After graduating in the top 15% of her class from the University of Cincinnati College of Law, Ms. Popham served as a law clerk to Hon. Thomas Grady of the Ohio Court of Appeals. She has contributed substantially to our False Claims Act publications and litigation, and co-authored our original-source and materiality articles.
