About me

As experienced Los Angeles Securities Attorneys, we represent
individuals, trusts, IRAs, pension plans, and estates in securities
arbitration cases against stockbrokers, brokerage firms, and
investment advisors. Our goal is to recover as much of the client's
losses as the specific facts of the case and the law allow.

Our Firm takes pride in having represented numerous aggrieved
investors who have suffered substantial economic loss as a result of
one or more of the various types of broker misconduct:

  • Negligence

  • Suitability

  • Failure to Supervise the Activity of a
    Customer Account

  • Failure of the Brokerage Firm to Adequately
    Supervise the Broker

  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty

  • Misrepresentation and Fraud

  • Overconcentration and Lack of Diversification

  • Churning of an Account

  • Purchase of inappropriate including annuities,
    variable life insurance and other securities.

  • Hedge Fund Losses

Call our office today if you have experienced losses
that you believe may have been caused by any of these forms of
misconduct, or by any other act or omission which contributed to or
caused the losses. We undertake representation of claimants on a
contingency basis which means, of course, that if there is no
recovery, there is no fee charged. Likewise, we do not charge any fee
for a telephonic or office consultation. The facts of every case are
different and not all market losses are recoverable. In addition,
clients are responsible for filing fees and incidental costs, both of
which vary based upon the amount of the claim.

Although our office is in the Los Angeles area, we
currently represent or have represented clients from numerous other
states and at least six foreign countries. As a respected Securities
Attorney, Mr. Evans has been chosen by Los Angeles Magazine as a
Southern California Super Lawyer in the field of Securities
Litigation for 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Annually, “Super Lawyers”
are selected by their peers based upon ethics, experience and
reputation, representing the top 5% of their profession.

During your free consultation, we can discuss the details
of any situation in which you believe:

  • You have suffered losses due to the errors or
    omissions of your broker, whether intentional or negligent

  • Your broker/brokerage has been promoting
    investment products (stocks, options, warrants, etc.) that were
    unsuitable for your investment objectives and risk tolerance

  • Your account has been churned

  • Your account has in some way been negligently

If you or someone you know in Southern California,
