What is considered prescription fraud in Florida?

Prescription fraud is defined as illegally having possession of drugs for personal profit or use through falsified medical prescriptions. In the state of Florida, prescription fraud can be committed in a few different ways.

Some of the most prevalent include the following:

  • Falsifying prescriptions
  • Changing prescriptions to obtain more drugs
  • Doctor shopping, or obtaining prescriptions from multiple doctors

If not properly prescribed, being caught with drugs such as Vicodin, Xanax, or Valium can have just as severe of consequences as cocaine or heroin possession. If you are found with larger quantities of drugs, that can mean further consequences. If you are charged with intent to distribute or trafficking, you could be punished with a minimum prison sentence of 25 years and face thousands of dollars in fines. These consequences are,harsh, which is why it is so crucial that you retain a strong defense and hire an experience prescription fraud lawyer.

Words cannot describe the outstanding jobMr. Gorman did on my husband’s case. The case was not simple or easy, it was just filled with terrible circumstances. An event that could have ruined the lives of our family for years to come. He somehow was able to get some extremely serious charges reduced significantly.....the outcome was far better than we were ever expecting or hoping for. If he at times cannot get back to you right away, it is because he is working his magic. We will never forget him and will forever be thankful to him.read more

Mr. Gorman is nothing short of exceptional. I went to Jeff as a second opinion as I didn't feel my lawyer had my best interest at heart. Upon consultation, I immediately hired Jeff. He was professional, precise, and extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of law. He is nothing short a miracle. Needless to say, I received no jail (facing up to 30 years). Mr. Gorman and staff always kept me informed and fought for me. I would highly recommend him. It doesn't get any better than him.read more

Mr. Gorman is not only a great attorney by in my book, he’s a magician. He defended me on a “VERY SERIOUS” case with multiple charges (I will not mentioned here). From a 25 year sentence in which 17 would had been minimum mandatory, he managed to have serious charges dropped/abandone and was able to get me a deal that I was able to do at home. I hired him on a VOP (Violation Of Probation) for the same case and he was able to have the court reinstate my probation as we had proof that I in fact did not violate probation. Lastly, I hired him once again on an accident case in which I got injured and his attorney, Erika was able to get top dollar for such. I could go on with positive feedback. Overall, I’m 100% satisfied from day one. I won’t call any other attorney as he has proven to work for you every step of the way.read more
