An SEC Whistleblower Attorney New York City Can Trust

If you have information about securities fraud, securities violations, or fraud at a public company and want to bring it to the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC’s) attention, you are probably looking for the best SEC whistleblower attorney New York City has to offer.  But how are you going to make that decision?  How can you tell the difference between an SEC whistleblower attorney New York City residents can trust, and ones who are just pitching whatever they think you want to hear to get you to call them?

Considering the experience of various SEC whistleblower attorneys can be a helpful way to narrow down your search.  Jason R. Pickholz, the founder of The Pickholz Law Offices, is one of the few attorneys to have actually won an SEC whistleblower award for a client.  In addition, after the SEC’s staff initially recommended denying an award to that client, Mr. Pickholz appealed that decision to the full Commission in Washington -- and won.

The SEC whistleblower award program was created as part of the Dodd-Frank Act in 2010.  From 2010 - 2016, the SEC received over 14,000 whistleblower tips.  As of March 2016 -- almost six years later -- Mr. Pickholz was still the only attorney in the country to have ever won an award on appeal to the full Commission itself.  No one wants to think that something will go wrong, but on the chance that something does, what attorney do you want to have on your side?

Mr. Pickholz is an SEC whistleblower attorney New York City employees, customers, and residents, and residents of other States, can rely upon when they want to report a fraud or other securities law violation to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
