Dana Morris has been practicing law in Florida for over 17 years. After serving as a prosecutor for 11 years with the Attorney General’s Office in Pensacola and the State Attorney’s Offices in both Bay and Santa Rosa County, Dana Morris decided to turn his focus to criminal defense and establish his own practice as a criminal lawyer in Panama City, Florida. Today, he is proud to help people assert their rights and overcome difficult situations.  He offers a free consultation to anyone in need of an attorney’s assistance in an effort to maximize your chances of achieving the best outcome possible.

The majority of Dana’s cases are Florida felonies, but he also handles Panama City misdemeanor charges. 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 in Pensacola, FL.

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 has since been a member of the Florida Bar Association.
