Timothy J. O'Connor has been practicing Stockbroker and Personal Injury Law for more than 28 years. If you've lost money through the unsuitable, unauthorized, or fraudulent trading activities of your stockbroker, we can help you determine if it's possible to get your money back.
In addition, we provide legal representation in FINRA arbitration proceedings to pursue your claim and hopefully collect the money that's rightfully yours. We offer an initial consultation free of charge to help determine whether or not you have a valid claim for recovery.
Because we usually work on a contingency fee basis, we charge no legal fees unless a recovery is made. Clients remain responsible for all costs and disbursements incurred in pursuing a client claim. Please contact us for any additional information you might need.
Mr. O'Connor's approach to representing victimized investors includes using the resources of nationally-recognized expert witnesses and professionals to analyze and calculate trading losses and monetary damages, as well as the utilization of legal, professional, and industry standards.
