These are some of the cases that Alberto Naranjo has personally handled as a whistleblower attorney in the Miami area. Names have been changed to protect client confidentiality, but the details of the story remain the same.
- Erin, a drug rehabilitation and detox clinic employee, submitted written concerns to HR about suspicious corporate activity less than three months after joining the company. In an email sent to HR, Erin detailed what she believed to be unethical billing practices. The information was credible, given Erin’s extensive industry background, and so damning that the company’s CEO personally attempted to ruin Erin’s professional reputation. Attorney Alberto Naranjo proved Erin was retaliated against for whistleblowing and secured compensatory damages.
- Dr. Syned, M.D., Ph.D., voiced concerns about the hospital misleading research patients into experimental procedures. After alleging that patients were often unaware they were being used for clinical research, Dr. Syned says he was left out of department-wide meetings and removed from previously scheduled speaking engagements. A superior also threatened to terminate Dr. Syned due to conflict-of-interest, alleging his work at a different institution violated protocol. AN Law Firm, P.A. investigated the claim and discovered Dr. Syned had disclosed his employment with both institutions, per protocol, and revealed he did not actively seek the position but rather recruited by the other institution. Attorney Alberto Naranjo fought to protect Dr. Syned’s reputation of an esteemed research physician and secured compensatory damages to cover emotional distress and legal fees.
