Rating for Lawyer Horowitz
He is very tough. He made me listen to him and work his way. He was right. It worked. I won my case and I am very lucky.

Approachable but Serious
Mr. Horowitz is the perfect balance of what someone wants in a lawyer. Not only is he approachable enough to gain and value your trust, but he's a bulldog in the courtroom. Despite his kindness I have never once doubted his ability to provide me with THE BEST representation in court. I'm so thankful to have found a lawyer capable of such a delicate balancing act.

Won my case
He told me that he hadn't lost a trial in a long time and he didn't want mine to break the streak. I didn't either ! We went to trial and he was in control of the courtroom. He was totally prepared. But I was still worried because the prosecutor was very good as well. Daniel was confident but honest. The jury really liked him. As you can tell, he won my case because I am here, writing this review. Thank you.

Very Caring Individual
Daniel handled my divorce back in 1991 and is a very understanding and caring person who took care of my needs with patience and understanding. He is one of a very few of that special breed. Wish to God there were more like him. Thanks Daniel.

Tough~ Humble~Integrity~Simply THE Best
With Dan it is not so much about the money but about doing what is right. A very rare breed. He has honesty and integrity and the jurys see it. If he doesn't believe in the case or the client he won't waste your time or his. But you better listen to him!...Believe an trust in him. I did and I am totally indebted to him. He is "The best of the best." Thank you Dan for all you have done and continue to do. Carole~ Arbuckle v. Board of Chiropractic Examiners

"Daniel A. Horowitz is the best litigator I have ever watched in trial - and I've watched some excellent criminal defense lawyers over the last 19 years - from J. Tony Serra (California) to Philip H. Lowenthal (Hawaii). He is factually very astute and knows the evidence code inside and out. He also uses technology efficiently and creatively. He is also extremely aggressive when necessary and fights with vigor and integrity for his clients."
