  • Issuance of mortgages based on false or incorrect appraisals
  • Failure to perform adequate due diligence in evaluating loan eligibility
  • Fraud related to mortgage-backed securities
  • Foreclosures based on “robo signing” or other deficiencies in reviewing loan defaults

  • Upcoding medical services in order to bill at exaggerated rates
  • Unbundling a single service to make it appear as multiple services
  • Billing for unnecessary services or for services not provided

Steve Kardell advises on reporting immigration fraud by businesses

Federal law imposes heavy restrictions and complex eligibility requirements on bringing foreign workers to the U.S. Employers and staffing companies sometimes circumvent or manipulate the legal process in a number of ways, such as:

  • Knowingly employing foreign workers whose immigration documents are forged or otherwise invalid
  • Falsifying a foreign worker’s credentials or the description of their job to obtain legal immigration status
  • Filing visa petitions for jobs that don’t exist
  • Contracting out foreign workers in violation of the terms of their visas

Identifying and reporting immigration fraud can be problematic. Whistleblower Law for Managers can provide invaluable assistance for executives or managers who wish to report such activity and seek protection from retaliation

In his new book, "Standing Up to China: How a Whistleblower Risked Everything for His Country," former client & Author, Ashley Yablon, quotes Attorney Steve Kardell about Whistelblower Law.
  • "Steve Kardell was terrific in representing me in some very adversarial discussions with Citigroup and also later represented me in my testimony before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission."  -Richard Bowen, Citigroup Whistleblower

  • "Incredible knowledge of employee related concerns and equally brilliant knowledge of health care regulations, standards of practice. I would recommend this firm to anyone."  -V.B.

  • "Reaching out to Steve Kardell was the best decision I made. His ability to provide immediate insight and direction was very powerful, and a huge relief during a very stressful time period. For anyone struggling with a whistleblower situation, I would highly recommend at least speaking with Steve. After a 10 minute call with him, I had a better understanding of what I was dealing with. Even better, he gave me some immediate hope. In the end Steve did a better job than I thought was possible. Steve was able to get in contact with people in my organization, that I didn’t have access to. Because of his years of experience, he already has contacts in many organizations in Dallas. The entire situation was handled peacefully. I was impressed by his ability to “keep the peace”–rather than creating a battle with the organization. The reason I didn’t reach out to a lawyer initially, was because I thought it would mean an immediate end to any hope of a positive relationship with the company. Steve was able to address my concerns, and in the end I was able to continue to work for them."  -KS

  • "Never thought my career would end like it did after 30 years of service. I was part of the first round of the so called reduction of force. I asked myself how can I be part of this with 30 years of seniority. How did they pick these 90 plus employees? Now, the culture of this organization made you question every decision they made. It wasn’t what you knew it’s was a culture of who you know. Nonetheless, I did not accept their severance package. I immediately starting looking for an attorney who would take on my case. After the initial call to Steve I had hope again. He was open and honest about everything and reassured me he would do his best for me, and he did. I had an awesome outcome. Thanks Steve you’re the best."  -S.S.
