I was with LPL through my ex-FA, after they bought Mutual Services, who were no bargain either. I transferred everything to Vanguard, then used my massive carryover capital losses to offset any gains while converting to cash. I'm now in the process of DCA'ing into VG ETFs. I strongly recommend getting away from LPL.
