Marron on consumers’ side in fraud protection cases



Attorney Ron Marron’s law office specializes in consumer fraud protection.

“I do business representing people who get ripped off by stockbrokers and insurance brokers,” said Marron of his San Diego firm at 3636 Fourth Ave., Suite 202, named Investors Advocates.

Marron said there’s lots of work to be done.

“There are a lot of cases involving variable and deferred annuities and also fixed annuities,” he said. “Right now I’m working on a lot of cases involving limited partnerships.”

Financing runs in Marron’s family. He said his immigrant grandmother got wealthy investing in pharmaceutical stocks.

“I saw how the market worked for her,” he said, noting that inspired him to graduate from USC majoring in finance.

Following that, Marron interned at the California Department of Corporations working in its financial fraud department.

“After law school, I went into my own practice doing broker liability,” he said.

Much of Marron’s business comes from referrals, either other brokers or clients, “once they’ve realized there’s losses with some of these limited partnerships and structured financial products.”

Marron noted that there are a lot of scams out there — “A lot of bad investments shake out when the economy goes down.”

Lots of times, Marron said, people simply don’t adequately understand the financial product they’re invested in. A typical case he handles involves “unsuitable recommendations by brokers just trying to push whatever deals they get a bigger commission on.”

Marron works on a contingency fee basis and will review a prospective client’s paperwork for no charge.

“They can come and talk to me,” he said.
