Steven D. Toskes, Esq.

Founding Partner


Steven D. Toskes, has focused his entire legal career on securities arbitration and litigation. Steven received his Bachelor’s degree in 1995 in Communications and Broadcast Journalism from Florida Southern College and his Juris Doctorate in 1999 from Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center.

While in his senior year in law school, unsure about what area of law he wanted to practice, Steven took a securities law course and was hooked. He’d always held an interest in the stock market and spent years discussing the market with his father as a young child. Becoming a securities arbitration attorney became a natural fit. Upon graduation from law school, Steven joined the securities law firm of Lawrence Klayman, P.A. as an associate attorney. In October 2000, Steven became a partner with the law firm of Klayman, Lazarus, & Toskes and has remained with the firm ever since. Overall, Steven enjoys being able to assist investors by returning them to their previous level of financial comfort lost through brokerage firm negligence or fraud.

In addition to representing investors, Mr. Toskes has also handled regulatory inquiries and investigations by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) and its predecessors on behalf of securities brokers and brokerage firms regarding financial advisor employment issues. Steven has also led dozens of seminars educating investors about investor rights and investment losses over the course of his career.

Steven is a lifetime member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multimillion Dollar Advocates Forums reflecting the substantial verdicts and settlements he has achieved over the years. Fewer than 1% of U.S. attorneys are members of these organizations. Steven is also listed as one of America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators. He is also a former member of the American Association for Justice formerly known as the American Trial Lawyers Association, the American Bar Association, and the Broward County Bar Association.

Mr. Toskes is admitted to practice law in Florida and the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida and has represented numerous customers in arbitrations and mediations before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and its predecessors, the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), JAMS, and state and federal court.
