James Eddie Lyons Lawsuit Attorneys


The attorneys of Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane seek compensation on behalf of individual investors who are victims of broker misconduct, unauthorized trading, or investment fraud. Broker misconduct or outright fraud take many forms.  Some are easy to detect, and others require careful investigation and analysis.  We represent investors who were victims of activities included but not limited to:


  • Excessive trading or account “churning”;
  • Unsuitable investment recommendations;
  • Lack of diversification or over-concentration;
  • Recommendations that lack reasonable basis;
  • Unauthorized trading;
  • Sales of fraudulent investments;
  • Misrepresentations or false promises;
  • Failure to disclose risks;
  • Unvetted investment products;
  • Sales of unapproved investments;
  • Theft of customer funds; and
  • Sales of Ponzi scheme investments.


Most investment professionals are honest and take their duties very seriously.  In fact, we are sometimes contacted by investment professionals who bring questionable transactions to our attention. The few financial advisors who are dishonest, however, can wreak havoc with an investor’s life savings. As with the allegations against Eddie Lyons, we often see one or more of these products or transactions in cases that involve broker misconduct, unauthorized trading, and investment fraud:


  • Oil and gas investments;
  • Real estate investment trusts (“REITs”);
  • Variable annuities;
  • Investments in real estate;
  • Tenant-in-common (“TICs”) programs;
  • Collateralized mortgage obligations (“CMO”);
  • Collateralized debt obligations (“CDO”);
  • Auction rate securities;
  • Asset backed obligations;
  • Private placements;
  • Hedge funds;
  • Algorithmic trading (“formula-based” trading);
  • “Alternative investments”;
  • High-yield bonds;
  • Commodities;
  • Options and margin trading;
  • Offshore funds; and
  • Promissory notes.


These products are not necessarily fraudulent, however inappropriate conduct by investment professionals often involves some or more of these. We represent individual and institutional investors that were victim to broker misconduct and investment fraud. We are committed to investigating these claims.  In our experience, most fraudulent investment schemes have one thing in common: they are crimes of confidence.  Investors are usually persuaded to invest their money because they trust either the professional broker, advisor, or the financial institution that recommended the investment.
