False Claims Whistleblower Cases
Over ninety percent of all government recoveries for false claims made to the government for payments come from cases initiated by whistleblowers. Those whistleblower cases are brought under the False Claims Act, which allows private persons (known as “relators” similar to “whistleblowers”) to file a lawsuit against individuals, businesses and other entities that have directly or indirectly defrauded the federal government. Over the last two decades, the government has recovered over $56 billion from such cases, and whistleblowers have received hundreds of millions in rewards every year for their efforts.
The California, San Francisco and Marin County whistleblower attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. represent relators/whistleblowers in false claims of all varieties including product manufacturers, contractors and healthcare and pharmaceutical cases. We also handle whistleblower cases before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regarding tax avoidance schemes and before the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in securities and investment fraud cases. If you have credible information for a false claims whistleblower case or any other whistleblower case in San Francisco, Marin County or elsewhere in California, call us today at (415)441-8669 and we can help.
In order to pursue a false claims case, you need hard evidence of the wrongdoing, a mere suspicion is never enough. If you have that kind of evidence, do not just pick up the phone or visit the relevant government agency to notify them of the fraud and share your data. If you do that, you will jeopardize your chances for a reward. Instead, call qualified legal counsel such as the false claims whistleblower attorneys at Evans Law Firm, to pursue your case. Our attorneys know how best to marshal your evidence and draft your complaint and litigate your case in accordance with all procedural requirements. Our attorneys have experience litigating false claims cases through the federal court system up to the Supreme Court.
Whistleblower cases are lengthy and complicated, but the rewards can be very substantial. False Claims Act cases and other whistleblower cases such as for tax avoidance or securities fraud may result in awards as high as 15-30% of the amount the government recovers as a result of your information. The law may also protect you if your employer retaliates against you for your whistleblowing and attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. can represent you in any action for illegal retaliation by your employer against you. It is essential that you contact counsel promptly if you have information regarding false claims as the False Claims Act contains a statute of limitations and calculation of the applicable limitations period is complex and should be done with the advice of experienced whistleblower/qui tam counsel.
