NYC Bar Association


For nearly 25 years, Malecki Law has been a prominent securities firm in the heart of the Wall Street district in lower Manhattan. We litigate broadly on securities matters in the courts and in FINRA arbitration, representing both investors and financial professionals against the world’s largest brokerage firms. We defend Ohioans, both individuals and businesses, in securities and regulatory matters, whether related to licensing or federal and state securities violations.

If you are an investor or a retiree: we can help you if you suffered stock market losses whether due to a fraud or Ponzi scheme, negligence or failed supervision of your account, or unsuitable investments that may have been recommended to you. Our securities attorneys are experienced practitioners in the FINRA arbitration forum, which is the forum most retail investors are required to litigate their claims. Generally, retail claims for investment losses cannot be brought in court.

If you are a financial professional: we can help you to resolve employment matters involving your old firm, as well as help you negotiate a transition to a new one. Our attorneys have extensive experience in defending claims for repayment of bonus money received in the form of promissory notes. We can also help you bring your own claims for unfair employment practices, including breach of contract, and expungement of defamatory remarks or customer complaints from your Form U5.

If you received a subpoena: we can help you respond to subpoena requests for documents or testimony from a regulator, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), or the Ohio Division of Securities.

The Ohio Division of Securities recently held its World Investor Week to promote awareness and investment tips among Ohioans about financial fraud. However, relying solely on civil or criminal authorities to make you whole is a long and opaque process that can take many years. There is also no guarantee that the authorities will see your case to the finish line so that you make a full financial recovery. Malecki Law often works with the authorities to assist our clients who have been victimized by financial fraud, but we do so with the expectation that any assistance provided is a “one way street.” Meaning, the authorities expect you to cooperate and give them information about how you were defrauded, but in return they do not give you much information to help with your civil case or any other sense of progress in their investigation (or on whether an investigation even remains open in the first place). It is important to have an attorney familiar with securities and working with the authorities to ensure that your statements are consistent and do not later preclude you from a civil recovery.

So even though it may be comforting to know that the authorities are aware that you have been harmed, it is still important to seek a parallel recovery via civil lawsuit against the parties who harmed you. Our securities attorneys have recovered tens of millions of dollars on behalf of investors and retirees who have been harmed in the markets. Malecki Law follows all guidelines to ensure that you are properly represented in your state. Call us for a free consultation, as many of our clients choose a contingency arrangement where we do not get paid unless you do.

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!
