Whistleblower Legal Assistance Program

The National Whistleblower Legal Defense and Education Fund’s (NWLDEF) Whistleblower Legal Assistance Program is very simple—we match whistleblowers with lawyers who are interested in representing whistleblowers.

Your privacy is important to us. We consider all communication to the Whistleblower Legal Assistance Program to be strictly confidential.  Attorneys working with the NWLDEF will review the information provided. In addition, if you do not wish to submit this form online, you may print it out, fill in the answers and send it via postal service.

It is NWLDEF’s strict policy that the confidential report forms you submit remain confidential. We consider the submission and content of this form to fall within the confines of the attorney-client and work product privileges, and will treat the information we receive accordingly. Please understand that although we consider your communication with us to be privileged, we are not your attorneys and do not represent you.

If you hire an outside attorney to represent you, the NWLDEF’s  will have no further involvement with your case. Furthermore, it is up to you to independently evaluate the quality of any attorney/law firm you may hire, even if that attorney is affiliated with the NWLDEF. A referral does not constitute an endorsement of the attorney/law firm. The NWLDEF’s review of this form is a pro bono public service.

Please read the FAQ page for more information.

Fill out the form to contact the National Whistleblower Legal Defense and Education Fund.

If you have a question about the form, or want to confirm it was received, e-mail the intake coordinator at help@whistleblowers.org.

WARNING: Do not use your professional email or any computer network or devices owned by your employer when communicating with us.
