WNN does not operate a lawyer referral service and does not provide legal advice. However, since 1997, the National Whistleblower Legal Defense & Education Fund has sponsored a whistleblower legal assistance program for whistleblowers, attempting to locate private sector attorneys to provide representation to whistleblowers. This program is free of charge for all whistleblowers and has connected hundreds of whistleblowers with attorneys. If you have not already, please fill out the Fund’s secure and confidential intake form.
If you have already gone through the Fund’s intake process, use the resources provided below to search for an attorney. WNN is not responsible for any advice that you receive from anyone, attorney or non-attorney, including the persons listed in the various directories below. We strongly urge every whistleblower to obtain information concerning your rights (such as getting a copy of Rules for Whistleblowers) and subscribing to WNN to keep up to date on developments relevant to whistleblowers. We also urge you to join the National Whistleblower Center’s Action Alert program to help advocate for better laws protecting whistleblowers.
