Los Angeles Broker-Customer Dispute Attorney

Any real or perceived misconduct on the part of a broker can cause an aggressive, emotional reaction. If you are facing a broker-customer dispute, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced attorney.

For more than 30 years, I have provided aggressive, dedicated defense to clients involved in a broad range of complex disputes. At my firm, The Law Office of Jonathan Schwartz, I am prepared to thoroughly investigate your dispute and develop the effective defense you need.

Since 1972, I have tried or arbitrated civil securities cases as an independent attorney. In my years in the practice of securities law, I have served as a trial attorney for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), an attorney advisor to Commissioner Philip Elman of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and as a compliance attorney for the Office of Foreign Direct Investment (OFDI) — an Office within the U.S. Department of Commerce created by Executive Order of the President of the United States

The client-broker relationship can spawn numerous disputes, including:

  • Misrepresentations and omissions
  • Unauthorized trading
  • Unsuitable investments

When you need a California lawyer who is knowledgeable in the area of broker-customer disputes, you should schedule a free telephone consultation. After listening to the facts of your case, I can usually tell whether you have a good claim or defense. I can provide the legal advice and representation you need.

Under An Obligation To Arbitrate

It is not uncommon for brokerage firms to require clients to sign an arbitration agreement. Under this document, the client agrees to resolve disputes through arbitration rather than pursuing the matter in court. If no arbitration agreement exists, the client can choose to go through arbitration or the court system. In any event, it is wise for the broker and brokerage firm to seek experienced counsel as early as possible. The sooner I become involved, the sooner I can provide legal advice and guidance directed at getting you through the matter in the most efficient manner possible.
