Stephen McGuckin


Stephen McGuckin is born and bred on the Jersey Shore. A pioneering attorney with regard to the Mental Health and Veterans Diversionary Programs, his mission is to represent the “whole person,” treating each and every client with dignity and respect. From a legal standpoint, this innovative and person-based approach provides his clients with creative and practical solutions to reach the best possible outcome in their cases. These solutions include diversionary programs and opportunities to address the underlying issues that led to the charges in question. He has found that once defendants address mental health issues, PTSD, drug and alcohol abuse, and childhood traumas, the prosecution and judiciary are more amenable to favorable outcomes.

Defendants need a fighter. As a U.S. Constitution enthusiast, Steve has the experience and knowledge needed to defend your case to the end. The 4th Amendment is your inalienable right to freedom from unlawful search and seizure. Steve and his team will analyze your case from investigation to arrest to prosecution and attack any and all constitutional missteps with the ultimate goal to secure a dismissal or downgrade of your criminal matter.

Whether you are facing criminal charges, termination of parental rights, injury in the workplace, or wish to secure a better future for your loved ones through your hard work, Stephen McGuckin is here for you.

What People Say About Our Firm

Steve is a lawyer who follows the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would want to be treated! Steve did a world-class job for me and kept me informed along the way about what to expect with my case. The communication was outstanding and I’m sure that I got the best possible outcome by using his services. Highly recommended!

By far Steve is the best lawyer. Our back was up against the wall dealing with a restraining order and things weren’t looking too good but Steve never gave up. Thanks to his hard work things worked in our favor. Hopefully, we won’t ever need a lawyer again but if we did Stephen McGuckin is the one to call to get the job done.
