Dallas County Securities Fraud Lawyer
My law firm — the Law Offices of James R. Tucker, P.C. — successfully represented over 2,000 shareholders in a major securities fraud lawsuit against a large publicly traded company in litigation in several forums and multiple states against a major international law firm. I was able to obtain tens of millions of dollars being paid to my clients and others as a result of securities fraud perpetrated by the defendants involved.
This success was one of many securities fraud settlements that have marked my over 35-year career. I have achieved million- and multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for numerous clients in Texas and throughout the United States in securities fraud cases.
One such case involved a $13.8 million agreed judgment that I obtained on behalf of 36 elderly investors who were targeted by salesmen for Kinlaw Petroleum. The salesmen deliberately defrauded the investors by making false representations. In several cases, elderly investors lost their life savings. (Fryer v. Kinlaw, in Medina County, Texas)
I represent investors throughout Texas and nationwide, helping them to recover losses caused by the inappropriate actions of investment advisers and the companies they work for. In representing investors, my goal is to recover losses and other damages for them from stockbrokers and their firms.
