FINRA Bars Jason Nelson, Former LPL Financial Broker for Non-Cooperation

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) recently barred Jason Nelson (CRD No. 4824535) from the industry for refusing to cooperate in FINRA’s Rule 8210 inquiry.

According to the Letter of Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent (“AWC”), Jason Nelson refused to provide on-the-record testimony requested by FINRA. FINRA stated that Nelson’s former member firm LPL Financial LLC had terminated his employment and filed a Form U-5 indicating that he misrepresented customer financial information to the firm in connection with annuity purchases.

FINRA Rule 8210 requires associated persons to “provide information orally, in writing, or electronically and to testify at a location specified by FINRA staff, under oath or affirmation with respect to any matter involved in the investigation, complaint, examination or proceeding.”

According to FINRA’s BrokerCheck, Jason had been with LPL Financial in Tremont for five years, from 01/17/2013 until 01/19/2018 and was terminated by LPL in January 2018, following allegations that he misrepresented client financial information to the firm in connection with annuity purchases.

I learned two important things working with Eccleston Law. First, I made a friend and ally with Jim and Steph for life. Secondly, and this is a crucial life lesson - if you need counsel, then seek out the very best. Jim was referred to me by a most trusted source. I've never had to hire an attorney for anything. Now, I know the value of hiring an important partner. Meticulous, thorough and detailed in preparation is the best way to describe Jim. Brilliant too, I might add. Bottom line, I would highly highly recommend Jim and Stephany for your legal needs. One of the best life decisions I've ever made.
