A formidable Alabama criminal defense lawyer regardless of the crime or the stakes involved

Along with partners Jim Parkman and Martin Adams, Mr. White was part of the legal defense for former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy. That case was one of the most significant corporate fraud cases in legal history. The United States Department of Justice accused Scrushy of breaking certain laws related to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act designed to hold corporate executives more accountable. Scrushy faced accusations related to more than 2 billion dollars in accounting fraud. Thanks to an aggressive defense by Parkman White, LLP , in 2005 Scrushy was acquitted. This case proved-once again-that the reputation for excellence is well deserved for the legal team at Parkman White, LLP.
