The Morris Law Firm – Panama City Criminal Defense Attorney Profile
Attorney Dana Morris, principal of the Dana Morris Law Firm has been practicing law in Florida for 20 years. After serving as a prosecutor for 11 years with the Attorney General’s Office and the State Attorney’s Office in Santa Rosa and Bay Counties, Dana Morris decided to turn his focus to criminal defense and establish his own firm in Panama City, Florida. Today, he is proud to help people assert their rights and overcome difficult situations.
As a Panama City criminal defense attorney, Dana Morris serves as a bridge builder between defendants and the criminal justice system. His prosecution experience means he knows how the state is likely to handle a particular charge, and he brings this knowledge to bear in helping his clients. He also maintains solid, respectful relationships with law enforcement, which works to the benefit of his clients. Too often, defense lawyers are unnecessarily combative, putting themselves and their clients in a negative light.
The majority of Dana’s cases are Florida felonies, but he also handles Panama City misdemeanor charges, especially for students and out-of-towners who find themselves in trouble with the law while on spring break or vacation. He has experience as a juvenile prosecutor—and he’s a parent—so he has compassion for young offenders. Dana is also well-qualified to handle white collar criminal cases, having spent seven years prosecuting Medicaid fraud for the Florida Attorney General.
Dana earned his law degree from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. He was admitted to the Florida State Bar in 2000, and since then he has been a member of the Florida Bar Association.
