Steve Grover, Esq. practices civil litigation in federal and state courts. Steve frequently represents whistleblowers in qui tam lawsuits under the federal and state False Claims Acts. He also represents whistleblowers in retaliatory discharge cases under the Florida Private and Public Whistleblower Acts.
In his most recent False Claims Act case, Steve represents two whistleblowers who allege that Donald Proctor, Jr., M.D., of Vero Beach, Florida, overbilled Medicare for medically unnecessary Mohs surgeries and skin reconstructions. Mohs surgery is an advanced procedure used to remove skin cancers. On November 20, 2014, the Justice Department formally decided to join into the case. (See Justice Department’s press release, Government Intervenes In Lawsuit Against Donald C. Proctor, Jr., M.D. Alleging Unnecessary Mohs Surgeries And Related Procedures. See also TCPalm article, U.S. government joining lawsuit against Vero Beach doctor accused of fraud.) Steve and his clients had been collaborating with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami for three years before the Justice Department made this favorable decision.
Steve is a frequent speaker and writer about whistleblower rights, Medicare and Medicaid fraud, and litigation strategies. He also handles other types of employment law cases, as well as consumer rights, personal injury, medical malpractice, maritime, and class action cases.
He recently settled a class action against Equifax, the credit bureau, in federal court in San Francisco, which resulted in a recovery for approximately 58,000 consumers and caused Equifax to change the way that it reports debts in tens of millions of credit reports annually.
Steve graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University, where he received a John Harvard Scholarship for “academic achievement of the highest distinction” and a Charles Warren Prize Scholarship for advanced studies in history.
Steve then graduated from the University of Texas Law School, where he served on the Board of Editors of the Texas Law Review and received its award for outstanding legal research. He also holds a LL.M. in maritime law from Tulane University. At Tulane, Steve was a finalist in the very first Judge John R. Brown National Moot Court Competition.
Before becoming a lawyer, Steve served as a journalist in Cuba for the Dallas Morning News and was the Editor-in-Chief of Let’s Go: Europe, the largest selling travel guidebook in the world at that time.
