Tracy Stoneman - Stoneman Law
Has Been Quoted In:


For almost 30 years, I have primarily represented investors in securities arbitrations against brokerage firms. My foray into investor representation began in the early 90’s when I represented a group of Prudential Securities investors in Dallas, Texas who lost boatloads of money investing in limited partnerships at the behest of Prudential Securities stockbroker Fred Storaska.  The cases landed on the front page of the Wall Street Journal business section in March 1994, because my clients were pressuring Prudential to offer them higher settlements. It worked, and I obtained excellent settlements for my clients.

I have represented hundreds of investors over the years against most every brokerage firm there is and am proud of my accomplishments in helping investors recover what they are due. I have secured some of the largest securities arbitration recoveries from Prudential Securities, PaineWebber, and Raymond James. I have been quoted in most all of the major financial publications and am active in writing and publishing articles.

"However, this is no piece of fiction, because the authors have seen some of the uglier aspects of the retail brokerage industry. Thankfully, the book isn't simply a list of bad apples. Most of the commentary is thematic, well summarized, and responsible. Some of the most valuable commentary addresses structural problems with the industry, such as commissions leading to churning, and sales targets making a mess of suitability. There are sections of the book devoted to nearly every aspect of retail brokerage, from Annuities to Wrap Accounts and from Arbitration to Margin Sellouts. In spite of BF's "hard-edged" tone, it really is a cookbook for a clean retail brokerage. In the Chapter, "Selecting and Evaluating a Stockbroker," Schulz and Stoneman even offer a list of traits for a good broker, and another list of what clients should expect of a good broker. If nothing else, you should copy these pages and forward them to the broker"
Client Reviews
If you suspect securities or brokerage fraud against your hard-earned investments and need an advocate, call Tracy Pride Stoneman - NOW! I was a victim of churning, improper sale of unsuitable private placements, compliance violations, and more. I blamed myself at first and didn't think I had a case, but I was referred to Tracy after another lawyer balked, thinking all was lost. She took the emotion out of it, got down to the facts, made the case, and in hands-on fashion worked hard for the best result possible. She's an excellent communicator and the kind of experienced securities arbitration lawyer you need in your corner. Ms. Stoneman achieved a settlement for me that far exceeded expectations. She has my highest recommendation. Jeffrey B.
Tracy was a wonderful lawyer in my and my husband's huge case against Prudential Securities. She was relentless in going after the stockbroker and firm, determined to obtain all of the documents that helped our case and hurt theirs (that's why the firm didn't want to produce them!). No matter what curve ball the brokerage firm threw, Tracy came up with an angle to overcome it. My husband always commented how smart Tracy was in handling our case. Throughout it all, Tracy was extremely cheerful and easy to work with - unlike most lawyers I know! Carolyn W.
I think that you did a great job for the Tylers, and I believe you are one of the most organized and effective attorneys I have worked with. John B.
