San Francisco Qui Tam Lawsuit Attorneys

All taxpayers pay a price for the billions of dollars the federal government loses to fraud each year. But employees who report an employer's wrongdoing often pay the ultimate price — termination, transfer, demotion or other retaliation. The federal False Claims Act provides both protection and a monetary incentive for exposing fraud.

The Armstrong Law Firm has helped California employees come forward under the False Claims Act to report that an employer is defrauding the government. We help those employees win compensation in qui tam lawsuits for the risk and the sacrifice.

Contact us today if you have information about an employer's fraud, criminal activity or willful regulatory violations.

False Claims Act Lawsuits

A qui tam action is a lawsuit under the False Claims Act that allows whistleblowers to share in any money that federal agencies recover as a result of investigating and prosecuting fraudulence. The employee is entitled to a percentage of money recovered through criminal fines or civil fraud litigation against an employer who is defrauding the federal or state government. Depending on the scope of the case and value of the whistleblower's information, the employee's share may be as much as 15 to 20 percent of the government's recovery.

Typically, the employee has left the company or will not be welcomed back. He or she may be effectively blacklisted from that industry. A qui tam award is a reward for doing the right thing and a recognition of the adverse impact on the whistleblower's finances and future employability.

We represent realtors (whistleblowers) reporting abuses in any industry such as:

  • Medical companies defrauding Medicare and Medicaid
  • Pharmaceutical companies overcharging the government
  • Military defense contractors bilking the Department of Defense
