Large Financial Schemes in Cowboy Country

Texas is the largest state in the “Continental US” and trails only California in population size. Apparently trying to prove that everything really is bigger in Texas, Financier R. Allen Stanford allegedly operated a 20 year long scheme that ultimately defrauded roughly 30,000 investors out of more than $7 billion, one of the most notorious securities frauds in U.S. history. Most recently, SEC has reportedly charged Frederick A. Voight of Houston for operating a $114 million scheme where he raised funds for Driver Alertness Detection Scheme through promissory notes while guaranteeing 42% return, but in reality funneling the money to pay investors in a previous fraudulent scheme, typical of Ponzi schemes.

Client Reviews
  • Jenice Malecki and Bob Van De Veire did an excellent job on the meditation they handled for me and a group of investors. They were thorough, well-prepared, and knew exactly how to pitch our case. Hope not to need lawyers for FINRA claims again, but would not hesitate to use Malecki Law again.
    ★★★★★
  • 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.

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.
