Advice and Guidance from a Whistleblower Act Lawyer
Whistleblowers usually risk a lot when they come forward with evidence that proves fraudulent use of government funds. When the False Claims Act was amended in 1986 with a qui tam statute enabling ordinary citizens to sue wrongdoers on behalf of the government (and sharing in a percentage of the recovered damages), many Georgia subcontractors, employees, clinic workers, and others with evidence of misuse of government funds found themselves in need of a metro Atlanta False Claims Act Lawyer for advice and guidance.
Whistleblower protection attorney Mike Bothwell was among the first attorneys to file a False Claims Act case after the 1986 amendments to the False Claims Act revitalized the statute. He pioneered the use of the FCA to prosecute healthcare fraud by filing one of the first Medicare FCA cases – now widely regarded as a “garden-variety” FCA case.
