I called Ms Horowitz seeking assistance with a difficult traffic ticket problem. You see, my son drives a probably-too-powerful car and has, shall we say, an ill-advised fondness for testing its limits. He'd just earned his third ticket in less than 18 months, and to make matters worse, he's under 25 y.o. He was in danger of losing his license and/or his insurance, and we needed serious help.
Ms. Horowitz was immediately responsive to our needs. She took my call straightaway and arranged to meet with us within days. I was more than impressed with her knowledge in the specific area of serious traffic violations. She explained in detail what we could expect of the process and what we could expect from her. She was confident she could help my son, yet at the same time she was frank about what we were up against. I wanted an attorney who would be straight with my son, an attorney who would not sugar-coat the situation simply to land the case. We hired her immediately.
Throughout the experience, Ms Horowitz kept us fully informed. She developed a strategy that demonstrated she clearly "knows her way around" the Broward traffic court system, and she executed that strategy - which, to me, creatively addressed my son's specific situation - and yes, she was successful in obtaining a very positive outcome. The result she attained for my son was actually MORE favorable than we'd dared to hope for! I attribute this to several factors:
1) Ms Horowitz's thorough preparation,
2) Her considerable ourtroom skills, and
3) Most particularly to the fact that she was consistently frank with us, preparing us for every possible outcome for my son's case.
We were, therefore, thrilled when she achieved a complete dismissal.
Not only that, her fee was beyond reasonable.
I absolutely recommend Melanie Horowitz.

I was referred to Melanie through prepaid legal service in 2010 for a traffic ticket, and have been a client of hers ever since. Melanie always takes time to explain the charges, possible defense options and outcomes, and allows time to consider my options and explain what happened. When it comes to actual defense, Melanie has never been afraid of going to court, and has always been a true advocate on my behalf. Honestly when I think of the kind of lawyer Melanie is, the word esquire comes to mind. She really cares for her clients and is in my mind the most noble lawyer I've ever met. Melanie is someone I trust very deeply and I truly appreciate the person she is and the service she provides.
Thank you Melanie!

Melanie has done an excellent job, so far (fingers crossed/good luck with the remaining ones) with my traffic tickets. She got one of them completely dismissed. To reiterate some points made by another attorney here on Avvo PADF who also hired Melanie, she is extremely professional and honest; her rates were excellent for me and I highly recommend her.

I have been an attorney for 37 years and on occasion even I need representation. Melanie did a super job for me in traffic court. She's completely professional, fair in her billings and she always kept me current on the status of my case.
You can be sure you have a good advocate in your corner when you retain her.

Melanie is an excellent traffic tix attorney....i contact her thru a legal plan recommendation i have at work and she worked wonders for me. She immediately called me back after leaving a message with Dixie (her assistant) at the office. She took the time to explain my options even before I hired her; she was very politely and answered all my questions and concerns..she kept me in the loop throughout the entire process and made me feel comfortable that she was more that capable of handling this for me. She got my license re-instated immediately with no points. She went to Broward and Dade Courts to handle all toll tickets, i didn't even have to attend court. Thank you! Melanie!!

I recommend her to all of my friends and colleagues. She kept me informed, I received no points and court cost on one ticket and absolutely no cost on another.

Melanie was sympathetic to my plight and efficient in dealing with my case which was subsequently dismissed in court. I had not even met her personally when I sought her help. She was a referral from a colleague and I am so grateful for her services.
