Brent Horst has been a true blessing for our family in a time of confusion and emotional upheaval.
Our son needed the best counsel we could find to defend him against false allegations.
Brent has proven to be a strong, confident and truly knowledgeable attorney. He handles himself with ease in the courtroom and exhibits a cool and calculating demeanor when dealing with a challenging situation.
I likened him to a modern day “Clarence Darrow” type after watching him in action defending our son. He is a no nonsense, deliberate, honest and strong presence to have on your side. Having him represent our son made all of us feel we had chosen the best attorney.
Each time we have been to court, there has been a favorable outcome, he has been able to methodically turn the tables in our son’s favor. I am confident Brent will win the day for our son and our whole family.
Thanks Brent, for everything. My best regards,
My only regret in my case is that I did not retain Mr. Horst when the false accusations were initially made against me. I sought his services after two trials, the final one ending in a guilty verdict and my being sentenced and incarcerated. He reviewed those prior cases, prepared, and filed an appeal with the TN State Court of Appeals. Statistics show that winning an appeal is a "long-shot" at best. I felt no different going in. However, Mr. Horst found the error made by the court that ultimately saved my life as I know it. We won the appeal and as the assistant D.A. stated afterward, "only Brent Horst could have won that argument". After a couple of years now, I am getting my life back. I will forever be indebted to Brent and the job that he did. A true professional and a great person.
Mr. Horst is the most amazing attorney I have even met. You can never be prepared for such horrible accusation to be made against you. Finding a attorney is just the beginning, Finding one who truly believes in you is next to impossible. Mr. Horst understood from our initial meeting that I was not guilty of the crimes I had been accused of and went straight to work proving my innocence. It was a long and challenging journey to which we did prevail in the end. It took an emotional toll on my family but we never lost faith in Mr. Horst nor did he ever for one minute doubt my innocence . He will always remain in our hearts and prayers. Thank you will never be enough. He gave me back my life. He gave me back my family.
