New Jersey Whistleblower Lawyers
The New Jersey False Claims Act went into effect in 2008 and imposes liability for individuals and companies who present a false claim for goods or services to a New Jersey agency, or otherwise defraud the state. These laws exist to supplement existing federal legislation, and often provides more coverage and can increase the damages you receive as a whistleblower.
At the Cherry Hill, New Jersey, law office of Begelman & Orlow, P. C. our attorneys are experienced whistleblower claim litigators that have made Qui Tam and false claims cases a cornerstone of our practice. We are thorough and unwavering advocates in protecting our clients’ rights under federal and state law.
Protecting New Jersey Whistleblowers
One of the first concerns people have about reporting a state or federal false claims case is the possibility for retaliation. It is important to know that our attorneys are highly experienced at protecting the rights of clients, and that both state and federal laws protect whistleblowers from being retaliated against.
Employers or other entities in non-compliance with those protections can face further penalties under statutes such as New Jersey’s Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA), which may also further increase your financial award.
The Legal Resources to Fully Pursue Your Compensation

We offer informed guidance that can explore whether you claim is best filed as a state false claim, a federal case or even a state claim piggybacked on a federal FCA filing.
