Whistleblowers play a critical role in exposing fraud, waste, and abuse. If you believe that you have information about corporate misconduct or an abuse of authority within a federal office or agency, it is important that you speak with a Miami whistleblower attorney about coming forward. Federal law provides strong protections for whistleblowers, and it is possible to report wrongdoing anonymously in many cases.

Our lawyers represent whistleblowers in Miami, throughout Florida, and across the United States. We have extensive experience handling complaints under the False Claims Act, Dodd-Frank Act, Sarbanes Oxley Act (SOX), and other statutes. In addition to experience in private practice, many of our lawyers previously prosecuted fraud, waste, and abuse at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), so we are well-versed not only in all aspects of whistleblower representation, but also in how the federal government works with whistleblowers to pursue civil and criminal charges.

About Our Whistleblower Representation

If you need to speak with a Miami whistleblower attorney, it is important that you make an informed decision about your legal representation. At Oberheiden P.C., we are committed to helping our clients make informed decisions; and, when you contact us, you are under no obligation to come forward and file a whistleblower complaint. Speaking with an attorney at our firm costs nothing; and, if you decide not to blow the whistle after speaking with an attorney, that is completely fine. If you need more information or more time to make your decision, we are more than happy to guide you through your decision-making process.

Here is some information about our whistleblower representation:

Who Do We Represent?

We represent whistleblowers who need to report violations of all federal statutes and regulations to all federal offices and agencies. We have the team and resources required to represent federal whistleblowers effectively, and we regularly speak with individuals in Miami and other major cities around the country who are thinking about blowing the whistle. Some examples of the types of clients we represent include:

  • CFTC Whistleblowers – We represent whistleblowers in reporting accounting violations, recordkeeping violations, fraudulent practices, and other violations to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
  • CIA and NSA Whistleblowers – We represent current and former employees and contractors of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and National Security Administration (NSA) who need to report privacy violations, government overreach, and other abuses of authority.
  • Defense Contract Whistleblowers – We represent current and former employees of defense contractors who need to report procurement fraud, billing fraud, and other violations to the DOJ or U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).
  • Dodd-Frank Whistleblowers – We assist whistleblowers with exposing violations of the Dodd-Frank Act, which Congress enacted to prevent a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis.
  • False Claims Act Whistleblowers – The False Claims Act provides protections for whistleblowers who report many forms of fraud, waste, and abuse to the federal government.
  • Federal Employee Whistleblowers – Federal employees are entitled to protections under the Whistleblower Protection Act, which are comparable to the protections afforded to employees in the private sector.
  • FDA Whistleblowers – We represent individuals who need to report companies’ fraudulent representations to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and to U.S. consumers.
  • Health Care Fraud Whistleblowers – Health care fraud is a multi-billion-dollar industry, and every year whistleblowers help the federal government hold all types of providers accountable for Medicare fraud, prescription drug fraud, and other unlawful practices.
  • IRS Whistleblowers – The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) relies heavily on citizens to come forward with information that it can use to hold corporate and high-net-worth taxpayers accountable for tax evasion and tax fraud.
  • SEC and SOX Whistleblowers – We also represent individuals who need to report investment fraud, corporate accounting fraud, and other SOX violations to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Again, these are just examples. If you believe that you may have any type of whistleblower complaint (or if you aren’t sure whether you qualify as a whistleblower), we encourage you to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with a whistleblower lawyer at Oberheiden P.C.

What Is Our Process for Representing Potential Whistleblowers?

Let’s say you are thinking about blowing the whistle in Miami. What can you expect if you move forward? Here is a quick overview of the process of working with a Miami whistleblower attorney at Oberheiden P.C.:

1. You Will Meet with a Miami Whistleblower Attorney in Complete Confidence

When you contact us, we will arrange for you to meet with one of our Miami whistleblower attorneys one-on-one. This meeting will be strictly confidential, and under no circumstances will we disclose your identity or your information except with your express approval.

2. You Will Pay Nothing Out-of-Pocket

We represent whistleblowers at no out-of-pocket cost. If you receive a whistleblower award from the government, we will receive a percentage of your award as compensation for our services. Otherwise, you owe us nothing.

3. We Will Help You Decide Whether to Blow the Whistle

When many of our clients first contact us, they are unsure of whether they should (and even whether they can) serve as a whistleblower. If you are in this situation, this is completely fine. During the initial stages of our engagement, the purpose of our representation is to help you make an informed decision about whether to come forward.

4. We Will Prepare Your Whistleblower Complaint and Communicate with the Government on Your Behalf

If you choose to come forward, we will prepare your whistleblower complaint and communicate with the government on your behalf. Your Miami whistleblower attorney will serve as your liaison throughout the process, ensuring that you remain protected throughout.

5. We Will Protect Your Identity While Working with the Government to Establish Accountability

Protecting our clients’ identities is of utmost importance. Throughout the process of working with the government, we will protect your identity (and we will help you remain completely anonymous, even to the government, if possible). We will also assist with the government’s investigation to help federal prosecutors establish accountability.

How Do You Get Started?

If you are interested in speaking with a Miami whistleblower attorney, getting started is simply a matter of scheduling a free initial consultation. Whether you call us or contact us online, we will hold your identity and all information you share in strict confidence, and we will arrange for you to meet with an attorney in person or over the phone as soon as possible.

FAQs: Working with a Miami Whistleblower Attorney

Q: Can I work with a Miami whistleblower attorney anonymously?

To ensure that we do not have any conflicts, we (and any other law firm you may choose to contact) will need to know your identity. However, we will not share your identity with anyone—including the federal government—unless you authorize us to do so. In many cases, whistleblowers can remain anonymous while working with the government through their attorneys.

Q: Will the government protect my identity if I file a whistleblower complaint?

Yes, if you disclose your identity to the government, the government will protect all of your identifying information. The federal government takes whistleblower protections very seriously, and agencies like the CFTC, DOJ, and SEC have logical and procedural safeguards in place to prevent unauthorized and inadvertent disclosures.

Q: What if I blow the whistle on my employer and it discovers my identity?

If you blow the whistle on your employer and it somehow discovers your identity, you will be protected under federal law. Whistleblower statutes prohibit employers from retaliating against employees who blow the whistle. If your employer retaliates against you in violation of federal law, you will be entitled to clear remedies—and your Miami whistleblower attorney at Oberheiden P.C. will be able to work to secure these remedies on your behalf.

Q: Are whistleblowers entitled to financial compensation from the government?

In some cases, whistleblowers are entitled to financial compensation from the government. If the information that you have in your possession makes you eligible for a whistleblower award, our attorneys can work to collect your award on your behalf. To be eligible for an award, the information you provide must lead to a successful enforcement action, and the amount of the government’s recovery must exceed the relevant statutory threshold.

Q: When should I contact a Miami whistleblower attorney?

We recommend that you contact a Miami whistleblower attorney if you believe that you have information about any form of fraud, waste, or abuse in the public or private sector. The government relies on whistleblowers to come forward, and our attorneys can help you decide what is the right thing to do.
