WHO CAN BE A WHISTLEBLOWER?

Who can be a whistleblower under the False Claims Act? Anyone who is aware of fraud being committed against the federal government and is willing to bring a whistleblower lawsuit under the False Claims Act to help the government recover the money. With the help of an experienced attorney, a whistleblower can earn a substantial financial reward for bringing a valid claim and assisting the government in recovering the lost funds.

Our firm has helped whistleblowers recover millions and we can help you determine if you have a good whistleblower claim. All you need to do is take just a few minutes to call or email us for a free and completely confidential discussion about your potential claim.

What does it take to be a whistleblower and earn a reward?

  1. Are you aware of a company that has done any of the following:

    • Charged the federal government for products or services that the company did not actually provide;

    • Used money provided by the federal government in an unauthorized manner;

    • Done something that may have violated a government contract to provide goods or services (like using substandard products or unqualified employees); or

    • Failed to pay money that it owes to the federal government (like customs duties, over-payments)?

  2. Did any of the fraud occur within the last six years?

  3. Is the total amount of money the federal government lost as a result of this fraud at least $500,000?

  4. Do you have any documents or data to show that this fraud occurred? Or did you or someone you know witness the fraud in some way?

  5. Is this fraud still unknown to the government? (You generally cannot bring a whistleblower claim if the fraud was disclosed to the government by someone else or if the fraud is already public knowledge.)

If you qualify, the next step is to contact our experienced whistleblower attorneys to discuss your potential claim in complete confidence. We will give you our opinion about the merits of your claim, advise you of any potential risks or concerns, and help you file a compelling lawsuit that will persuade the government to act on your claim so that you can recover the maximum monetary award allowed under the law.


If you think you may have information relating to fraud against the federal government, contact our firm to see if you qualify under the government’s whistleblower definition.

“I am still thanking God every day for Page Pate and Jess Johnson and their belief in me”  

Page Pate and his partner Jess Johnson are top notch! Both are brilliant attorneys with incredible integrity. Page represented me in a successful 5 year long Whistleblower False Claims Act Case. Despite his busy schedule and prestigious reputation as one of the best Federal Trial Lawyers in the US, Page was unbelievably polite, respectful and took the time to listen, explain the process in its entirety and answer any questions. Page saw the potential of my case where the others didn’t. He and Jess worked very long hours preparing the claim, researching, making phone calls and attending meetings with me to assist the DOJ. I am still thanking God every day for Page Pate and Jess Johnson and their belief in me and their ability to make a $25M case out of what other expert Qui Tam attorneys saw as impossible.
