Qui Tam Attorneys Providing Whistleblower Protection
Medicare fraud and other types of fraud against the Government are far too common in our country, particularly so in Northern Virginia and the Washington DC metro region. Someone who reports instances of fraud is known as a “whistleblower”, and often times whistleblowers will retain attorneys both to prosecute the fraud as well as to protect themselves from potential legal action.
Lawyer for Whistleblowers in Qui Tam Cases
Most whistleblower (also known as Qui Tam) cases are initially investigated by private attorneys, who first evaluate the type of fraud, review the regulations involved, and gather the necessary proof. Cases that can be proven are then filed under seal so that The Dept. of Justice can investigate the claims and decide whether to intervene.
