I am a shareholder at Halling Cayo, S.C., a Milwaukee, Wisconsin law firm. For over 25 years, I have been representing individuals in their disputes with the securities industry.

I am submitting this comment to provide the Securities and Exchange Commission with my view on FINRAs proposed amendment to FINRA Rule 12403 of the Code of Arbitration.

I strongly support the proposed revision to the FINRA Code of Arbitration Procedure to make the all-public panel option the default. This Rule change will help protect investors with arbitration claims.

I urge the Commission to approve this rule.

Thank you.
