Stoltmann Law Offices is investigating Gary Bradshaw, a financial advisor with First Dallas Securities. Bradshaw was accused of concentrating large portions of an elderly customer’s portfolio into risky oil and gas investments. Allegedly, by 2014, Bradshaw had concentrated over 100% of the client’s account into three oil and gas investments: CVR Partners, LP, Kinder Morgan, and Legacy Reserves LP. Due to the losses in oil and gas stocks, the customer suffered over $160,000 in losses to her retirement savings. In all, because of his unsuitable investment recommendations, the client suffered over $250,000 in losses. Advisors such as Bradshaw have a duty to only recommend those securities that are suitable for investors. The broker must take into account the client’s age, net worth, investment objectives, and other things before recommending and selling securities. If he does not, his brokerage firm can be responsible for losses.
Bradshaw was registered with Rauscher Pierce Refsnes in Dallas, Texas from August 1985 until March 1990 and is registered with First Dallas Securities Inc. in Dallas, Texas and has been since February 1990. He has one customer dispute against him.
