At Anthony M. Abraham, Esq., PC., our Credo is the same as that of General Douglas McArthur:“There is No Substitute for Victory”
What “Victory “ means in the context of a securities arbitration is an honest assessment of chances of a favorable result on an economic basis. It means brutal honesty with the client and more brutal pursuit of a miscreant broker or investment advisor.We Stress Zealousness, Perfection and Honesty in Our Work
Perfection: We labor to make sure that our work product is of the highest quality. Every case is thoroughly researched and concluded. We navigate around all issues and try to be right on target.
Zealousness: We leave no stone unturned. Every pitfall is analyzed. Every Statement of Claim is researched, every motion, and every trial or hearing is prepared.
Honesty: We adhere to the highest standard of professional ethics. But the most important ethical consideration in our view, is being brutally honest as to where we stand and whether settlement of going to trial or Hearing is the best choice.
Conclusion: Every case is prepared for trial. We cannot assure a good settlement unless we prepare, from day One to appear at trial or Hearing. In the course of discovery, if we uncover adverse facts, or a limited possibility of collection, we advise immediately, but are prepared top “go to trial of hearing” in all circumstances.Call Us for a Free Consultation
