Of Excellence
When filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy it was very hard to accept. Barbara was always there for any questions, answers, and always called you back in a quick time. I would recommend Barbara and expect excellency for the procedures you will have to go through. Thank you for all your help and attention to every detail and making me feel at ease.

Long but positive journey
As you may or may not know the journey of a Chapter 13 case can be long and challenging as it's not a simple one day event. Through the years Barbara kept us up to date and handled several issues with our best interest in mind. During the entire process she felt like a friend by our side, truly concerned for the well being of our young family. While I'd never say that a Chapter 13 is an "enjoyable" experience it was tolerable thanks in great part to Barbara.

Barbara Horwitz is the Best!
My attorney, Barbara Horwitz, just handled my entire Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. She did an amazing job which might be an understatement. For example, another very popular local bankruptcy attorney with the initials R.W. reviewed my entire case and I was told based on my specific situation that I would have no choice but to file bankruptcy under the chapter 13 repayment plan. I decided to get a second opinion and let me tell you I am sure glad that I did. After reaching out to Barbara Horwitz for a second opinion and giving her time to review my situation she immediately knew I had a very strong case to be able to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in lieu of the Chapter 13. Throughout the process her candid attention to detail and personal attention I received was splendid. She ultimately won every motion and argument she had to make including keeping my bankruptcy a Chapter 7. She was there for me throughout the entire process and made everything seamless. Barbara is the true definition of a fighter in the legal realm. I can not say enough how impressed I was by the quality of her professionalism. If you are in need a bankruptcy attorney, I request that you at minimum give Barbara a chance to review your case. After your consultation I am confident you will have the same faith and trust in such fine legal representative as I did. Although I didn't know Barbara going into this, I consider Barbara as a part of my extended family as a result.

Barb is an outstanding attorney, she was detailed, honest, compassionate, thorough, available whenever we needed her, got the job done quickly and efficiently. We have been able to contact her after our case was closed to help finalize ANY and ALL lose ends. Bankruptcy is a hard choice and we would have never survived this ordeal without her help.

Personalized Legal Service at its Best
TV ads, newspaper ads, and billboard signs DO NOT equate to a good, reliable attorney. What separates good attorneys from great attorneys are those that are found by word of mouth, by people who have used their services and have been beyond pleased with the results of their case. My experience with Mrs. Barbara Horwitz proved to me she is a one of a kind, brilliant attorney who truly stands out as the best of the best. Her impeccable knowledge of the law, her organization and attention to every detail, coupled with her genuine honesty, kindness and true caring she extends to each of her clients is what makes her second-to-none when searching for the right attorney to handle your legal matters. I could not have asked for a better attorney than Mrs. Horwitz to handle the legal matters I presented to her. She is quick to return phone calls, researches every aspect of your legal matter before providing detailed legal advice and recommendations, and does so in a way that is easy to understand. Mrs. Horwitz will not make you feel like you are on a time clock, where you feel as though you need to rush in and rush out. She is a kind, caring professional who will warmly welcome you, listen to you and the details of your legal matter, and will provide information and a way forward to handle whatever your legal matter may be. I walked out of her office knowing my legal matter was in the best hands possible. The legal issues she handled for me resulted in positive, expedient outcomes. Mrs. Horwitz has earned my utmost respect and repeated business. She is not just a great attorney, but she has become a good friend, too.

Highly recommend
Ms. Horwitz listened carefully to my legal concerns and asked me important questions about my situation to better guide me through the process. Her experience and professional insight gave me confidence and made me feel at ease. She was always available when I had questions and resolved my case successfully, and she handled my case as if it was the most important one in the world.

Highly Recommended
Making the decision to file bankruptcy was a difficult decision for my husband and I. Barbara made us feel so at ease. There was no judgment on her part, she was there to help us. She made us feel like we were her priority. We had a couple of issues come up during our case and Barbara was right there to take care of them immediately. We were blessed to have her in our corner. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Best Lawyer Ever
Attorney Barbara Horwitz is the most hands on, supportive and accessible Lawyer I have ever worked with. She made it feel more like a journey than a case. She has remained fully committed through the entire duration of our legal issues even after several years and I've never once had to wait more than a few hours for a response from her. She communicated every step of the process and has gone above and beyond to address every concern. It was an honor and a privilege to work with such a wonderful attorney.
