Employment and Whistleblower Attorneys

We represent employees in litigation against both local employers and multinational corporations.  Our whistleblower clients are usually dedicated employees who discover fraud against the government by health care companies, banks, government contractors or other large corporations.  We assist investment professionals and traders with evidence of fraud against investors or violations of securities law, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, report to the Securities & Exchange Commission.  Our experience reporting tax evasion and accounting issues over $2 million by corporations and high net worth individuals has been nationally recognized.  If you were illegally fired because of a discriminatory motive or retaliation, we will bring a lawsuit to get you compensation for their misconduct.  If your employer did not pay you the amount you are owed under the law, we will bring a lawsuit under the Fair Labor Standards Act for your back pay.

Report fraud and get protection from retaliation.

We’ve helped dozens of clients report violations of the law to the U.S. Government.  We will put together a persuasive presentation that lays out the wrongful conduct, the laws that have been broken and your evidence.  We will also protect your confidentiality and employment to the maximum extent allowed by the law.

Do you have evidence a company is breaking the law?

We represent families injured by a health care practitioner’s failure to diagnose an illness, surgical error, prescription mistake, malpractice during pregnancy or nursing home neglect.  When a doctor’s treatment of a patient falls below accepted standards of medical practice, the victim and their family needs a team of lawyers and medical experts working on their behalf.  Jim McEldrew and the trial lawyers at McEldrew Young have helped clients receive millions of dollars of compensation for their injuries due to the negligence of physicians, nurses and hospitals.  We’re ready to examine the medical records to determine whether you have a case and to find well-respected medical experts that will testify to the negligence in court.  Whether your family is now grieving the loss of a family member due to wrongful death or has a lifetime of medical expenses to care for someone following the medical error, our team will work hard to make sure your family gets the compensation they deserve..  The statute of limitations in medical malpractices cases is surprisingly short – just two years – so do not delay in contacting us.

Catastrophic Transportation Accidents

Catastrophic commercial truck, car, bus and train accidents require lawyers, like ours, with experience in complex medical cases and accident reconstruction.  If you are seriously injured in an accident involving a motor vehicle or public transportation in Philadelphia, you need attorneys that are familiar with both the law of transportation accidents as well as have an understanding of the medical treatments that are involved in brain, back and spinal cord injuries.  Our personal injury attorneys are ready to go head to head against the insurance companies and their lawyers to get you and your family the money that you are entitled to for the injuries that you have suffered.

Contact Our Drug and Device Lawyers

Thousands of individuals are injured every year due to the misconduct of pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers.  If a company misrepresents the safety or efficacy of their product to the Food and Drug Administration or consumers, untold numbers of patients will be harmed.  We represent both whistleblowers reporting these problems to the U.S. Government as well as patients who have been harmed as a result of the misleading information put out by these medical companies.

Other Practice Areas

We’re ready to go to war for you. Our trial attorneys have taken hundreds, if not thousands, of cases to verdict for clients.  Our attorneys have handled a remarkably diverse set of personal injury cases on behalf of clients in the Philadelphia area.  We do the most work for clients in medical malpractice, FELA and transportation accidents.  However, in our combined 100 years of legal practice, we’ve handled everything from dog bites to nursing home neglect to mass torts.


We represent the families of the UFCW 1776 and are designated counsel for the IBEW and TWU in Railroad Worker Injury FELA litigation.


We oppose large corporations in securities litigation, wage & hour lawsuits and mass torts when their actions injure our clients.


We handle novel and interesting cases even if they aren't listed here. Contact us.



Whistleblowers have received 9 awards under IRS § 7623(b). Eric represented the first.  And served as an expert in the largest.

Eric has helped clients report some of the nation’s largest frauds against the U.S. Government.  Many are still under investigation and confidential.  But he’s already helped recover more than $2 billion for the U.S. Treasury.  When the International Ethics Standards Board of Accountants needed input on revising their code of ethics for reporting fraud, they contacted Eric and invited him to a roundtable of accountants to help get the rules right.  He’s represented clients on four continents from a wide range of professional positions in health care, government contracting and the financial industry, among others.  And Eric has built a network of contacts to ensure he has access to the resources necessary to fight Fortune 500 companies breaking the law.  Prior to starting McEldrew Young, Eric founded Young Law Group.
