Bob Rex’s national securities practice is focused on the representation of investors seeking the recovery of losses due to the negligence and/or fraud of stockbrokers and stockbrokerage firms. For 30 years he has maintained an office in Boca Raton, Florida, and in 2015 he opened a second office in Austin, Texas.

He graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in accounting and obtained his law degree from the University of Florida in 1976. For six years following graduation from law school, Mr. Rex practiced tax accounting and oil and gas law as a certified public accountant with Coopers and Lybrand and also with Grant Thornton.

In the early 1980’s he was in the oil and gas business for four years, serving as vice president of legal and finance for Heritage Oil Company and Heritage in San Antonio, Texas. In 1987 he moved back to his hometown of Delray Beach and joined Dickenson Murphy Rex & Sloan where he established his practice representing investors who have lost money in the stock market, retirement or other accounts as a result of the negligence or fraud of stockbrokers and investment advisers.

Mr. Rex’s clients are comprised primarily of retirees seeking the recovery of investment and retirement funds lost as a result of negligent advice from broker firms, stockbrokers and/or investment advisers. Mr. Rex has represented hundreds of individuals, many of whom are elderly and retired, and has recovered millions of dollars in damages from stock brokerage firms nationwide. While most of his clients are in the United States, he has represented individuals from other parts of the world, including Canada, Chile, El Salvador, England, France and Mexico.

He is a member of the Florida and Texas Bar Associations and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and was voted one of Florida’s Top Lawyers by Florida Legal Elite. This honor was determined by a voting of Florida lawyers and represents the top 1.6% of Florida’s lawyers.
