I have been litigating commercial and securities matters since 1983. First in Houston, then in D.C., I had the opportunity to work with some of the nation’s most gifted leaders pinioned at the intersection of high finance and investment and legal thought. These lawyers included a former General Counsel at the SEC, which whom I had the privilege of working for a number of years. I have represented clients in the finance and investment sphere for 20 years.
My focus in the area of investment disputes was triggered by a case that involved three elderly couples and an elderly widow who were defrauded their highly trusted stock broker. The experience broke their lives in so many ways; first financially, then socially, ultimately stealing their faith and hope. It was heart wrenching and intolerable. While working at two large law firms I was involved in cases concerning hundreds of millions of dollars, but handing a check representing the return of a substantial part of their investment losses to Mr. and Mrs. Bridgers (age 92 and 90) is still the most satisfying moment of my career.
