Review Joseph Jordan

  • Don't waste your time or money!

    1.0 star

    Posted by Zane Josi

    I hired Joseph Jordan to defend me against 17 charges of sexual assault and domestic violence. At first he seemed interested and helpful, until he got a hold of my money. That's when things changed drastically. He charged me $21000 to defend my case of which he took $14000 of it. He advised me to waive my article 32 hearing which I did. I spoke with him 4 times on the phone. He was rude and unprofessional and he complained about his own family problems more than listen to what I was saying. He finally told me that I must plead guilty to all charges because the evidence was stacked against me. I fired Mr Jordan and hired another attorney who did get me off all charges. Mr Jordan does not care about you, he only wants your money! If you want a Trial lawyer then this guy is not for you. He will take your money and try and plead out with the prosecution as quickly as possible. Save yourself and find a real Trial lawyer!

    Joseph L. Jordan’s response: “This client was in pre-trial confinement during the whole time I represented him. I was the second attorney he hired. It was difficult to get in touch with him and his Coast Guard Defense Counsel routed most of my communications to him. At my direction we secured a navy investigator to actively hunt down leads I identified in this case. I spent over 74 hours analyzing, reading, viewing and listening to material and evidence regarding this case. My staff spent another 24 hours on this case working and analyzing materials. At his request, an itemized invoice of work completed was provided to the client. I do not apologize for the fees incurred because they were earned. The case had not been referred to trial yet. However, I had already prepared and drafted a motion to be filed for his release from confinement the day the case was released from trial. I was let go before that could occur. When the evidence appears overwhelming, I advised this client that a plea is always on the table and that he should consider it. I also said that we were actively tracking down leads and interviewing witnesses. We continued to pursue leads up until the time I was let go. I also advised that even if a plea was offered we can withdraw at any point. When a client tells me know "I want to fight" than that is what I do and that is what I did in his case. Sometimes hard discussions have to occur with clients. They don't want to hear the worst case scenario. I am the type of attorney that does not beat around the bush. I tell you like it is. I tell you how the evidence will be presented to the jury and what the problems are with it. Any of my clients, past or present will tell you that. I will not betray the confidence or the evidence in this case. I am glad he received his desired result. I wish him well in his Coast Guard Career.”

    Mr. Jordan came into my case early and quickly began analyzing the case details and remained on top of developments as they occurred. Coming into the trial Mr. Jordan diligently worked to identify the inconsistencies and flaws in the allegations and brought on civilian experts to further uncover the truth. In court Mr. Jordan adjusted the defense to the tone of the government and accurately assessed the panel's reactions to the evidence. In the end a full acquittal was hard fought and won....my career of almost 18 years was saved, no confinement, no dishonorable discharge and my family remained whole. I would definitely recommend Mr. Jordan if you are facing persecution in the military justice system that is geared against you.

    I was under investigation for article 120 rape. I searched for lawyers online & came across Mr. Jordan's page. I called him very early on a Sunday morning & we spoke briefly about my case, I decided to hire him based on the other cases he had won. I was glad I did he flew out to Germany & did an extremely exceptional job on my case & now I can go on with my military career. Mr. Jordan is the lawyer you need to hire, he is aggressive & well educated when it comes to handling military cases.

    I'm extremely happy in my decision to hire Mr. Jordan. I was called in for questioning regarding allegations of assault and cruelty and maltreatment. I was eventually charged at a special court martial. Mr. Jordan skillfully negotiated with the government to reduce the case to a summary court martial. While I was facing a bad conduct discharge and a year in confinement, I walked away from the case with merely a reduction to E-4 and was eventually separated with a general discharge under honorable conditions. Mr. Jordan was extremely responsive to my questions during this process, and did not sugarcoat anything in order to allow me to make informed decisions throughout the life of the case. Due to his advocacy, I am able to go on and obtain meaningful civilian employment. Thank you Mr. Jordan!

  • Sexual Assault

    I retained Mr. Joseph Jordan to defend my son, who was falsely accused of sexual assault. Though his experience, vast knowledge and sincere dedication, Mr. Jordan successfully saved my sons (life) and military
    career by achieving a verdict of NOT GUILTY.
    It is with great appreciation and respect that I highly recommend Mr. Joseph Jordan, Defense Attorney, he IS the Professional Choice, and our family could never thank him enough.

    I spent 15,000$ (I even sold my car!) for him to talk for 2 minutes. Before hiring him (and while I was still paying) he was absolutely sure he would kick ass and win, but 10 minutes before the trial he asks me "so what are you going to do if you go to jail?".
    I spent 3 months in jail and now I'm a sex offender. My carreer and life is ruined and the only thing that kept me from winning the case was the fact that the CID falsified the report (and there were proof of it!!) and my ex-wife lies.
    They should have a policy "if you don't win you get all the money back"

    Joseph L. Jordan’s response: “I have no idea who this client is. Frankly, I don't believe this was a client of mine. I never guarantee a win. I certainly would not ask a client what they would do if they go to jail merely minutes before going to jail....or at any time. The very fact that the individual is brave enough to write disparaging words, yet hide behind anonymity says a lot about the credibility of this review. The only thing we guarantee at the Jordan UCMJ Law Group is seasoned, well researched, , aggressive advocacy. We are meticulous in our case preparation. We work hard. Prison is always a possibility. I would never ask "what are you going to do if you go to jail?" Instead, well in advance of the trial, i would explain what to expect in a worse case scenario. Most clients actually ask that question up front. Clients always want assurances. "You can win this right?" Based on the case, I will give them assurances on how good their case is, but I will never guarantee a win. Have we lost cases. That was not due to a shortage of hard work, or knowledge. No one can dictate what a jury is going to do. You can advocate, present the best case possible, but the jury decides at the end of the day. There is always risk when one goes to trial.”

    While reviewing my military records I found that I was being investigated by OSI, which could result in jail time and a dishonorable discharge. After making a few phone calls Mr. Jordan came highly recommended to me by a friend who had hired him for a similar case. Mr. Jordan advised I invoke my Article 31 rights and remain silent. During my initial interview OSI told me I would need to provide a DNA sample, which I did not feel comfortable with. After speaking to Mr. Jordan about their request he promptly contacted OSI and made them present him with the regulations that gave them authority to collect my DNA. From this point forward I heard nothing from the military side about my investigation, which was very unnerving not knowing what was going to happen to my military career. This investigation was part of a witch hunt where the government was looking for a scape goat to take the fall for several unfounded allegations. I would speak with Mr. Jordan once every couple of weeks about my case, and he would always offer me reassurance about the situation. Mr. Jordan consistently contacted base legal to ask what my status was, and fight to have the investigation against me dropped. This investigation prevented me from reenlisting and receiving a hefty bonus. Just one week prior to my bonus expiring I was presented with a LOR and the investigation was over, and I was able to reenlist and receive my bonus. I know that my investigation ended on a positive note for me because of Mr. Jordan's hard work and dedication, if it were not for him repeatedly contacting legal I believe they would have let this case drag on for many more months. Mr. Jordan saved my career and kept money in my pocket. He comes highly recommended.

    My son faced a summary court martial. Joseph Jordan did his homework. He fought hard for my son. He ensured my son was given a fair sentence. Most importantly, he ensured my son did not receive a dishonorable discharge.

    Mr. Jordan represented me in my court appearance, where I was wrongly accused of a crime, in which my livelihood, retirement, and freedom were in jeopardy.

    Our first meeting was thorough and in-depth and we discussed my case for 90 minutes, only later did I find out that he was at his wedding rehearsal. This shows that his dedication to his clients is extraordinary. He could have easily asked what the facts were in the case and set up an appointment the following week, when it was more convenient for him. Mr. Jordan was concerned for my well-being and was the first person that brought me calm in my time of need. He was confident, dedicated, diligent, and worked long hours, and was committed to ensuring justice was done.

    I most heartily recommend Mr. Jordan as a defense attorney, he not only won my case but I feel I have made a lasting friend.

    It is has been my experience that one does not walk though life without at one time or another having to face the graver circumstances of life regarding his or herself, or a family member or loved one.There are but a few individuals who have dedicated their life and professional practice to see that the rights of individual and the accused are defended and upheld as our unwavering Constitution of the United States promises. I recently had a family member accused of a crime. Through my research I was fortunate enough to make contact with attorney Joseph Jordan. I have worked in criminal defense as an Investigator and mitigation specialist for seventeen years. For the first time I had to experience the reality of how high the stakes are for all involved in a criminal legal action as a family member. Joseph took the bull by horns and single handedley saved my family members career and secured his already upstanding reputation.Thank you once again Joseph Jordan.
