The Who and What

Skilled & Experienced Legal Services for Investors Injured by Broker Fraud or Misconduct

tv-fp2

I am Tucker Veach

I have been litigating commercial and securities matters since 1983.  First in Houston, then in D.C., I had the opportunity to work with some of the nation’s most gifted leaders pinioned at the intersection of high finance and investment and legal thought.  These lawyers included a former  General Counsel at the SEC, whom I had the privilege of working for a number of years. I have represented clients in the finance and investment sphere for 20 years.

My focus in the area of investment disputes was triggered by a case that involved three elderly couples and an elderly widow who were defrauded by their highly trusted stockbroker.  The experience broke their lives in so many ways; first financially, then socially, ultimately stealing their faith and hope. It was heart wrenching and intolerable. While working at two large law firms I was involved in cases concerning hundreds of millions of dollars, but handing a check representing the return of a substantial part of their investment losses to Mr. and Mrs. Bridgers (age 92 and 90) is still the most satisfying moment of my career.

My Qualifications and Activities

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Yale in 1975, and my law degree from Georgetown University School of Law in 1983. I attended the Hotchkiss School for high  school, after which I spent a year at Malvern College in England as an English Speaking Union Scholar.

I am licensed to practice law in Texas, the District of Columbia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, as well as being admitted to represent clients before FINRA in SEC regulated arbitration nationwide. I practice law from my home base in the town of Asheville, nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina,  where I grew up and returned about 20 years ago.

I support and fundraise for Alzheimer’s research and caregiver support, as so many among us are challenged by this traumatic and always deadly disease. I am a dedicated supporter of the Cradle of Forestry, a 6500-acre heritage site near Asheville that was dedicated by Congress in 1968 to “preserve, develop and make available for future generations the birthplace of forestry and forestry education in America”.  I am an active participant in pro bono programs, representing indigent individuals and employees when my experience and skills are required.

Because much of my practice takes place outside of Asheville, the enjoyment of travel has been a career-long benefit.  I enjoy community theater, tennis, skiing, and golf; and a good book and glass of wine are favored pastimes.

What We Do

All the services you need, all in one place.

Fighting for people damaged by the misconduct has been a career-long calling. Helping people restore their lives is an accomplishment for which I am each time proud.  I am driven to help those who find themselves lost and broken at the hands of trusted representatives like brokers and financial advisers.  I hold it an honor to have recovered tens of millions of dollars on behalf of investors. Over the years we have represented hundreds of individuals and entities alike in matters before the SEC, the FDIC, and FINRA through investigations and arbitration.
