In the sphere of securities law representation, there are few attorneys who maintain solo practices and who are unencumbered by obligations to the powers behind the securities industry. Even less common in the Los Angeles area are independent securities attorneys who have intimate experience with the machinery of securities regulation and legal process, yet have chosen to ally with the investors and stockbrokers who are often on the losing end of securities disputes.
I am Jonathan Schwartz, a veteran Los Angeles securities enforcement attorney. Since 1972, I have tried or arbitrated civil securities cases as an independent attorney. In my years in the practice of securities law, I have served as a trial attorney for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), an attorney advisor to Commissioner Philip Elman of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and as a compliance attorney for the Office of Foreign Direct Investment (OFDI) — an Office within the U.S. Department of Commerce created by the Executive Order of the President of the United States.
I understand the securities-related issues stockbrokers, broker-dealers and their customers face, and I have the experience and knowledge to resolve favorably my clients' situations, whether they are located in Southern California or elsewhere in the United States.
