Meet Our Partners: Marlan Wilbanks | Susan Gouinlock


The Law Firm of Wilbanks & Gouinlock has developed a nationally recognized legal practice successfully resolving qui tam or “whistleblower suits”. Such cases, often involving the firm’s representation of individuals who come forward with information concerning various frauds committed against the government, have been the primary focus of the firm’s practice since 1996. Many of these claims involve the relator or whistleblower’s knowledge of Medicare or Medicaid abuse. The cases can also relate to the defrauding of a government entity by a person or corporation in the military defense industry, medical industry or any other type of business that bills the Government for goods or services.

Defenders of the American Taxpayer

We are currently handling whistleblower false claims cases in federal courts and state courts across the nation. The firm has filed cases for whistleblowers that have returned over two billion dollars ($2,000,000,000) to the taxpayers of the United States over the last decade.

The successful results we’ve obtained for clients in this field of practice have been the subject of national TV coverage, newspaper articles and legal periodicals across the country. Media outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, Atlanta Business Chronicle, Atlanta Journal Constitution, CNN and MSNBC and Atlanta network affiliates, routinely cover and report on Wilbanks & Gouinlock’ successful representation of whistleblower clients over the past decade.

An Experienced, Knowledgeable, and Personable Team

Over the years, our qui tam litigation practice has grown and thrived. We have substantial expertise and resources available to our whistleblower clients in aid of the prosecution of these important cases. These cases are important and profitable not only for firm clients, but also for the taxpayers of the United States. For every dollar recovered by our clients, approximately 75 to 80 percent of that amount is returned to the Government for losses resulting from the fraudulent acts which our whistleblowers revealed to the Government.
