The Importance Of Choosing An Attorney With Experience and Results
When information is properly reported with the assistance of experienced counsel, whistleblowers can potentially receive a significant reward if their claims result in a monetary recovery by the government. Whistleblower laws have evolved into a complex intertwined web of federal, state, and local laws and regulations. It is therefore critical to choose a law firm that not only understands the complexities of the law, but also appreciates the unique character that most whistleblowers possess.
In addition to presenting a compelling case to attorneys at the Department of Justice, the success of a qui tam lawsuit can depend on persuading government attorneys to intervene in the matter. YLG Founder Eric Young and his team have more than two decades of experience working closely with DOJ attorneys in federal judicial districts across the country. This experience provides valuable insight into anticipating the types of cases for which the government is willing to allocate its limited resources.
YLG’s unparalleled ability to prepare and present a persuasive case to the government is just one of the ways that sets us apart from other less experienced firms that lack the breadth of experience in the representation of whistleblowers.
Deciding Whether You Want to be A Whistleblower
Blowing the whistle on fraud and misconduct is hard. YLG will help you decide if it is in your best interest to do so. A whistleblower is someone who not only recognizes when a company is engaged in fraud at the expense of the government and U.S. taxpayers, but also feels compelled to stop the misconduct by reporting it to the authorities.
With more than two decades of experience representing whistleblowers, Young Law Group attorneys recognize that whistleblowers are unique and often very different from clients in other areas of litigation. Whistleblowers tend to be intelligent, assertive and inquisitive. They are often rightfully demanding, detail oriented, and expect consistent results.
Many attorneys who lack significant experience in representing whistleblowers tend to dismiss many of their clients’ claims as “far-fetched,” “outlandish,” or based on “sour grapes.” Such misplaced and unwarranted skepticism can potentially compromise an attorney’s passion in pursuing their client’s case. When a client chooses a law firm experienced in qui tam and whistleblower law, they should feel confident that their attorneys will invest the time and attention that their case deserves.
