Who Is James “Eddie” Lyons? | Shreveport Golfer Turned Broker

Eddie Lyons Lawsuits

James Edward Lyons, better known as Eddie, was a Shreveport broker for Raymond James & Associates in Shreveport, LA.   Eddie is well-known in the Shreveport-Bosier City golf community due to his past amateur golfing successes. However, he is now gaining infamy in the area for the recent allegations of  losing Millions of Dollars for investors through his unauthorized and reckless securities trading.  Although Eddie is not named in the “Statement of Claims” filed with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), it is alleged that his wealth management firm, Raymond James & Associates and his Shreveport branch manager failed to supervise Eddie.

So far, nearly 30 investors have asked a FINRA Arbitration Panel to hear their claims.  Unfortunately, these investors range from the elderly to charitable organizations that feed the homeless. Even worse, these investors are estimating their losses at around $5 Million. The $5 Million claim stems from the amount the investors expected to realize from the management of a conservative investment portfolio by Eddie Lyons.

The investor allegations are tied to Eddie Lyons‘ investments in risky oil and gas trusts and partnerships. Additionally, these investors are claiming that Lyons was initiating investments and trades without their knowledge.  If you believe that you were a victim to broker misconduct, investment fraud or unauthorized trading, contact us by filling out a Contact Form or by calling 216-242-6184 for a FREE Consultation on your potential Eddie Lyons Lawsuit.

FAQ

Yes. Please use our contact form to request a free case evaluation. Tell us your story, and one of our lawyers will respond to tell you if we think we can help.

We work almost all of our cases under contingent fee arrangements. If we take your case under a contingent fee arrangement, you won’t owe our firm any legal fees unless we are able to recover money for you.

Our contingent fee is either based on a percentage of the amount we recover for our client (which generally ranges from one-third of the recovery up to 40%) or the amount of work we perform on your case, multiplied by our current hourly rates. The percentage we will charge in your case depends on the type of case, when your case resolves, and whether you request us to advance litigation costs (including filing fees, postage, expert witness fees, etc.). Generally, the percentage is higher if we are advancing litigation costs and your case does not resolve early.

In most litigation matters, it is extremely difficult – practically impossible – to predict how long or how many hours will it take to resolve a particular case. Every case is different in terms of the complexity. For instance, a simple breach of contract matter is likely to get resolved significantly faster than a complicated lawsuit involving multiple parties, numerous claims, complex issues of law, and extensive discovery. The other parties’ cooperation, the attorneys’ schedules, as well as the number of other cases on the court’s docket are also the factors.
