    • I recommend Matthew Horak.
    • I hired Matthew 6-12 months ago.
    • Matthew handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Horak, helped me on a case that was pinned against me for no reason. I was pinned with a "Prostitution" charge. I feared that I may be doing some time for something that I did not do. I am 22 and ambitious. The government needs more money and more guys locked up. I talked with many lawyers and Mr. Horak listened, gracefully. He pointed out many flaws in the case, during my consultation with him. I hired him and it was HISTORY! The cops/government could not find a piece of evidence to convict me. Mr. Horak got the case dismissed. I truly appreciate this man. Thanks Mr. Horak!

    • I recommend Matthew Horak.
    • I hired Matthew 1-3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my DUI / DWI matter.

    I would recommend Matt Horak to anyone that asked. He is very intuitive and dedicated to his clients.

    I was charged with DUI and the case was taken to court. He obliterated the DA's case and won my freedom for me. I thank God for Matt Horak, he is the best!!! All of my friends and family now know his name. I was a client from out of state and he made the whole process easy for me. GREAT MAN!!

    • I recommend Matthew Horak.
    • I hired Matthew more than 3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    After speaking with a couple of other 'big-name' lawyers around Houston, I chose Matt after a very strong initial consultation followed by a keen interest in my case. During the consultation, Matt was interested in hearing the whole story from my perspective (while taking diligent notes), and provided excellent, insightful feedback. Our initial consultation went much longer than I expected, but Matt never once tried to rush the process and spent a significant amount of time answering my legal questions. After hiring Matt, he was thorough in his research and building a case. On my first court date I didn't expect much to happen - as we were prepared for the long haul. However, after spending some time with the DA with his prepared arguments, the DA agreed to drop my class B misdemeanor immediately. Almost as quickly, Matt took care of my class A misdemeanor with the agreement that I would "stay out of trouble" for 90 days. In the end I had one terrible night in jail (when arrested), 1 dismissed charge, and 1 charge deferred and sealed. Thanks to Matt, that one night in jail is now 'life experience' instead of a nasty scar on my record. Three years after hiring Matt I learned truly how important this case was, as I would not have been able to take the same career path with a conviction.

    Matt did a great job on my case and gave me excellent advise. When my case had to go to trail he was very prepared and confident that we would win and we did. I would recommend Matt to anyone that needs a lawyer because he fights for you until the end.

    Matt was successful in getting my grandsons DWI dismissed. He was prepared to take it to trial if necessary. We, of course, were very anxious about the outcome and he was very reassuring. Matt knows the law!
    Matt's fees are very reasonable and he always returns your calls and/or emails.
    I would definitely recommend Matt Horak and would not hesitate to use him again.
    Thank you Matt !

    • I recommend Matthew Horak.
    • I hired Matthew more than 3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my Federal Crime matter.

    I suddenly got caught up in a Federal case and I was very nervous who to trust. At my first meeting with Matt I already felt I could talk to him. He listened and took thorough notes. I always felt he was on my side. He kept me updated and understood my frustration. He is very professional and when my sentencing day came I felt he had my back completely. I will refer my friends and family to him if they ever need legal represenation.

    • I recommend Matthew Horak.
    • I hired Matthew more than 3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    First and foremost i would like to thank Matt for getting my DWI dropped.

    I found Matt online and decided to use him to defend my DWI case due to the feedback I read. Matt was extremely responsive which i was very pleased about. Every time i had a concern i would contact him and he would practically respond immediately. Matt handled everything and kept me informed of where i needed to be and when.

    I was very pleased with Matt and would use him again although I pray i dont have to...
