Legal Malpractice in Investor Fraud Cases
rbitration under the auspices of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is a preferred method for resolving cases of investor fraud. There are, however, a number of possible remedies and choices available to resolve cases for victims of investor fraud. This is a specialized area of the law, however, and many challenges face an investor seeking relief. Some attorneys may portray themselves as experienced advocates who understand the FINRA arbitration system, as well as the other possible forums to pursue these cases. If that lawyer, in fact, did not have the skills required to practice successfully in this area, or committed a fatal error that dooms a case, you need to pursue your rights.
Stewart & DeChant is a firm that represents investors who have suffered losses due to legal malpractice. We are knowledgeable, experienced and have access to the resources needed to successfully pursue these cases.
If you believe your attorney has committed legal malpractice in an investor fraud case, contact our firm.
You need to pursue this immediately because:
You have only one year to file suit from the latest of the following:
- The date of negligence
- The date you were last represented
- The date a reasonable person should have investigated whether malpractice occurred
Generally speaking, our firm does not handle legal malpractice cases where the value of the loss is less than $100,000. That is true because the cost alone to pursue these cases generally prohibits them from being pursued when the loss is less.
The Complexity of Legal Ethics Law
egal malpractice cases are especially challenging by their nature. Often, you must prove a “case within a case” by showing your original claim had merit and that your attorney failed to follow the standard of care and that failure is what caused your damage.
