New Jersey Securities Account Churning Attorney

New Jersey has hundreds of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to excessively trade or churn customer accounts to generate commissions and engage in all kinds of stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and New Jersey securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.

For example, Halil Kozi, of North Middletown, New Jersey was suspended for two years by FINRA for excessive trading, known as churning, and unsuitable options recommendations and trades. From June 2013 through February 2015, Halil Kozi was employed by PHX Financial, Inc. According to FINRA’s findings, Mr. Kozi allegedly recommended transactions in a client’s account that were quantitatively unsuitable and excessive and inconsistent with the customer’s risk profile, growth objectives, and financial needs. FINRA found that Mr. Kozi recommended risky, speculative equity and options transactions which generated gross commissions of over $135,000 while causing the customer to incur losses of approximately $72,000. Without admitting or denying the FINRA findings, Halil Kozi was suspended from association with any FINRA member for two years. The suspension is in effect from April 6, 2020 through April 5, 2022.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Robert Pearce is part of that unusual breed of lawyers that are able to create empathy with clients and thoroughly adopt their cause. No half efforts here. He and his group of professionals are outstanding strategists that can execute with precise fervor and unyielding determination. Theirs is a huge wave of facts, research, precedents and preparation, that has impressed me in its thoroughness and creativity, and most importantly with the results. No stone goes unturned and no effort is ever spared. In my book, he and they are those of a very rare kind that one wants to keep for a very long time. Ramon F.
★★★★★
This law firm is the real deal. We were so lucky that they took our case as they have so much experience in securities and all the wrongdoing that happens in these investment companies where they mislead you and your money (as in our case) into schemes that are not what you think they are. Mr. Robert Pearce is one of the best lawyers around, a truly professional who will fight for you and will tell you as it is all the time. Astrid M.
★★★★★
Mr. Pearce is a great professional and attorney. He led me through every step of the process in a clear, direct and straightforward manner. I highly recommend him as a securities attorney. Rey S.

Just like the song from HAMILTON, it's so nice to have Bob Pearce on your side. He is the consumate plaintiff's lawyer: smart. dedicated, fully able to try a case but a great negotiator in a mediation. He did a wonderful job for us, fully supporting us through the process and more than holding his own against a large national law firm. Maurice Z.

No lawyer except Bob said I had a chance of winning. When Ubs lawyers laughingly offered me zero to settle the dispute, Bob became even more determined to prove everybody wrong. Bob was extremely prepared, and always a step ahead of the opposing attorneys throughout the arbitration. In the end, Bob and I had the last laugh when the arbitrators awarded me almost 6 million dollars. J. Blanco
