Lawyer Profiles

Malecki Law provides comprehensive, skilled representation through highly qualified New York securities fraud attorneys who prioritize high quality legal services within a client’s budget and risk tolerance. Malecki Law takes its client’s confidences and trust extremely seriously.

It is critical to understand what an established relationship between clients and their lawyers entails. First and Foremost, the attorney client privilege of confidentiality attaches on the very first call or email when a potential client seeks representation. Even if the lawyer is not engaged, the secrets that the client has told the lawyer can never be divulged. Through rules such as attorney-client privilege, the sanctity of correspondence between an individual and their legal representation is preserved in a way that applies legally, opens the pathway for transparency, and creates a higher potential for success. Attorney-client privilege is a directive indicating that an attorney is not at liberty to reveal any confidential information of their client. This entitlement functions to ensure proper representation based on all relevant information – i.e., the good and the bad – so that the client knows what risks it faces in any litigation and the costs to achieve the goals. Whether a potential client engages in communication with an attorney for legal advice, a lawyer acts within their legal capacity (as opposed to a personal relationship) or there was a private communication intended to be kept as such by the client, the attorney-client privilege applies.

Specific to New York securities fraud attorneys, there are a variety of cases involving insider trading through which a relationship or partnership built upon confidentiality, trust, and confidence is broken by using nonpublic information to purchase securities or tip information to other parties, etc. The SEC has been involved with filing various insider tradition lawsuits between parties including attorneys, financial professionals, and parties in which confidentiality is required for the effective existence of capital markets. This highlights the importance of preserving and pursuing confidentiality between a lawyer and a client. The moral of this story is that attorneys can in no way act on information derived in a confidential relationship, including for their own benefit. Similarly, if a wrongdoer or a whistleblower tells confidential information to a lawyer, the lawyer may not report that conduct or information to any state, federal, regulatory or self-regulatory body unless required and permitted to prevent death or serious injury.

In addition, a securities fraud law firm in New York is expected to keep all written and oral communications with their clients private unless otherwise noted. A client’s consent is valued even when divulging confidential information within the legal team of that legal practice. Only a client can determine the conditions in which to waive the privilege, such as the “reliance on counsel” defense. These rules of confidentiality prevent legal counsel from being able to testify about any statement made by their clients or even consider speaking about information regarding a client informally.

The attorney client privilege is taken seriously and is the foundation of interactions at Malecki Law between you and your securities fraud lawyer in New York. Two facets create an attorney-client relationship: an individual that seeks legal advice and the attorney that provides legal advice or resources to access legal advice. Once that relationship is created, then there are professional obligations between the client and the attorney that must be maintained. Once a relationship-driven by professional responsibility is established, an attorney’s fundamental requisite is to provide competent representation as well as be a diligent advocate.

Fraud can severely impact individuals through various walks of life and strain their financial security. Malecki Law has worked to support client needs and strive for favorable results for over two decades. Attorney’s at Malecki law have prioritized professionalism, efficiency, and diligence while serving their clients. Malecki Law has served whistleblowers, industry professionals, Fortune 500 companies as well as everyday citizens that want justice.

An excellent professional who represented us in trial regarding a bank fraud, an unexpected and difficult time. 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!
