If you are contemplating becoming a whistleblower, choosing an attorney to represent you is one of the most important decisions you will make. A strong whistleblower attorney can make all the difference between winning and losing.
Here are three things to consider in order to choose the right whistleblower attorney for your case:
- Choose someone who has previously worked on a number of whistleblower cases, either on behalf of whistleblowers or in government.
- Because there are many different types of whistleblower cases, carefully consider the type of experience the attorney has, and ask if the attorney has handled cases similar to yours.
Expertise is closely tied to experience. An experienced attorney will be able to tell you quickly if your case has the potential to interest the government. The attorney then will advise you on how to make your case stronger and improve the chances of the government taking over the case and pursuing it through a recovery.
Resources to Handle a Whistleblower Case
The law firm you select must have the resources to pursue the case over a longer period of time. Your attorney has to be ready to invest in the success of your case.
