Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto mortgage and bank fraud lawyers represent whistleblowers who file their cases under the False Claims Act.
Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto represented Robert Harris, a former assistant vice president in JPMorgan’s Chase Prime mortgage division. Robert Harris accused the bank of failing to assist borrowers seeking Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) assistance and knowingly submitting false claims for government insurance based on wrongful foreclosures. He was fired after he complained internally, and Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto successfully represented Mr. Harris in a False Claims Act lawsuit.
This case was not immediately apparent that it was actionable under the False Claims case. KKC pioneered a new theory of liability to apply qui tam law in this case.
The United States government and several state governments reached a settlement agreement to resolve these lawsuits, and Mr. Harris was awarded $1.2 million under the False Claims Act for his contributions to the government’s investigation.
