A National False Claims Act Law Firm
In order to combat fraud and illegal activities, many states have opted to supplement the Federal False Claims Act with their own state-specific False Claims Act. These laws cover a wide breadth of transactions and potential instances of fraud, not limited to direct contracts or agreements with the state specifically, but also public agencies and organizations that may be defrauded.
Like the Federal False Claims Act, state False Claim Acts provide a financial incentive for whistleblowers to report companies and individuals who have cheated state agencies or programs. At the law offices of Begelman, Orlow & Melletz in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, we have built a proven reputation in the representation of whistleblowers in state and federal FCA claims across the country. Contact us if you have evidence of a company or organization defrauding state or federal government agencies.
Providing Guidance and Counsel Across the Nation
Governments across the country, from New Jersey to California, depend on private companies, independent contractors and businesses large and small to provide services and products. If you have evidence of attempts to defraud a government agency through improper billing, non-compliance or failure to provide agreed upon services or products, then you may be eligible for compensation and whistleblower protections under state and federal laws.
From local charter school fraud to federal Medicaid fraud, our attorneys at Begelman, Orlow & Melletz offer a national legal perspective for clients in states with False Claims Act protections.
