CHOOSE A LAWYER WISELY
As part of your decisionmaking process, you should look carefully for a lawyer to represent you. An experienced whistleblower lawyer can make the difference between a successful case and one that is ‘dead on arrival.’ Make sure that you are comfortable with the lawyer you select. Filing and concluding a whistleblower case is a lengthy process and you will likely be ‘living’ with your lawyer for years to come.
As a result, choosing a lawyer may be the most important decision you make in pursuing a False Claims Act case or an action under an agency whistleblower program. Kreindler & Associates is one of a small number of law firms that handle exclusively False Claims Act and whistleblower matters. Because the process of filing and successfully resolving a whistleblower case is so completely different than the process used for run-of-the-mill civil actions, make sure that your attorney knows what he or she is talking about and has handled this type of case many times in the past.
Of equal importance, make sure that you like and trust the attorney you select. Whistleblower cases take years to resolve. That is a long time to work with someone whom you do not like or who does not keep you informed of what is going on. Make sure that your attorney has your interests at heart and cares about your well being.
When looking for a lawyer, don’t be afraid to shop around. Even if the first lawyer to whom you speak is the best lawyer for you, speaking to other attorneys will reinforce that conclusion.
At Kreindler & Associates, we encourage you to speak with other potential attorneys because an informed client is the best client. We aim to provide an unparalleled level of service, support and legal assistance for our clients and are happy to have our efforts measured against our competitors. We think you’ll agree that any comparison favors Kreindler & Associates.
