Attorney Profile

As a partner at Finch McCranie, LLP, Michael A. Sullivan serves the southeastern region of the United States; in particular, the areas of Atlanta, Georgia, and the greater Fulton County area. He focuses his practice on areas involving whistleblowing, such as qui tam litigation under the False Claims Act, and IRS whistleblowing claims. Throughout his career, Mr. Sullivan has submitted claims totaling billions of dollars.

Mr. Sullivan graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Arts in 1977. In 1984, he received his Juris Doctor from Vanderbilt University Law School. Mr. Sullivan immediately put his degree to use by working for U.S. District Judge Marvin H. Shoob as a law clerk until 1986. From 1995 to 1998, Mr. Sullivan worked as an associate independent counsel at the U.S. Office of the Independent Counsel. In this position, he assisted in prosecuting a former U.S. Cabinet member in the Reagan administration.

Due to his extensive knowledge on the subject of whistleblowing, Mr. Sullivan was contacted by Congress to help draft a new set of whistleblowing guidelines. Mr. Sullivan has also provided his knowledge and skills to help develop versions of the False Claims Act for individual states. He continues to work with the staff of the IRS by holding seminars and programs on the subject of pursuing IRS whistleblower claims. Mr. Sullivan is also the co-author of the Whistleblower Lawyer Blog, a blog that tracks all significant developments in whistleblowing.

In order to keep up-to-date in his practice, Mr. Sullivan holds membership in multiple legal organizations. These include the American Association for Justice, the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the State Bar of Georgia, the Atlanta Bar Association and the American Bar Association.
