Fort Lauderdale Securities, Commodities, and Precious Metals Fraud Law Attorney

South Florida Investment and Securities, Commodities and Precious Metals Fraud Lawyer, Russell L. Forkey

For more than 30 years, attorney Russell L. Forkey has provided securities, commodities and precious metals litigation and arbitration representation to investors from pre-filing investigation through trial and/or final hearing. Our law firm understands the financial and emotional devastation associated with investment losses caused by negligence, broker fraud and other misconduct. We have seen firsthand, the severe financial impact and feeling of betrayal that investors have had to suffer with as a result of single or multiple breaches of trust, negligence or outright fraud.

Because of the severe emotion distress that results from these types of situations, it is difficult for an investor to come to grips with what has happened to his or hers financial security blanket. This is especially true for the elder investor, who does not have the ability to replace lost income and capital, for one spouse who has not yet confided in their partner concerning what has happened and for professionals such as doctors and lawyers whose pride and asset based has been damaged. Regardless, time is not on the investor's side. It is for this reason that you should locate a qualified professional and let him help you through the process of seeking justice and give you some peace of mind. In this vein, we are dedicated to assisting you to protect your rights, as well as your ability to pursue and obtain recovery for your losses.

At Russell L. Forkey, P.A., every client matters. Our legal team devotes substantial time and resources to helping clients attempt to achieve their goals of financial recovery and peace of mind. We base our representation on the quality of your claim as opposed to the amount of money that you have lost. It never makes sense to file a claim that is not supported by the facts or the law. No one wants to be taken advantage of twice. It is for this reason that we attempt to fully investigate your claim before you make a decision as to whether or not to file a claim. As a client, it does not make any sense to file a case before an initial investigation is completed because no one wants to put good money after bad.
