Financial Advisor
Rob Herskovits is an outstanding lawyer who got FINRA to drop an investigation. He was patient and extremely responsive and is clearly an expert on FINRA matters. I am forever grateful to him and his team for their guidance throughout the stressful process. (I would give him 10 stars if I could) I believe you should hire Rob Herskovits and his team with any kind of securities industry arbitration or regulatory investigation.

Amazing Experience
Herskovits PLLC took on a FINRA arbitration and replaced my former attorney late in the game. Rob Herskovits immediately got up to speed and won the case for me. Rob Herskovits is a great lawyer and I strongly recommend him for any FINRA matter.

Finra matter
I was formerly employed by a large brokerage firm. After my employment ended, FINRA launched an investigation based on a Form U5 disclosure that I deemed to be false. I hired Rob Herskovits to handle the FINRA investigation and I’m so thankful I did. He took on FINRA and ultimately convinced them to end the investigation without taking any formal action against me. Herskovits PLLC are experts in the FINRA space.

Review of services
Before retirement, I was a top-producing financial advisor for one of the largest brokerage firms in the U.S. I’ve had occasion to deal with lots of lawyers over the years and Rob Herskovits is, without question, one of the best. He walked me though a FINRA investigation and 2 FINRA arbitrations and obtained stellar results for me every time. I believe you should hire Rob Herskovits and his team with any kind of securities industry arbitration or regulatory investigation.

Saving grace
I am thankful that Rob Herskovits was my lawyer. He ran circles around Wells Fargo at a FINRA arbitration and won the case for me, and even got me an award of attorneys’ fees, which I understand rarely happens. Rob is a true expert at FINRA’s rules and he knows the financial services industry backwards and forewords. Rob is a great lawyer and I recommend him without reservation.

Excellent Attorney
I give Rob Herskovits the strongest possible recommendation. He is an expert with legal matters pertaining to FINRA and the financial services industry. I am grateful that he was able to negotiate a favorable resolution for me with a FINRA disciplinary matter. It was clear to me that the FINRA lawyers respected Rob, and undoubtedly that helped bring about a favorable outcome. I feel fortunate to have had him by my side.

Rob has handled customer matters (mediations and arbitrations) as well as regulatory matters for my firm. He is very knowledgeable about the process, and can explain the details in layman's terms. Rob presented our case very well and achieved successful results in every engagement.

Highly Recommended
I give Robert my highest recommendation. He and his firm helped me through what could have been an extended and financially troubling time. I am not sure that I could have cleared up a false accusation by a previous client had it not been for Robert and his firm, and for that I am very grateful.
