Whistleblower/Qui Tam Actions

If you, or someone you know, is an employee, former employee, or affiliated with an organization, and believe the organization is cheating or defrauding the federal government, please contact Gomez Trial Attorneys.  The United States government routinely enters into contracts with companies for services and products to assist it in running government programs.  The United States pays billions of dollars each year to these companies and trusts that their employees are acting in good faith.  Unfortunately, some of these companies cheat and defraud the government and the American taxpayer out of millions of dollars each year.

The most common areas of fraud are:

  • Medicare & Medicaid Fraud
  • Pharmaceutical Fraud
  • Defense Contractor Fraud
  • Federal Government Contractor Fraud
  • Fraudulent Loans & Grants

The most common schemes are:

  • Overcharging for products and services
  • Charging for products or services that were never delivered or provided
  • Intentionally cutting corners to provide only partial services or inferior products
  • Failing to deliver goods and services that were paid for

Through the use of a law called the “False Claims Act,” a  ”whistleblower” may bring a lawsuit on behalf of the federal government to recapture money stolen in these types of fraud.  These lawsuits are often referred to as “qui tam” lawsuits.  If the lawsuit is successful, the whistleblower is entitled to a percentage (15% to 30%) of the money the government ultimately recovers from the company.  This procedure is incredibly rewarding for the federal government, the American taxpayer, and the whistleblowers.   Since 1986, False Claims Act whistleblowers were awarded more than $2 billion dollars.

Notably, Gomez Trial Attorneys has several former federal prosecutors (Assistant United States Attorneys) that have prosecuted various types of fraud on the federal government.  They know what it takes to investigate a fraud case, litigate it, and prevail at trial in in federal court.   They will fight to ensure your rights as a whistleblower are protected and that you receive the maximum amount of value for your case.
