    My philosophy is that every criminal case is initially headed for either dismissal or trial. This mindset helps me prepare for both serious felony cases and simple municipal traffic tickets.

    I am an active trial attorney, trying several each year. There's no sugar-coating it: trials are expensive. But I'm willing to put in the work to get you your best trial results possible.

Amazing people
I’m so thankful we consulted and hired Michael. He has been absolutely amazing for us and never stopping working for us. Some things happened that had to pause our custody case but even then he didn’t give up, he let me know what he could still do for us and let me know he was ready to go again when it comes time! Highly Recommend him. He has such an amazing staff, very honest and caring people! Erin is one of his paralegals and she has become more like family to me. There are not enough words to show my appreciation for this group of people during a hard time for us!!

Outstanding Service
I have never needed an attorney before and working with Mr. Horn made the situation bareable and painless. Its not a fun thing to have to hire an attorney but if you need one I highly recommend Mr. Horn and his staff. Explanations were clear, updates were given as received, reasonable appointment times, and if any doubts arose Mr. Horn was available to clarify. Mr. Horn went above and beyond for me and I can't thank him enough!

custody/ guardianship hearing
Michael has done more for my case in one hearing then my prior attorney had done in 3 years. I truly recommend him to anyone who is needing their voice to be heard in the courtroom.

Finally found someone to help me get my divorce!
Michael was very informative and fast in getting my divorce. He just finallized it on Dec 22nd, 2014. I only hired him a short time and boom I got everything I needed for the best interest of my children.

Finally a lawyer who helped me... !!
I 've spent a lot of money on lawyers with business and personal needs over the last ten years.. and so many of them it felt like had their own idea of how i should do things or didn't ask.. so i felt unrepresented too often. Michael not only actually helped me, but was quick and efficient and helped me understand what my choices were and truly represented my concerns and goals without giant dollar signs on the bill!! I not only would recommend him.. but have many times already.
