  • Testimonials

    "When nobody else in government would help me and the flying public, Scott Bloch did what was right with courage.  He helped us and made a difference to the system and against the powerful interests in FAA and the transportation industry.  He is a great attorney and public servant."

    —Anne Whiteman, FAA whistleblower and Public Servant of the Year 2005 (appeared on Oprah Winfrey Show with Charlize Theron on women mistreated in the workplace)

    "As I was injured and suffered PTSD, it was a battle to get CNA insurance to provide benefits that were paid for. After two years of suffering from my disability, I had gone bankrupt due to the lack of ability to maintain a job. Because of your professionalism and ability to provide an awesome service, we were able to get CNA insurance to agree and settle on an amount of money to take care of my family and medical needs. During the negotiating process, you stood by my family and did not give up on getting the maximum amount even though you were at your limit legally for your payment. You are a true ethical person who has the best interest in their clients."

    —Shane Freese,
    Afghanistan contractor

    "I was extremely lucky to find Scott Bloch. With Scott’s help I was able to get through the nightmares of the DBA work comp process and settle my case, which had been lingering in the system for over five years. Unlike my previous lawyer, Scott is not afraid to go to bat for his clients and always has their best interest at heart. He kept me informed of all developments and returned my calls and e mails promptly. Scott is a fighter for his clients and in my opinion that is all you can ask from your counsel. I would highly recommend Scott if you need help with your legal issues."

    —Mark Griffin,
    Iraq Contractor

See Scott Bloch giving speeches in Taiwan to groups concerned about the legal status of Taiwan as a nation, and its relationship to the United States.  Bloch spoke in Taiwan in a number of venues about the place of the whistleblower who delivers an unpopular message of corruption, abuse of power and illegal treatment of citizens and workers.  These are problems that people around the world are looking to the United States and its laws for guidance to remedy their internal problems.
