About this office:
The team of Henry Frohsin and Jim Barger first gained national recognition in the highly-publicized and groundbreaking arms export case, U.S. v. Latifi, et al. Frohsin - a veteran federal prosecutor well-known for his zealous prosecutions of the Ku Klux Klan - and Barger - a rising star whose legal writing shaped the development of False Claims Act litigation - formed a dynamic trial combination.
In the fall of 2008, the two lawyers along with attorney Elliott Walthall left their thriving corporate practices at a major Southern firm to create something new. Focusing strictly on the pursuit of justice and the idea that law practice is a noble profession - not big business - the firm made a priority of fighting Government fraud and abuse, quickly achieving unprecedented results that again placed them in the national spotlight: recovering nearly $25 Million on behalf of taxpayers and exposing the largest Medicare Hospice fraud in the country's history.
Frohsin & Barger's success has been profiled in USA Today, ABA Journal, American Lawyer, National Law Journal, and others. The firm focuses exclusively on False Claims Act whistleblower qui tam actions, government investigations, and complex litigation and takes only a select number of high-stakes cases at any given time.
