“He who sues for the king as well as for himself.”

Under The Federal False Claims Act and state law counterparts, private citizens or “whistleblowers” with knowledge of fraudulent conduct being perpetrated n the government may sue on behalf of the government to recover the payments made based upon the false claims of the wrongdoers.  When the suit is filed, the government may decide to intervene and prosecute the case itself.  Regardless, if a case is successful, the private citizen or “relator” may be awarded a portion of the funds recovered by the government, as well as his or her attorneys’ fees.

Wexler Wallace is committed to seeing companies and individuals held responsible for their actions that involve fraud against the government and representing those private citizens who expose the fraud. If you believe that you have a claim as a whistleblower or information concerning fraud against the government, state or federal, contact us.
