Thought: I see something in my work environment or I am aware of something that just doesn’t seem right. Does contacting an attorney mean that I have to file a lawsuit or work with the attorney I contacted?
Answer: Many potential whistleblowers contact attorneys just to get an independent perspective on what they are seeing. Sometimes, the would-be whistleblower will decide to do nothing. Sometimes, the would-be whistleblower will go forward with a different attorney. Sometimes, the would-be whistleblower will take some time to think about his or her options. Contacting an attorney requires nothing more from you than a conversation!
