Securities Litigation Experience - Transcript

I have a very interesting background as a securities litigator. I started in class action securities litigation uh when I was just a young lawyer and for some of the older people in the crowd you may remember a company called Crazy Eddie. It was famously in the movie Splash, it was one of the commercials that Daryl Hannah looked at on the tv, but Crazy Eddie was a an electronics retailer with a very flamboyant commercial who decided to go public and defraud all of his investors. We got an eight-figure settlement um which back in the early 90s was a huge amount of money um and we also helped the US marshals go and catch Crazy Eddie.

So that was a really fascinating experience that I had, it was front page news when I was traveling to work in the subway, um I moved from the class action securities litigation to a securities defense firm that represented the progeny of the Wolf of Wall Street and I got entangled as a also a fairly young attorney uh representing um a lot of the people that you might have seen in that movie and I can tell you anecdotally that the movie was tame compared to what actually happened.

So those people broke every rule, and when you’re representing people that break every rule, you learn every rule inside and out, and I did customer arbitrations for them and I did regulatory defense with for them and I helped them get more brokers if you could believe it during the time that it was all happening in regulatory hearings.

So, at the end of that I was able to start Maleki Law and I uniquely made my practice as I wanted it to be. I wanted to do a little bit of both because I felt like it kept my skills very high and it kept me grounded on both sides, so that I know what the other side is thinking in either situation.

I speak at bar associations I am the co-chair of the Securities Arbitration Committee for the New York State Bar Association i have been on tv and in the newspapers and truly Maleki Law has been my dream job and I i love my clients and my colleagues.

I highly recommend Jenice and her team at Malecki Law. I had a challenging, and lengthly case. Jenice was professional, very knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with.

Jenice is truly a miracle worker and one of the top securities lawyers. She handled a very difficult case for us, displaying her legal knowledge, intelligence, and savviness throughout the process. I cannot recommend her enough. The quality of work from her team rivals that of corporate law firms. She was always available, extremely professional, and made sure to know all the details of the case. We were very fortunate to have been referred to Jenice and highly recommend her for any securities related legal issues. Nathan A.
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!
