Dallas-Fort Worth Attorney Handles Internal Investigations and Whistleblower Law


A whistleblower complaint is nearly always accompanied by the launch of a corporate internal investigation. Corporate internal investigations present a legal minefield of potential problems for whistleblowers. This is one area of law in which it is crucial for an individual to seek counsel early. Not only can counsel hold a whistleblower’s hand throughout the investigative process, but your legal team can also provide guidance and warnings regarding things that you should or should not do. An experienced attorney can provide you with a playbook of how to protect yourself and your livelihood throughout the internal investigation process. Drawing on over 35 years of experience, attorney Steve Kardell provides:

  • Strategic advice: Many attorneys who advertise whistleblower services do not have a strong background in internal investigations or corporate Miranda rights. This can put them at a significant disadvantage in protecting their client by failing to influence the internal investigation and its focus adequately.
  • A calming influence: If the spotlight of an internal investigation has been turned on you, you know that the way of life you have become accustomed to is in jeopardy. You may directly contact attorney Kardell — day, night or weekends — for clear answers. This direct access to him should facilitate your working relationship and calm your mind, so you can work together more effectively.
  • Confidence you can trust: For more than 35 years, Mr. Kardell has counseled and advocated for high-level corporate executives mired in Kafka-esque whistleblower and internal investigation issues. He typically pursues a dual-pronged approach and defends you from misdirected internal investigations, while simultaneously making use of whistleblower laws to go on the offensive.

Steve Kardell recently settled two unrelated Sarbanes-Oxley cases involving allegations of retaliation against corporate executives, recovering in excess of $750,000 (net to each client) in proceedings before the U.S. Department of Labor.
