I was referred to Bob Horn in March 2014. I hired him to represent my son who was pulled over in Wyoming for speeding and having a small amount of marijuana....(I live in a different state). My son was incarcerated until a bond could be delivered. I spoke with Bob who made promises about meeting with my son personally at a particular time and arranging for his bail. Bob failed to let me know that at the time of our initial conversation, he was vacationing in South America...as a result, he did not not make it back in time to meet my son or to arrange for his release on a timely basis. My son spent an extra 1-2 days in jail as a result. I tried on several occasions to reach Bob after our initial conversation(s) only to find out that he was traveling. After repeated calls to his office, I was directed to his son (also an attorney), who was backing up his father from a different state!
Upon arriving back in Wyoming, Bob informed me that his office was actually in a different city and that delivering a bond for my son's release would require driving an extra 3 hours to deliver the bond. Despite his tardiness and broken promis(es) Bob thought it best to charge his full hourly rate just for driving!
As soon as my son was released, we fired Bob Horn and found much more competent representation.
I am incensed that Bob Horn was not forthright with us during our initial conversation. Traveling from South America, he was never in a position to meet with my son at the time that he promised. My son sat in jail much longer than necessary because of Bob. My sense is that Bob needed the business and didn't think it best to refer us to representation (in close proximity to my son) that could respond in a timely, effective manner.
We did however, find excellent representation and would strongly recommend hiring someone other than Bob Horn.
Bob Horn should never be allowed to take on a divorce client again. Paid over 5k to have my divorce dismissed to another state because he didn't do any background work, never worked with my wife's attorney and failed to file an answer when she served me from another state. He even spelled names wrong and got the age of one of my children wrong in court documents. Worst decision of my life to hire this negligent, old man.
ONE OF THE WORST DECISIONS OF MY LIFE TO USE ROBERT HORN AS MY ATTORNEY. NEVER COULD GET AHOLD OF HIM, INTIMIDATED ME IN TO MAKING DECISIONS I WASNT COMFORTABLE WITH. HAD A PRETTY BASIC DIVORCE, NO FIGHTING AND YET I ENDED UP WITH A 8,000.00 BILL!
Mr. Horn helped me out tremendously. I was in a bind with a drunk driving charge and Mr. Horn was upfront with me about the process and what to expect. He was dependable and fought for me. It was a terrible experience to have to go through, but I'm glad I had Mr. Horn in my corner.
Mr. Horn was difficult to work with during my divorce. I attempted to communicate with him many times without a response. He was let go.
