The Law Firm of Wilbanks & Bridges has developed a nationally recognized qui tam practice. These “whistleblower suits” as they are commonly referred to, have been the primary focus of our practice since 1996, resulting in the successful return of over $1 Billion to the American taxpayer. Whistleblower cases routinely involve the firm’s representation of individuals who come forward with information concerning various frauds committed against the government, often involving Medicare or Medicaid abuse. The successful results we’ve obtained for our clients have been the subject of national TV coverage, newspaper articles and legal periodicals across the country for over the last decade. »See Our Experience
