Mitchell R. Kreindler
We pride ourselves on providing outstanding support to our whistleblower clients.
For more than twenty years, Mitch has devoted his law practice exclusively to representing whistleblowers, primarily in qui tam suits under the False Claims Act. Mitch is a principal in Kreindler & Associates, the law firm he established in 2000 in the Philadelphia area but relocated to Houston the following year. From 1998 to 2000, Mitch headed the False Claims Act practice at Phebus & Winkelmann, a Pennsylvania and Illinois litigation boutique. From 1994 to 1997, Mitch worked in Washington at Phillips & Cohen, whose practice is devoted exclusively to bringing whistleblower cases. Mitch also was associated with Wiley, Rein & Fielding in Washington, where he handled a variety of complex litigation matters, and he began his career in the Washington office of Philadelphia-based Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis.
Mitch is currently licensed to practice in Texas and previously was licensed in good standing to practice in Pennsylvania (1997-2009), Maryland (1987-2004) and the District of Columbia (1988-2005). At the federal level, Mitch is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, U.S. Courts of Appeals for the District of Columbia, Fourth and Fifth Circuits, and District Courts in the District of Columbia, District of Colorado, District of Maryland, Eastern District of Pennsylvania and Southern, Eastern and Western Districts of Texas. When practicing in other courts, Mitch routinely obtains admission pursuant to the court’s pro hac vice requirements.
Mitch graduated from University of Texas School of Law in 1987 where he served as associate editor of the Texas Law Review. He received his undergraduate education at the University of Texas at Austin, earning a dual BBA degree in Accounting and Business Honors in 1984. He currently serves on the UT McCombs School of Business Ethics Advisory Council, which supports exploration of the organizational pressures, psychological biases, and situational factors that cause well-intentioned people to act unethically (see http://ethicsunwrapped.utexas.edu). Mitch also has served on the Boards of Directors of the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless and the Homeless Children’s Tutorial Project, and chaired fundraising drives for the Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia in 1993 and 1994. Kreindler & Associates is a proud member and “Penny Pledger” of Taxpayers Against Fraud Education Fund, a public interest non-profit organization that promotes and maintains the integrity of whistleblower reward and private enforcement provisions in federal and state laws.
Needless to say, Mitch’s blood runs Texas burnt orange. In addition to his beloved Longhorns, he is an avid Mets fan. He spends the most important part of his life embarrassing and tormenting his college-aged daughters. Mitch continues to shock and amaze his friends by having convinced a beautiful and otherwise intelligent woman to remain married to him for over 25 years, a fact he attributes to blind luck.
