For An SEC Whistleblower NYC Is A Good Place To Look For A Lawyer

Having confidential information about securities violations or corporate fraud can be an intimidating prospect.  You may find yourself feeling particularly alone as you try to figure exactly what to do with this information.  You know that it should not be allowed to continue, but you may not be entirely sure what you can do about it or how to take the first steps.  You may have heard of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Whistleblower Award Program, but don’t relish the idea of talking to the U.S. government on your own.  Fortunately, for an SEC whistleblower NYC is a good place to look for a lawyer, because that is where you can find The Pickholz Law Offices.


Jason R. Pickholz, the founder of The Pickholz Law Offices, was one of the first lawyers ever to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client.  He was also the first lawyer ever to successfully convince the SEC to grant his client a whistleblower award over an initial recommendation by its staff not to grant one.  Inside Counsel Magazine named this victory as one of the "Five milestones in the Dodd-Frank whistleblower reward program".  For related articles please click here (Boston Business Journal) and here (NY Times).  In recognition of Mr. Pickholz’s achievements, he was elected by his peers to be a Fellow of the New York Bar Foundation, an honor limited to just 1% of all lawyers in the New York State Bar Association.

If you are interested in speaking with a recognized SEC whistleblower NYC attorney, now is the time to give Mr. Pickholz a call.  Your first conversation with Mr. Pickholz of up to one hour is free of charge.  You can discuss whether or not you may qualify as an SEC whistleblower, and can find out more information so that you can decide if Mr. Pickholz is the right lawyer for you.

Your initial phone call does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and the Firm or Mr. Pickholz.  Rather, an attorney-client relationship is only created after a written engagement letter is signed by both you and the firm, so you are under no obligation to hire Mr. Pickholz or The Pickholz Law Offices after your initial phone call.
