What Should You Do If You Suspect You’ve Been The Victim of Broker Fraud or Negligence? 

The Florida Office of Financial Regulation is the state’s regulator regarding the securities industry. The Florida Securities Investor Protection Act (FSIPA) Act, also known as Florida’s Blue Sky Laws, are the state’s securities laws.

In Florida, there are two ways in which a person can be found to have violated state securities statutes and may be subject to civil liability: 1) by selling unregistered securities or 2) committing securities fraud. However, as an investor, it can be hard to know whether you have become the victim of either.

While the state’s securities regulator frequently will go after those suspected or accused of broker fraud, your best bet is to contact our savvy securities lawyers in Florida. We can determine whether you have grounds for a broker fraud lawsuit, and we will explore your legal options with you. At SSEK Law Firm, we have represented thousands of investors and recovered many millions of dollars on their behalf over losses caused by:

If you are entitled to damages, and should we decide to work together, our knowledgeable securities lawyers and FINRA attorneys in Florida will prepare and submit your complaint to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority for arbitration. When the time comes for your case to go to a hearing, we will be there with you, fighting for your financial recovery while protecting your legal rights.

This is not the type of case you want to pursue independently or without the right investment fraud attorneys in Florida having your back.

Even if the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was to get involved and file its own lawsuit against the broker who defrauded you, your best chance of obtaining the maximum financial recovery possible is to have experienced legal representation advocating for you.

Client Reviews
"I am going to miss conversations with you, Sam Edwards. You’ve been a wonderful lawyer and a friend. I loved learning legal jargon from you. But, even more, it is your self-respect and commitment to your position that I admire and your persistent patience-your equanimity. With great appreciation, thank you!" M.B.
"My experience with Ryan Cook has been very positive. Through every step of the litigation he explained what to expect to happen. When I spoke with him later he reviewed the process. He was very patient, and I never felt rushed. I have already told friends how wonderful he is." L.R.
"I want you to know that I very much appreciate your expertise, hard work, and guidance that led to a satisfactory resolution with Raymond James. From our first meeting, I felt "heard" and that my situation and story were respected. Every subsequent interaction I had with any of you - in person, via email, or by phone - only corroborated that feeling. What great work you do on behalf of people like me who have been wronged, yet don't know how to navigate the appeals/mediation/arbitration process as you do. I will be forever grateful." M.L.
"Good positive experience. Guided us through a difficult process and was pleased with the outcome. Everyone I dealt with was exceptional." A.G.
"Good intelligent attorneys who never miss a beat. I set my expectations high, and they delivered above and beyond. Do not miss the opportunity to let SSEK represent you. Top-notch, efficient and effective firm." S.M.
