PHILADELPHIA, May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Berger & Montague, P.C., a nationally known full-spectrum civil litigation law firm with one of the largest and most successful whistleblower practices in the U.S, has named whistleblower attorney Daniel R. Miller a shareholder in the firm.
Miller focuses his practice on Qui Tam whistleblower cases under the Federal and State False Claims Acts; the SEC whistleblower statute; and the IRS whistleblower law. He joined Berger & Montague in 2010, after serving 16 years as a Deputy Attorney General for the Delaware Department of Justice. For the last seven years of Miller's service in the First State he headed Delaware's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, leading a cadre of government lawyers, investigators, and data analysts who recovered millions of dollars from the healthcare industry for state and federal taxpayers.
Since joining Berger & Montague, Miller has broadened the plaintiffs firm's whistleblower footprint. As a result of Miller's first-hand understanding of investigative sequences utilized by the federal and state prosecutors who pursue whistleblower cases, and his working relationships with those prosecutors, he has attracted a series of new clients and cases, most of which are national in nature.
Berger & Montague's whistleblower practice group, which has recovered well over $1 billion for federal and state governments over the course of the last decade, is proud to elevate Miller to the role of shareholder, according to Sherrie R. Savett, Chair of the Qui Tam Practice Group and a member of the firm's Management Committee, who said Miller's partnership "underscores Berger & Montague's commitment to representing whistleblowers, and our intention to maintain the Qui Tam Practice Group as a major force in U.S. whistleblower representation."
Miller also has served as President of the National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units ("NAMFCU"). As a member of NAMFCU's Global Case Committee, he worked on a series of large-scale fraud cases which returned more than $2.5 billion to state and federal treasuries. Prior to his NAMFCU presidency, Miller served as co-chair of the organization's Qui Tam Committee where he coordinated communications and litigation positions among states that had enacted their own False Claims Acts. Through these various roles, Miller helped execute a multi-year plan to increase the level of state involvement in national Medicaid fraud investigations and prosecutions.
Miller, who lives in Wilmington, DE, with his wife and three sons, graduated with honors from Temple University Law School in 1992, and currently serves as an adjunct professor at Temple Law, teaching trial advocacy.
