The attorneys at Gana Weinstein LLP are investigating BrokerCheck records reports that financial advisor Anthony Joslin (Joslin), currently employed by Garden State Securities, Inc. (Garden State Securities) has been subject to at least eight customer complaints, one employment termination for cause, and two regulatory actions during the course of his career. According to records kept by The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Joslin’s customer complaints alleges that Joslin recommended unsuitable investments, negligence, and breach of fiduciary duty among other allegations of misconduct relating to the handling of their accounts.
In June 2014 the State of Massachusetts brought a regulatory action against Joslin alleging that he has been subject to eight customer complaints and contributed $103,000 towards the settlement of complaints. Further, Joslin resigned while under investigation from the Grayson Financial, LLC brokerage firm under allegations that he misappropriated proprietary information from the firm. Further, the state found that Joslin had been subject of an NASD action due to his failure to supervise and prevent violations of the securities laws by those under his supervision. The state of Massachusetts placed Joslin under heightened supervision for 3 years.
In June 2019 a customer complained that Joslin violated the securities laws by alleging violations of the securities laws including breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and negligence. The claim alleges $300,763 in damages and is currently pending.
