing your action.
The San Francisco and California securities fraud and financial elder abuse attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. represent California consumers, including seniors, who have suffered from fraud and/or financial elder abuse at the hands of a stockbroker selling them inappropriate or unsuitable investments including annuities, churning their accounts or their annuities, and/or failing to disclose important information. If you or a loved one lives in California and has suffered a loss as a result of financial elder abuse by a stockbroker, insurance agent, or other financial advisor, call us today at (415)441-8669.
Your brokerage agreement may require you to arbitrate your dispute before a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitrator. FINRA reports that 1538 new cases have been filed against brokers and advisors through April of this year. The most common complaints are breach of fiduciary duty, sale of unsuitable investments, misrepresentations and negligence, failure to supervise, unauthorized trading, omissions of facts, breach of contract, and other fraud and federal and State securities law violations. Our lawyers represent clients in FINRA arbitrations and know the procedural and evidentiary requirements of those proceedings. Our attorneys effectively pursue all remedies available to all our clients, including senior victims of financial elder abuse, from all kinds of wrongdoers, in arbitrations and judicial actions.
