How Can An Attorney Help A Whistleblower?
Discover how a dedicated lawyer can help with your lawsuit or claim
Whistleblowers who suspect wrongdoing – whether it’s waste, fraud, abuse of power or a specific threat to public health and safety – might think they don’t need a lawyer to handle their claim. Government agencies like the Justice Department and FBI routinely investigate allegations of corruption and other illegal activities. Other government entities like the Occupational Safety & Health Administration also exist to examine claims of discrimination and reprisals for exposing such wrongdoing.
But the reality is it’s often essential to have an experienced attorney on your side when dealing with complex cases. We know because our whistleblower attorneys at Brewer & Pritchard, P.C., in Houston have decades of experience handling complex legal cases. We know the situations that often arise and can result in challenging whistleblower claims. That’s why we want to work with you and protect your legal rights.
How a lawyer can help with your whistleblower case
When you have an experienced whistleblower lawyer on your side, you can make sure your lawsuit or claim receives the attention it rightfully deserves. Specifically, your attorney can:
- Explain all the legal options available to you
- Protect your anonymity as a whistleblower if possible
- Confidentially review evidence in support of your claim
- Conduct further research to gather additional evidence if necessary
- Consult with experts in their field if necessary
- Help fill out the necessary paperwork to file a whistleblower lawsuit or complaint
- Represent you in all court and legal proceedings
Your lawyer can also take legal action if you encounter retaliatory actions or punitive measures in response to filing a whistleblower lawsuit or complaint. Such actions may include:
- Wrongfully terminated
- Being personally investigated
- Being harassed at work
- Being wrongfully arrested
You have rights as a whistleblower. Don’t allow companies or individuals to intimidate you simply because you’re doing the right thing. Talk to an attorney who can help you safely take a stand and do your part to speak out against corruption and other criminal activity.
