It’s easy for a lawyer to tell you how wonderful he is. As one of my friends is fond of saying, “On the Internet, no one knows if you are a dog.” In reality, the same holds true when you visit an attorney in his or her office. This Testimonials page collects client reviews of Attorney Rick Horowitz. Real clients wrote these reviews, and you can click on the link for each review to go to the review website — Google, or Avvo — so you know a real client, or a client’s family member, wrote the review.
The client reviews on this page are excerpts from my profile over on Avvo, or on Google. This provides an opportunity for potential clients to see what former clients have had to say about me, and how I handled their cases. If you are a former client and would like to leave a review for me, use this link.
When considering an attorney, it sometimes also helps to see what other attorneys think about the attorney you’re considering. See my Avvo Peer Endorsements to read what at least thirty-four other attorneys who have actually either worked with me, or actually seen me in action in the courts, say about me. If you are one of my colleagues, or an attorney who knows me, and you wish to endorse me, please use this link.
If you are looking for a criminal defense lawyer, you can learn more about what I do by looking at my Practice Areas page.

“Genuine, Intelligent, and Cares” | Avvo Review
Rick is in a league of his own. Why? He cares about his clients. Your not just another pay day. He doesn’t overload his schedule, so that he can give your case the attention it needs. He begins with a consultation and actively listens to your situation attentively and without judgement. He doesn’t fill you with empty promises. He gives it to you straight. In a world filled with bull-shitters, it’s quite refreshing to find someone that is honest.
He’s not the cheapest guy on the block, but he’s worth every penny. [read more on Avvo]

“Finally! A Lawyer who Fights for your Rights.” | Avvo Review
Mr. Horowitz was not only extremely professional, he was very compassionate and patient. Extremely satisfied with the outcome, would hire to represent me in a heartbeat… just hope that’s not necessary. [read more on Avvo]
[NOTE: Regarding this review by Lisa, she was actually represented by a public defender. I represented her co-defendant. We fought this case for nearly two years, during which time my client picked up a new case just as we were heading to trial. Because of this, my client asked me to try to settle the case. However, the DA had been refusing to settle Lisa’s case for the entire two years because he would not give the public defender what the public defender was asking for (what she was asking for was quite reasonable, and she probably could have obtained what she was asking for from the jury). The DA said that because of that he would not settle my client’s case; it was a “package deal.” I finally asked permission of the other attorney to try to settle both cases just before the (rescheduled) trial date. She agreed. In the end, I obtained a settlement for both Lisa, and my client. The settlement I obtained for Lisa was actually better than the one her own attorney had been trying to obtain. This is why Lisa said, “Extremely satisfied with the outcome,” but also added “would hire to represent me in a heartbeat….” She did not actually hire me, but obtained the benefit of my representation because I needed to help her in order to help my own client. The settlement I obtained for my client, by the way, was for six-months local prison. He was facing easily more than 10 years, if convicted. Because of his new case picked up shortly before trial, his case became more likely to be lost at trial.]

“an outcome that only this criminal defense attorney could have pulled off!!!!!!” | Avvo Review
I would like to apologize for not having as much confidence in Rick. We got off to a rocky start and when I look back it was me and I was nervous and second guessed the way my case was going to end and wow…not only did I get no time at all. I also got a second chance at having a felony free record. I decided to go to talk to rick about my case in the beggining because of the abudence of great reviews. I know from personal experience why he gets the reviews that he gets or deserves. Again thank you rick horowitz for caring and fighting for me… P.S. I was looking at a lot of years in prison… [read more on Avvo]

“Best lawyer!” | Avvo Review
Rick represented my teenage son. He sincerely went above and beyond to win his case! From the beginning to the end Rick was knowledgeable and I trusted him to take care of my child who almost gave up. He gave us hope because of his knowledge and caring personality. He lectured my son when he needed to be. He told my son that they were in this fight together. He showed me, as a worried mom that he was going to get us through this rough time…. [read more on Avvo]
