Meet Securities Lawyer Russell Forkey

When it comes to securities law, experience is paramount. An inexperienced lawyer may not recognize all the claims you have available and be able to properly develop all aspects of the case and present the facts at the trial/final hearing in an orderly and persuasive manner. Especially in arbitration, you only have one opportunity to examine the opposition, so you have to be ready for any challenge that might impact your case. Inevitably during the examination process, the first few questions are usually not the important questions that win or lose the case, it is the follow up questions that are asked as a result of the skill and experience of the attorney that enhance the probability of a favorable result. Protecting investors since 1980, attorney Russell Forkey knows how the process works and will be ready for anything that comes your way.

Russell L. Forkey, P.A. is a full service securities and commodities litigation/arbitration firm that represents:

-Customers of broker/dealers seeking to recover their investment losses as a result of, among other things, fraud, negligence, mismanagement and breach of fiduciary duties

-Customers of registered investment advisors and bank trust departments seeking compensation for, among other things, breach of contract, fraud, negligence, mismanagement and breach of fiduciary duties

-Customers of precious metal firms that have lost money as a result of material misrepresentations or omissions

-Customers involved in commodities options trading abuses

-Investors in Regulation D offerings, including such things as private placements, promissory notes, debentures, common or preferred stock, an investment contract, a preorganization subscription, or a viatical settlement investment.


Representing investors since 1980, Mr. Forkey has handled numerous arbitration hearings, required by the binding arbitration clauses signed by investors, and appeared in court on many matters involving securities and commodities litigation. Mr. Forkey has been called upon by other legal professionals to review and dispute decisions, made during "binding" arbitration proceedings and has been retained to take these matters through the appellate process.

There is never a charge for a consultation and Russell L. Forkey, Esq., is personally involved in every aspect of a case.
