NYC Government Fraud Lawyer

Government Fraud Attorneys in New York City

Representing People in Claims Against the Government

Few things are as frightening as the thought of going against long-established government practices and organizations, especially when the government organization is your employer. That is why whistleblowers are so important. They are heroes of the people who uncover government fraud, an unlawful practice that hurts all citizens and taxpayers. Whistleblowers help catch wrongdoers who steal your tax dollars by filing false claims for government benefits and other funds.

Whistleblowers & Qui Tam Lawsuits

Whistleblowers file hundreds of “qui tam” cases every year. These cases are those filed by ordinary citizens on behalf of the U.S. government to recover moneys fraudulently acquired by local government entities, individuals, and businesses. Understanding that it cannot possibly catch all cases of government fraud, the U.S. government offers an incentive to help uncover fraudulent acts. Ordinary citizens can step forward and help recover billions for the federal government and be rewarded 15-30% of the funds recovered.

States & Municipalities with False Claims Laws

Almost half of all states have “false claims” acts similar to those enacted by the federal government. Some states even allow “qui tam” cases to be brought on behalf of private insurance companies. Some cities have enacted these laws as well. 

States and municipalities that allow “qui tam” cases include:

  • California
  • Delaware
