When Unsuitable Trading Leads To Investor Losses
Our Unsuitable Trading Attorneys Are Speaking To Former Customers of Ex-Merrill Lynch Broker Robert Gerstein

Robert Gerstein, who worked at the broker-dealer for more than four decades, consented to the six-month suspension, $5,000 fine, and $129,496 plus interest in restitution that the self-regulatory organization (SRO) imposed. However, he did so without denying or admitting to its findings.
