The Anton Legal Group offers each potential securities client a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION with an attorney who will give you a comprehensive assessment of your case.

Solving disputes with stock brokers and investment advisers to protect your family’s financial future.


At the Anton Legal Group you receive a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION for your securities case which will provide you with an assessment of your situation. This consultation typically includes the following steps:

  • STEP 1: Understanding the facts relevant to your case;
  • STEP 2: Analyzing probable outcomes and discussing realistic expectations for your case;
  • STEP 3: Explaining the securities arbitration process and timelines; and
  • STEP 4: Providing a breakdown of the estimated costs.

Our law firm focuses on quality over quantity. To ensure that our clients receive the time and attention they deserve, we intentionally keep our case load at a sensible level.


The more specific the information you can provide during your FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION, the more specific the advice your attorney can provide about the available options, strategies, and expectations for your case. Having specific information allows you and your attorney to craft an efficient and effective strategy for your case. Providing each and every item listed below at your FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION is often impractical or even impossible for most people. A comprehensive consultation can still be conducted with only a partial set of these documents. A typical securities arbitration case involving the unsuitable investment of a client’s money can best be analyzed if the client brings with them to their initial attorney consultation as many of the following documents as possible:

  • All account statements for the account(s) in question;
  • All documents provided by the investment/brokerage firm that you have signed;
  • All personalized (non-form letter) correspondence sent by the brokerage firm;
  • All letters that you have sent to your brokerage firm; and
  • Your federal income tax returns for all years in which the alleged abuse took place.

This initial consultation will be most effective if you can also provide us with an estimate of the amount of your losses and a general understanding of what might have gone wrong. Dependent upon the particular type of case, it will sometimes be most appropriate for the attorney to have a brief telephone discussion with the client prior to any formal face to face initial consultation. This will help ensure that the initial consultation will be most productive.


We provide a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION to potential securities arbitration clients. Once you have made the decision to go forward with your case, we will openly discuss with you the anticipated fees and costs associated with the services you need. Although fees and costs vary from case to case, securities arbitration cases may be accepted on either an hourly charge basis or a contingency fee basis.  In a contingency fee case, you pay no attorney fees unless and until you receive a money award. A more precise fee and cost analysis will be provided at the FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION.
