About Me

Clifford Horwitz has won every case he has tried since 1989, but a high winning percentage alone is not why Cliff practices law. “Representing the injured, the abused and the forgotten are what I have dedicated my life to.”

Some of Cliff’s more interesting recoveries can be found by clicking on the following line: verdicts and settlements. 

Cliff has also handled pro-bono cases, cut fees when it was fair to do so, and kept the client’s interests first. 

A graduate of New Trier High School, the University of Florida, and Loyola University School of Law, Cliff was born and currently lives in Chicago, where the two most important things in his life are his family and representing the injured.

  • Robert Alan Cohen

    It would be hard to say that Cliff really needs anyone's endorsement given his high level of success. However, he has mine. I had occasion to work with Cliff when he represented another party in a commercial claim. His presence and authority were instrumental to building the trust necessary to get the deal done.
