Investment and Securities Fraud and Broker Misconduct
You have sacrificed a lot to earn your retirement income, and when you trust a securities firm to maintain (and hopefully grow) it, you expect to receive truthful, professional, and accurate information about your investments and sound investment advice that suits your particular needs. At Levin, Papantonio, our investment fraud lawyers are dedicated to helping victims of securities fraud, broker misconduct, and unsuitable recommendations recover their losses and get the justice they deserve.
Sometimes unscrupulous stockbrokers and investment advisors take advantage of your trust and you can find yourself facing the loss of your life savings because of the dishonesty of others. Whether your loss is due to unsuitable investment advice, conflicts of interest, or investment fraud, what you know is that your retirement income is gone.
Investment fraud and broker misconduct can take many forms. Our experienced securities fraud attorneys, CPAs and MBAs can analyze your portfolio for free to determine if misconduct caused you to suffer substantial losses.
