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).

A skilled litigator, David Haas is also an Adjunct Professor at Barry University’s Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law where he teaches Trial Advocacy.

As a state and federal defense attorney David Haas brings more than 14 years of prosecution experience to helping his clients defend against criminal allegations.  He also understands the Federal Sentencing Guidelines and the mitigating factors that are critical in determining a defendant’s sentence.

Honest, Reliable and Great Communicator
David Haas provided excellent legal support for a criminal case, that our son found himself in. Our case was complicated by having multiple counties involved. David maneuvered throughout the process professionally and provided clear communication with our son and us as well as exceptional representation in court. We are so thankful and highly recommend David Haas!

Representation in a possession case
Attorney David Haas represented my son in a possession case a few moths ago. I have no words to describe our experience with him. As an attorney, he was amazing! He was professional, knowledgeable, always available and easy to communicate with. But it was his personal and human side that really struck us! Mr. Haas treated our case as if it was the only one! He understood the stress and the anguish our whole family was going through and was with us every step of the way. The case was finally dismissed… and we got our life back!

David was very strategic and knowledgable about what occurred. Made me feel very comfortable when it was truly an uncomfortable situation. Always answered my calls or texted me with updates. Sometimes daily. I totally recommend him. Also definitely got the job done!

Rave review
Mr. Haas was an excellent attorney and I believe was a huge factor in getting me the best possible outcome. I would recommend him to anyone needing an attorney. I am so thankful he was brought into my case.
Response from David Haas January 15, 2016
Thank you for the kind words. I am glad that the judge saw fit to give you probation instead of the prison time that the government was seeking! All the best going forward!
