Federal False Claims and Qui Tam Attorneys
Stephen Danz & Associates has one of the most successful, skilled and
respected practices in the United States representing whistleblowers in qui tam lawsuits under both the federal and state False Claims Acts. For more than 35 years, our attorneys and partnered co-counsel offices have fought on behalf of qui tam whistleblowers across the United States. At Stephen Danz & Associates, our team of attorneys counsel-whistleblowers who wish to pursue false claims in coordination with the Department of Justice for False Claims Act violations, Securities and Exchange Commission Whistleblower Program for securities law violations, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission for false and misleading claims, and the IRS Whistleblower Office for tax fraud or underpayments.
The Whistleblower Attorneys At Stephen Danz & Associates Focus On Cases For Clients Who Allege:
State False Claims Act
In addition to claims brought under the federal False Claims Act (“FCA”), each state has its own version of the FCA. Read more
Federal False Claims Act
False Claims Act (“FCA”) is the government’s main vehicle to stem out fraud against government-funded programs as well as to protect whistleblowers who report such fraud. Read more
The United States capital markets have whistleblower programs that are administered by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”)
The Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) Whistleblower Office is the government body in charge of incentivizing employees and contractors who report entities that fail to pay taxes owed to the government. Read more
The Federal False Claims Act (“FCA”) is one of the government’s primary tools in combatting fraud and recovering billions of tax-payer dollars. Our attorneys advise employee and contractor whistleblowers on the myriad of FCA-related statutes to uncover fraud against the government.
We pride ourselves on patiently and attentively working with you, the whistleblowers, or “Qui Tam” Relators, who bring the claim on behalf of the government and are entitled to share in the government’s recuperated amount. Our firm also routinely co-counsel with many of the nation’s Qui Tam firms in representing FCA whistleblowers.
The violators – companies or individuals who made the false claims to the government or retained the government’s overpayments – may be liable to three times the government’s damages plus civil penalties for each proven false claim.
FCA is a constantly changing area of the law and is represented in many different industries. Your team of attorneys focuses on government intervention analysis and protecting individual rights against retaliation by the defrauding violators.

When seeking the advice of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney, please consider past results. In our Why Choose Our Firm page, please review the many cases our attorneys have been involved with and produced exceptional results. You may also call us at (877) 789-9707 or complete the online form at www.FederalFalseClaimsAttorneys.com/contact-us for a complimentary consultation to discuss your possible whistleblower claim, or if you suffered retaliation based on your reporting of unlawful acts at your workplace.
When you contact our office, you can be assured that our attorneys will dedicate the appropriate time to listen to your concerns and navigate the whistleblower confidentially throughout the process. In addition, our attorneys are well-versed in anti-retaliation protection laws and therefore will appropriately advise you on retaliation whether the government intervenes or declines to intervene.
Common Types of Whistleblower Lawsuits
Even if the whistleblower’s claims are unfounded, our attorneys may still find that the company was in violation of anti-retaliation provisions. Having decades of experience and resources creates the breadth that is needed for both maximizing the use of the whistleblower reward programs and knowing when and how to use whistleblower anti-retaliation protections.
Whistleblower rewards programs incentivize whistleblowers to report violations of government laws. Such reports must be meticulously made and the appropriate amount of detail must be supplied to ensure the strongest case is brought to the government.
The myriad of laws that our attorneys focus on include Medicare, Medicaid (or Medi-Cal in California), False Claims Act (“FCA”) and its Anti-Retaliation Provision 3730(h), Sarbanes-Oxley Act (“SOX”) and its Anti-Retaliation Section 806, Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank”) (Pub. L. No. 111-203, 124 Stat. 1376 (2010)), Internal Revenue Code (as enforced through the Internal Revenue Service’s Whistleblower Office Informant Claims Program), Consumer Financial Protection Act (“CFPA”), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) (as enforced by the OSHA Whistleblower Protection Program, National Defense Authorization Act (sections 827 and 828 whistleblower protections), Whistleblower Protection Act (“WPA”), California False Claims Act, and California’s Private Attorney General Act (“PAGA”).
