``No matter what we do to deter waste and fraud, whistleblowers are the key to the government finding out about it when it happens.``

- Senator Chuck Grassley, July 29, 2014

Young Law Group specializes in representing whistleblowers. Our personalized, hands-on approach to representing whistleblowers starts with the fact that firm founder, Eric L. Young, is actively involved in each case. This level of personal attention and involvement differentiates YLG from other firms. We are selective and only accept a limited number of cases. This allows us to focus our attention on the details of every case and provide exceptional, quality representation in the process. Becoming  a whistleblower can be an incredibly difficult and challenging decision. Exceptional lawyers who understand the process can help lighten your burden.


At YLG, we continue to strive to be the best.  At the outset of any potential case, YLG lawyers will consult with the prospective whistleblower to learn about the facts and circumstances compelling them to act. From there, we develop the best strategy for not only protecting the whistleblower, but also for successful resolution of the case.  YLG’s proven process is not limited to acting on the information provided by a client.  In order to present the most compelling possible case to federal and state agents, we regularly engage our own forensic accountants and investigators to ensure that all relevant evidence is collected for the benefit of our client’s case.  Our proven track record of success speaks for itself.
