Alabama Securities Attorneys
Fitapelli Kurta’s experienced securities attorneys are qualified to practice in Alabama through two means: through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) or by association with local counsel in Alabama.
The majority of securities complaints are not adjudicated in court; rather, they are heard in binding arbitration before a FINRA panel. This is where we excel.What Protections do Alabama Investors Have?
Investors are protected in the State of Alabama by a range of securities laws and regulations: the Alabama Securities Act and the Rules of the Alabama Securities Commission are a few examples. Functioning in concert with FINRA rules and federal laws, these regulations empower investors to seek financial damages against stockbrokers and financial advisers.
The Alabama Securities Commission oversees and regulates stockbrokers and financial advisers who operate within the state. But it does not have the power to represent investors in private arbitrations and lawsuits. Only securities attorneys have that power.
Additionally, the Alabama Securities Commission is unable to enforce the return of lost money to an investor – only a court can do that. For these reasons, it is important for investors to seek out and retain a knowledgeable securities attorney to pursue the recovery of lost funds.What Makes Us the Right Attorneys?
We are different. We bring the benefit of inside knowledge. Our securities attorneys have years of experience defending brokerage firms against investor claims; now, every securities attorney in our firm works exclusively on behalf of investors. Our attorneys tap into their years working for the “enemy” to advocate and fight for investors.
We get results. Though we cannot guarantee success, our securities attorneys have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients. Our record speaks for itself. Both of our founding partners are SuperLawyers®, and our firm has received various industry awards – the Avvo Client’s Choice Award for Arbitration, for instance, as well as a “Preeminent” rating by Martindale-Hubbell. Our attorneys are regularly quoted in the media on investment related issues, appearing in trade publications and national media, including the Wall Street Journal and ABC News.
We get only paid if you do. Our attorneys work on contingency: we only collect a fee from clients if we are able to recover money on their behalf. We offer free telephone consultations in Alabama and nationwide.What Should I do?
