Understanding the False Claims Act
The False Claims Act was originally enacted during the Civil War to prevent the military from using their relationship with the government for financial gain.
In recent years, the Act has been used to combat health care fraud and identify abuse in industries such as housing, construction, energy and more. The law prohibits some of the following:
- Knowingly presenting or causing a false or fraudulent claim for payment or approval
- Knowingly creating, presenting or making use of a false material or records
- Has possession, custody or control of property used or to be used by the government and knowingly delivering less of that money or property
- Conspiring to submit a false claim
- Receiving property from someone who is not legally authorized to sell the property
- Delivering a document the confirms receiving government property without knowing for sure that the information is accurate
Benefits of Hiring a Prescott Whistleblower Attorney
At Phillips Law Group, we understand the risks you are taking by releasing this sensitive information. We also know how difficult it can be to prove that an employer violated the False Claims Act. We are prepared to tackle these complex cases. We have a detailed understanding of this law and other relevant laws that may apply to your situation.
Once we establish that you are able to take legal action, an investigation will be conducted and supportive evidence will be gathered to begin building a strong case on your behalf.
The government may even intervene in your case, which may be beneficial as cases that have government intervention are often more successful than those that do not. If the government becomes involved, their attorneys will assume control of the case and may either pursue and prosecute the case, dismiss the case or settle it. The government, however, must approve if you want to settle the case.
Confidentiality in whistleblower cases is very important to our legal team. Your consultation is completely confidential and should you have a viable case, we are prepared to take the necessary steps to protect your identity from the public.

It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
