Gabriel Feldman, M.D. | Whistleblower Client”I did a great deal of research before deciding on what firm to contact about a possible fraud. And I went through a good deal of search on the internet in order to find a firm that, I thought, was going to be the best to handle this case, due to its size and sensitivity. I was able to find Levy Konigsberg LLP based on their reputation, and their website, and referrals that I read on the Internet.
Because of all the efforts of my attorneys and my coming forward, the relator’s share in my case was approximately twenty one percent of the final settlement. And I think that is in part directly due to my efforts, but also to the efforts of my very vigorous defense and vigorous pursuit for my attorney of the case.
In this situation, the fact that we settled for millions and millions of dollars is obviously something that makes me very happy and very satisfied, but also the fact that the injustice was brought forward, and the fact that my attorneys and myself are going to be rewarded for, I think, taking a big risk because my career certainly was being risked. And coming forward in a city like New York where there is a lot of visibility, in a city program, I think that the reward was just, and again I’m very proud to be a relator and I’m very proud to be associated with Levy Konigsberg LLP.”
Steven Simon | Whistleblower Client
“I am writing to thank you for successfully settling my New York State False Claims Act case. When I came to the firm about my potential case I had a lot of questions and I was nervous about coming forward.
I was a long time employee of the nursing home for whom I worked and I lost my job. I had some reservations about being a whistleblower and your team helped to ease my mind and assure me that it was the right thing to do.
The issues that were of concern to me involved the nursing home double-billing for residents beds even though they had left the facility permanently or for extended hospital stays. In some cases the residents had even passed away and the nursing home continued to bill Medicaid for the patient’s beds.
After many years of observing this illegal activity and trying to make changes within the facility – I felt I had no choice, but to formally report this to the government.
Your firm explained all of the steps involved in filing my case, took the time to update me as it progressed, prepared me for my meeting with New York State officials, and patiently answered all of my questions along the way.
Without your knowledgeable guidance and representation, I may not have been successful in bringing this situation to the government’s attention and achieving a just result.
I would not hesitate to recommend Levy Konigsberg’s Qui Tam Department to anyone considering bringing a whistleblower action.”
