We represent investors in a variety of disputes related to losses sustained in their brokerage accounts as a result of wrongdoing and fraud by their stockbrokers, brokerage firms and investment advisers. These cases range from such issues as misrepresentation and suitability to unauthorized trading and include investments involving equities, annuities, bonds, mutual funds, REITs and Tenant in Common investments.

Aided by their decades of practice and their knowledge of the major brokerage firms, our attorneys have obtained millions of dollars in arbitration awards and settlements for their clients from some of the largest national brokerage houses.

In the past 3 years, Hunsucker Goodstein has recovered over $4 million in awards or settlements on behalf of investors who were solicited to invest irreplaceable assets into Tenant In Common (TIC) interests. Unbeknownst to the investors, the TIC investments were extremely risky and placed their entire principal investment at risk. Simply stated, TIC investments are highly aggressive and inappropriate for any investor who can ill afford to place his or her entire investment at risk. In many instances, elderly investors were solicited to purchase high risk, highly leveraged TIC investments which resulted in devastating loss when the underlying property went into foreclosure.
