We are aggressive, experienced litigators.

We can negotiate but only from strength.

We fight for you at all times.


The Horowitz firm provides the highest level of no compromise representation.

We review many,
but accept very few cases.

Our clients get personal attention and the highest level of legal work.

We have no "low level" associates.  All of our attorneys and paralegals are top quality professionals dedicated to excellence. 

For example, if you have an accident case, we have a licensed chiropractor on staff to review your medical files.  

If you have a real estate case, we have a lawyer who is also a licensed real estate broker handle your case.

If you have a criminal case, our lead criminal defense attorney will be a State of California certified  specialist.

Aggressive representation

We listen to and respect our clients.
