Since graduating from the University of Florida with his undergraduate, master of business administration and law degrees, Mr. Savage has fought for the rights of those injured by the negligence of others.
Mr. Savage’s mission with his legal work is to represent the ‘little guy’ who has been harmed by big companies and/or others’ negligence and he believes that every person should have skilled and experienced legal representation.
He has focused his efforts on helping those who have been harmed by big companies (and some small companies, too). In this work, Mr. Savage has sued numerous insurance companies to protect his client’s interests in various matters. Similarly he has sued many stockbrokers and brokerage firms on behalf of investors who suffered losses due to stockbroker and brokerage firm misdeeds. During his time as an attorney, Mr. Savage’s efforts have resulted in significant recoveries for his clients.
Between 2010 and 2015, Mr. Savage was on the faculty of two law schools where he founded legal clinics to provide free legal services to those who could not afford an attorney. From 2010-2013 Mr. Savage was a professor at Florida International University School of Law and then from 2013-2015 he taught at Western Michigan University Cooley Law School.
Mr. Savage was senior in-house counsel and chief compliance officer for a large regional brokerage firm where he and the two other founding members began the brokerage firm with three administrative staff and less than ten brokers. In the ensuing years, they grew the firm to more than 500 employees across most of the United States. Mr. Savage also worked for other broker-dealers in similar capacities. While in-house counsel, Mr. Savage defended customer complaints where he gained valuable experience that he now uses to help you sue stockbrokers and brokerage firms.
Mr. Savage also worked in New York City as a regulator with the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (NASD), now known as the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). During Mr. Savage’s time working as a regulator at the NASD he investigated numerous customer complaints against registered representatives and brokerage firms.
