Whistle Blower 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.

As a Litigation Specialist with PRMS, Inc., I retained Kevin to represent a psychiatrist in a difficult medical malpractice case. Kevin obtained a defense verdict in behalf of the doctor. Kevin is a no-nonsense, hard-nosed and savvy attorney whom plaintiff attorneys would prefer not to go up against-a guy who likes to try cases and just what you're looking for in a defense attorney. Kevin has obtained several other great outcomes for me. He is my go-to attorney for all cases in his neck of the woods and I highly recommend him without reservation.
