Re: File No. SR-FINRA-2013-003

Dear Sir or Madam:

I am a practicing attorney in McLean, Virginia, and I have concentrated my practice over the last 10-15 years on representation of investors in FINRA arbitrations.

I write to support the proposed additional FINRA restrictions on certain individuals with ties to the industry which would not allow them to become public arbitrators. I do believe, however, that the time period which such individuals must wait to become public arbitrators after they leave the industry should be longer than two years.

Thank you for the opportunity to present my comments.
