Committed Defense In State And Federal Drug Cases

Whether you're a juvenile caught smoking pot or an adult charged with trafficking prescription drugs, you now need an experienced, aggressive defense lawyer. Even a conviction for marijuana possession can have serious consequences, including the loss of your driver's license, fines, drug rehab and even jail time. If you have a professional license, your career could also be in trouble.

Talk to an attorney as soon as possible. At the law firm of Joseph M. Horn, Esq., I provide state and federal drug crimes defense in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. I know that any drug conviction can negatively affect your future in many ways. With years of experience as a New Jersey police officer before I became a criminal defense lawyer, I'm good at evaluating drug case evidence and police procedure. You can trust that I know when to negotiate with the prosecutor and when to go to trial and fight.

I know that this is a frightening time. You may be scared for your future — or your child's future. You can count on me to take the mystery and fear out of the process. I'll keep you informed every step of the way.

Firsthand Experience With Drug Arrests And Search And Seizure

Issues like search and seizure are important parts of drug crime defense. Did the police have probable cause to stop you and search you, your home or your car? By reading the arrest report, I'll know if your constitutional rights were violated. When this happens, I'll argue for the resulting evidence to be suppressed, which may mean that the charges will be reduced or dropped.

I take cases involving all types of street and prescription drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, meth, MDMA, Xanax, lorazepam, Vicodin, oxycodone and OxyContin. You can come to me with state and federal drug charges, including:

  • Possession
  • Possession with intent to sell/distribution
  • Trafficking
  • Cultivation or manufacturing
  • DUI drugs

I can also defend you against related charges such as conspiracy or money laundering. I have the federal court experience necessary to handle these types of cases.
