Joseph Owens

Senior Partner

Attorney Joseph Owens earned his bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from Upper Iowa University. Immediately after, he went on to earn his master’s degree in criminology from the University of Alabama. This allowed him to become very familiar with criminal law, as well as common misconceptions about criminals by the government, society, and prosecution. Attorney Owens completed his Juris Doctor at the University of Baltimore, and then continued on to earn a master of laws degree in trial advocacy from Temple University.

Since that time, Attorney Owens has dedicated his career to helping individuals who are facing charges for any kind of criminal offense. He is admitted to practice in Maryland and Washington, D.C. as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims and various state and federal courts.
