A typical case we have handled involves a Megabucks lottery winner located in the Midwest. The client trusted his earnings with a major brokerage firm and a Milwaukee accounting firm. Financial advisors from the firm invested much of his money in unsuitable stocks and “breathtakingly irresponsible” investments for the former factory worker resulting in massive losses. We successfully sued to recover those funds. We’ve also handled cases for winners of large lottery jackpots like for the $768 million Powerball winner in Wisconsin in April of 2019 handling the building of the financial and legal teams to secure and grow the corpus in a prudent and responsible manner.
