I hired Mr. Horowitz after I was arrested and charged with knowingly violating a restraining order against owning a weapon. This was in Fresno County but the case it arose out of was in Santa Clara County. This complicated things because the Fresno DA's office knew nothing of the circumstances of the Santa Clara County case. Rick stayed on this with me for over a year while the Fresno DA's office fumbled around trying to figure out what to do. They could not understand that the Santa Clara County case had nothing to do with weapons, that the restraining order in question had not been served on me and was therefor invalid. Rick repeatedly showed up in court for me to try and help the DA's office come to the right conclusion. Finally, after a year, he was successful and the case was dismissed. He stayed with it from beginning to end helping me along the way to understand what was happening and why. I am very grateful for his efforts as you can imagine it is very stressful to be charged with an offense, especially one you're not guilty of. So, if you have managed to get yourself into a spot of trouble like the one I got into I would not hesitate to go to Rick. He proved very knowlegeable and quickly grasped the nature of the difficulties. Prosecutor's being what they are, in today's world it is essential to find a defense attorney who knows the law and understands what strategy is best to follow. Such a person is Rick Horowitz.
