AAA vs. FINRA Arbitrations - Transcript

Triple-A is different from FINRA arbitrations in a number of ways so claims that the American Arbitration Association (AAA) are similarly handled as FINRA arbitrations meaning you file a complaint there’s some discovery and ultimately you have a hearing.

Triple-A arbitration has arbitrators that tend to be extremely high quality but they are extremely expensive. So, many investors prefer FINRA arbitration because they’ve already lost a lot of money.

And there’s some debate about whether or not it’s fair to force investors into aaa which many registered investment advisors do.

The good thing about FINRA over AAA is that if you do not pay a FINRA arbitration award your license is taken away.

So there’s a high incentive that once you go to arbitration if you get an award they will pay it because they don’t want to lose their license.

You know collection can be a terrible thing and in my business I’ve been fortunate over the years I’ve never really had collection issues because of this this uh benefit to FINRA arbitration.

Also FINRA arbitration every finner arbitration filed gets reviewed by FINRA regulatory, the enforcement arm, so that puts a bit of pressure on firms to settle sometimes because they don’t want things to come out that may happen in the investigation or that you cooperate with the investigation so there are some benefits to FINRA arbitration.

We were very fortunate to have been referred to Jenice and highly recommend her for any securities related legal issues. Nathan A.

A professional that worked hard, persevering and who stood toe to toe against firms that had a team of excellent lawyers backing them up. Her unflinching determination really stands out, it makes you feel you have someone who really cares about trying to recover what you lost from the people that wronged you. Salomon Levi
It is difficult to thank you in words when gratitude comes from the heart, so I will try to link feelings with writing. It is essential for us to mention your excellence as a professional, your aptitude on legal fields, and your unavoidable persistence. All of these virtues that elevate the profession you exercise in such an admirable way, go hand in hand with your sense of ethics, your human warmth and the transparency in your actions. To sum up, thank you for being a listening ear and for having the right word while transmitting information about the legal process. Having you as our representative during such an adverse situation was a privilege and enough reason for our eternal gratitude. Angeles Aparain
To say that my securities litigation was complex would be a severe understatement. With multiple parties involved and spanning many years, trying to understand the issues was daunting to say the least. Jenice and her team broke down the transactions by segment and by party uncovering every hidden expense. In the end, I was more than happy and could not thank Jenice and her team enough. I would not hesitate to recommend Jenice to anyone. She is highly professional, incredibly knowledgeable, well connected to industry experts, has a tireless work ethic and is so pleasant and easy to communicate with. Five stars for sure!
