Investor Fraud In Philadelphia

Arguably the birthplace of our country, Philadelphia is rich in historical tradition. Unfortunately, part of that history includes investor frauds and Ponzi schemes that cost investors millions upon millions of dollars. In the 90s, it has been reported that a notorious Ponzi Scheme was set up under the guise of a philanthropy, named the Foundation for New Era Philanthropy, that raised over $500 million from 1100 donors (mostly Christian charities in Philadelphia) and embezzled $135 million of this. In 2009, charged were filed against Joseph S. Forte, a fund manager for running a $50million Ponzi scheme for over a decade and was finally sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Frauds and misleading financial schemes are not problems isolated only to large cities or specific parts of the country.

Client Reviews
Jenice and her staff are all excellent - highly responsive, answer as many questions as you have in a way that you can understand, are very patient, sympathetic to your situation, and make you feel comfortable during a difficult and stressful time. I never once had to follow up - they always came to me to keep me updated by phone and mail. I highly recommend them.
★★★★★
I worked with Jenice and her team to successfully resolve a brokerage / securities related issue for an elder relative and was quite pleased with how they walked us through the process and took into account the challenges that age sometimes unfortunately present. They were all professional - and effective. I would use them again without question if the need arose.
★★★★★
Jenice is truly a rock star! My wife and I contacted her to help with a quick-turn-around closing on our apartment. Fast, friendly, and fabulously informed about the process and what we'd need to stay on track to close on time, Jenice never skipped a beat. She's a dedicated attorney that goes above and beyond for her clients. Honestly, what more could you ask for?
★★★★★
Ms. Malecki defended a commercial litigation case for my client, and did a very professional job. Her motion practice was direct and she was honest with the client regarding the merits of the various issues involved. She was professionally courteous but also held her ground with opposing counsel as required. Her billing estimates were accurate as well, which was greatly appreciated in order to make appropriate business decisions.
