Excellent representation and pleased with the outcome!
I recently received a settlement negotiated by Michael in a FINRA complaint regarding a badly represented REIT. I found Michael to be competent, always available, very thorough in all communications and on top of that very personable. I believe he did a great job of representing my interests and resolving the complaint. Highly recommended in anything involving FINRA or REIT issues.

Very pleased with his services.
Michael represented us when one of our investments went bankrupt. He explained what he was going to do and what the different results might be. Once a course of action was determined, Michael set about to obtain a fair and equitable settlement, in a very quick and efficient way. We enjoyed working with Michael and we were pleased with the end results of his work.

Very knowledgeable and professional
I hired Mr. Giarusso to help me recover some significant losses related to two real estate investment trusts (REITS), one of which went bankrupt, and the other of which has continually lost value over the last ten years. From the very beginning he clearly explained every step of what the process would be. Our successful working relationship always felt like a partnership. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for help in these kind of financial matters.

Great lawyer
Mr. Giarrusso delivered just what he said he would in my FINRA matter and got a fair settlement for me. He answered all of my questions and was always available when I needed him. I would not hesitate to use him again and highly recommend him.

First Class Representation
In cannot recommend Mr. Giarrusso enough. From our initial consultation, he was thorough in capturing every detail of my grievance. He also explained the scenarios and process very clearly and was always available if I had any questions. Due to his diligence and attention to details, I was successful in my suit and I could not be happier with his service. He is personable and showed a genuine interest in my case and in me as a person. I recommend him without reservations.

Expert representation - highly recommend
I recently hired Mr. Giarrusso to represent me and offer advice concerning a FINRA matter. As a financial advisor departing from the employment of a large Wall Street brokerage house, a dispute arose over monies deemed owed on an up front promissory note I had received some years ago when initially joining the firm. A former Wall Street employee himself, Mr. Giarrusso offered me considerable insight into both the mechanics of the debt collection process, as well as candid advice on the strengths and weaknesses of my case within the arena of FINRA arbitration. Mr. Giarrusso took the time to answer all my questions and was very thorough and efficient when discussing my case. After extensive negotiation with my former employer's lawyer, Mr. Giarrusso was not only successful in working out a repayment plan on the amount due, he was also able to reduce the debt I owed on the promissory note by nearly 25%.
