When you have a FINRA arbitration case, it can be confusing if you are not familiar with the process. Since arbitration differs from a traditional court hearing, you need an attorney on your side who not only understands the FINRA arbitration process, but who has also helped clients obtain favorable outcomes. If you have an upcoming FINRA case, here are some ways arbitration can help turn the tide in your favor.

If you find yourself involved in a court hearing, it will almost certainly be a matter of public record. However, an arbitration hearing is far more confidential, with the only information available publicly being that which is posted on the FINRA Arbitration Awards online database.
