I love providing legal representation to investors whose rights have been violated, and holding corporate defendants accountable for their actions.

Overview

Steve Pepich is a partner in Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP’s San Diego office.

He was also a member of the plaintiffs’ trial team in Newman v.
