Experienced, Knowledgeable Criminal Defense In Federal Courts

If you're facing federal charges, your lawyer must have experience with federal trials. State and federal courts are very different arenas, each with its own procedures. It takes experience and skill to fight federal prosecutors and agencies such as the IRS, DEA, FBI, FDIC or Department of Justice (DOJ).

I'm attorney Joseph M. Horn, Esq., and I have the federal criminal defense experience to protect your rights. I know what's at stake in these cases and will work hard to minimize any penalties in yours.

When I examine the prosecution's case and the evidence, I'll also find out whether you've been overcharged for a crime you did not commit. It's not unusual for prosecutors to overcharge people in the hopes of scaring them into giving evidence against the person the government really wants to convict. I won't let the government bully you with these scare tactics.

A Conviction Can Ruin Your Career And Your Future

If you're convicted of a federal crime, your life will never be the same. You'll be subject to harsher sentences, fines and other penalties than in state criminal cases. It's more likely that you'll receive a prison sentence if you are convicted. Professionals may lose their license and their job.

I can defend you against a wide variety of federal charges, such as:

Some cases include both state and federal charges. I can represent you in state and federal courts, which means that you don't need to hire another lawyer if you're charged with federal crimes. This is more efficient and less expensive.
