Securities Fraud Lawyer

Bixby Law PLLC represents investors and customers to help recover losses and damages caused by the misconduct, negligence, and wrongdoing of broker-dealers and investment advisors. We provide accountability for fraudsters and brokerage firms that fail to live up to the high standards required by the law and industry standards. Our team has experience handling a wide range of securities and investment fraud claims, and our experience includes recovering millions of dollars on behalf of our clients all across the United States. Bixby Law PLLC prides itself in the ability to aggressively advocate for our client’s interests while providing personal touch to address the unique needs of each client’s situation. We aim to provide our clients with representation and guidance that will allow them to obtain a fair recovery for their losses. We recognize that our clients have often worked hard for their retirement savings, and we provide you individualized service rather than a cookie-cutter or one-size-fits-all approach.

When a broker or financial advisor fails their client, either through intentional misconduct or negligence, clients have various avenues for compensation under the law. Those harmed by a broker of financial advisor’s recommendations or failures may have a right to assert legal claims to recover their losses, including reimbursement of attorney’s fees, costs, and other damages. Claims often involve failed or faulty products, such as “Alternative” investments like Non-Traded REITs, Limited Partnerships, and Private Placements. Often, brokers and financial advisors are misinformed by their own employers about the nature and risks of these products. Typical claims involve unsuitability (violation of FINRA’s Suitability Rule 2111), over concentration of assets, breach of fiduciary duty and failing to act in the customer’s best interests or comply with Regulation Best Interest (“Reg BI”), or recommendations of high risk or speculative investments or investment strategies, such as options trading strategies, or even charging excessive fees or commissions.

Bixby Law PLLC represents clients on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay us any fees or costs unless you first make a recovery. Initial consultations are confidential, free, and no obligation. Contact us today to learn how we can utilize our experience to fight for your rights and seek justice on your behalf.
