A Stand Out Among His Peers
I am a civil trial lawyer with over 40 years’ trial experience. When a very dear client of mine needed a criminal defense lawyer, we retained Joe. He was knowledgeable and candid but comforting in his assessments, all along the way. He cared about his client as a person, not just as a “case.” Despite an obviously busy practice, he was accessible, even during “off hours,” and answered my many questions promptly and patiently. It was quite apparent that he has earned the respect of those at each level of the criminal justice system -- law enforcement, prosecution, and judiciary. He achieved a favorable and fair resolution in our case. I recommend him highly.

Strongly recommend Joe Horn, an extremely knowledgeable attorney
Joe Horn is an extremely knowledgeable attorney and well versed in all matters of the law and litigation. When we were recently interviewing attorneys for a specific situation, what separated Joe Horn from everyone else was his long and highly decorated career as a police officer. Immediately, Joe understood what transpired, why it happened and most importantly how to remedy this situation in an efficient and professional matter. When Joe Horn finished our case, there were no charges, no violations, and apologies from the source of the problem requiring us to hire an attorney. Joe Horn has since handled other matters for our family, all of them with excellent results. We strongly recommend you meet with Joe Horn in your next attorney search, you will be very thankful after the fact that you hired him.

Hire this lawyer.
My husband Jose and I have such gratitude to Mr Horn for representing us in a case that was a major deal in our lives. My husband's work friend gave us Mr Horn's name. It is scary when you need a lawyer and we are so happy that we met with him. He was always professional. He answered all our questions along the way. He even answered my father's questions (with our permission) through multiple phone conversations. Mr Horn offered us all the tools available and left the decision up to us. He never added on fees or extras services. Another thing that assured me we picked the correct lawyer was his appearance. He dressed for success and his office was organized. We are thankful to Mr Horn and also for the outcome of our case.

Knowledgeable and Aggressive
I can't begin to even thank Mr. Horn for the legal help he gave me and my son with a situation my son had in criminal court. We appeared many times and he even suggested we go back again (at no extra charge) to get a better result. He worked aggressively on my son's behalf and made a very difficult situation so much easier with his hard work and efforts. He was very aware and compassionate with what we were all thinking and feeling and explained the process patiently. I know I drove him crazy with all my questions a mother has but he smiled and explained it. He answered questions at night and on weekends too, which I didn't expect.

Joe is incredible
Joe is not only very personlable but his back ground is law enforcement so he is so incredibly knowledgeable of all law. He connected immediately with other attorneys and prosecutors that everyone was put at ease and it made for a pleasant experience as unpleasant as it could have been. He got me exactly want we wanted and protected me according to my rights. I recommend him to all who I know.

Excellent Criminal Attorney
Joseph Horn is an excellent defense attorney. Mr. Horn was retained to represent a family member who was in a jam and facing jail time. Mr. Horn was smart, compassionate, motivated and extremely savvy and experienced when it came to the legal proceedings. We felt extremely comfortable discussing difficult questions with Mr. Horn. Our family member went to court and the result was paying a small fine and no jail time. I would highly recommend this attorney for criminal cases.

My excellent experience
I hired Mr Horn several years ago, and to be very honest here , I was skeptical about lawyers. My opinion has changed ( for the positive) . Mr Horn was not only professional and completely competent, and during this difficult time in my life Mr Horn showed me compassion. I was not just a docket number to him , and for that reason, I will always be grateful to Mr Horn

The best private attorney!
Honestly, the last person to review Mr. Horn must be more then an ass by far by just reading the review posted and must of forgot to take their medication before posting. Myself and everyone else who knows Mr Joseph Horn will totally disagree to the negative review posted. Mr. Horn has meet every expectation I can think of. I have worked with Mr. Horn various times and he is very professional and will work with his clients any time of the day. I have worked with Mr. Horn for over 1 year. He's Very affordable and will work with you in every aspect of the case, even late at night during off hours. He is a previous police officer for Mahwah NJ and knows the law in and out. He is very honest, reliable, dependable and affordable. He even buys all his hondas from Mahwah Honda! Extremely loyal.. Mr horn has great connections, give him a call whether you need legal advise, legal representation or even an affordable Honda at a presidents award dealership 3 years in a row. Lastly if your on the fence who you should offer your business to Mr. Joseph horn is the way to go by far!
