Top Houston Area FINRA Lawyer

We fight for our clients. We listen to you and help you get what you deserve. We have helped our clients get paid for all sorts of damages including damages related to wrongful discharge, unpaid overtime hours, retaliation, disability discrimination, violation of medical leave (FMLA) rights, workers compensation, and harassment... the list could go on and on. We make a living by fighting for our clients. We don't get paid anything unless we win. We won't back down against your current or former employer either. Let us fight for you. Like all of our other clients, you will be very happy you did. You can see what others are saying about us further down. Long story short: every single client review we have gives us 5 out of 5 stars. Not many of them. Not most of them. Every. Single. One.

We can represent you for any U5 and U4 actions including expungement and defamation. For example, sometimes a former employer or client will make false statements about you on a U5 or U4. These false statements can be devastating to your career and completely eliminate any ability you might have to obtain a new job. Indeed, you could be completely prevented from ever working in the industry again. These types of untrue statements need to be expunged from your U5 or U4 so that others cannot see them. The process is simple, I simply draft a claim for expungement and file it with FINRA to start the process of clearing your U5 or U4. Don't sit back and assume you have no ability to fight this type of improper behavior by your employer. Let me help you get your record cleared through a full expungement.

Often times, particularly with U5s filed by former employers, there are other issues in the background that need to also be addressed legally. For example, an employee may complain about unpaid overtime or racial discrimination, and then immediately find him or herself fired for doing so and then false claims made on their U5. We fight this unfair and illegal practice while also seeking full expungement of the U5 or U4. Some of the claims we handle in conjunction with U5 or U4 expungement are:

  • Wrongful Termination and Discharge
  • Race & National Origin Discrimination
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Retaliation - where an employer targets an employee for reporting misconduct or making various requests such as requesting to not work with a known discriminator
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) - discrimination, retaliation, and failure to provide reasonable accommodations
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) - refusal to provide medical leave, interference with medical leave, and retaliation
  • Workers' Compensation - workplace injury and related discrimination and retaliation
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) - failure to pay overtime wages and minimum wage
  • Gender Discrimination
  • Pregnancy Discrimination
  • Age Discrimination
  • Religious Discrimination
  • Hostile Work Environment
  • Non-compete and Non-disclosure Agreements

What Others Are Saying

Clayton is a go getter. He spent a considerable amount of time researching my case and discussing it with me before he was hired. His communication was excellent and he always responded the same day when I called. Even if that meant calling me after hours from home. I would recommend him to anyone that has an employment law situation requiring representation. Thanks to his research and hard work my ex employer had no choice but to settle my claim.
I knew in my heart that I was severely wronged. Desperately, I searched for an attorney who would listen to me, my plea and restore some peace and normalcy in my life and that of my family's. After even trying several organizations and being turned away, my hope was growing so dim. Then came the response from Mr. Craighead. After I explained my plight, he "stepped up to the plate" after agreeing with me that in fact, I had been "wronged." I can say from personal experiences that there are good attorneys (and not so good ones). But with Mr. Craighead, I can say that the 5 stars in this rating does not do him justice! For me, he surpasses excellence. He kept me abreast of all matters as they occurred in my case timely and answered all questions timely, sometimes it even surprised me! Ethics! That is what he possesses as well as intelligence! Therefore, in MY opinion, it is VERY rare to have an attorney these days, not only "listen" to you, the client, but "understand" all the confusion and pain that comes with being wronged. Mr. Craighead is in one word - stupendous - and when ANYONE asks me who I HIGHLY recommend for a GREAT attorney- two words will ALWAYS come to mind - Clayton Craighead!
Clayton Craighead is a go getter and a fighter. If you ever have a problem you will need an attorney who has those qualities. Don't settle for less, call him today.
