The laws and regulations that might apply to any potential securities claims you might have will depend on the specific circumstances of your case. That is why it is important to meet with an experienced securities attorney in order to evaluate your claims and determine whether you could be entitled to recover damages.

If you hire Jacobson Law P.A., our attorneys will take the time to meet with you personally to learn the unique facts of your case, to make sure we fully understand your specific goals and objectives, and to determine the strengths and merits of your potential claims.

In the meantime, you can complete the following questionnaire to get a general sense of whether you might have a viable securities claim and could be entitled to damages under the law. This questionnaire is offered for informational purposes only and is not intended to be a substitute for the professional judgment of an experienced securities attorney.
