Have you discovered fraudulent use of Georgia government education funds? Roswell government fraud lawyer Mike Bothwell at Bothwell Law Group will help you navigate the tricky waters of a False Claims Act lawsuit.
Higher education is expensive. Just like the students themselves, for-profit institutions oftentimes struggle to make ends meet and depend on federal loans and grant money to fill in the gaps. Even if well-meaning, educational workers who fraudulently misuse money received from government programs or those who falsify records for financial gain, whether for themselves or the institution itself (which is also self-serving because it ensures job security) are guilty of a serious crime. Coming forward with original evidence may be the only means to stop it.
However, whistleblowers should wisely seek counsel from a qualified and experienced Georgia whistleblower help attorney who will offer advice on how to avoid common pitfalls such as exceeding the Statute of Limitations, violating the terms of “Under Seal” confidentiality, failing to provide “original” (previously unknown) evidence, and failure to meet the “first to file” requirement. Additionally, if your evidence is not specific, your claim may be disqualified under Rule 9b.

A GA False Claims Act lawyer can help you put an end to it while protecting your rights and interests.
