Thornton Law Firm has recovered millions of dollars lost to financial fraud, representing large pension funds, individual whistleblowers, and others fighting to recover monies lost to fraud committed by financial service companies and banks. The firm works relentlessly for its clients and makes corporations, insurance companies, and Wall Street pay for their misdeeds.
