Bradford M. Gucciardo is an experienced attorney whose work is devoted almost exclusively to the representation of stock market investors who have been victims of stockbroker and brokerage firm misconduct. Specifically, Mr. Gucciardo helps brokerage firm customers recover stock market losses, most often of retirement savings, that they sustained as the result of mishandling of their brokerage accounts. After he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in the study of English literature, creative writing and criminology from the University of South Florida, Mr. Gucciardo, a native New Yorker, returned to New York to attend St. John's University School of Law from which he earned his Juris Doctor degree. During law school, in addition to attending classes, Mr. Gucciardo worked as a law clerk in the legal departments of brokerage firms Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith, Inc. and Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Company. After graduation, Mr. Gucciardo worked both in private practice and as an in-house corporate attorney defending small, medium and large financial services companies/brokerage firms and their stockbrokers against claims brought by their customers. After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Mr. Gucciardo decided to expand his representation of brokerage firm customers and moved his law practice from New York City to the State of Florida, where many retirees relocate. Since his move to the sunshine state, from offices in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, Mr. Gucciardo has successfully represented numerous brokerage firm customers in arbitration proceedings conducted by the National Association of Securities Dealers Office of Dispute Resolution (NASD), the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the American Arbitration Association (AAA). Although Mr. Gucciardo is licensed to practice law in the states of New York and Florida, his law firm of Gucciardo Law Group, P.A. is a nationwide practice, which is able to represent brokerage firm customers nationwide. It took the tragedy of September 11th to convince attorney Brad Gucciardo to change his law practice from representing Wall Street to representing investors who are victims of Wall Street misconduct. Brad had been practicing law in New York City since 1999, representing brokerage firms and their stockbrokers against claims of fraud and other improper conduct, perpetrated upon innocent investors he lost many a night's sleep defending what he often considered to be criminal conduct. The attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001 changed all of that. In February 2002, Brad moved to Boca Raton and transformed his practice to representing stock market investors, seeking recovery of their investment losses. Now, more than thirteen years later, Brad has been busier than ever, continuing to help investors fight Goliath Wall Street brokerage firms. He recently decided to leave his twelve year law partnership to open Gucciardo Law Group, P.A. The firm has offices in Lakewood Ranch and is soon opening an office in downtown Delray Beach.
Brad has more than fifteen years of experience representing investors in securities arbitration proceedings; he fights for their rights and seeks recovery of money that should never have been lost. "Our clients are often innocent investors exposed to unsuitable investment recommendations, failures to follow instructions, unauthorized trading, misrepresentation and omission of important investment-related information, and, many times, fraud," Gucciardo explains. Through free consultations, Gucciardo Law Group reviews investment activity in brokerage accounts to determine if losses were caused by brokerage firm and stockbroker misconduct. If so, the law firm goes into action.
"We focus on taking cases that involve true victims of Wall Street misconduct. As a result, we are able to limit our caseload and devote the time necessary to aggressively litigate each client's claims." He adds: "This translates to our clients receiving the best representation possible. We handle each case, large or small, strong or weak, with the same level of aggressiveness. Every client is considered very important."
Brad is an experienced attorney whose work is devoted almost exclusively to Securities Law. Specifically, Brad helps investors nationwide seeking recovery of losses incurred in stock market and non-stock market investments; money that should never have been lost.
