Prospera Financial Services Client Alleges Breach Of Fiduciary Duty By Andrew Pravlik

Evidently, a client of Prospera Financial Services lodged a dispute about Andrew Pravlik in June 2020. First of all, the client claimed that Pravlik breached a fiduciary duty. Secondly, the broker supposedly misrepresented information on DPPs or LPs. Thirdly, the client contended that Pravlik’s recommendations were unsuitable.
