Whistleblowers

You have discovered a fraud…

Do you have a case? Do you become a whistleblower?

Do you report it internally? Do you go to government officials with the information? Report it to Law enforcement? Attorneys? The media? The internet? Where do you begin?

Working with us, you the whistleblower will know what to do, whether your information is worth bringing forward, how to move it forward and what it will mean for your life.

By knowing if you have a viable case and understanding the complicated process of successfully bringing a qui tam case, you will be able to make an informed decision of how to process your information of fraud against the government.

As a former federal investigator and the founder of an organization that assisted whistleblowers we have reviewed hundreds of potential Qui Tam cases with a majority being successful returning more than $200 million to the U.S. Treasury.  We are confident we can help shepherd your case through the Justice Department bureaucracy.

Email or call us today so that we can explore specific charges of fraud against the government.

What we do for a whistleblower:

  • We have a combined 75 years of experience working with whistleblowers.
  • Extensive experience analyzing and investigating qui tam actions, especially government contractor fraud and Medicare and other government program healthcare fraud, both as a government investigator and privately with qui tam attorneys.
  • Directed a Washington D.C. based non-profit organization for 10 years working with whistleblowers exposing fraud, waste and abuse.
  • Assisted Congressional members writing modifications to the qui tam law, including the addition of the whistleblower anti-retaliation provision, in 1986.
  • Co-authored the whistleblower’s manual Courage without Martyrdom:  A Survival Guide for Whistleblowers.
  • Worked with many whistleblowers and confidential sources in promoting their causes in hundreds of newspaper articles and on many television shows and major news networks, including CNN.
  • Need a list of services to whistleblowers.
  • Whistleblowers often get into trouble when they try to blow the whistle as an employee within a company, especially using a company’s internal reporting system.
  • Whistleblowers often find it futile trying to report fraud to government inspectors or other government representatives while having their attempts at whistleblowing compromised to the company.
  • We understand the frustrations of wanting to be a whistleblower, of rectifying a fraud situation, but not knowing how to go about it and what the risks are.  Getting guidance first from someone who understands whistleblowers and their risks can avoid significant problems later.
One of the biggest problems whistleblowers and potential relators have is when they try to tackle the gathering of evidence.
Whistleblowing, picking an attorney and putting together a qui tam lawsuit without experienced help from professionals who have done it before can be a waste of time and energy.
  • Many good cases get compromised before they are even filed or an attorney retained because the relator understandably does not know how to get the information out while staying anonymous during the evidence collection process and protecting their job. We know how to guide the potential relator before they make errors that can lead to failure in filing a case or publicly exposing the fraud.
  • Once a potential relator has the evidence, they often do not know how to put it in a form for an attorney to understand.
  • Often a potential relator does not realize the extent of their fraud or knows about other fraud that is larger and more provable than their initial information.
  • Whistleblowers and potential relators often get into trouble by not knowing who to trust and divulging information to seemingly sympathetic parties who really plan to use the information against them.
  • Whistleblowers often get into trouble when they try to blow the whistle as an employee within a company, especially using a company’s internal reporting system.
  • Whistleblowers try to report fraud to government inspectors or other government representatives, but do not realize that the bureaucracy will often willingly or unwillingly inform the company about the charges and investigation. This can cause the company to figure out where the information is coming from and start the cover-up before the government can successfully investigate and start the retaliation process against the whistleblower.

Qui tam has been, and continues to be, a very effective and successful tool in combating government procurement and program fraud. Bolstered by amendments passed by Congress in 1986, this law has armed private citizens, who have independent and direct knowledge of fraud, with a weapon to prosecute government contractors, and others who are defrauding the Government, and share in the recovery.
