Very grateful for the clear and concise answers Mr. Horner gave. I definitely consider hiring him.

Mr. Horner has answered quickly, accurately and concisely every question I have asked on Avvo, and I have asked many! Apparently, I have a seemingly difficult case, as no lawyer in the NYC area will touch it- even the referrals from the NYC Bar Association have refused me so I am forced to proceed Pro Se. I would hire him in a second, unfortunately, he is two hours away. Thank you, Mr. Horner.

I would like to have hired him, but I guess the location was a problem (too far from me) and I get too anxious and think that lawyers should be able to work miracles (which he probably can), but i think he got upset with me. He seems very very knowledgeable and very quick to respond.

Mr. Horner is undoubtedly a top notch attorney who has skillfully mastered his primary area of practice over the course of his professional experience. His sharp critical thinking and flawless work ethic are perhaps the key qualities which ensured the success of a remarkable number of his cases. I endorse this lawyer and encourage anyone who needs superior legal representation to opt for his services.
