Get Free Legal Assistance

For over three decades, the National Whistleblower Legal Defense and Education Fund has sponsored free legal assistance programs for climate whistleblowers. The Fund’s primary goal is to help connect whistleblowers with private sector attorneys to provide them with leading representation. The Fund accepts intakes from both government and private sector whistleblowers, and reviews cases concerning climate, retaliation, qui tam, and lawsuits filed under the Dodd-Frank Act, among numerous other laws.

Our Attorneys

The Fund contracts with an outside experienced whistleblower law firm whose attorneys are licensed to practice law in the District of Columbia. Attorneys from this law firm review every intake and make all decisions regarding the intakes. This review is conducted free of charge on a pro bono basis. The Trustees of the Fund are not involved, in any way, with the review of intakes and do not make any decisions related to any of the intakes.
