Dear Forum Members,

Does anyone have Pro Se experience in arbitration - non customer related, industry only, defamation U5?

Do you know anyone who has?  May we talk with you or your referal?

Need to clear a false U5, hardship case, no employment, no money.

Now a big problem- U5 info reposted onto CRD system.

Things may get worse if U5 is not cleared.  Must move on this and quickly.

Please advise.

Thank you for your time, consideration, and assistance in this important matter.

Pro Se is like doing your taxes on your own... you get what you pay for.

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't... As a law student I would love for my first case to be against a lawyerless claimant/respondant.

Defamation is a hard issue to prove and you will need professional assistance in the discovery, arguments, and filings, IMHO... 

I would advise you spend 250-450 up front first to talk to an atty. before going it alone.

Good luck to you.

Jo, you'd be surprised how expensive this stuff is, even if you removed attorney fees. Filing fees etc can be quite significant. For a sample, and education, go to Finra Awards Online, and do some homework. You'll see the costs there, and get to study cases, and their results. I have personal experience in matters of Arbitration, fyi.
