M. Tyler Reynolds

Mason is an excellent resource for any practitioner in the securities field. Over the past few years he has consulted and been retained as an expert in various suitability and securities fraud cases for my firm and is always a pleasure to work with. Mason brings a skill set to these cases that is rivaled by few. Being a trained FINRA arbitrator and having years of experience litigating his own security cases makes him one of the most valuable assets a litigation attorney can have on their team.

Best Securities Fraud Expert in America

Mason was my designated expert in a case that involved over $100,000,000.00. It took four (4) years, and thousands of pages of evidence. His analysis was precise, and he was loyal and persistent until settlement was achieved. He has my highest recommendation. Brian C. Harrison 801 380 9080

Expert witness and litigation consultatn

I have had the pleasure of working with Mason both as an expert witness and also as a litigation strategist. I could not give him a higher recommendation in either category. His knowledge and judgment are excellent; he is responsive; he is a pleasure to work with. I have been doing securities litigation in federal and state court and now FINRA for 30+ years so I have worked with may experts and consultants. Mason is at the top of my list in his area of expertise.
