Adam Overstreet has joined Burr & Forman where he will practice with firm's health care group in Birmingham. After serving more than ten years at the Department of Justice, Overstreet brings extensive experience dealing with white collar criminal and civil matters that will enhance the firm's capacity to successfully serve clients in the health care industry.
"With health care a top priority nationally and for the businesses we serve, Adam's experience within health care litigation supports our ability to counsel clients seamlessly through the ever-changing landscape," said Howard Bogard, leader of Burr & Forman's health care practice group. "Adam's substantial background with the Department of Justice adds a unique strength to our team."
Prior to joining Burr & Forman, Overstreet served as the Appellate Section Chief at the Southern District of Alabama's U.S. Attorney's Office where he trained Assistant U.S. Attorneys regarding developments in federal criminal law. He has litigated over 100 appeals before the 11th Circuit and orally argued several white-collar cases, including a multi-million dollar "Ponzi" scheme.
His additional experience includes serving as the Health Care Fraud Coordinator of the U.S. Attorney's Office, as well as a member of the Complex Litigation Unit. While serving as the Health Care Fraud Coordinator, he handled all criminal health care fraud (HCF) matters in the office and directed numerous complex HCF investigations. He participated in several parallel civil False Claim Act and qui tam whistle blower investigations. He also successfully reinforced the office's dormant criminal Health Care Fraud program, which culminated in what was formerly the largest and most complex HCF case in the history of the office.
Overstreet earned his undergraduate degree from Auburn University and his law degree from the University of Alabama School of Law.
