Whether to Apply for a Reward for Reporting Fraud against the Government
"Do I have a case?" This is one of the most important questions you can ask, and you deserve trustworthy, confidential advice by an attorney experienced with the reward programs.
Mr. Hesch can help. Deciding whether to apply for a reward for reporting fraud against the government or reporting underpaid income taxes is so important that Mr. Hesch wrote two books outlining both government reward programs. He also developed his own screening tools, starting with a questionnaire for you to fill out. (See below.) The confidential questionnaire serves several purposes. First, it puts you at ease by asking questions, instead of requiring you to assess your case by yourself. Second, by requiring you to write out your answers, it makes you be more articulate and detailed. It also highlights what additional work needs to be done before filing for a reward. Finally, if you are not willing to go through the effort of filing out a form before talking to an attorney about your case, you won't have the staying power needed to collect a significant government reward. Isn't it better to find out early if you have a potentially good case, than discover months or years from now that you wasted your time?
Please note, Mr. Hesch only takes cases where the loss to the government is over $5 million. (If you have a smaller case, where the reward will be small, you might consider contacting TAF.org, which can give you a referral to an attorney that might take a smaller case.)

Use of the Questionnaire
You can send your questionnaire in confidence to Mr. Hesch. He works closely with a team of hand selected attorneys who are fully devoted to representing whistleblowers under the government reward programs. We will use your information to begin evaluating whether we believe you have a case the government may accept and if we can and will represent you. Either way, we will contact you after we have a chance to initially evaluate your questionnaire.
Rest assured, we will keep your information confidential. Even though a formal attorney client relationship does not exist, the law provides that when you contact an attorney to explore a potential case, the information is treated as confidential.
