James Hoyer Expanding Presence to D.C./Michigan & Adding Employment Law Practice

Dave Scher & David Haron

James Hoyer, P.A. is pleased to announce that it is expanding its presence to Washington D.C. and Michigan with two recent additions.  First, attorney Dave Scher, principal at The Employment Law Group for the past decade, is joining the firm as partner and will lead our new Washington, D.C. office and our new employment law practice.  Second, James Hoyer has established a formal association with attorney David Haron, founder and CEO of Haron Law Group in Detroit, Michigan to collaborate on whistleblower cases.

Scher’s expertise in both whistleblower litigation and employment law will be a tremendous asset to James Hoyer.  He has built a reputation as a fierce advocate for his clients in whistleblower cases, and his location in Washington, D.C. provides close proximity to key decision-makers at the Department of Justice and other federal agencies.  Dave has represented hundreds of whistleblowers in Medicare, securities, government contracting, and financial fraud cases nationwide.  Victories for his clients have recovered nearly $100 million over the past decade.  Further, Scher’s expertise as an employment litigator in equal pay, gender bias, discrimination, retaliation, and whistleblower claims make him the perfect attorney to establish our employment law practice.

“We’ve had the good fortune of working with Dave Scher on multiple whistleblower cases over the past several years and are excited to have him on our qui tam team and also as a driving force behind our new employment law practice,” said James Hoyer Managing Partner Jesse Hoyer.  “His tireless dedication and rock-solid relationships with federal officials have proven incredibly valuable, and we are lucky to have him on board full-time.”

In addition, David Haron’s extensive experience with the False Claims Act and health care law also will be an important asset to James Hoyer.  For 35 years, he has been a major force in whistleblower litigation in Michigan and throughout the country.  Among his many clients, Haron represented the whistleblower in the case against a Detroit doctor who’s been labeled “a monster” for falsely telling patients they had cancer, so he could cash in on their chemotherapy treatments.  The doctor was convicted and sent to prison, and with Haron’s help, the government recovered $17 million dollars for the fraudulent billing of chemotherapy to Medicare.  The case was recently profiled on the new CBS program Whistleblowers.”  James Hoyer and Haron will jointly work False Claims Act, health care, SEC, and employment cases.

“Collaborating with David is a powerful new tool in our arsenal to fight for whistleblowers and battle fraud against the government,” Hoyer said.  “This is an exciting time for the James Hoyer firm and having David’s experience and boundless energy on board will help to propel us to new heights.”

James Hoyer is one of the premiere whistleblower/False Claims Act law firms in the nation.  Our cases have recovered billions of dollars on behalf of taxpayers and consumers over the past 25 years.  The additions of attorneys Dave Scher and David Haron give our firm two more powerful allies to continue our proven track record of success.
