When You Blow The Whistle, We Will Protect You
The powers that be often feel as if they can get away with anything. Fraud, corruption and other lawbreaking can go on undetected for years until a company employee has had enough and blows the whistle.
At Christopher Smith Trial Group, our Chicago whistleblower lawyers protect the individuals willing to stand up and put a stop to illegal corporate activities. We provide confidential guidance through these complex matters to clients across Cook County and northern Illinois.
Our whistleblower clients can be awarded 10 percent to 30 percent of the amount recovered by the government.
What Is Qui Tam Or A False Claims Act Case?
Qui Tam and False Claims Act cases are other names by which whistleblower cases are known. State and federal law protects employees who blow the whistle on illegal employer activities, but far too often the laws are simply ignored. We can help you bring attention to wrongdoing, and we will fight to maximize compensation for your willingness to do the right thing.
Whistleblower cases can involve:
- Individual or corporate tax evasion
- False Medicaid claims or other health care claims
- Defense contractor fraud
- Securities fraud
- Sexual harassment
- Workplace safety and OSHA violations
- Other instances in which an employer is committing fraud
Our skilled attorneys also represent clients who suffer retaliation in the workplace, including being fired from their job, for speaking out against discrimination or sexual harassment. Our lawyers are known for effective advocacy in civil rights cases that include abuse of prisoners’ rights and instances of police misconduct.
They will put their knowledge and decades of experience to work for you when you are ready to blow the whistle.
