GOODMAN & NEKVASIL P.A, MAY RECOVER YOUR INVESTMENT LOSSES – JEFFREY HAMILTON HOWELL BARRED FROM SECURITIES INDUSTRY
Jeffrey Howell was barred from the securities and investment banking industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in October 2016 for falsifying documents, misstating account values, altering account statements, and refusing to respond to FINRA’s request for testimony.
Prior to this action, according to FINRA, an arbitration claim was filed in November 2014 alleging that Jeffrey Howell provided inaccurate IRA advice during Jeffrey Howell’s employment with UBS Financial Services Inc. UBS Financial Services Inc. settled this arbitration claim involving alleged misconduct by Jeffrey Howell for $220,000.
If you lost any money on investments with Jeffrey Howell while he was employed with UBS Financial Services Inc., you may be able to recover your losses from UBS Financial Services Inc. This is because UBS Financial Services Inc. had a duty to supervise Jeffrey Howell.
