Standing Up For Whistleblowers
Washington, D.C.-based Bernabei & Kabat, PLLC, is nationally recognized for its successful representation of whistleblowers in government agencies, nuclear power plants, financial institutions and other institutions.
Our law firm represents private and government employees covered by qui tam, Sarbanes-Oxley Act as well as state whistleblower laws in cases involving corporate, health care, defense and other types of fraud. We are located in Washington, D.C., and serve clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic states, including Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York.
Not every person is covered by whistleblower laws, so it’s important to seek the counsel of an experienced attorney to determine if you qualify to bring a legal action. If you are qualified and the action is successful, you may be entitled to a percentage of the recovery. You may also be entitled to protection from job termination and other adverse employer actions.
Our employment law attorneys have represented scores of whistleblowers in the nuclear power industry and have, through their efforts, helped to ensure the safety of nuclear power plants across the United States. Prior to founding her own law firm, Lynne Bernabei served as General Counsel to the Government Accountability Project, a national organization dedicated to the representation of whistleblowers in government and private industry. In that capacity, she served as lead counsel in hearings to ensure the continued closure of Three Mile Island nuclear plant shutdown following the near meltdown that occurred there in 1979.
We have won significant settlements for such whistleblowers, from high-ranking officials at Los Alamos National Laboratory, to space shuttle whistleblowers, to workers at many of the nation’s nuclear power plants and to financial institutions.
