Baby Boomers

Investment Fraud Attorney

Since the financial crisis, Baby Boomers have lost 60% in the value of their investments.  These 80 million Boomers control over 80% of the wealth, buy 80% of the top range cars and make up 80% of the cruise industry. Despite this apparent wealth, 42% of Boomers are delaying retirement for at least another 10 years and 25% admit they will never be able to retire.  And Boomers are getting ripped off more than any other segment of the population. It’s estimated that Boomers lose over 25 billion dollars a year to investment fraud.  Many of these Boomers have lost monies due to the incompetence or fraud of brokerage companies and their financial advisors.  All too many investors, especially Boomers, thought they would have enough money  for their retirement years, but now have discovered they have been the victims of stockbroker fraud or unsuitable investment advice.  Whether it’s churning, unauthorized trading, risky limited partnerships, over concentration or merely bad investment advice, many Boomers are reluctant to do anything about recovering their losses because they don’t believe they can beat Wall Street. Some are just too embarrassed to admit that they have been “ripped off.”

We can help.  The Law Offices of John Lawrence Allen has been helping investors recover monies lost to the brokerage industry, registered investment advisors and stockbrokers since 1989.  We have represented over 1000 investors in FINRA arbitration and courts throughout the United States, winning over $100,000,000.  We won the largest percentage punitive damage award in FINRA history.  And we can help you on a contingent fee basis. That means that you will not be charged an hourly fee for receiving highly competent legal services.  If you lost $50,000 or less, you will not have to go to court or appear in front of a jury. You will not have to pay thousands of dollars in travel expense and you will not have to pay thousands of dollars to hire experts to testify on your behalf or accountants to perform forensic analysis.

Posted on our website you will find excerpts from many TV shows in which I discuss Senior abuse and the success I have achieved in recovering losses for Seniors.  I invite you to watch, learn and listen and then contact our firm to see if you have a valid claim.  Don’t wait to pursue your rights, because waiting too long may preclude you from recovering your losses because of time limitations imposed by FINRA and the court system.
