Do I need an attorney to file a qui tam case?

Riddle Brantley LLP   |  January 19, 2015   |  

Yes, you need a qui tam attorney to represent you in your whistleblower case. While individuals are allowed to represent themselves in court, a relator is not representing himself or herself—instead, he or she is representing the federal government. No one can represent another person or entity except for a licensed attorney. Accordingly, pro se False Claims Act cases will be dismissed.
