I am the managing partner at Stoltmann Law Offices and have been a licensed attorney since November 2009 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, Mallon & Johnson. I 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 mostly in representation
of investor interests, whatever the venue. I also do commercial/business disputes, civil litigation, and class 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 managing editor of the PIABA Bar Journal, and previously authored the “Cases and Materials" article which appears in every journal, and have previously authored “Investors, Cornered.”
