Meet your new Lawyer Derek Horne
Derek Horne walks the talk. After searching for a local Pooler attorney to help me with a local matter I made several phone calls and after speaking with a couple others that only seemed to want my money but couldn't explain exactly how they would handle my situation and didnt have much time to talk before getting paid one of them a former local prosecutor I made my last call to Derek Horne. Derek Horne took the call right away and spent 20 minutes on the phone with me before discusing any money. He was clear on what he would do for me and he knew all the local players, without going into great detail talking with Derek was like talking to one of the guys and he delivered in a big way and at a resonable fee. My case outcome was exactly what he said it would be. Derek Horne is a lawyer you can trust. HIRE HIM !!!

DONT CHOOSE ANYONE ELSE!
derek and his team helped my boyfriend and i after we were hit by a drunk driver. he and his team treated us like family and not only made sure we got the top dollar we deserved but also that we got the care we deserved afterwards as well. he found us every single doctor we needed to see and made sure we had rides to appointments. hes also the only reason we were able to get a new car quickly by giving us ways to access some money when we needed it before our case was done. he even sent me a birthday card on my birthday which just goes to show his kindness and detail to his clients. if i could give him 100 stars i would and highly highly recommend him.

Mr Horne es un excelente abogado y muy considerado
Mr Horne ayudo a un amigo Alexis Montano Corvea con un accidente y algunas multas en la ciudad de Port Wenworth . Yo ayude con la interpretacion por eso conoci el trabajo de Mr Horne. Lo recomiendo como abogado porque es considerado, desea ayudar y no es interesado. Aunque fuimos 4 veces a la Corte sus honorarios no cambiaron y siempre nos tuvo en comunicacion via telefono, texto, y un par de veces consulta en su oficina en Pooler, Ga.

Not like other lawyers
Mr. Horne aided me and my children after we were rear ended. There was no waiting or leaving messages for secretary’s and I was immediately impressed that when I called HE picked up the phone. Once I hired him he stepped in and made wrongs right! He kept in touch with me every step of the way and answered any question I had. He’s gone above and beyond what I could’ve hoped for.

His Firm pledge says it all...
Derek is the epitome of the lawyer that you want representing you. He has the experience to effectively and efficiently navigate the convoluted legal system to reach a resolution as quickly as possible. He constantly conducts himself with professionalism and integrity. But most importantly, he genuinely cares about each and every one of his clients and diligently seeks the solution that makes them whole again. I can't think of another person that I would rather put my life and well-being in their hands.

Over $1.5 Million
I used Derek when faced with a potentially devastating insurance claim that would have left me bankrupt and facing over $1.5 million in financial penalties and indemnification. Derek acted swiftly and decisively to challenge the breach of contract claim, and secure my financial position. He is my attorney for life!

Can I Give The Horne Law Firm Six Stars?
Derek Horne was tremendously knowledgeable about the law regarding my legal situation with my mother's condo HOA. He was responsive when I called and patience with numerous questions I had asked. I felt he was genuine and straightforward and broke down the steps into bize size pieces so we could understand them. I am happy with the lawsuit outcome and would highly recommend him. So much so, that my husband and I will be scheduling an appointment to discuss our living trust and will.

Great Legal Advice
DO NOT settle with an insurance company before you speak to Derek. His advice saved me a huge hassle and the possibility of settling for WAY less than I ended up with. Give Derek a call -- he's got your back!

Number 1 Lawyer
When an SUV knocked me off my motorcycle, I broke my leg and three bones in my hand. The $400,000 settlement helped me get back on my feet and start my dream business, but that is not why I tell everyone they should use Derek as their attorney. Derek called me every single week he had my case, and never failed to fully explain each step of the process. My case was in 2015, and he still calls to check on me. He cares, and it shows.

Excellent Attorney
Attorney Derek Horne handled a case for my child when she was hurt in a car accident. Mr. Horne kept me informed every step of the way and my case ended up with results better than I could have ever imagined. I would recommend Mr. Horne to anyone in need of legal services who wants an attorney who actually cares. Thank you Mr. Horne.
