Our Services

Our clients come first. We fight hard to protect them.

How we help

We will consider issues arising from any area of U.S. law or policy. In some cases, it may be possible for whistleblowers to remain anonymous even if they choose to move forward with a complaint.

Our Legal Services

  • Helping federal investigators
    Including Special Counsel Robert Mueller to gather evidence of alleged crimes by senior U.S. officials.
  • Publicizing complaints
    Through pre-publication review, First Amendment lawsuits in federal courts, and other lawful approaches to engage the media.
  • Meeting with Members of Congress
    Their staff and the relevant oversight committees.
  • Filing internal complaints
    Filing complaints with agency Inspectors General and the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.
  • Whistleblower protection advocacy
    Advocacy to strengthen and improve legal protections for whistleblowers, which are currently too weak.
  • Qui Tam lawsuits
    To recover monetary damages from private parties defrauding the United States, including payments to successful clients.

Additional Support

Whistleblower Aid seeks to lower the barriers for courageous patriots to step forward. As a law firm headquartered in the District of Columbia, in some cases we hope to provide clients with additional support including:

  • Media & public relations coaching
  • Dedicated, Secure Devices
    For clients’ use in communicating with us about their case
  • Employment claims under the Whistleblower Protection Act
  • Transition Assistance
    Temporary rent or mortgage support and networking to help find new jobs, in case of loss of employment
  • Psycho-social counseling and treatment

Why we're different

Whistleblower Aid is unique.

Other organizations — including Wikileaks, journalistic publications, and even some other law firms and whistleblower organizations — do not currently provide all of these advantages that Whistleblower Aid provides to every client:

Attorney-client privilege

We are legally prohibited from sharing your communications or your identity with anyone else without your explicit consent.

Free legal advice

We help clients safely, lawfully and responsibly report questionable government activity, with free legal advice from attorneys with extensive experience on issues related to classified information and whistleblowing.

Ethical Commitment

Whistleblower Aid is required to act in the best interests of each client. If you decide not to go forward with a complaint, then we will never publicize anything you have told us. Your secrets will never leave us.

Secure communications technology

We have implemented sophisticated security protocols so that no one else can learn what you tell us, or even that you contacted us. Security is our top priority.

Professionalism

We are a non-ideological, non-partisan, not for profit law firm that does not seek to advance a particular agenda beyond protecting the rule of law.

Premier Network

We engage only exceptional lawyers — recognized leaders in the field who are committed to our mission. Collectively our network has many decades of experience in government and national security law, and an established history handling matters related to classified information and whistleblowing.

Criminal Matters

We created this project to provide legal advice and representation to prospective whistleblowers, and to improve legal protections for whistleblowers. For those under active criminal investigation, we may be able to provide advice or refer them to another lawyer. We are not a criminal defense firm, and in general we cannot provide criminal defense to individuals who have already been charged with crimes.
