Maybe you think you can’t hope to win a fight with your brokerage firm. Wrong. You can fight your brokerage firm and, more important, you can win. In fact, there’s a specific arbitration system designed to resolve claims just like yours. And believe it or not, our clients recover some or all of their losses in almost every case we handle.
But you can’t fight and win without having the right lawyers on your side.
The Stockmarketloss team has more than 50 years of combined experience handling investment claims. Since the turn of the century, we’ve devoted our securities practice exclusively to the representation of investors injured by negligence and fraud. Before that, we spent decades defending large national and regional brokerage firms against the same types of claims. We know these cases from the inside out. We were doing them long before many of our competitors were even in law school. And we’ve been recognized for doing them exceptionally well.
One of our partners, Hugh Berkson,is a director of the Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association, an international legal association for practitioners who represent investors in disputes with the securities industry. Hugh also is served as President of PIABA from October 2015-October 2016. He is a frequent lecturer on investment litigation issues, both through PIABA and in other national forums.
Our other partner, Jay Salamon, has authored articles for and served as one of the original editors of the PIABA Bar Journal, a quarterly compilation of scholarly articles authored by practitioners, experts, mediators, arbitrators and law school professors. The esteemed journal focuses on the practice of securities arbitration and issues related to the representation of injured investors.
Finally, both Stockmarketloss lawyers and the firm of McCarthy, Lebit, Crystal & Liffman are AV-rated by Martindale Hubble, whose ratings are determined by random polling of lawyers in legal communities throughout the country. As the authoritative ratings guide to the American legal profession, Martindale Hubble has ranked lawyers for over a century, and currently assigns ratings to more than 150,000 lawyers each year. A designation of AV is the highest possible rating, denoting lawyers and firms who are “very high to preeminent in professional reputation and very high in ethical standards.”
Bottom line? We’re really good at what we do. We know how to fight your brokerage firm, and we know how to win.
