Whistleblower Cases in Northern Virginia
Northern Virginia Whistleblower Lawyer
Northern Virginia, and most particularly the Dulles Technology Corridor, is home to a large concentration of defense contractors and other companies that do business with the federal government. Many companies in Arlington, Alexandria, and Fairfax have business contracts with the government and depend for most or all of their revenue on the work that they do for the military and other parts of the government. It is almost inevitable that a certain percentage of these contractors will engage in some type of fraud. When they do, it is the right and duty of those who have knowledge of the fraud to speak out by blowing the whistle.
