When you searched for “best investment fraud lawyer” on Google, you came across a few different directory websites that claim to “rank” or “review” investment fraud law firms.

As a consumer, you rely on these types of websites to give you an unbiased opinion on who the top service providers are.

Unfortunately, the investment fraud lawyers that you see at the top of these lists have likely paid to be there. Directories are a pay-to-play platform where the best firms are not necessarily the ones that are listed first.

This means that the order in which the lawyers are listed, or ranked, is not based on merit or quality, but rather on who is willing to pay the most money to publish them closer to the top.

These directory websites have neither the knowledge nor expertise to determine who the best investment fraud lawyers actually are. They are looking to make a quick buck by selling ad space to the highest bidder.

That is why I decided to write this article.

With over 40 years of experience in the securities industry, I have first-hand knowledge of the top investment fraud law firms in the United States.

How Did We Select the “Best” Investment Fraud Lawyers?

There are many different ways to identify the best investment fraud lawyers.

We used a number of factors in order to narrow down our list to the five best investment fraud lawyers in the country.

We started by looking at background and experience. All of the lawyers on our list have worked as prosecutors or in some capacity for the SEC or FTC. This experience is important because it gives them insight into how these cases are handled from the other side.

All of the above lawyers focus their practice on the securities industry and have experience representing investors who have been the victim of securities fraud.

In addition, we considered AV Preeminent® ratings, which are the highest possible rating that can be received for both ethical standards and legal ability. These ratings are “more valid” than other legal accolades because they come from one’s peers in the legal community.

Finally, we considered the results that these lawyers have been able to obtain for their clients. All of the lawyers on our list have a proven track record of recovering millions of dollars for their clients through arbitration and litigation.

We have worked with each of the above lawyers in the past and can attest to their experience, ability, and dedication to protecting the interests of investors.

You Don’t Need an Investment Lawyer “Near Me”

You don’t need to find an investment lawyer “near me” in order to get the best representation possible.

While it may be helpful to meet with a lawyer in person, many investment fraud cases can be handled without the need for a face-to-face meeting.

How come?

Unlike other forms of law, investment fraud cases are handled through a process called FINRA arbitration; this process does not quire that investors, such as yourself, hire a lawyer who is local to your state.

In fact, many of the best investment fraud lawyers in the country represent clients who live in different states or even different countries.

This can be a big benefit to you as you can hire the best investment fraud lawyer for your case, regardless of where they are located.
