  • Who We Are

    Founded in 2017 by Leila Shaver, My RIA Lawyer was created to help independent investment firms ensure their compliancy with state and federal regulations and save hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential penalties. Every financial services firm in this country is required to follow specific standards and filings yet most do not – or they become compliant too late, and that’s an expensive mistake to make. Whether it’s expungement, regulatory defense, private fund services, arbitration – any compliance or legal issue - we’re the experts! And we’re a high-touch law office that insists on addressing our client’s needs with a customized and tailor made solution with a heavy emphasis on details.
