JosephHorowitzPhotoI am currently the owner of my own law firm where I practice mainly in the areas of criminal defense, family law and personal injury law. I was an Assistant District Attorney in Allegheny County for almost nine years. As a narcotics prosecutor, I tried complex narcotics cases on a regular basis. Additionally, I was the ADA who ran Drug Court for the office. I have taken the skills I learned as a prosecutor and use them to benefit my clients accused of crimes. I am able to give all my clients the personal attention that their cases deserve. I have tried and won numerous jury and non-jury trials. I represent people charged with DUI, drug offenses, traffic offenses, robbery and all other crimes. My approach to representation gives my clients an unmatched level of confidence and security. My clients know that I leave no stone unturned, and I will provide the highest quality representation possible. My goal is to get my clients the best possible outcome based on their unique situation and my clients know how seriously I take this responsibility.

Since leaving the District Attorney’s office, I have taken the skills I leaned in the criminal courts and used them to vigorously represent clients in family court. Child custody, PFA’s and child support can be highly stressful situations. I provide the same level of representation to my family law clients that I do for my criminal clients. I know how important these issues can be, and I represent for my clients with an unmatched desire to see that their rights are protected. My family court clients know that they are getting someone who will fight for them and their rights.

I also have experience representing victims who were seriously injured due to other people’s negligence. Prior to moving to Pittsburgh, I practiced law with my father. Together we represented personal injury clients. Now that I have my own practice, I have been able to return to this area of law that I always enjoyed. Unlike the larger personal injury firms, your case will be my top priority. I purposefully keep this area of my practice limited so that every injured person receives the individual attention they deserve. I strive to get every dollar from the insurance companies to compensate my clients for their pain and suffering. You will not feel like a number at my law office. You will feel like a person who is getting the attention and time that someone who has suffered a serious injury deserves.

In addition to my legal practice, I serve as the President of the Board of Commissioners in South Fayette Township. I was recently reelected to my second term and it is my pleasure to serve my community. I have three sons who are all active in sports and school in South Fayette. Balancing my family, my civic duties and my law practice provides me with a healthy lifestyle that benefits all my clients. I hope that you will see the benefits of working with an attorney who has the time and desire to focus and you and your problems.
