  • Profile

A well-respected federal and state litigator, Charles Horn is a partner at The Russell Friedman Law Group, LLP with more than 200 verdicts to his credit.

Beginning his legal career as a Deputy County Attorney for Nassau County, Attorney Horn went on to supervise the county's federal litigation unit. There, he and his unit aggressively defended allegations of constitutional deprivations, ranging from discrimination to the unlawful use of deadly force.

After leaving the county to enter private practice, Attorney Horn was personally solicited by various municipalities to handle some of their most complicated matters.

During his 26-year career, Attorney Horn has developed an extensive practice representing individuals who have been the subject to false arrest, malicious prosecution, and excessive force. As trial counsel, he has secured verdicts as high as $5 million for his clients.

With his foundation in the federal and state trial courts, Attorney Horn went on to expand his civil practice to include complex commercial litigation, RICO, and health care-related controversies; he has been handling high profile litigation ever since.

While practicing in the private sector, Attorney Horn joined the United States Army as a commissioned officer in the Army National Guard Judge Advocate Corps in 2004. Shortly thereafter, he volunteered for active duty in Iraq. In recognition of his service in Iraq, he was awarded the Bronze Star, the Combat Action Badge, and the Army Achievement Medal.

Lieutenant Colonel Horn is certified at a Military Judge an assigned to New York State Joint Forces Headquarters. In addition to his private practice and military service, he is also the Deputy Village Attorney performing prosecutorial and general legal services to the Village of Lynbrook since 1998.

Attorney Horn earned his Juris Doctor from St. John's University School of Law in 1996 after earning two undergraduate degrees from Lehigh University in 1992.
