At Vogel, Slade & Goldstein, the only thing as important as holding accountable those who defraud the American taxpayer is protecting our whistleblower clients and rewarding them for their courage. As former U.S. Department of Justice fraud trial attorneys, VSG’s qui tam attorneys have pursued over one hundred False Claims Act cases and are nationally recognized leaders in winning rewards for their clients.
“It’s rare when one is rewarded so richly for doing the right thing,” said Mark Campbell.

“Tens of thousands of people were charged for alleged overpayments that occurred when they were children,” said Mary Grice.
As reported in a study of over 4,000 qui tam cases, VSG lawyers have the highest success rate nationwide for achieving monetary awards for their whistleblower clients — as well as the highest success rate in persuading the United States to join their clients’ qui tam lawsuits.
