I founded Stafford Law Firm LLC in 2004 after gaining more than 20 years of securities law experience with multiple highly regarded firms. I focus my practice in the area of securities law representing clients in regulatory compliance, enforcement actions, and general regulatory matters. I also represent investors seeking recovery of lost funds.
I contribute to many eleemosynary activities, both in lecturing, writing, and furthering interests of the securities industry. I have acted as legal counsel for industry trade associations and provided educational programs for those associations.
