Jacksonville Securities Fraud Lawyer

St. Augustine/The Beaches Area Investment Fraud Attorney

Securities trading may be the ultimate high-intensity, high-risk business endeavor. Laws and regulations are ever-evolving and government efforts to punish high-profile brokers and traders have intensified radically in recent years. Today there are thousands of ongoing investigations and, increasingly, proceedings go beyond SEC arbitration into federal courtrooms.

Skilled, Results-Driven Defense of Securities Brokers and Other Professionals

White collar financial crime defense has long been a focus and strength of my law practice, and I know how to evaluate and attack complex cases. Within the realm of securities crime, I am prepared to deal with many types of alleged offenses, schemes and scams, including those involving:

  • Unauthorized trading without investor approval or permission
  • Front-running fraud involving stocks or other investment products
  • Backdating fraud associated with backdating stock options for personal or corporate gain
  • Collecting excessive commissions, either individually or throughout an entire brokerage house operation

My securities law case experience includes effective defense of a stock broker whose alleged trading activities led to a charge of enterprise corruption — similar to a violation of the U.S. Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and punishable at the state level by up to 25 years in prison.

Equipped to Handle Criminal Charges From Wire Fraud to Conspiracy

I have more than 25 years of experience in state and federal courts. My focus in every criminal and civil case I handle — and there have been thousands — is on all-out investigation and trial preparation, holding law enforcement accountable for its own transgressions, making authorities prove intent, and protecting what is most important to my client by all legal means.

I can defend you against any complex allegations of diverse business crimes and financial crimes such as:

  • Embezzlement, forgery, bribery, extortion and crimes associated with kickback schemes
  • Wire fraud, mail fraud, health care fraud and other crimes of alleged deception
  • Money laundering and RICO charges alleging a criminal conspiracy, sometimes intersecting with drug distribution and trafficking
