Experienced In Winning New York State False Claims Act Cases

Qui tam cases can be filed in state or federal court, depending on the circumstances and the laws that apply to each case.

New York state has its own laws governing fraud cases. The New York False Claims Act enables individuals who have evidence of fraud against the state or its agencies, county or its agencies, city or its agencies, or school district in the state to file a claim.

The New York State False Claims Act is part of an effort to stem the corruption that has robbed taxpayers over the years. Because of the state's responsibility to guard against fraud, the state may award three times the dollar amount of fraud in the case.

Unlike most states, New York also allows for recovery for tax fraud committed against New York State.

Rewards And Retaliation

In addition to awarding substantial sums to whistleblowers, the law protects them from being retaliated against by employers. The lawyers at Fischer Legal Group represent clients in both whistleblower and retaliation cases occurring in New York.

Fischer Legal Group is not a giant law firm but it has established itself as a powerful agent for righting wrongs against the state and its citizens, and rewarding individuals who cry foul at criminal actions.

We understand the stress and anxiety that accompanies these situations. Our goal is to win the case for you, to negotiate the most generous outcome possible and to alleviate the misery that conscientious employees find themselves in.

The state law does not apply to acts of fraud against the federal government. For that you must file in federal court. Our experienced attorneys can help with either kind of claim and invite you to call us at 212-577-9231 — or to email us your questions.
