A message from Tracy Stoneman -
You've worked hard for your investment dollars and chose what appeared to be a dependable broker, investment advisor, brokerage firm, or perhaps, an online brokerage firm and you dove in with both feet, placing your trust and money hoping that they will serve your best interest! However, oftentimes what looks good at first glance may result in disastrous consequences. It begins with a loss of trust, as your portfolio didn't produce what was promised or worse took a horrible nosedive. Then you find your trusted financial adviser has engaged in wrongdoing - negligence, fraud, unsuitability, unauthorized trading - or, heaven forbid, failed to follow your instructions. Fortunately for all investors, the securities industry is well-regulated,
and you have a remedy if these acts of wrongdoing occurred. You should not waste time deciding what action to take. If you have reason to believe that you have been the victim of fraud or misrepresentation, you have the opportunity to seek justice. But, you must choose an aggressive and experienced securities arbitration lawyer - it is vital to recovering your investment losses.

WHY HIRE TRACY STONEMAN VERSUS OTHER SECURITIES LAWYERS
In this competitive world of securities litigation, ultimately the key question for any wronged investor or potential claimant is “Why hire Tracy Stoneman versus some other securities lawyer?” When I started doing securities litigation exclusively almost 30 years ago, I had very little competition. That is the reason I own two of the key securities litigation website domains www.brokeragefraud.com and www.investorfraud.com. 30 years later the Internet is filled with fancy websites by law firms claiming to specialize in securities litigation. I know most of my competitors and, for the vast majority, what I offer to my clients is a far superior opportunity to recover your losses, your costs, your attorney’s fees, interest and lost opportunity damages (what you would or should have made in the brokerage account if not for the wrongdoing).

- Who actually does the work on your case?
Many securities law firms have large staffs to deal with all the volume. Much of your case will be handled by younger, much less experienced lawyers and legal staff. I perform 100% of the work on your case. That’s exactly what you deserve - a lawyer who has 30 years of exclusive, hands-on securities litigation experience.
- Does the lawyer or law firm do exclusively securities litigation?
I do exclusively securities litigation, nothing else. Many securities firms that appear to be doing only securities litigation also do all kinds of other personal injury litigation. Scrutinize their entire website to look for this deviation.
- What is the chance the lawyer is really willing to try your case versus forcing you into a settlement?
It is a sad fact that far too many of my competitors take on cases that they never intend to take through arbitration/trial. They will take your case on contingency, have an associate do most of work, perform little work, and then settle your case for cents on the dollar. I will not take any case unless I’m willing to go all the way through the entire litigation process.
NAVIGATING THE FOG OF INVESTING
This 1 minute, 2010 video is not a paid advertisement. Instead, it is
an interview of Ms. Stoneman, that is part of a major hard-hitting
documentary starring some of the biggest names in the securities industry.
The Movie, Navigating the Fog of Investing
In what may be the most improbable 90 minutes ever conceived,
"Navigating the Fog of Investing," ventures deep into the underbelly
of the investment world and shocks us into reality. In his feature film debut,
Joshua Helman, M.D. takes us deep behind enemy lines to expose the conspiring
minds of the brokerage community and their tawdry ways. Armed with a hidden
camera Helman reveals stockbrokers and investment gurus for what they really
are — financial cheerleaders -- without the skirts. And expose them he does.
The movie is to the personal finance industry what Michael Moore's Sicko film
is to the healthcare industry.
