Plano Attorneys Who Are Dedicated To Protecting The Rights Of Whistleblowers
In order to catch and penalize the intentional misuse or theft of funds and finances, the federal government generally relies on the actions and honesty of honest people and employees. In order to encourage federal employees to speak up about the financial misuse or fraud carried out by coworkers and supervisors, the federal False Claims Act was established. Through this act, whistleblowers who play an instrumental role in the government’s recovery of stolen or misused funds can receive an award equal to 15% of the amount recovered, sometimes up to 30%.
Acting as a whistleblower within a federal organization can be intimidating, as well as complicated. Make certain you know what to do and how to protect yourself from unjust retaliation by working with Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC, and our whistleblower attorneys in Plano. We can provide you with sound legal guidance, protection from retaliation and representation in court, if necessary.

Qui Tam Cases And Internal Fraud
Whenever fraud strips the federal government of finances, it creates the opportunity for a whistleblower to notify authoritative parties and seek compensation through a qui tam case. Our Plano qui tam attorneys can assist with cases involving:
- Health care fraud
- Tax fraud
- Securities fraud
- Government contractor fraud
Keep in mind that a qui tam case can be filed against any individual or company. The fraud that effectively robs the federal government of funds does not need to be internally committed. That is to say, you do not need to necessarily be a whistleblower to report financial fraud that is harming the government. You may begin a qui tam case by “whistleblowing” for the actions of a separate department or third party. Indeed, a majority of qui tam cases involve health care fraud, in which a health care provider reports another who is creating inflated billing schedules to secure more payments.
