Jeff’s firm also handles financial fraud by banks, hedge funds and financial managers. As a lawyer, Jeff has had several major successful whistleblower cases including one against a pharmaceutical company which paid $35 million for issuing medications to patients without physician approval and then billing Medicare and another one this year involving a military contractor which paid $1.2 million to settle a false billing case in which it allocated salaries from one contract to another. He is presently lead attorney in pending cases around the country involving millions of dollars of fraud on the United States Government as well as various states under the federal and state False Claims Act. This unusual law allows individuals to bring lawsuits on behalf of the federal and state governments and to collect a percentage of what the government recovers for fraud and mis-billing.

Boston Whistleblower Lawyer
Jeff’s law firm has developed a detailed and comprehensive approach to handling whistleblower claims which increases the probability that the government will intervene in the actions as a result of the extensive review of all records, detailed and thorough analysis of the information which the whistleblower brings forward in combination with a careful analysis of appropriate legal cases and statutes to assure that the claim is viable under law. This methodology increases the probability of success and reduces the risk to the whistleblowers who come forward.
Jeff is a Boston whistleblower lawyer who has a Jurist Doctorate from Boston College and an MBA from Suffolk University and is a frequent speaker on the topic of whistleblowers in America involving healthcare and the pharmaceutical industry. In addition, Jeff has authored one book entitled Handling Federal False Claims Act (Qui Tam) Whistleblower Cases, Legal and Strategic Considerations for both the Plaintiff and Defendant’s Counsel.
