WE as a family have used Richard Hornsby twice now because he is a keeper. He gets things done quickly and efficiently. He even advised us on things we did not even pay for ( we hope he does not mind us saying that ). We will definitely use him in the future should we need an attorney again.
Mr Hornsby is not afraid to go to trial and is always looking for the best result for his client even if it means a lot of extra work. He is very good at negotiating and gave us advice that significantly reduced the sentence from the minimum mandatory requirements which was something every other attorney we had spoken to said was impossible. He was truly a miracle worker in the case I hired him on and I would never consider hiring another attorney. If you want an attorney you can communicate with easily, knows the judicial system like the back of his hand, and will fight for your life hire Richard Hornsby.
Mr. Hornsby was a fantastic lawyer. I live in California and was visiting the Orlando, Florida area. I left my vacation right after my arrest to return home. Mr. Hornsby was able to appear in court on my behalf so I never had to return to Florida for any reason. He kept me informed all everything going on in court and really felt like he was fighting for me. He handled my case with care and ease. Completely worth his weight in gold. I am glad to have had him on my side durning a hard time, I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs legal representation.
Attorney Richard Hornsby is an excellent lawyer and counselor. He handled my matter with prompt, decisive attention and set me at ease that he was working with my best interests at heart. Armed with the law he was prepared immediately to have something dismissed (a disorderly charge) given the alleged facts of my case and the case law, so that my other issue (an alleged trespass) could be attacked after being wrongly accused. My matter was set for trial and Mr. Hornsby was prepared to represent me fully and advocate on my behalf. Ultimately, and thankfully, my case was dismissed. And I have not forgotten his hard work. I'd recommend Mr. Hornsby without reservation to anyone in need of a dogged advocate who will be truthful with you in helping analyze your case.
Mr. Hornsby handled my case swiftly with precision, dedication, and true honesty. In total I was dealing with the legal process for less than 5 months with only 2 court appearances. I was in a very sticky situation and he bluntly gave me all of the options to proceed. I was not willing to go to trial based on the charges I was facing and he dauntlessly fought to obtain the plea deal I was offered. The states attorney kept trying to worsen the deal at the last moment, while in court, and he vigorously fought to keep it reasonable despite the annoyance it brought to the states attorney. I was facing 4 felonies and 1 misdemeanor all carrying serious prison time but only received 2 years probation and adjudication was withheld (no felony conviction). While I was hoping for a better plea deal, I was also not willing to gamble it all, 2 years probation and adjudication withheld is GREAT considering the alternative. I was a difficult client to deal with and constantly called him with my, along with my families, questions and concerns. He was never too busy to talk with me or my family (with my permission) and lay everything on the table very honestly and I sincerely thank him for that. He offers a payment plan for those who cannot pay for everything up front which was very helpful. If anyone finds themselves or a family member in legal trouble, in my opinion, the best thing you can do is call Mr. Hornsby! It was the best phone call my sister-in-law EVER made because he saved my future through his hard work, commitment, and audacious attitude.
I truly cannot thank you enough Mr. Hornsby for all that you have done for me and my co-defendant.
I was going through a personal domestic case with Richard Hornsby, who helped me get through a very stressful time. Before trial, I contacted Richard who was very helpful with information of what I should do as next steps in the court case. This was very appreciated as this was my first time in this situation. Richard also contacted me numerous times to not only check to see how I was feeling but also to gather information needed for our trial. Richard was able to represent me in court which was great on my behalf. I would definitely recommend Richard Hornsby's services to family or friends in need of a lawyer.
I spent two weeks interviewing attorneys when I needed to hire representation for a violation of probation case with four alleged charges against my boyfriend. With VOPs, the burden of proof on the state is even lighter as there is no jury trial but the discretion of the judge only so it felt like an uphill climb. I couldn't just hire any attorney and needed one of the best.
Mr. Hornsby had excellent reviews and even posts results of past cases on his website for your review which is quite rare. I was nervous but had high expectations. Mr. Hornsby not only met those expectations but far succeeded them. He doesn’t waste your time and will not settle for less than the best possible outcome for your situation.
He was very assertive and impressive going in with all guns blazing at the bond hearing; the state floundered and the judge dismissed all four VOP charges. I am beyond thrilled at Mr. Hornsby’s representation. I hope I am never in a situation where I need to hire a criminal defense attorney again, but if I am, the first and only person I will contact for legal representation will be Mr. Hornsby. Thanks again! <3
Richard Hornsby is very knowledgeable and obtained an excellent result in my case. His legal fees were very reasonable.
I was arrested in Florida for the first time ever in my life and was extremely scared and nervous to await the outcome of my case. After searching and reading reviews of local attorneys I came across Mr. Hornsby and thank God I did! He completely took the rains and made me feel very comfortable. Do be patient with him and trust him even when you do not hear from him for a while. It can be extremely hard doing so, however, I assure you he is on top of his game and getting things done as quickly as possible! Mr. Hornsby has gotten my case dismissed and is now working on getting it expunged as well. I highly recommend Mr. Hornsby to anyone and for any case level.
Reliable, knowledgeable and very professional. After speaking with Richard for the first time I knew he would be the best choice for me. He took my case and within two weeks it was solved in my favor. I highly recommend him.
