ALERT! Curtis Ile of Sigma Financial Suspended, Mount Carmel Illinois

INVESTOR ALERT:  Jon Schmidhammer, Financial Advisor Arrested.


Our law firm is currently investigating allegations surrounding the arrest of financial advisor Jon Schmidhammer of Dublin, Ohio.  Israels & Neuman’s investigation commenced in response to an article in the Columbus Dispatch that reports that Jon Schmidhammer was arrested on August 1, 2016, after he confessed to stealing more than $500,000.00 from an elderly client.  Schmidhammer was charged with theft, which carries a possible sentence of 11 years in prison.


Jon Schmidhammer’s FINRA broker-check report lists him as being a registered representative of Stifel, Nicoluas & Company, where he has been registered since May of 2009 (although, it is highly likely that Schmidhammer has already been terminated by Stifel in response to the arrest).  Prior to Stifel, Schmidhammer was affiliated with Merrill Lynch, Advest, Inc., UBS financial, Morgan Stanley, and Lehman Brothers.


Our law firm has found that when a broker begins a pattern and practice of borrowing and stealing from its clients, it is rarely an isolated incident. Israels & Neuman is interested in speaking with other investors who have lost money with or had money stolen by Jon Schmidhammer.  If you are a victim of Mr. Schmidhammer, you may be able to recover some or all of your damages through the FINRA arbitration process.
