About me

Mr. Vernon is a founding partner of the Vernon Healy law firm. For more than 20 years, Mr. Vernon has focused his practice on the litigation and arbitration of complex business and financial matters, including securities fraud disputes.  During that time, Mr. Vernon has consistently advocated for the rights of investors throughout the United States and abroad—both in and out of the courtroom and arbitration hearing room.

He has recovered millions for individual investors and groups of investors with significant losses, including punitive damages, attorney’s fees, and amounts in substantial excess of client losses.  His firm’s investigations have also led to assisting individual financial professionals who are aligned with investors, especially those who attempt to assist their clients in recovering losses due to wrongdoing by financial institutions
