Virginia Securities Arbitration Attorney for Junk Bond Investment Dispute

Virginia 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 misrepresent and mislead investors about investing in non-investment grade bonds also known as Junk Bonds and engage in all kinds of stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and Virginia securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.

For example, Jeffrey Stephen Geraci, a broker formerly with Newport News, Virginia-based MICG Investment Management, LLC, was sanctioned by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) based on findings that Mr. Geraci made an unsuitable recommendation to a customer regarding a bond offering’s high-risk, speculative nature that was not consistent with the customer’s profile and the remainder of her portfolio. FINRA found that the bond, a Series A 9% Convertible Note issued by MICG Wealth Management, was illiquid and left the customer unable to sell if she needed funds. FINRA also determined that Mr. Geraci ignored visible red flags in the circumstances relating to the offering; and although he read the PPM, he did not heed its warnings of risk. Mr. Geraci of Virginia Beach, Virginia was suspended from association with any FINRA member in any capacity for two business days and ordered to pay $50,000, plus interest, in restitution to a customer. The suspension was effective from March 18, 2013 through March 19, 2013.

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
