Virginia Whistleblower Lawyer

Virginia qui tam attorney Corey Pollard helps those with knowledge of fraud against the government get a monetary reward for doing the right thing.

The modern whistleblower plays an important role in keeping Americans safe and preventing fraud and corruption. By doing the right thing, whistleblowers not only save taxpayers money but also protect the American public from unsafe consumer products and food.
Unfortunately the federal government usually does not enact or strengthen federal whistleblower laws until a crisis occurs. We have seen this time and time again, especially over the past few years. Recently, the federal government has strengthened many laws and regulations that protect employees who blow the whistle and reward whistleblowers when the information they provide leads to a monetary recovery and disclosure of illegal activities. Many state governments have followed suit with the passing of whistleblower laws.

Are you an employee who is thinking about blowing the whistle on fraud and helping keep regular Americans safe? If so, contact Virginia whistleblower lawyer and qui tam attorney Corey Pollard for a free, confidential consultation. Corey represents whistleblowers and employees in claims under the Federal False Claims Act, the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act, and other federal whistleblower laws.
