Why Choose Us

Guttman, Freidin & Celler is a partnership of three prominent law firms with a headquarters office in Miami. The three combined firms have expertise in representing whistleblowers under the False Claims Act, Complex Litigation, employment and labor law, and trial work. Our combination — including our level of litigation experience — is a unique value for each of our clients. We understand that because many whistleblowers are employees, having a background in employment and labor law is essential to our work.

 The partnership brings to any client a group of lawyers who have tried over 300 cases, been part of litigation resulting in the return of over $5 billion under the False Claims Act, sued some of the largest companies in the world, and secured multi-million dollar — and in some cases billion dollar — recoveries.

 The individual lawyers in our firms include a former Congressman, a former Federal Judge, a Presidential appointee, former federal court law clerks, law professors, and — most importantly — highly experienced litigators. Though this website lists some of the lawyers in our combined firms, it does not list all of them.

 Our firms pooled our resources and formed this partnership because we like working together and we care about the same things. We understand the importance of whistleblowers and their role in American history – particularly their role in making the nation a safer place and a place with more equal opportunity. But, at the same time, we also recognize that our nation is plagued by too many wrongdoers. There are too many companies looking to skirt the law and make a buck even if it means cheating the government or putting the unwary or infirm at risk of monetary loss or — worse yet — physical injury.

Though we take on the biggest companies and challenge wrongful practices that have gone unopposed, we pride ourselves on being champions for the voiceless. We are privileged to represent honest, hardworking people, who – in the words of the late Senator Edward Kennedy — “see a wrong and want to right it.”
