JENICE L. MALECKI, ESQ. is a well-known New York securities attorney and has been a FINRA arbitrator and Chairperson. In 2012, 2013 and 2014, Ms. Malecki was named as a Top Attorney by Super Lawyers and the National Law Journal, featured in the New York Times Magazine, New York Magazine, National Law Journal and other related publications, as well as being named as one of “New York’s Women Leaders in the Law 2014”. She appears regularly on TV, in the news and on the radio. Ms. Malecki is a frequent bar association and law school speaker, as well as a seasoned authority on New York law, who frequently files official comments for consideration on new rules and laws.  In 2014, she visited Senators and House of Representatives members’ offices to garner support for the Investor Choice Act of 2013, currently on the floor of the House of Representatives, and to persuade the Senate to pass similar legislation.


 


Ms. Malecki is a member of and has been on the Board of Directors (and an Officer of) the Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association (PIABA), a member of the Board of Directors of The PIABA Foundation – a non-profit organization with a mission to educate investors and provide the public with information about abuses in the financial services industry and the securities dispute resolution process. She has been a member of the Securities and Exchanges Committee at the New York City Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association, having spoken many times at the Practicing Law Institute (PLI), the New York City Bar Association and the New York County Lawyers Association, Brooklyn Law School, St. John’s Law School and New York Law School, as well as participating annually in PIABA’s year-end conference. Ms. Malecki has appeared on Wall Street Journal Live, NBC’s Today Show, Fox Business News, ABC’s Eyewitness News, Bloomberg Television, China TV, EBR TV and several other syndicated shows and networks.  She has also appeared on Steve Forbes’ in-flight radio show “America’s Most Influential Women in Government, Technology, Business, and the Law”, as well as other nationally syndicated radio programs. She and her cases have been and continue to be cited in numerous industry publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Forbes and Newsweek. The Wall Street Journal featured Ms. Malecki in an educational video clip about the arbitration process at FINRA, the Financial Regulatory Authority. Ms. Malecki’s career has been the subject of an article of Law Crossing.


 


Jenice L. Malecki’s experience as a New York securities attorney began in class action litigation, having worked on the famed class action case In re Crazy Eddie in the counsel’s office of the lead plaintiffs. Throughout the 1990’s she represented numerous broker dealers and was instrumental in regulatory matters involving well-known “boiler room” stock fraud characteristic of the era. In 1999, Ms. Malecki founded her own practice, MALECKI LAW, in Manhattan, which today employs an esteemed staff of securities arbitration and employment lawyers.


 


Ms. Malecki was awarded Martindale-Hubbell’s highest legal ability rating of “AV Preeminent”, a distinction she has long maintained. This rating “identifies a lawyer with very high to preeminent legal ability”, and is a reflection of one’s “expertise, experience, integrity, and overall professional excellence.” These ratings, “established by attorneys for attorneys, clearly indicate [Ms. Malecki] demonstrate[s] the highest professional and ethical standards.”
