About Horace

Learn Horace’s areas of practice.

28 YEARS EXPERIENCE. Since 1989, working under the guidance of (and with, and against) some of the best legal talent in the nation, it is a privilege to help people and companies in almost any situation.  More often than not a good result is obtained through hard work and perserverance.  My clients -- each and every one of them -- are important.  They know it.  They may not hear from me every day, but they know I am here.  And I may not hear from them until some trouble or problem has announced itself, but I know in matters they value, they value my time.  And I am proud to call most of them friends.  And their families, and their friends.  And some are great, lifelong friends.  That's how I do it.

Debt Collection Specialist !!!
I had the opportunity to work with H.K. Sawyer, a specialist in debt collection law, and I have been extremely satisfied with his services. Mr. Sawyer demonstrated exceptional expertise in navigating the complexities of debt collection, providing clear and effective strategies that yielded positive results. From our initial meeting, Mr. Sawyer was thorough, professional, and attentive to every detail of my case. He clearly explained the legal processes involved and set realistic expectations, which was incredibly reassuring. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Sawyer maintained excellent communication, keeping me updated on progress and promptly addressing any concerns or questions I had. Mr. Sawyer's persistence and skill in negotiating with debtors and handling court proceedings were evident in the successful recovery of multiple outstanding debts owed to me. His commitment to achieving the best possible outcome was unwavering, and his approach was both ethical and efficient. I highly recommend H.K. Sawyer for anyone needing assistance with debt collection. His professionalism, knowledge, and dedication to his clients make him an outstanding choice for handling even the most challenging debt recovery cases.

Misdemeanor driving infraction
Mr Sawyer was the perfect person for the situation I was was facing two citations, the second one being a misdemeanor. I am not familiar enough to represent myself in this matter. Even though at times, I was clueless about the process of the proceedings. Mr. Sawyer handled everything with flying colors and was able to get the misdemeanor dismissed and paid the fine on the first citation. He walked me through what was going on and even answered emails in a reasonable time. I thank you very much for helping, save my livelihood. Your friend, a truck driver.

Great Lawyer
I went to Mr. Sawyer for two different cases. He stayed in contact and updated me on everything that was going on with both cases. Both cases were resolved in the best way possible and I really appreciate everything that he did for me. If I ever need a lawyer for anything else, I will definitely give him a call.

Amazing Help!
He has helped me so much! I got a speeding ticket 6 hours away from home and he went and helped. He got it nonreporting and no points on my drivers license. Somehow (the ticket was out of state)was reported to Georgia and I sent him an email. He jumped on it and kept me informed every step of the way. He was absolutely great, very efficient and made sure I was aware of everything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone else considering him.

Truly Amazing
This attorney was truly the best attorney I have ever encountered in my life (and I’ve talked to many). I was just calling around to get advice on my very sticky situation, and Horace answered my call and talked to me for quite some time and gave me amazing advice. He was so understanding, sympathetic, honest and humble. I highly recommend him and we plan on doing business with him when it comes down to it. Look no further for an attorney, because HE is the one!

Great Attorney
Mr. Sawyer came to our aid in a situation our child faced at the University she was attending. He immediately knew that she was not being treated fairly and was upfront and honest with what he expected he could do for us. He was very easy to reach when needed, provided great advisement during different aspects of the case and displayed a confidence that let us know we had the right lawyer. For this we are very thankful for him and was greatly appreciative to know that he was able to get her case dismissed. Thanks again Mr. Sawyer for being the hard working and dedicated attorney that you are. Highly recommended!

Great job!!
We will be, eternally, grateful for Mr. Sawyer. He took our case when no one else would. He did, exactly, what he said he would do. He was knowledgeable, reassuring, and effective. I, definitely, would recommend him, time and time again. Thank you, Mr. Sawyer.

Excellent Lawyer
For those looking for a fantastic lawyer, please call HK Sawyer. He handled my case quickly and efficiently. I needed a restraining order ASAP. He actually made it happen within 3 days. He flew down from north Georgia to get a Judge’s signature and then to file with the courthouse. He personally took the order to the sheriff’s department to get them to serve the order that day. I couldn’t say enough good things about Mr Sawyer. Hire him. You won’t regret it.

Excellent help
I had an issue with my previous property management company not returning my deposit. Mr. Sawyer issued a demand letter to them, and I promptly received my security deposit in full within a couple of weeks. He was very responsive of my needs and worked promptly to resolve the issue.

Slow Down!
I got a speeding ticket while traveling through Georgia. I reside in MN and could not appear in court so I contacted Horace to go to court to represent me. He was able to keep the ticket from my permanent record and was able to work through some payment issues to the court.

What a great guy..
After meeting HK to discuss an issue I had with a local business I decided that he was the kind of attorney I wanted to navigate the legal system on my behalf. He was honest and forthright with the information he gave and expectations of the case. He took the time to listen to my frustration and guided me in the right direction based on his experience with the legal system. I would recommend Mr. Sawyer to anyone looking for a honest straight forward guy!

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know of my experience with Mr. Sawyer. Far too often, people are eager to write letters or make a phone call to complain, but I wanted to take the time to write to let you know that I am very pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and determination of Mr. Sawyer. Throughout my case, he was always very quick to respond, made himself available during times that most would consider after hours and always patient in explaining the status and details/developments of my case. Upon settlement of my case, I felt that it was a fair settlement amount and that Mr. Sawyer did everything in his power to ensure this process had truly been as smooth and comfortable as possible. Every step along the way, I was kept informed of the progress, promises were maintained...I could not have asked for more! I thank and commend Mr. Sawyer for truly being For the People!!

Mr. Sawyer was wonderful to work with and I would definitely use his services again.
Last year I got a speeding ticket in Georgia while driving to Missouri. I was referred to Mr. Sawyer and contacted him immediately. He was honest with me about the seriousness of the situation (the ticket was for quite a bit over the posted speed limit) and calmed my fears. My subsequent calls and e-mails were always returned promptly and professionally. Mr. Sawyer took care of everything, I didn't even need to show up in court. I could not have asked for a better lawyer or better results. I highly recommend Mr. Sawyer and would definitely use his services again.

A few days ago I posted a negative review for this lawyer out of frustration. Since I cannot figure out how to erase the comment I would like to post a new comment regarding this lawyer. Mr. Sawyer has contacted me regarding my case with pertinent information that was case sensitive. He explained why the delay to my satisfaction and I would like to apologize for jumping the gun in this situation. If you need an honest lawyer, Mr. Sawyer is upfront and honest and the right person to use if you are willing to be patient and wait until he can perform his job in the time frame needed. He will be honest with you if you let. Please consider using this lawyer for any of your legal needs.
