After several years as a prosecutor and General Counsel for the Broward County Police Benevolence Association (PBA), Michael White started his own practice focused on protecting individuals accused of crime.
While serving in the State Attorney’s Office, he was responsible for investigating and prosecuting hundreds of cases across numerous divisions in County and Circuit Court, including jury trials, motions to suppress, pretrial motions and non-jury trials. In 2018, Michael was nominated by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) for Prosecutor of the Year for the state of Florida.
At the PBA, Michael represented police officers accused of wrongdoing either criminally or administratively.
He also negotiated collective bargaining agreements for numerous police agencies with cities throughout Broward County, Florida.
In addition to his experience as a prosecutor, Michael worked in the financial sector, serving as an analyst/associate for Davis Selected Advisors, Deutsche Bank and Nomura Securities. This financial background serves him well when defending clients accused of financial crimes.
Michael graduated Cum Laude with a B.A. in History from Tulane University in 1999 and earned his J.D. with Honors from the George Washington University School of Law in 2003.
Michael prides himself on fighting for clients facing serious criminal charges. His advocacy often extends beyond the courtroom, as he frequently assists clients with the potential collateral repercussions that stem from their legal troubles. Michael is familiar with the uniqueness of each individual case and he will tailor his representation to those unique needs. There are no small cases – Michael handles everything from misdemeanors to first-degree felonies.
During his representation, Michael will appear with the client at ALL court appearances throughout the process. He will work with the client in determining the most suitable path for the client’s case. Hopefully, this will include a dismissal or a reduction of the charges. If not, however, Michael will standby, and zealously defend, his client. Michael, who has tried several dozen jury trials, is not afraid of the courtroom.
Michael handles a wide variety of criminal cases including:
– Drug Offenses
– Weapons Offenses
– White Collar Crimes
– Federal Crimes
– Fraud and other economic crimes
