Smith Barney Class Action

Our lawyers have come across several examples of Smith Barney fraud in recent years. We continue to pursue Smith Barney lawsuits and arbitration claims when appropriate.

In 2010, a former Smith Barney financial advisor admitted to making an unauthorized $3.25 million transfer from a client’s account into an offshore bank account. He falsified documents to trigger the transfer and lied to the client about where the money was sent in order to cover up the fraud.

The previous year, in 2009, Smith Barney agreed to reimburse mostly elderly clients who had more than $800,000 bilked from their accounts by a Smith Barney employee who forged signatures to transfer funds from customer accounts.

If you have a possible Smith Barney arbitration claim or lawsuit, contact one of our Smith Barney attorneys 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.
