Welcome to the National Whistleblower Legal Defense & Education Fund’s (“Fund”) Legal Assistance webpage
Confidential Whistleblower Case Review Intake Form

If you would like an attorney working with the Fund to review your potential legal case, please fill out the confidential whistleblower intake form. For more information about how the whistleblower intake process works read the Whistleblower Legal Assistance FAQs.

Your privacy is important to us. We consider all communications to the Fund to be strictly confidential. Attorneys working for the Fund will review the information provided. Also, if you do not wish to submit this form online, you may print it out, fill in the answers, and mail completed forms to NWLDEF, 1800 M Street, #33888, Washington, D.C. 20033.

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

The Fund is an independent public interest law firm that is entirely independent of the National Whistleblower Center. If you hire an attorney to represent you, the Fund will have no involvement with your case. Furthermore, it is up to you to independently evaluate the quality of any attorney /law firm you hire, even attorney affiliated with the Fund. An introduction to an attorney or a law firm does not constitute an endorsement of the attorney or law firm. The Fund’s review of your form is a pro bono public service. Neither the Fund or any attorney working with the Fund represents you unless the attorney and yourself sign a written representation agreement.

If you have a question about the form or want to confirm it was received, email the intake coordinator at

The intake form contains information about how the Fund uses the form and how the Fund can assist you. Please read it carefully before you submit it.

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

Please Note: Our organization works hard to respond to all inquiries on a timely basis. In instances where you expect a response but do not see one in your inbox, please check your “Spam” or “Junk” folder.
