Motor vehicle accident claim
He took over the case since the insurance company kept stressing me to settle o ce i hired him. He told me to rest and he would handle everything. He did and informed me of things he needed to know or needed to tell me.

Really good attorney in auto rear ender
I was hit from behind while stopped for a traffic light. Even though the car was not damaged seriously, my hand on the steering was was seriously wrenched at the thumb. He and his firm guided me through the entire process of treatment and rehabilitation. They negotiated a very generous settlement. I highly recommend him and his firm.

Very Professional and Friendly
I have worked with Mr. Horn on a number of occasions and have found him to be both professional and friendly at the same time. A tough combination to find.
Response from Douglas Horn March 15, 2017
Thank you for the nice comment! At Horn Law, we pride ourselves on 3 primary areas when it comes to representing injured persons. First, we take care of the investigative, legal, medical, and insurance issues that crop up in every case. Second, we gain the upper hand with the insurance company and position our client's claim for the best possible result. Finally, we maximize our client's recovery. This is where all of our hard work and preparation pays off.
