    Matt is an excellent defense attorney and was fair minded as a prosecutor. I also worked with him at the Trial Lawyers College, and he has even taken time out of his busy schedule to help other lawyers prepare their cases. He fights for his clients. Any one would be fortunate to have him as their defense attorney.

  • Jimmy Joe Ortiz Jr.

    I endorse this lawyer. Matt Horak is a strong advocate for his clients. I have used Matt on co-defendant cases, because I knew the client would be well represented. As a former prosecutor, Matt is very comfortable in a courtroom and in front of a jury.
