My experience with David has been over the past two years of my divorce. David has not been responsive and has not advocated for me and my children. In hindsight, I probably should have been more forceful or consulted with a different attorney. David is extremely nice, but in a divorce environment that is really not a quality that is necessary for an attorney. I have paid over $49,000 over the past two years to David and his firm. They have not been responsive when I have called for information and are extremely disorganized. I was embarassed to see how organized the opposing counsel has been and continues to be . I am happy my situation has come to a resolution but I do not believe David provided good represenatation.

I would never recommend David Horowitz. I signed a retainer agreement for $15,000 in August, 2012. I paid David $12,500 after two months of unclear communication, mistakes and stress.
1.The Process Server did not having the facts correct when serving my husband with divorce papers. Due to the miscommunication, my children were put in the middle and frightened to say the least.
2. Appointments scheduled with opposing attorney and husband without me being included. After learning of this, I did not agree and told him so. Appointment was not scheduled. There were no financials discussed as of yet.
3. Appointments that I paid for, where follow up appointments were supposed to be scheduled by Paralegal, and were not. No apologies from David.
4. A Consent to Withdraw was recommended. Without knowledge of what this meant, or how long it would take to get signed, numerous emails were sent back and forth due to my lack of understanding.
In conclusion, if I still lived in the State of Arizona, I would arbitrate with the Stare Bar.
Due to the circumstances of my divorce, I cannot endure the travel cost and stress.
I called David in February, 2013 and asked if he would settle on an amount. He refused and said I signed a fee agreement.

I went to David after my dissatisfaction with another attorney who was handling my spousal support case. David took over at the last minute, did all the work required and best of all, I felt very taken care of and protected by David. He is very well respected by the judge on our case and because he knew her style, he did not push things even though I wanted him to. He knew if we waited things out, she would see my ex for the liar he was and that happened! Because of David's tactics she eventually found my ex in contempt of court and even imposed sanctions on him, which David said almost never happens. I have two separate actions against my ex that I have to file one at a time, but because David was so proactive and has a positive non aggressive attitude (but assertive), he got my ex to agree to the second matter, which will avoid us from having to go to court again to file for that, saving us money. David is extremely trustworthy and knowledgeable about the issues I was dealing with. When we did have another issue arise (my ex filing for bankruptcy) that he was not expert in, he referred me another attorney in his firm. I would highly recommend David.
