About Richard A. Lewins
Richard A. Lewins specializes in an area of law that most of his clients didn’t even know existed until meeting him. “Most people who invest their money with a financial advisor and lose it feel like it’s their fault or they should have known better,” Lewins says. He is one of a few hundred attorneys in the nation whose practice is centered on representing investors. He fights for the rights of investors and has represented clients in arbitrations before the NASD/FINRA, NYSE, and AAA, and has recovered substantial amounts through awards and settlement. He has a unique advantage, as prior to his law career, he held series 7 and 24 licenses and worked for national brokerage firms.
“Financial advisors have a responsibility to invest your money in a way that is suitable for you, and if they don’t, you can take action against them,” Lewins says. “They must put your interests ahead of their firm’s interests. If you suspect something’s not right, there are options.”
Richard Lewins has been a featured speaker and author in the area of securities and securities litigation for the American Association for Justice, State Bar of Texas, The University of Texas School of Law, Dallas Bar Association, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Financial Executives Institute.
