About Linda

Learn Linda’s areas of practice.

I devote my practice 100% to representing whistleblowers bringing qui tam cases under the False Claims Act or disclosing fraud under other whistleblower programs. I have over 35 years of experience in criminal and civil enforcement actions. I was a criminal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York, where I handled complex investigations, trials, and appeals. I also have worked in private practice as a white-collar defense attorney and in-house at a Fortune 100 corporation. My varied experience enables me to analyze whistleblower matters from multiple perspectives.

I love practicing law because it engages my mind in analyzing complex issues, my heart in understanding the hopes and fears of my clients, and my voice in advocating for justice. I am inspired by my whistleblower clients who have the courage to take action against wrongdoers.

Highly respected, highly recommended
From our first meeting, I knew I was in good hands with Linda. Vastly knowledgeable and deeply caring, Linda exemplifies professionalism and integrity. She has carefully guided me through the process of my case, keeping me apprised along the way so I was never left wondering where things stood. And while I am aware that she maintains a very busy workload, she responded to every one of my texts and emails promptly, making me feel as though my concerns were a priority for her. When circumstances in life present the need for an attorney, it does not come without a measure of anxiety, and wondering if you chose the right lawyer to represent you is one of those concerns. Not only has Linda been the best attorney I could have chosen, she has also become a trusted friend. I have the utmost respect for Linda Severin and would highly recommend her for anyone seeking legal representation.

Absolutely the Best!
I could not have been more fortunate to have Linda representing me. Her exceptional knowledge of the law combined with her tenacious research abilities afforded me significant advantages in my case. She is very attentive to my needs and makes sure I am fully comfortable in my understanding of the details especially when important difficult decisions need to be made. I would highly recommend her for any of your needs related to health care, government contracts, securities and investment fraud.
