When he’s not “getting the bad guys” and making millions for his clients, Neal enjoys traveling and understanding different cultures.
Neal Roberts, a whistleblower himself, is a California attorney with more than 45 years’ experience in various aspects of law. After a career as a law professor and then practicing law with a big law firm, Neal joined an even bigger accounting firm. In his 15 years with the accounting firms, he testified in and designed the strategy for the damages phases of various trials involving tens to hundreds of millions of dollars. In the midst of this work, Neal discovered that a group of the professional firms were defrauding the Federal Government of tens of millions of dollars in illicit kickbacks regarding the travel expenses they charged to their clients, and with this information, blew the whistle, and brought a series of lawsuits upon behalf of the Federal Government. The travel alliances investigation led to discovery that these same professional firms had a series of similar alliances with the big technology companies, so Neal brought another series of lawsuits upon behalf of the Federal Government.
Neal enjoys analyzing a complex wrong to make it right, with dogged persistence and occasional brilliance. His False Claims act cases have resulted in dramatically changing the behavior of corporate actors, some of the most powerful social organizations in society.
