In a whistleblower case, an individual steps forward to report the company they work for of committing fraudulent activity against the federal government. As the whistleblower, you are entitled to certain rights and protections under the False Claims Act.
The False Claims Act encourages those with knowledge of fraud against the government to come forward and report it by offering financial incentives. This means that if the government decides to pursue your claim, you are entitled to a percentage of the recovery.
The False Claims Act also provides you with legal protections from the corporation or individual you are turning in, including protection from:
This fraud can cost the government, and as a result the taxpayers, a significant amount of resources to provide important services to American citizens, and this fraudulent activity makes it even more challenging to implement important programs and services.

Attorney Bill Nettles, as the former US Attorney for South Carolina, led the state to becoming the most productive whistleblower district in the country. Mr. Nettles highly values and respects whistleblowers. With significant knowledge and experience, he can help you with your case.
