Adam Overstreet serves as Counsel in the firm’s Health Care Practice Group focusing on representing corporate and health care clients in government investigations, internal investigations, enforcement actions, white collar criminal prosecutions, and Federal False Claims Act and qui tam whistleblower actions. Adam has more than 16 years of extensive litigation experience in state and federal court.
With serving more than ten years at the Department of Justice, Overstreet has experience in both areas of civil defense litigation and all aspects of federal criminal prosecution, including investigation, indictment, trial, sentencing and appeal.
During his time at the DOJ, Adam worked as an Assistant United States Attorney (ASUA) in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Alabama. As an AUSA, he spent a lot of time in the courtroom, trying multiple felony jury trials – involving mostly white collar matters – each year. Adam was also a member of the office’s Complex Litigation Unit, and served as the Criminal Healthcare Fraud (HCF) Coordinator. In that position, he handled all criminal HCF matters in the office and directed numerous complex HCF investigations. He also participated in several “parallel” civil False Claim Act and qui tam “whistle blower” investigations.
Adam successfully revived the office’s dormant criminal HCF program, which culminated in what was then the largest and most complex HCF case in the history of the office, involving, among other things, alleged violations of the federal Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS). Following a multi-week trial in that case, during which Adam served as lead counsel, a jury convicted four defendants for their roles in the fraud scheme. Adam’s experience also includes serving on a prosecution team in a massive “pill mill” case that resulted in the convictions of two doctors following a seven-week trial. The doctors were sentenced to 20 years in prison and ordered to forfeit millions of dollars of personal assets.
While at the DOJ, Adam also served in a management capacity as the office’s Appellate Chief. In that role, Adam trained AUSAs regarding changes and developments in federal criminal law. He also litigated over 100 appeals before the Eleventh Circuit and orally argued several white collar cases, including a multi-million dollar “Ponzi” scheme prosecution and a public corruption prosecution.
Prior to his public service, Adam spent six years in private practice with a large Southeastern law firm, where he specialized in the defense of complex civil matters.
When he is not at work, you can find Adam spending quality time with his wife and three kids, watching college football, or trying his best to survive a triathlon.
