Miami Securities Fraud Attorney
Representing Clients in Fort Lauderdale & the Neighboring Communities
The stock market has enabled many people to go from rags to riches, but it does not come without an element of risk. You can just as easily lose it all as you can win the proverbial jackpot. That is why many people go to brokers or financial advisors in order to take the more conservative approach. Not all brokers are honest, however. Securities fraud is committed when any person willfully misrepresents the security that they are selling in order to obtain a financial gain.

At The Hoffman Firm, we have nearly 20 years of legal experience, and we are prepared to build a solid case on your behalf.

Securities Fraud Crimes under Florida Law
§517.011 of Florida code states that securities fraud is any action that employs any device, scheme, or artifice to defraud:
- To obtain money or property by means of any untrue statement of a material fact or any omission to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements made, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; or
- To engage in any transaction, practice, or course of business which operates or would operate as a fraud or deceit upon a person.
Defenses to Securities Fraud Charges
In order to sustain a charge of securities fraud, the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you willfully misrepresented the security that you sold to your client for your own personal financial gain. This is a high bar for the state to meet.
Your lawyer may be able to argue that you either lacked the full scope of the facts regarding the security that you sold or could not have predicted the fluctuations of the market. It is important that you contact an attorney immediately to prepare your best defense.
