What You Should Know About the False Claims Act
The law governing whistleblower claims is known as theFalse Claims Act. It was originally created during the Civil War to try to prevent government suppliers from abusing their financial relationship with the army.
The law has been expanded over the years and now combats health care fraud and identifies abuse in certain industries like construction, housing and energy and prohibits some of the following:
- Failure of delivering money or property that is to be used by the government
- Scheming to submit a false claim
- Knowingly using or making a false statement or record that is on the same terms as a false claim
- Knowingly causing or presenting a false claim for payment or approval
- Knowingly receiving property from someone who does not have the right to sell the property
- Being involved in the delivery of a document that confirms obtaining government property without recognizing if the information is correct
What a Whistleblower Lawyer Can Do for You
Coming forward with an accusation of illegal activity in the workplace can put you at risk of retaliation. Our firm understands this risk and are prepared to make your safety a priority. That is why your consultation with us is absolutely confidential and 100 percent free.
We understand how complex whistleblower cases can be and how difficult it is to prove that an employer violated the False Claims Act. Our firm has the knowledge and resources to handle these cases. We are well-versed in this law as well as other state and federal laws that may apply to your particular circumstances.
If we determine that you have a valid case, a detailed investigation will be conducted and supportive evidence will be gathered in order to build a strong case for compensation.
It may be likely that the government will intervene in the case. This may be beneficial as cases with government intervention often have a high success rate. If the government gets involved, their attorneys will take control of the case and may choose to either pursue and prosecute the case, dismiss the case or settle it.
We understand that the nature of this situation is highly sensitive and confidentiality is key. That is why it is important to have a legal team on your side to guide you through the entire process.

If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
Liz was great
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
I would like to send special thanks to Phillips Law Group for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Best Law Firm here in the Valley.
