WHISTLEBLOWER ATTORNEYS THROUGHOUT ALL MAJOR CITIES IN CALIFORNIA. FEDERAL FALSE CLAIMS ACT & QUI TAM CLAIMS AVAILABLE NATIONWIDE.
The law places a high priority on preventing fraud and protecting whistleblowers from retaliation. For that reason, successful whistleblowers receive a share of the funds recovered from those parties who perpetrated the fraud.
At the law offices of Stephen Danz & Associates, we fight on behalf of those employees throughout the state of California who have the courage to blow the whistle on fraud and other wrongful employer actions. We have committed our entire practice, in fact, to representing only employees, never employers.
False Claims Act cases filed by whistleblowers who observe wrongdoing by their company are an important way to keep companies accountable when they defraud the government and consumers, and also compensate the whistleblower for their efforts in bringing the company to justice.

If you are terminated for an unlawful reason, you may be entitled to recover damages. Certain wrongful termination cases result in damages based on the terminated employee’s lost wages and other expenses, while some other cases also result in statutory penalties for violations of public policy. Additionally, some cases may require the employer to pay punitive damages to the employee if the employer’s actions were intentional or if the employer acted maliciously. Call Stephen Danz if you have been wrongfully terminated from your job.
