Firm Represents Whistleblower ‘Short-Changed’ by US

The third engineer’s evidence earned the U.S. government over $2,000,000 in fines; and despite a Department of Justice recommendation that the third engineer recover from the criminal fines earned by the government, the third engineer has yet to receive any recovery for his efforts, which have left him unemployed.
