Former Prosecutors with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Join Forces to Assist Investors in Puerto Rico
Three former prosecutors from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") have teamed together to assist investors who are experiencing significant losses as a result of the Bond Fund crisis in Puerto Rico. Walter J. Mathews with Mathews Wallace LLP in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; James D. Sallah with Sallah Astarita & Cox, LLC in Boca Raton, Florida and Mark David Hunter with Hunter Taubman Weiss LLP in Coral Gables, Florida, all worked together at the SEC's regional office in Miami, Florida and left the SEC to establish their own firms. The firms decided to work together on the Puerto Rico based bond loss claims by pooling their collective experience for the benefit of investors suffering significant losses due to the misconduct of certain broker dealers and their registered representatives. The team of attorneys is assisted by local counsel in Puerto Rico, namely Ramón "Ray" Dapena and Morell Bauzá Cartagena & Dapena LLC, located in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
