How To Choose a Securities Fraud Attorney
As an investor, you trust your stockbroker to handle your investments responsibly and with integrity. Sadly, this trust is sometimes broken, with some investment professionals deliberately mismanaging funds for their personal benefit and to the detriment of the investors they serve.
If you’ve experienced losses from stockbroker fraud, it’s important to promptly consider your legal options. Pursuing legal action against brokers, brokerages, and advisors can be challenging, making it vital to work with a lawyer who is knowledgeable about securities fraud cases and able to protect your rights and interests.
At Colling Gilbert Wright, our seasoned securities fraud attorneys have substantial knowledge in an array of investment fraud claims. We are dedicated to helping our clients recover losses caused by negligent brokers and financial advisors.
Qualities To Look For in a Securities Fraud Attorney
Financial advisors, brokerages, and investment professionals are obliged to act in the best interests of their clients. When they engage in fraudulent activities that breach this duty, they can be held responsible for their actions.
If you have suffered a financial loss due to the actions of a fraudulent stockbroker, it’s important to seek legal help immediately. However, with so many lawyers advertising on TV and online, it can be difficult to determine which one is best equipped to represent you and recover your losses. When searching for a reliable securities fraud attorney, look for these key attributes:
Clear communication with your attorney is essential throughout your legal journey. You need a lawyer who is accessible for your inquiries and doesn’t treat them as a burden.
At Colling Gilbert Wright, we prioritize keeping our clients informed about their cases. We are readily available to answer any relevant questions that may arise. We understand the frustration of being unaware of the status of your case and strive to address your concerns and keep you informed at all times.
2. Positive Client Reviews
After being a victim of securities fraud, it can be challenging to know who to trust. This mistrust can make finding a trustworthy attorney even more daunting. One way to gauge what to expect from a law firm is to check their past clients’ experiences.
If you’re considering a specific securities fraud attorney, ask them about their previous clients and where you can find reviews. You may be able to read reviews online or the lawyer may be able to put you in touch with a past client so you can ask about their experience working with the lawyer and if they would recommend them.
3. A Track Record of Success
If you’ve suffered financial loss due to circumstances beyond your control, you need a lawyer who can fight to recover the full compensation you deserve. Before selecting a law firm, it’s crucial to evaluate its track record of success.
At Colling Gilbert Wright, we have a proud history of successful investment fraud cases. Our securities fraud attorneys have received an “AV Rating” from Martindale-Hubbell, a distinction earned by only 20% of attorneys nationally, and we take great pride in this recognition.
4. Extensive Experience With a Range of Investment Fraud Cases
Just as you wouldn’t see a foot doctor for shoulder surgery, you shouldn’t seek legal representation for your investment fraud case from an attorney who specializes in divorce cases. Fraud claims are complex and require the expertise, skills, and resources of an experienced securities fraud attorney who can identify and prove fraud.
