Aggressive Criminal Defense Providing
Superior Legal Representation to Protect Your Rights

As a former police officer with practical on-the-street experience, I've seen firsthand the mistakes people make when they are charged with crimes and do not understand their rights. If you've been charged, you need a lawyer to protect your rights and guide you personally through the criminal justice system.

At the Law Offices of Joseph M. Horn, I help people fight back against state and federal charges in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. I've seen countless people in your situation, and I know that you're scared and probably unsure about what comes next. I'll listen to you and explain your options in regular English. We'll also talk about the pros and cons of each one. You can rely on my street-smarts and experience from my careers in law enforcement and criminal defense.

With more than 20 years as a police officer, I know if your constitutional rights were violated because I have a complete understanding of police procedure, probable cause, and search and seizure. I'm not like every other lawyer because I can review police reports with a policeman's eye and tell what should be included and what has been left out. I can usually quickly assess a case by reading the police report. I'll give you my honest opinion of your case upfront. We'll talk about your goals, whether that's staying out of jail or fighting the charges to the end.
