I have been a licensed attorney since November 2009 and been with Stoltmann Law Offices since March 2005. Prior to Stoltmann Law Offices, I had a short stint as a paralegal with a Chicago securities defense firm. I am currently managing partner at Stoltmann Law Offices and am responsible for the day to day operations of the firm, docket and case management. Personally, I handle all aspects of case management from potential client/case intake to trying the case. I have successfully briefed, argued, and defeated numerous motions to dismiss before dozens of FINRA arbitration panels and courts of law.
I have successfully briefed motions to vacate arbitration awards before the Central District of California, Northern District of Illinois, and participated in appeals before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. I have appeared before FINRA arbitration panels in hundreds of cases and successfully mediated over one hundred investor cases. I also have experience appearing in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Circuit Court of DuPage County, Northern District of Illinois, American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) both under the Commercial Rules and Consumer Rules, and the Judicial Arbitration/Mediation Services (JAMS). My legal practice experience is almost exclusively in representation of investor interests, whatever the venue. I also do a small amount of commercial disputes and civl litigation work.
I have been a member of PIABA since 2009 and have participated as a member of the SRO committee, annual meeting committee, and other subcommittees on discovery abuses and E-discovery. I am currently the Editor-in-Chief of the PIABA Bar Journal. Previously, I served as the Managing Editor of the PIABA Bar Journal, I have served as an editor since 2014, have authored the “Cases and Materials” article which appears in every journal, and have previously authored the “Investors, Cornered” piece which appears in the journal regularly.
