Several government programs are designed to protect and reward whistleblowers when they come forward with evidence of fraud, bribery, and similar illegal activities. It’s not unusual for whistleblowers to walk away with hundreds of thousands of dollars—if not millions of dollars—in exchange for their reports.
Whether you have information about fraudulent activity pertaining to a corporate employee, a private individual, or another entity, you must follow the proper channels. The Howley Law Firm has extensive experience helping whistleblowers qualify for governmental rewards and legal protections in exchange for their information. We represent clients nationwide in all of the major whistleblower programs.
Medicare and Medicaid Fraud
Private citizens can receive whistleblower rewards when they help the government recover money for false Medicare and Medicaid claims. Find out how our attorneys can assist you with the investigation and reporting procedures.
Government Contract Fraud
The government can’t always keep tabs on the money it provides for contracts and research grants. This is where whistleblowers come in. If you can prove that government money is not being spent as intended, we can help you take the necessary steps to stop the fraud and recover a reward for your efforts.
The SEC is always concerned about fraudulent schemes and false statements. You may be entitled to a substantial reward as a whistleblower for the SEC, and if you retain a qualified lawyer, you can also ensure that you stay anonymous.
When people under-report income or sales on their tax returns, the government often cannot catch them without insider information. Whistleblowers can often earn significant rewards from the IRS and state tax authorities. A dedicated attorney can give you the best possible chance.
Cruise Ship Pollution
When cruise ships and similar vessels discharge waste into the ocean, they can cause tremendous environmental harm. Crew members in this situation should contact our team, ensuring they can safely play the part of whistleblower in exchange for large rewards.
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act prohibits US companies from bribing foreign government officials in return for favors, influence, or government contracts. If you have evidence of bribes or other corrupt practices, we can help you take the necessary steps to earn whistleblower rewards, regardless of your nationality.

Whistleblower law is complex. You must follow each government program’s specific procedures and deadlines for whistleblowers in order to qualify for a reward without fear of retaliation. Our established law firm can maximize those chances with our in-depth knowledge of the process. We will make sure your report complies with the strict deadlines and complex procedural requirements.
If you have a strong case backed by evidence, we usually work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will only owe us legal fees if you collect a whistleblower reward. Contact us today to schedule a confidential consultation with a dedicated whistleblower attorney.
