About Me

Joseph Jordan, Attorney at Law, is based out of the Fort Hood & Killeen, Texas area.  He is an accomplished, experienced Criminal Defense Attorney, who specializes in defending ALL service members against violations of the UCMJ.  He believes in getting Justice for Soldiers, Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, Airmen and Marines worldwide.


Joseph Jordan has successfully defended service members of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard at military courts-martials. He has established a successful track record with multiple, high profile, and complicated military justice cases.  Joseph has achieved worldwide success defending Soldiers against allegations of rape, sexual assault, attempted murder, and manslaughter.  He has also successfully defended against various types of white-collar crimes. Joseph’s aggressive, uncompromising, blue-collar approach demands results for his clients.


Joseph Jordan has over 10 years of experience in the U.S Army.  He served as an enlisted Soldier for three years, giving him valuable insight into the day-to-day life of an enlisted service member.  His service as an Officer and Judge Advocate, afforded him opportunities to advise on legal matters at the highest levels of command.  Joseph has first hand experience on the inner workings of various Command UCMJ and Administrative decision-making processes, advising numerous Commanders on all levels of military justice.  Joseph has served in Germany, Korea, Kuwait and all over the continental United States.


Joseph is an accomplished trial lawyer, successfully leveraging his experience as a former Army prosecutor to the benefit of his military clients.  As a prosecutor, he practiced in two of the toughest and busiest jurisdictions in the Army; Fort Hood, Texas and 2nd Infantry Division, in South Korea.  Joseph brings a wealth of knowledge and resources to the representation of his clients.  As defense counsel, his cases have been reported in numerous media outlets to include Fox News, ABC News, the Wall Street Journal as well as numerous local and military affiliated newspapers.


Our goal is securing a Not Guilty Verdict for you.  First, we accomplish this by aggressively investigating each detail of the case.  Mr. Jordan visits the scene.  He asks the hard questions and he never gives up until he has the answer he seeks. Second, Mr. Jordan thoroughly cross-examines each government witness.  Thorough cross-examination can only come from aggressive investigation.  Cross-examination will expose the glaring weaknesses in the military prosecutors case, and seed doubt in the panel members mind.  Each seed of doubt is a step towards NOT GUILTY!  Lastly, Mr. Jordan passionately advocates your case in closing.  He wraps the case up for the panel.  He tells your story!  Trials are emotional dogfights and the stakes are extremely high.  Through aggressive, hard-hitting advocacy, Mr. Jordan will achieve the best result possible in your case.


As you navigate this site, you will notice Mr. Jordan’s experience, case results and testimonials.  You will notice his Global Reach.  A current list of all of the places around the globe he has traveled to represent his past clients is listed on this site. The News & Events tab will show some of the cases he is involved with, along with several other high profile military cases around the globe. Lastly, you will notice that Mr. Jordan is a dedicated advocate for your cause.  Mr. Jordan does not back down from a fight.  You can never go wrong with him by your side in a court martial!
