I had two cases I had to deal with when I hired Gerson Horn. I already knew what needed to be done for both cases to prove my innocence because I had an attorney prior to Gerson but my cases were a conflict of interest to that attorney. I was recommended to Gerson from another woman who was well known in the West Hollywood area as a prominent businesswoman who had similar problems as me during the same week as me with the West Hollywood Sheriffs. She was cleared all of her charges and I knew that Gerson understood at least through her case as to how corrupt our justice system can be, so I thought he be the perfect lawyer for me as well. Wrong!
$20,000 got me next to nothing and two years of wasted time. I had given Gerson an outline of what needed to be done to prove my innocence the day I retained him. It was clear from day one in the Beverly Hills Court House that Gerson was friends from a previous time with my District Attorney. I didn't know who she was for another 6 months or so but when I figured it out and I saw Gersons performance not being good at all for me I began to question my attorney. Everything I asked Gerson to do, aka, subpoena drug samples, subpoena evidence of what the Sheriffs allegedly found, witnesses, etc was not getting done. I assumed he was doing all these things but in fact he was doing nothing. I'm not sure if he was just forgetful or if it was on purpose, but either way, I was clear as to what needed to be done and it wasn't. Finally after two years and then the Judge ordering me to trial I had to quickly fire him and get a new attorney since I have the right to effective council for my cases. My new attorney is kicking butt and we are finally getting close to going to trial on charges much less than what was present when Gerson was my attorney.
