I never had a single incident with the law until a vindictive ex tried to ruin my life. I found myself facing a domestic violence charge which was a gross misdemeanor but it carried much the same burden as a felony if a conviction were to occur. After spending a few days in jail for something I didn't do, I knew I had to find the best criminal defense attorney in Seattle. I am in a successful professional career and a conviction on my record would mean never being able to pass a background check and thus never being able to get hired in my field. Like another reviewer mentioned, I too interviewed many attorneys and the choice became increasingly obvious. Jennifer listened to my side of the story with an open mind and fought vigorously on my behalf. Jennifer knows how the Seattle criminal justice system works and how the prosecutors think, as she has been practicing here for around two decades. Jennifer used a creative array of different legal techniques to methodically expose the lies in the prosecution's case against me. The end result was a dismissal of my case a few weeks prior to trial. I could not be happier as I finally got my life back. Had the case went to trial, I am confident Jennifer would have won. She was able to expose many lies and discrepancies in the accuser's story which would've destroyed their credibility right off the bat.
When you hire Jennifer you get her full attention as she will personally handle every aspect of your case-- unlike some of the other big attorney names out here who work at firms and use their underlings to carry out much of the work for the case. Jennifer is easy to get a hold of and is very quick to respond through calls, texts or emails. Finally, if you do research on the education of every top-rated criminal defense attorney in Seattle you too will see that Jennifer's Ivy League background from Harvard Law gives her the edge

She is the most honest, integrate, and authentic lawyer I have ever met. I felt that she fought for my husband like it was her own family. She always responded to us immediately with a firm awnser. She always kept us well informed ...she never promised a miracle, but she did a miracle with his case. We are very happy with the turn out of the case. We hope to not ever need her, but if we ever needed an attorney Jennifer Horwitz would be the person we would trust! We highly recommend her. Jennifer Horwitz returned peace, and hope to our family.
Thank You Jennifer :)

Jennifer put my mind at ease on our first meeting. I had been railroaded by the system before and had enough. Throughout my case Jennifer was always an e-mail or phone call away. It felt as though I was her top priority. Her extensive knowledge and experience came into play numerous times. She didn't sugarcoat things and gave clear options. In the end Jennifer gave a compelling argument and the judge ruled in my favor. Thank you Jennifer!

"receive personal attention every step of the way"...so true of Jennifer. She was there for me day or night. Jennifer is an excellent listener of all the facts of the case and any history with regard to the case. If I had any question, she got back to me immediately with an answer. After our pre-trial hearing where she received evidence she had requested, and after her review of this evedience, she wrote the prosecutor for a dismissal of the charges. I retained Jennifer after my April 12 arrest for Assault 4 - Domestic Violence and with her hard work the charges against me were dismissed two months later. I highly recommend Jennifer if you are in need of a criminal defense lawyer.

Jennifer is an outstanding attorney. I would trust her to represent me in the most difficult and serious of legal cases. She was always quick to respond to me and was successful in getting my case dismissed before trial. I am grateful for her efforts while representing me and would highly recommend her. I hope that I will never need another criminal defense attorney but if I do I will only call Jennifer.

Ms Horwitz has a gift to understand complex situations and then the ability to organize and concisely articulate and present a persuasive argument. She carefully listens, understands, researches, and presents realistic options, and lays out a course of action to follow. She is honest, straight forward and possesses integrity. She is determined and can be a bull-dog if needed. In my case it dealt with a false claim of violating a Domestic Violence Protection Order by an ex-spouse. The result was all changes were dropped by the Prosecuting Attorney.

I have to say everything about her is professional. It's not just her knowledge and experience, but also her observation and interview skills. She kept me informed on what was going on was very prompt on responding to my emails- sometimes it was night time and weekends. She explained the unfamiliar legal process clearly, and the best of all she made me feel secured the whole time while I was her client.

My husband and I turned to Jennifer for help when a nasty divorce and custody battle turned into criminal accusations. Our first attorney didn't seem to have any clear plan so we fired him and hired Jennifer.
Jennifer was able to put together a narrative of all the events that had transpired over three years leading to these charges. She wrote an impassioned, well-reasoned letter to the prosecutor, after sorting through hundreds of supporting documents.
In the end, all charges were dismissed and the prosecutor was so disgusted with the situation she said in open court that the complaining witness was completely unreliable. If it weren't for Jennifer's hard work, my husband would never have been able to defend himself in any meaningful way against these charges.
You never know what's going to happen when you're charged with a crime, and Jennifer is very good at looking at all the possibilities and figuring out the strongest possible defense.
If you are an ex-husband falsely accused, Jennifer is the attorney for you. She listens, she cares, and she's very good at managing everyone's worry and varying interests. Even as "just the wife" (ie, I was not the client), she was very patient with my questions and made me feel empowered. This whole situation was absolutely terrifying but ended with a pure win for us and for Jennifer. I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Jennifer Horwitz was referred to us by a friend, a few years ago in regards to our teenager. We never had any experience with lawyers before, or legal issues, and Jennifer was very professional, knowledgable, and put our mind at ease regarding our issues. They were handled in a timely manner, and it wasn't as scary as it could have been.
Several years later, we needed a lawyer again regarding one of our teenagers, this time more serious, and even though our situation was not something she did on a regulalr basis, she did take our case, made a very stressful situation not so bad. I would recommend her to anyone who needs representation.
