Whistleblower Law Firm Maryland

Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Whistleblower Law Firm MarylandEven though there are federal protections for people who speak up about an employer’s or organization’s wrongdoings, there is a need for a good whistleblower law firm Maryland citizens can rely on in at-will employment states such as Maryland and many of its surrounding states.

Both government and private-sector employees are supposed to be protected against employer and/or supervisor retaliation in the event that they report fraud, illegal and/or unethical activities or practices. Even when an employer or organization is blatantly doing wrong, an employee who “blows the whistle” on this may suffer from retaliation from the employer. This is one of the many reasons that people who are whistleblowers or who are thinking about becoming one, need the protection of a law firm that is experienced at successfully defending whistleblower’s rights, reputations, and financial well-beings.

At-Will Employment States

Maryland is an at-will employment state. An at-will employment state is a state in the U.S. where an employee can be dismissed by an employer without having to establish “just cause” for their termination. At-will employment is a term used in United States labor law for contractual relationships in which an employee can be dismissed by an employer for any reason and without warning, as long as the reason is not illegal.

Examples of when it is illegal to fire someone in an at-will state include but are not limited to firing someone based on their:

  • Race or ethnicity
  • Religion
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientation
  • Age
  • Country of origin

If you have been fired for being a whistleblower or are suffering from retaliation for having done this in the state of Maryland and many of the surrounding states, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a reputable whistleblower law firm Maryland whistleblowers and their families can trust.

False Claims Act

The False Claims Act (also known as the Lincoln Law) is a federal law in the United States that imposes liability on persons and companies who act with the intention to deceive others. Typically, this act imposes liability on federal contractors who defraud governmental programs. This is the federal Government’s tool for combating fraud against the government. It allows people who are not affiliated with the government to file actions on behalf of the government. These actions are often referred to as whistleblowing where the person performing them is referred to as a whistleblower (or whistle blower or whistle-blower).

When Should an Honest Person Call a Whistleblower Law Firm?

An honest person who wants to speak up about the wrongdoings of an employer or organization, may find it helpful to discuss their situation with a lawyer who is licensed to help whistleblowers in the state where the wrongdoings occurred. Even though there are many laws and regulations in place to protect employees from employer retaliation if they speak up about unethical and/or illegal practices, doing this can have negative consequences for the honest person. One way to combat and prevent these negative consequences is by having a law firm on their side that knows how to protect whistleblowers and their rights.

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.
