I lost my entire life savings due to the actions of an unscrupulous financial advisor at a large national financial services company. Distraught, I turned to Andy, even though I had little hope anyone would be able to help me. Andy fought with the brokerage firm and quickly forced them to return all of my savings. It is not an exaggeration to say that Andy saved my life. I could not be more grateful for his help.
