Fitapelli Kurta is interested in hearing from investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Friedman (CRD #1101794).

According to his BrokerCheck report, Robert Friedman has received one pending customer complaint and resigned from one former employer.

In January 2017 a customer alleged Robert Friedman, while employed at Wells Fargo Advisors, “placed him in a risky portfolio” including an annuity that “he thought… was to pay income for life but it no longer has value.” The customer is seeking $200,000 in damages in the pending complaint.

In 1996 Robert Friedman was “permitted to resign” from his position at Legg Mason Wood Walker following allegations he “either permitted or instructed a sales assistant to sign [a] client’s name to firm documents, including instructions to transfer and disburse funds.”
