HAVE YOU LOST MONEY BECAUSE OF INVESTMENT FRAUD, SECURITIES FRAUD, OR UNSUITABLE INVESTMENT RECOMMENDATIONS MADE BY YOUR SEATTLE OR WASHINGTON FINANCIAL ADVISOR OR STOCKBROKER?
Our attorneys may be able to help you recover your investment losses due to securities fraud or other misconduct by your financial advisor or stockbroker. The attorneys at Israels & Neuman regularly handle securities arbitration and investment fraud cases in the Seattle area and throughout the State of Washington.
When you open up a brokerage account with any securities brokerage firm (whether it is an IRA, Roth IRA, joint account, or individual brokerage account), the customer signs an account agreement. Nearly 100% of all securities brokerage account agreements have an arbitration clause, which states that if you want to sue your financial advisor, stockbroker, or brokerage firm, you are required to do so in FINRA arbitration. FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, is an organization made of securities brokerage firms, and FINRA also runs the securities arbitration process for its brokerage firm members.
FINRA does not have any offices in Seattle. However, when investors from Seattle or the State of Washington sue a brokerage firm in arbitration, FINRA will select arbitrators from Seattle and the Pacific Northwest to preside over the case. FINRA will also rent office space, usually in downtown Seattle, to hold the arbitration hearing. Our attorneys have represented investors before FINRA arbitration panels in Seattle and throughout the country.
At Israels & Neuman, our attorneys have represented over 1,000 investors who were the victims of investment fraud and needed securities fraud attorneys. Our attorneys have offices in the Seattle area (Bellevue), as well as in Vancouver, Washington (to better serve our clients in Portland, Oregon). We also have offices in Denver, Chicago, and Ann Arbor, Michigan. While we currently only have offices in these locations, we regularly represent clients throughout the country, especially throughout the Pacific Northwest, Oregon, Idaho, California, Montana, and surrounding states.
We have represented numerous clients throughout the Seattle area and Washington, including some of the following:
-Some of our clients were featured in a Seattle Times article regarding a fraudulent scheme run by investment advisor Chris Yoo, and attorney David Neuman was quoted extensively for the article;
-We have represented investors in arbitration from the Seattle area, the Portland, Oregon area, and throughout the country who lost money in the Seattle butcher shop chain, Bill the Butcher;
-We have also represented investors who have filed FINRA arbitration claims against stockbrokers and advisors who previously were affiliated with Pacific West Securities, a former Renton, Washington-based securities brokerage firm that is now out of business;
-Our investment fraud attorneys have previously represented investors who lost money because of stockbroker misconduct from advisors who worked with National Securities Corp., a brokerage firm with its main headquarters in downtown Seattle, Washington;
-Our attorneys represented a couple from Vancouver, Washington (with an arbitration hearing venue of Portland, Oregon) against a financial advisor and brokerage firm for the recommendation of Fannie Mae preferred stock.
The securities arbitration attorneys at Israels & Neuman represent investors in FINRA arbitration proceedings in all 50 states, and we also represent investors locally, including in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Bothell, Kenmore, Renton, Redmond, Sammamish, Issaquah, Mercer Island, Medina, Clyde Hill, Yarrow Point, Hunts Point, Beaux Arts Village, Woodinville, Vancouver, Spokane, Yakima, and many other communities. Our attorneys have represented over one thousand investors against many brokerage firms in the past.
All of our investment loss cases are taken on a contingent basis, meaning that we do not get paid unless we recover money for you. Our attorneys look forward to continuing to represent investors in Seattle, the State of Washington, and throughout the Pacific Northwest.
