    Mr. Blanchard has extensive experience in the following legal matters: nonprofit administration, trade secret and noncompete disputes, employment agreements, professional compensation, sales commissions, overtime pay, whistleblowers and false claims acts. Committed to fighting for the civil rights of individuals, he also represents those who blow the whistle on their employers in issues of taxpayer fraud or Medicare fraud.
