    Daily Headlines: “Wall Street Fraud!”Millions of Investors Have Lost Their Life Savings and Retirement Assets!

    Yet, property invested, any losses would have been small. Many investors’ lives were destroyed because brokerage firms lied to their clients (and brokers) or other misconduct or negligence by the firm or broker. It is wrong when life savings are lost through unsuitable high risk stocks, options, mutual funds – or even annuities or bonds! Margin borrowing often made the losses even greater. Some brokers and firms now blame investors for their own losses. Don’t be fooled by these tactics!

    There are regulations and laws written to protect investors. Securities regulators “police” the securities industry and issue fines and suspensions. To recover their losses investors must file claims for recovery. Statistics demonstrate that they are far more likely to recover if they are represented by experienced securities fraud lawyers.
