There are really as many as 25 different types of disclosures that FINRA can use to mark up your record. Traditionally, we mostly see customer dispute expungements and U5 termination expungements. However, we also handle tax lien expungements, criminal expungements, and also some regulatory expungements. Now, a vast majority of these cases we can handle through FINRA’s Dispute Resolution forum, which is an arbitration forum similar to AAA or JAMS, it’s more of a watered-down court proceeding. We represent financial advisors in all 50 states and we handle upwards of 42% of all expungement matters through FINRA.
