Peiffer Wolf’s $5 Million Award on Behalf of Investors Including Miss Venezuela Featured in the WSJ

Attorney Joe Peiffer, managing member of the Peiffer Wolf law firm, was recently quoted in the Wall Street Journal.  Mr. Peiffer represented a group of investors, including blue-collar workers and retirees, who lost their life savings in an investment program.

One of the investors represented by attorney Peiffer was actress and singer Maria Conchita Alonso, who was former Ms. Venezuela. Ms. Alonso also lost her investment.

The case arose out of the negligent actions of their stockbroker, Rapheal Sanchez. The award was for more than $5 million.

Attorney Peiffer and his colleagues are now working to secure the award from Sanchez’s insurance company.

“We will not rest until our clients get back the money they lost.  Scottsdale insurance company took Mr. Sanchez’s premiums and now that he’s been found liable, it needs to make good on its policy,” said attorney Joe Peiffer.

The Peiffer Wolf law firm has a nationwide securities practice.  The Peiffer Wolf securities attorneys represent investors across the country who lost their savings as a result of investment fraud or misconduct.
