Fitapelli Kurta is interested in hearing from investors who have disputes regarding Mr. Gatlin (CRD# 2202955).

David Gatlin has spent 18 years in the securities industry and was most recently registered with Next Financial Group in Bay Minette, Alabama (2014-2017).

According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received one unsatisfied civil judgment or lien and two customer complaints that were closed or denied.

In December 2017 a customer alleged David Gatlin, while employed at Next Financial Group, misled her in connection with the sale of a variable annuity by guaranteeing a 5% annualized rate of return regardless of the investment allegation, and representing that her money would be accessible with no penalties at age 59 and a half. The customer sought $48,000 in damages in the complaint, which was closed with no action taken.

In 2016 the Blakely Plantation Property Owners Association filed a civil judgment or lien totaling $5,871.28 against him. The judgment or lien remains outstanding.

In 2013 a customer alleged David Gatlin, while employed at Securities America, executed unauthorized trades and made unsuitable investment recommendations. The customer sought unspecified damages in the complaint, which was denied.
