Whistleblower Law

“Whistleblower Law” 

We pursue False Claims Act (FCA)’s “qui tam” or “whistleblower” cases for people who are aware of fraud against the government.  The FCA also contains an anti-retaliation provision that protects whistleblowers.  If you have been retaliated against for opposing fraud against the government, the FCA may be able to stop the fraud and protect your job or get it back for you.  Smith Sovik attorneys are experienced in filing False Claims Act lawsuits and working closely with the U.S. Department of Justice, which investigates these whistleblower claims.
