Daniel Horowitz is a national television legal commentator seen on Nancy Grace, Larry King, Fox News, CNN, MSNBC and network television.


The office has a major focus defending charges against physicians and chiropractors.   This includes medical board work as well as civil defense against insurance companies and criminal trials.


We have extensive business experience and financial expertise.  Our staff also includes a licensed chiropractor, an attorney fluent in Russian and Ukrainian and a diverse group of  aggressive and talented professionals.


We welcome emails from AVVO users.  We support AVVO strongly and believe that AVVO is a useful tool in helping clients differentiate between law firms. (When Horowitz started, most legal advertising was banned and it was virtually impossible to know who was good or who did what type of work.  Now sites like AVVO provide the opportunity for attorneys to truly differentiate themselves.

  • Howard Lawrence Williams

    I've seen him do a closing argument and, after he was done, he had accomplished what we all aspire to do: make everyone in the courtroom think "how could there possibly be a way that I would believe any other argument?"
