Claire is an excellent lawyer who makes you feel at ease during the entire ordeal and fights hard on your behalf. I would hire her again in a heartbeat if I needed to!

Claire handled a majority of my case when I hired Horwath law. She was extremely empathetic with my situation and did not treat me like a criminal, as many attorneys tend to do. She handled my case with great expertise and got me the best settlement I could have asked for. If you get in trouble in the state of Washington and you don't hire Claire, you will regret it.

I hired Lady Claire for two DUI cases and one just got dismissed! Claire is a woman that is all about desirable results! Her professionalism and knowledge of DUI cases is unparallelled to any other. I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND Claire for her compassion as well as her expertise in DUI law!

I was arrested for a DUI, open container, 20+ speeding and no current registration. From the very beginning, Claire was confident that they would get my charges reduced. She was very reassuring and always returned my phone calls within the hour. Claire was able to get the DUI reduced to a negligent in the first degree and the other charges dropped (which was beyond my expectations). I would highly recommend using this firm and encourage anyone not to go it alone but to hire Horwath Law.

Knowledgable and thorough. When it came to the courts she had done her homework. She presented herself as confident and assertive but respectful. I came out of it with nothing but a fine for damages.

Claire was assigned to my case and from the start, she seemed intent on getting me the best deal possible, with time sensitivity and saving my career/record. She was familiar with legal system and those assigned to my case, which proved helpful. The initial DUI charge was reduced to Reckless Driving, due to other issues within the case, but still NO DUI charge! Claire treated me as a person and not as another case, she gained my trust with each conversation we had, whether in court or updates via phone/email. She was also able to win my DOL hearing, which statistics show, are not in the favor of any DUI/DWI offender. I recommend Claire and her firm (Horwath Law) to any one seeking legal counsel they can trust and seeking the odds on their side.

Claire was assigned as my Public Defender but put in the effort like i paid a ton. She was able to get my criminal case dismissed. Which, in turn, led to a dismissal for my co-defendant also. She went above and beyond what most PDs do. She stayed on me to make sure i did my part in my defense (as far as witness statements, etc...), and put in the effort to make sure she had beaten the charges before trial was to start. Plus it was nice to watch such a beatiful woman represent me.

Helped during my actual hearing. Knew all of the possible worst and best case scenarios. Explained all of my options to me. Very professional. I will recommend her to everyone. Thanks Claire

I am absolutely convinced that having Claire represent me kept an ugly situation from being much worse. She exceeded my expectations with her level of service and compassion. She was always efficient, very clear about what was realistic, and I always knew what she was trying to accomplish for me. Most importantly she always took the time to ask me how I was doing, and she always listened to what I had to say.
When I received the DOL notice that my license would be suspended, Claire immediately requested a hearing and was successful in keeping my license from being suspended. She also successfully negotiated a lesser criminal charge against me and no jail time.
Trustworthiness is essential in a defense attorney, and in my opinion Claire is the epitome of trustworthiness. Claire would be the only defense attorney I would recommend for this situation. I would do whatever I could to ensure that she represented any friend or family member should they ever find themselves in need of representation. Throughout this process I had an opportunity to "compare notes" with quite a few others in my situation, and hands down my final outcome was much better.
Although each case is unique, please believe me when I say the best possible representation will ensure you the best possible outcome.
Thanks Claire for all of your hard work. You are the best!
