Woodbury Financial Services Broker, John Maloney, Has Two Pending Customer Complaints Based on Unsuitable Investment Recommendations

The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against John Maloney, a Financial Advisor at Woodbury Financial Services in Morristown, New Jersey.  John Maloney has been in the securities industry since 1981 and previously worked at Edward Jones until 2016.

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on November 16, 2017, a customer filed a complaint against John Maloney, alleging “misrepresentation, suitability, breach of fiduciary duty…”  The complaint remains pending.

In addition, over the last several years, several other customers have filed complaints against John Maloney, alleging sales practice violations, including the following:

  • September 2017—Customer alleged “suitability of investment in first eye stock.” Alleged damages are $329,523 and the matter remains pending.
  • August 2016—“Claimants allege Mr. Maloney’s recommendations to purchase individual equities were unsuitable.” The matter was settled for $132,500.
  • July 2002—Customer alleged “the number of trades increased and she would not know transactions occurred until after receipt.” This is referred to as churning and unauthorized trading, two prohibited practices.  The matter was settled for $150,000.

Lastly, in 2016, John Maloney was terminated by Edward Jones for failure to “adhere to the firm’s policy regarding suitability of recommendations.”
