Whistleblowers perform a vital public service by having the courage to report fraud and misconduct. They assume great risk and need aggressive and highly skilled whistleblower attorneys to ensure that their careers are protected and that they are fully eligible to obtain all the benefits to which they are entitled under law, including monetary rewards. Their cases can be grueling, the stakes are high and the opposition is never less than formidable.
Any decision to become a whistleblower requires careful thought, however, and it is crucial that the proper steps be followed to ensure that the incentives and the protections afforded by the False Claims Act and other whistleblower laws are preserved. The team at Henderson Law, LLC is committed to counseling whistleblowers throughout this process to ensure their interests are protected.
Most of the successful whistleblower claims involve one of the following:
- Government Contracts
- Healthcare Billing Fraud
- Securities Fraud
- Income Tax Violations
Our Maryland whistleblower attorneys are dedicated to counseling individuals who have discovered a fraudulent practice, and who are committed to stopping it. The law creates a number of incentives for these people to step forward and act as "whistleblowers," particularly when the government is being defrauded or SEC rules have been violated. Rest assured we understand that clients with potential whistleblower claims often do not fully understand their options and a confidential discussion must take place to evaluate the situation.
