About me

For almost 25 years, Michael D. Horn has helped more than 1,000 clients avoid the severe consequences of an arrest or conviction. He has pursues every angle possible to help you secure the same results.

Mr. Horn's own experience with the law taught him that prosecutors, police officers and the FBI are more interested in obtaining a conviction than arresting the person who actually committed the crime. In 1988, he was arrested for a crime he did not commit. Mr. Horn quickly learned that not everyone accused of serious allegations is guilty. Since then, he has made it his life's work to seek justice for everyone facing a criminal accusation.
