Do I need a Lawyer for my whistleblower case?

On Behalf of | Apr 13, 2018 | Firm News

Potential clients often describe fraud that could form the basis for a False Claims Act (also known as Qui Tam) case. When you wish to bring a case as a whistleblower under the federal False Claims Act, you must have an attorney represent you. Not only does it make good sense because the False Claims statute contains a lot of procedural requirements, that, if you take a misstep, you may lose all of your entitlement to a share of the recovery. The statute also mandates that you proceed with a lawyer. In our practice, we’ve found that the more our clients and we are able to assist the government lawyers, the better off everybody is, from the government lawyers, to our clients, to us. Due to the Government’s limited resources, streamlining their investigation is extremely helpful. Further, experience in these cases counts. It is very important to understand your lawyer’s whistleblower experience and her reputation with the government lawyers. If the lawyer lacks experience the perils of that inexperience can be significant, even fatal to your case. Please contact us if you wish to discuss your case with an experienced whislteblower attorney.
