While I certainly did not intend to turn this False Claims Act law blog into a travel blog, here we go again!

After a 35-day shutdown, the Government was finally back open for business on Monday. The early bird gets the worm, so I hopped on a flight to beautiful and frigid Grand Rapids, Michigan on Sunday night for a meeting at the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Michigan on Monday morning. And when I woke up that day, I saw more snow than I’ve ever seen in my life!

Although the entire state took a snow day (and when Michigan closes for snow, you know it’s serious), the wonderful people at the U.S. Attorney’s Office came in just to meet with my whistleblower client and me, so that I could get out of town before things got really bad.

When we say we are a national False Claims Act firm, we mean it. We represent whistleblowers in qui tam cases all across the country (Although we are still waiting for that Hawaii case! Come on, Hawaiian whistleblowers!), and sometimes that can mean flying to western Michigan in the face of a January winter storm. We love our work and we love our clients, and we will do whatever we can to get your case filed and investigated as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Next stop: Washington, D.C.
