Since the Civil War, whistleblowers have been leading the charge in the fight against government fraud. Let us show you the way.
For whistleblowers, the good judgment of his or her attorney is critical to a successful outcome. But judgment in the unique context of a False Claims Act case can only be obtained through long experience in handling a wide variety of False Claims Act cases.
For eight years, Ben Vernia investigated, intervened and litigated whistleblower cases for the U.S. Department of Justice. From 1994 to 2002, Ben was a Trial Attorney in the Fraud Section of the Civil Division, which handles every major qui tam case. As a Trial Attorney, he led investigations in dozens of qui tam suits. Most of these matters involved parallel criminal and civil proceedings; all were complex cases requiring the rapid assessment of both a difficult factual terrain and the key legal obligations imposed by regulations or government contracts.
The Vernia Law Firm has handled cutting-edge, bet-the-company investigations and settlements, representing both whistleblowers and defendants in False Claims Act cases. He brings to clients a first-hand knowledge of the federal investigative process, and experience on dozens of criminal, civil and parallel cases.
