Criminal Defense

Unparalleled Insight in Criminal Law


Defending Your Rights

At John Harte Law, we understand criminal law better than most. Experience gained as a public defender, judge and witness to justice and the miscarriage of justice for decades gives us the knowledge to handle criminal cases of all kinds.

Our personal and professional experience  gives us the ability to defend our clients against the awesome and sometimes misguided power of the State.


Our team has successfully represented the families of individuals injured or killed while in police custody or while being pursued by law enforcement. Our results have included a settlement of several hundred thousands of dollars for the family of a prisoner who died while in State Custody and a settlement in excess of $200,000 for the passenger in a vehicle that was pursued at high speed by law enforcement. 

These cases are often complex and require special skills if a successful result is to be obtained.  Using a firm like ours provides a client with the assurance that the attorneys working on their cases have the experience, success and knowledge to bring about a just result.
