A fifth-generation Floridian, he graduated from Stetson University College of Law in 2001 and began his career as a state prosecutor with the State Attorney’s Office in the Tenth Judicial Circuit.  After three years of handling felony and misdemeanor offenses, attorney David Haas was promoted to Chief of the Economic/Environmental Crimes Division where he was responsible for the investigation, intake, and prosecution of complex financial crimes including racketeering and public corruption cases.

In February 2006, David Haas joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Middle District of Florida.  He served as a federal prosecutor for nearly 10 years where he was honored for his litigation and investigative skills.  During his tenure as an Assistant United States Attorney, he handled complex white-collar matters including bank fraud, mortgage fraud, money laundering, tax fraud, FOREX trading, healthcare fraud, and Ponzi/investment schemes.

In addition to handling white-collar matters, David Haas was an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) prosecutor that handled large-scale drug distribution/manufacturing organizations, wiretap investigations, violent crimes, human trafficking, firearm offenses, gang cases, and asset forfeiture matters.  David Haas also gained significant experience in handling cybercrime and cryptocurrency (Bitcoin) prosecutions, including the prosecution of individuals who trafficked in controlled substances on the internet and on TOR (The Onion Router) accessed markets.

While a federal prosecutor, David Haas received awards and commendations for his work with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the U.S. Department of Education Office of Inspector General. He also worked closely with agents from the Federal Reserve Board Office of Inspector General, the United States Secret Service, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
