Justin W Parker


Silver Law Group is investigating Del Mar, California-based Hilltop broker Justin Parker following a customer complaint alleging unsuitable investment recommendations, churning and elder abuse.

According to FINRA’s BrokerCheck report Parker, a complaint was received in August of 2017 alleging that Parker had provided unsuitable investment recommendations, churning and elder abuse, the complaint alleges $9,500,000 in damages. This complaint is currently pending FINRA arbitration.

Parker is currently employed by Hilltop Securities at their Del Mar, CA office, where he has been employed since 2008.

An unsuitable recommendation is a serious form of potential broker misconduct.  A broker’s employing firm is responsible for overseeing the broker to prevent such misconduct.  Failure to supervise is a claim made against a brokerage firm in these situations.

Elder financial abuse can occur when a financial advisor takes advantage of a because of their age or other factors.

Also, among other investment tenets, brokers are required to recommend suitable investments to their customers. This requires that the broker: Investigates and conducts due diligence into the investment’s attributes including its benefits, risks, tax consequences, and other relevant factors to form a reasonable basis for the recommendation of the product; and appropriately matches the investment with the customer’s specific investment needs and objectives, such as the customer’s retirement status, long or short-term goals, age, disability, income needs, or any other relevant factors.

When a broker or brokerage firm fails to recommend investments to its customers along those guidelines, there must be accountability.  If you have lost money on an investment that did not fit your investment profile, you may be able to recover some or all of your lost money.
