About Us | Attorney Bert Louthian

Whistleblower Attorney Bert LouthianFor over thirty years, Bert Louthian has been practicing law in Columbia, South Carolina, alongside his father, Herb, providing clients with a collective 80 years of legal experience. Family has always been a top priority for Bert, who, along with his wife, is the proud parent of three lovely children.

Since receiving his Juris Doctor from the University of South Carolina, Bert has been dedicated to helping those who have been wronged or have witnessed wrongdoing so they can come forward safe in the knowledge that they will be provided the best representation possible.

One of Bert’s main areas of focus is whistleblower lawsuits, uncovering fraud against the government and, by extension, the American taxpayers.

One example of a whistleblower case that Bert handled involved employees of a moving company, who approached Bert with claims that their employer falsified the weight tickets billed to the government for the cost of relocating service members. The claims were settled for $5 million dollars, of which the employees were awarded 25 percent.

Bert sees claims like this as a public service and is proud to represent those who step forward to report fraud. Blowing the whistle on large corporations or employers can seem intimidating, but Bert is happy to help facilitate the courageous people who blow the whistle on government fraud through his experience and knowledge on all aspects of the False Claims Act and qui tam suits.

In addition to representing his clients, Bert has a passion for his family and enjoys being active, whether it is through cycling, stand-up paddle surfing, ping pong, kiteboarding or yoga.
