Federal Whistleblower Cases We Handle

We handle all types of federal whistleblower cases in Dallas, throughout Texas, and nationwide. Regardless of the type of wrongdoing you need to disclose (or think you might need to disclose) to the federal government, we can help you feel confident as you move forward. Examples of the types of federal whistleblower cases we handle include:

Abuse of Authority and Corruption By Federal Personnel

If you are aware of corruption within the federal government, it is important that you speak with a Dallas whistleblower attorney about coming forward. Exposing abuses of authority, solicitation and acceptance of bribes, nepotism, and other forms of wrongdoing is critical for preserving trust and confidence in the federal government.

Defense Contract Fraud

We represent employees and subcontractors who need to blow the whistle on defense contract fraud. Fraud under federal defense contracts costs taxpayers billions of dollars annually, and the False Claims Act provides an avenue for individuals who are aware of this form of fraud to come forward in confidence.

Dodd-Frank Act Violations

Violations of the Dodd-Frank Act can expose investors and borrowers in the United States to substantial and unwarranted financial risks. Congress enacted the Dodd-Frank Act to establish accountability within the U.S. financial markets, and whistleblowers play an important role in helping federal authorities take action when necessary.

Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Testing and Marketing Fraud

Violations of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and other federal consumer protection statutes can pose substantial health and safety risks. We represent whistleblowers who have information about testing fraud (including misrepresentation of test results), fraud on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and consumer marketing fraud.

Medicare and Medicaid Fraud

Medicare and Medicaid fraud cost taxpayers billions of dollars annually. They can also present substantial health and safety risks for patients—who may receive inappropriate or unnecessary treatment or medications from providers who are seeking to bill the government. We have significant experience in the healthcare arena, and we strongly encourage you to contact us if you are aware of improper billing or coding practices.

Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) Violations

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) is another federal statute that Congress enacted to restore trust in the U.S. financial markets and protect investors from fraudulent corporate practices. If you are aware of potential SOX violations, speaking with a Dallas whistleblower attorney is the right thing to do.

Securities Fraud

Along with SOX violations, other federal securities laws violations can also leave investors facing substantial losses that they have no hope of recovering through ordinary market forces. We represent whistleblowers in Dallas who need to report fraudulent practices by public companies, private companies, investment advisory and brokerage firms, and other entities.

Tax Evasion and Tax Fraud

Tax evasion and tax fraud are responsible for a tax gap of approximately half a trillion dollars. This is more than half of the current federal deficit. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) relies on whistleblowers to come forward and help it pursue audits and investigations focused on ensuring that corporate and high-net-worth taxpayers pay what they owe.

TRICARE Fraud

Along with Medicare and Medicaid fraud, TRICARE fraud is another significant health care-related concern. If you are aware of a health care provider improperly billing TRICARE, we can help you expose the fraud and assist the government with recovering taxpayer losses.

Wrongdoing By the NSA or CIA

We also represent current and former employees of the National Security Agency (NSA) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). From uncovering nepotism and other abuses of authority to exposing violations of U.S. citizens’ privacy rights, we help NSA and CIA whistleblowers come forward—while doing what is necessary to protect them throughout the process.

Q: How Common Is It to Serve as a Federal Whistleblower?

Numerous federal whistleblowers come forward each year. Whistleblowers play a critical role in helping the federal government combat fraud, waste, and abuses of authority in the public and private sectors, and several federal agencies have whistleblower programs. These include the DOJ, IRS, CFTC, SEC, HHS OIG, and FDA, among others.

Q: How Do I Report Fraud, Waste, or Abuse to the Federal Government in Dallas?

Q: What Are the Risks of Serving as a Federal Whistleblower?

The risks of serving as a federal whistleblower are minimal—and really non-existent—in most cases. The federal government protects whistleblowers’ identities (and whistleblowers can remain anonymous in some cases), and federal law strictly prohibits whistleblower retaliation in the public and private sectors. If your employer attempts to retaliate against you in violation of federal law, your Dallas whistleblower attorney can work with the government to ensure that you remain protected.

Q: Do I Need to Hire a Dallas Whistleblower Attorney to Come Forward?

Q: Should I Contact My Employer Before I Contact the Federal Government?

No, if you believe that you have information about fraud, waste, or abuse at the company or agency where you work, you should not contact your employer before contacting the federal government.
