Whistleblower / Qui Tam Cases
If you know of fraud against the U.S. government, you may be entitled to serious compensation. Whistleblowers who report fraud committed against the government are entitled to recover a percentage of the recovery that the government makes if it can prove fraud and recover the money that has been wrongfully taken. This can result in significant rewards to the whistleblowers. We can explain what you would be entitled to if you decided to “blow the whistle” and report government fraud or abuse.
