Diligent and Professional Securities Attorney
Never having a need to file suit against anyone, let alone a major multi-national brokerage firm, I was at a loss to find a legal firm to assist me. After much searching, I found Stoltmann Law Offices, PC. They were very diligent and professional in the handling of my case and I am glad that I retained their services. I would definitely refer them to anyone seeking similar help.

"Deanna is a fierce advocate for her clients. I would not hesitate to refer a victim of investment or securities fraud to her for a second. She has a unique ability and understanding of the specific arbitration forums where these investor disputes are resolved, which is incredibly important in this field. She grasps complex securities and investments with an ability to tear them apart, and present their flaws in an understandable way, which again in this field of practice is a must."
