Mike Horn is a great lawyer. I highly recommend him. He came highly recommended by the personnel in the Queens County Criminal Court.
I was arrested in October of 2012, I refused the Breathalyzer and was charged with Felony DWI. My license was to be suspended immediately for refusing the Breathalyzer. I have a prior conviction for DWI and the consequences of this arrest could have been life changing.
I need my license for work. I drive all day for my job and now getting so close to retirement it would have been devastating to me and my family, to lose my license and my job.
Mike got all of the charges dismissed. I am not knowledgeable enough to understand the legal procedure but I do know that he was on top of his game, he knew the relevant case law and argued vehemently for me. WE WON!!! He didn’t give up and he didn’t back down. The criminal charges were dismissed against me!!
If that was not enough he was also able to argue to the Department of Motor Vehicles magistrate that the police inappropriately demanded the Breathalyzer. That case was dismissed too! I kept my license.
As I said Mike Horn is a great lawyer and is worth triple his fees.

Mr. Horn is a TOP criminal attorney in the Queens County court system. He is very knowledgeable in his field and is extremely dedicated to his clients. He is also very well known within the court system and this helps him move the case along expeditiously. Mr. Horn gets things done. He thinks out of the box and this is exactly what is needed in order to successfully try cases. Mr. Horn very sensitive to his client's often difficult situations and we will recommend him to anyone in need.

I was wrongfully accused of assaulting a police officer and facing seven years in prison.
But Michael Horn worked tirelessly to convince the court and prosecutors that there was more to my case and the assault charges were dropped, which for anyone unfamiliar with the Queens criminal court system is like a miracle because the cops always have the right of way in Queens, especially in court.
So I can't help but feel lucky that I had Mike representing me. Simply put, he was the best person for the jobâ€”not only is he adept at how the system works, he was well respected by the court clerks, judges and prosecutors and I am convinced this all played a critical role in Mikeâ€™s ability to get my case moving in the right direction.
Equally as important, however, was his ability to put me at ease with the legal process.
When I first came to Mike Horn, things looked bleak. Given the outrageous claims made by the police officer and my ignorance of the law I was convinced I was heading to prison. Mike was able to get me to relax, convinced me that everything was going to be fine, and in the end he was right.
Thank you Michael Horn!!

Saved my life (more than once). When the cops and the DA said I was guilty, he was willing to fight hard for me and got me an acquittal.
