The securities attorneys at Gana Weinstein LLP are currently investigating previously registered broker Paul Dangelo (Dangelo). According to BrokerCheck Records, Dangelo has been subject to six customer disputes, the majority concerning unauthorized trades and unsuitable investment recommendations in Puerto Rico bonds. In addition, Dangelo has been subject to termination from two firms of employment.
