Our Orange County and Rockland County Attorneys Defend Clients Accused of Securities & Commodities Fraud
Protecting defendants’ rights for over 38 years
Securities can be good investments. However, the reliance of clients on their brokers and banks can make the industry rife with fraud. Because of this fact, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), and other New York and federal agencies pursue these cases aggressively. Many of these cases involve a number of people, but only one scapegoat. Blame may be placed squarely on you even though you were only a minor player or were not at all responsible for mishandling funds.

Our team of dedicated professionals guides you through each stage of your criminal defense, from the moment an investigation begins until we have exhausted every avenue for reaching the best possible outcome in your case.
Types of securities and commodities schemes
Securities fraud includes various plans to manipulate the market, steal from securities accounts, make illicit wire transactions, and misrepresent or withhold material information. Some of the more common methods of perpetrating a securities crime include:
Securities violations typically carry both civil and criminal penalties that may include incarceration, fines, restitution and clawback of funds – which often requires sale of assets to pay investors back.
