Tried And Trusted Representation
As a trial lawyer with more than 35 years of experience, I help people secure justice in cases involving whistleblower claims under the False Claims Act, as well as claims involving personal injury, oil and gas disputes and economic loss and commercial disputes.
My office, The Law Firm of Michael S. Porter, LLC, is located in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, and I represent individuals and businesses throughout Colorado and nationwide.
False Claims Actions Brought By Whistleblowers
The federal False Claims Act, and similar statutes enacted by a majority of the states, empower private citizens to “blow the whistle” on corruption and fraud against the government. These cases are procedurally complex. A successful whistleblower may recover between 15% and 30% of the amount recovered on behalf of the government.
Because False Claims Act cases are procedurally complex, you should only hire an attorney who has considerable and successful experience pursuing them. It is also important that your attorney be a competent litigator with significant trial experience. For the past 18 years I have successfully represented whistleblowers in hotly contested False Claims Act cases, with several cases resulting in multi-million dollar settlements or judgments. That 18 years of FCA experience is layered on top of 37 years of civil litigation experience in the areas of personal injury, economic loss and commercial disputes and oil and gas disputes.
I am recognized by my peers as a Super Lawyer, one of the top 100 attorneys in Colorado, one of America’s Most Honored Professionals and one of the Top Lawyers of Colorado, 2018, as published in the Denver Post.
