Have you suffered investment losses because of negligent or fraudulent advice from a stockbroker or financial adviser? With the help of a skilled securities litigation attorney, you may be able to recover compensation for your losses. At Gilligan, Gooding, Franjola & Batsel, P.A., in Ocala, Florida, we will review your situation to determine if an investment professional’s misrepresentation or negligence resulted in your loss. If so, we can file a claim to hold the investment professional liable for his or her misrepresentation or negligence.
It is important to understand that there are always risks involved in investing in stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other investment vehicles. However, stockbrokers and financial advisers should carefully gauge your risk and recommend investments suitable to your situation. For example, a financial adviser should not recommend a high-risk investment for a couple who is nearing retirement age. That would be referred to as an unsuitable investment.
When handling securities disputes, our goal is to help you recover the money that you lost and to do so as quickly as possible. These disputes are resolved by arbitration or traditional litigation. In either case, our lawyers will advocate for you to make your case a success.
