The best of the best attorneys
I used Daniel Horowitz when I was hurt on a job. I was alot of times in alot of pain and he always was compassionate and caring person. He did not make me feel like any of my questions were too dumb. He always answered them and explain everything to me. It was a very pleasant experience under the circumstances because he and staff made it this way. He is aggressive and gets his point across. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. I will definitely use him again if needed. Thank you!!

Hands down simply the best!
My husband and I were involved in a terrible car accident and I wasn't sure where to begin to handle all my medical bills and the injuries I incurred. A friend recommended Daniel and his entire team jumped right in and compassionately helped every step of the way. I often felt overwhelmed in the process and they always and quickly answered and alleviated my fears and concerns. Daniel works hard and truly believes in protecting those who've been injured and their families. I am still in the healing process but I know every effort has been made to make it easier for me to focus on getting better so I can care for my family.

Quick, fair, and got results!
David Horowitz III moved very quickly on a personal injury case. After one meeting he had hammered out a course of action that seemed plausible and likely to get results. Within a week he had put the plan into action. and amazingly within six weeks had an offer to settle that was acceptable I only met with Mr. Horowitz twice, once to form a plan, and the second time to sign settlement papers. All minor details were handled over the phone by his staff that always seemed to know exactly how to handle minor issues. I always felt they knew me and my concerns, and had solutions ready for anything. I am very happy with his services, and would recommend him without hesitation.

A compassionate and professional lawyer
I lost my boyfriend to a terrible auto accident, and my daughter also got badly injured in the accident. My sister-in-law’s sister-in-law has worked in insurance industry for decades. She recommended Daniel to me. Daniel is very compassionate and understanding. He knew as a single mom with an injured child, I desperately needed his help to handle my pile of hospital and medical bills and to take care of this whole legal situation with the insurance companies for me and my daughter. Daniel asked me not to be stressed, and he would take care of it. He and his legal staff did just so. He was also very sensitive and protective of my daughter’s feelings and well-being with her young age during handling. Daniel is very professional and experienced. From the very beginning, he explained to me all the procedures and the approximate time frame. His legal staff kept me updated on the case and reminded me of upcoming meetings and court date, with the minimum of my involvement throughout the entire time. They really know what they do, and do it the best. I truly appreciate Daniel’s help, and will definitely recommend him and hire him again if needed.

Beyond the best of my expectations
I interviewed five attorneys in Houston for a Mal-Practice law suit relating to my daughter's death. I wanted a strong, smart, aggressive attorney with a great reputation basically a Bull Dog. When talking to a District Attorney, I mentioned a few of the prospective attorney's names that I was thinking of hiring, when I mentioned Daniel Horowitz's name she said "he is the best of the best". She was correct! Law suits are very emotional. Daniel Horowitz listen's with compassion, his memory astounded me on our first meeting. A very important and appreciated attribute Daniel has as well as his office staff, is keeping you up to date on the case with quick responses to questions via email or a phone call. I felt protected, like I walked in with a body guard, feeling very confident going into mediations and trial. I know he is the BEST and I appreciate all he has done for me and my family. I highly recommend Daniel Horowitz because he goes above and beyond the best of my expectations.

I was treated like family while going through a rough time in my case. He stood up for me against the Big insurance company.

Thank you Brian. I hope you and the family are doing well.

Tremendous Man and Lawyer.
My wife and I got in an accident and was being bullied by an insurance company. He helped us tremendously. Not only is he a good lawyer but a man willing to fight on one's behalf. We live out of state now, but if we lived in Texas and ever needed him I wouldn't hesitate about his ability to help us again. Thank you!
Response from Daniel Horowitz September 16, 2015
Thank you for the kind words.

A very caring, professional attorney
My mother, sister and I hired Daniel after my other sister was killed. We wanted to know how she was killed. Daniel hired the finest of experts to answer what we so wanted to know. How can you have closure to the death of a loved one who would light up a room when she walked in and not even know how this happened? After 3 years of investigation, we know, without a doubt, why my sister is no longer with us. I will always be grateful to Daniel for believing in our case and doing what needed to be done. We had to call on him many times regarding issues involving my sister. He was there to help...day or night. Little did I know that Daniel would become a trusted friend. Our case was recently settled out of court. We were all, of course, willing to go to court, however the emotional pain would have been very difficult to go through. I am so grateful that my family was not put through that. I highly recommend Daniel David Horowitz III if you want someone who cares to go the extra mile.

When In Need You Need the Very Best
Daniel and his co workers proved their worth to our family in the tragic loss of my daughter. He worked very diligently for 2 1/2 years to bring the case to a close. Because of the nature of this case it took this amount of time to bring the all the facts to the table. Daniel was always there for me if I needed to talk or cry on his shoulder. I appreciate him as a person and an attorney and would most definately hire him again if needed.

Personal injury Attorney | Jan 20
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Daniel Horowitz and I first met many years ago when we came to jointly represent a client on a personal injury matter. He had presented a case for an individual who had been injured as a result of the negligent conduct of another individual. Unfortunately, that individual tried to blame Daniel's client which led to her having to retain me to defend her at the same time. Daniel was an excellent advocate for his client and was a perfect example of a professional throughout. We ultimately had to take the case to trial where Daniel and I jointly tried the case. Daniel is an excellent trial lawyer and he is 1 of only 3 lawyers that I have told my spouse to call if something were to happen to me. Since that trial I have considered Daniel one of my closest friends and would recommend him to anyone needing help."
