Qui Tam Lawyers

Qui tam comes from a Latin phrase qui tam pro domino rege quam prose ipso in hac parte sequitur. It (roughly) means, “[He] who sues in this matter for the king as well as for himself.” A qui tam action is a lawsuit that is brought by a private citizen against an individual or entity such as a company or corporation, that has cheated or committed fraud towards the government. If an individual or entity violates the law while performing a contract with the government, a person who discovers this may be able to file a lawsuit with the help of Washington, DC qui tam lawyers in order to try to recover losses caused by this government fraud.

Qui Tam Lawyers Compared to Whistleblower Lawyers

A whistleblower is someone who calls out an employer or other powerful entity for doing wrong. In this sense, even though a whistleblower doesn’t actually blow a whistle, their actions create a somewhat similar situation as one to a referee in a sports game blowing a whistle when a player does something wrong, or to a law enforcement officer blowing a whistle to try to aid in the stopping of a crime they are witnessing.

A qui tam is a type of litigation that involves a whistleblower that files a lawsuit against an individual or corporation that has cheated a government agency or entity and/or fraudulently misappropriated government funds. When an individual files a qui tam claim with the help of Washington, DC lawyers, they are blowing the whistle on another party for doing wrong, specifically toward the government.

A whistleblower is a broad term that encompasses qui tam actions. Whistleblower refers to someone who is calling out an employer or other powerful entity for doing something wrong. While the term whistleblower can be referring to someone making a qui tam claim, they can be calling out entities that have wronged a party or parties that have nothing to do with the government.

Rights of Qui Tam Whistleblowers

If you have blown the whistle on a party that has specifically been cheating the government or committing fraud towards it, you may find it valuable to discuss your situation with Washington, DC lawyers that are experienced with successfully protecting the rights of qui tam whistleblowers.

When a qui tam whistleblower’s actions become known to others, they often have to deal with harassment, discrimination, retaliation, demotion and/or dismissal, to name just a few of the common challenges they face.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
