Insider Trading Attorney
in Chicago, Illinois Serving Nationwide
Chicago Defense Lawyer For The Accused
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) takes its responsibility seriously. Any violation of insider trading can be charged as a federal felony offense. Anybody with the amount of knowledge who places a trade to purchase or sell stocks or bonds is subject to arrest. Not just corporate executives and stockbrokers — anybody. When federal prosecutors go after someone, they aren’t interested in restitution; they are seeking a conviction with serious criminal penalties.
I am attorney Phillip A. Turner. I am a former federal prosecutor and now have more than three decades of courtroom experience representing clients in felony federal charges.
Insider trading cases are complex because of the financial data, timelines and technical evidence involved. I have extensive experience analyzing data, securities transactions, bank records and other highly complex information.
From my offices in Chicago, I represent clients in federal district courts throughout Illinois and the United States. Call my office or contact me by email to arrange an initial consultation with an experienced Chicago insider trading attorney. I am available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Don’t Incriminate Yourself By Talking To SEC Investigators Or A Prosecutor
Felony insider stock trading charges often come down to criminal intent. What constitutes insider trading and what is simply making a sound investment based on a good stock tip? Everything you say during an initial investigation may be twisted to support the prosecution’s claim that you acted on knowledge not available to the general public. Your first priority should be to eliminate the criminal charges. The SEC may sue for restitution later, but let us make sure you don’t face a prison term for your actions.
As soon as you get the first indication that you are under investigation for an SEC violation, call me immediately.
