Kaitlyn Fudge

Always prepared, Kaitlyn is a compassionate and driven advocate for her whistleblower clients. She helps them see the big picture and stay focused on doing the right thing.

“Qui tam cases can be very complicated, but I love the challenge. I am inspired when working with our clients because they are always so motivated to ‘right the wrong’ which makes all the hard work worth it.”

Kaitlyn Fudge is committed to her whistleblower clients, and she appreciates the challenging situations they find themselves in. When they come to her, they are usually overwhelmed – they may have seen fraud committed or have a sense that what is happening at their workplace is wrong. Perhaps they work for a healthcare provider who is cutting corners in patient treatment and their employer is submitting false billing claims for payment to the government. They know something is wrong, and they are often afraid. Kaitlyn explains the legal process and helps her clients manage their fears so that together, they can try to stop the fraud.

Preparing for the challenges ahead

When Kaitlyn decides to tackle something, she does it 100%. She graduated from North Carolina State University with a B.S. in Environmental Science, magna cum laude. Wanting to make a positive impact in her community, she chose to pursue a career in law. “Both in law school and now, I’ve always been driven by the passion to become the lawyer that I’d want to hire for myself if I ever needed legal help.”

When she earned her J.D. from Campbell University School of Law, summa cum laude, Kaitlyn graduated first in her class. She received 18 different recognitions at Campbell, including 13 Book Awards (which represent the highest grade earned in a specific class), three Academic Success Awards (which represent the highest overall yearly grade point average per class), a Campbell Law Review “outstanding achievement” recognition, and, most notably, the Jessie and Elizabeth Leonard Valedictorian Award.

In addition to receiving multiple academic awards, Kaitlyn was also the Chief Articles Editor for the Campbell Law Review, a Pro Bono project coordinator, a member of the Executive Board for both the Campbell Law Review and the Pro Bono Council, and a teaching scholar. She also worked with the Blanchard Community Law Clinic, which provides free legal services to people who can’t afford it. Kaitlyn was determined to get the most out of law school so she could represent her clients with confidence.

Making a positive impact

Kaitlyn has represented large companies and individuals with their legal matters and is experienced in North Carolina litigation procedures, both in the courtroom and out. She is an active member of the North Carolina Bar Association, in which she has served on the Wellness Committee and Pro Bono Committee and chaired the Pro Bono Recognition Subcommittee. She is also a member of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice and is licensed to practice in North and South Carolina, as well as in the U.S. District Court of the Eastern, Middle, and Western Districts of North Carolina.

Born and raised in North Carolina, Kaitlyn is passionate about helping fellow Carolinians face their toughest life challenges. “I was motivated to become an attorney because I wanted to help others. I could not envision myself in a career that didn’t impact others in a positive way or make a positive change on our community.”

Kaitlyn and her husband (and dogs) live in Raleigh. She stays active by fishing, playing tennis, and practicing yoga and loves to spend time outdoors with her friends and family.

Whistleblower Attorneys

If you’re wondering if it’s a good idea to speak with a whistleblower lawyer about what you know, let us set the record straight.

  • Corporate ethics hotlines can be risky and may lead to termination. If you’ve already done this, call us immediately.
  • Your coworkers could be aware of the fraud – or complicit in it – and you should not talk to them about it.
  • The first claim to be filed under the False Claims Act can proceed – if you’re not first, you’re at a serious disadvantage and may get nothing (another reason not to speak to your coworkers about it).
  • A confidential discussion costs you a few minutes, but could save you time, stress, and money.
