Lincoln Financial Arbitration & Class Action

Our lawyers are investigating Lincoln Financial Advisors Corp. for negligence that led to millions of dollars in losses for hundreds of investors.

In 2010, the firm with headquarters in Fort Wayne, Indiana, was accused by the SEC of failing to supervise the actions of a broker who ran a Ponzi scheme that took more than $34 million from hundreds of investors around the country. If you were the victim of Lincoln Financial fraud, you could qualify to take part in Lincoln Financial lawsuit or arbitraion.

Lincoln Financial arbitration also includes a 2010 settlement of more than $4.4 million for the firm’s failure to prevent a selling away scheme. In that scenario, a broker was offering an outside product – a new software the broker was involved in – without Lincoln Financial’s approval. An arbitration panel ordered the payment of more than $4.4 million in damages and interest to those who were hurt by the selling away scheme.

If you were financially harmed in one of these cases involving the company, meet with a Lincoln Financial lawyer in our practice for a no-obligation consultation.

Client Reviews
Working with Joe was an absolute pleasure considering the unfortunate situation I was dealing with! He’s very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. He kept me informed in all aspects of my case in a timely manner. Whenever I contacted him with a question he responded quickly. His expertise came through for me! I would highly recommend him!

I hired Joe and his firm Stoltmann Law office to represent me in a case where my investment guy had lost a substantial amount of money in my account. He invested in some very speculative energy stocks which should not have been in my portfolio due to my request for a very conservative investment portfolio. I was very impressed and satisfied with the representation and negotiations on my behalf by Joe and Stoltmann Law offices and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who would be in need of a very fine firm.

Never having a need to file suit against anyone, let alone a major multi-national brokerage firm, I was at a loss to find a legal firm to assist me. After much searching, I found Stoltmann Law Offices, PC. They were very diligent and professional in the handling of my case and I am glad that I retained their services. I would definitely refer them to anyone seeking similar help. Donald F.
