What Our Clients Say
Martin is absolutely amazing. I cannot say enough about what an incredible, responsive, intelligent lawyer and man he is. I highly recommend him for any real estate disputes. He defended us and had our backs until the end. If it weren’t for Martin, we would have lost our house. We cannot thank him enough!! – Claire M.
A complete class act. Handles issues w grace and does not make issues worse. Understands, problem solves, and engages in a productive whole hearted manner and is available. Martin does not take advantage as some lawyers are known too and is just a total asset. – Dr. Melissa R.
Martin is a rockstar among lawyers. I would give him 10 stars if I could. When I needed legal representation two years ago, I found martin on Yelp. In our initial consultation, I and was comforted with his intelligence, honesty, and strategic outlook of the battle I faced. Every step of the way, Martin fought hard for our position, and in the end, was able to reach a favorable settlement far below what was originally demanded. I would not hesitate to hire martin in a second should I ever need legal assistance again. DO NOT waste your time with anyone else. Call Martin.
Hi. This is my first time reviewing anyone on Yelp. But, I’m so glad there is a forum to rave about excellent people in businesses. I like to recommend Mr. Martin Horwitz, for anyone looking for a business litigation lawyer. He is truely excellent at what he does; and most importantly, he proves integrity in his relationships with his clients. He saved my husband and I so much money and time. We are soooo grateful to him. Other lawyers we consulted with over a ridiculous lawsuit; insisted we proceed processing….and explained it necessary for us to deposit a starting fee of several thousands of dollars. Fortunately, we decide to check out one more person; and we got so lucky and found Mr. Martin Horwitz. Unlike the other money hungry lawyers; Mr. Horwitz suggested we try to dismiss the case as quickly as possible and not to pursue a long legal battle, because it was going to be expensive…basically, Mr. Horwitz spoke the honest truth and kept our best interest in mind. And at the end, Mr. Horwitz settled our case clean and simple. The whole process took a good three weeks over; and the whole time…Mr. Horwitz was receptive and responsive to all of my questions and concerns. He was genuinely commited to helping us out. He lifted a huge burden off our backs…reassuring us the whole time through; with his patience and sincerity. Definitely, Mr. Martin Horwitz keeps good faith with his clients!!!! He really is the ultimate fighting champion :)))!!!! Thank you!!!!!!! You’re the best!!!!!
“You don’t know how important a TOP TIER attorney is until you need one. But then it’s too late. Where will you ever find that defender of justice in a sea of MEDIOCRITY! A bunch of overcharging weasels after as much coin as they can squeeze from you….the poor, unfortunate and needy sucker! I’ve been there. I lost. It cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorney fees and I lost! In my opinion due entirely to the incredible incompetence of my attorneys (plural) which you truly discover in the middle of the trial. But then it’s too late. Not this time. I have known, and liked MARTIN HORWITZ (socially) for over 15 years. He’s smart, and charming, with a tall imposing, and sharp appearance, and as I recently found out…a HELL OF A LAWYER! He has a way of pleasantly, then strongly, then fiercely pushing the opponent into “shake in the boots” convulsions! We never went to trial thanks to Martin’s amazing maneuvers in emails, letters, and on the phone. Not only terrifically smart and knowledgeable in the law, but a truly talented attorney. He knows how to sweet talk the opponents counsel, find their weakness, and before they know what hit them, bring your attacker down to a whimpering crouch. The plaintiff party finally succumbed. They were worried we would counter sue! It gets better. He is honest and so reasonable and fair in the FEE department. An honest, ultra competent, viscous (when appropriate),funny, laid-back attorney…who would have thunk! Thank you GOD and thank you MARTIN HORWITZ for your super human legal prowess and stunning talents! Hey SUPER HERO… have you considered a CAPE?”
“Martin is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a good name. He handled a traumatic civil suit for me, at the end shutting it down completely, just a few days ago. In the process he exhibited that exact mix of ethical, genteel, appropriate, and then demanding, determining and ultimately winning communications which I think everyone dreams of seeing from their counsel. Neither a monster nor a pussycat, he plays the game with style, and to win.”
“O.K. are you ready for the goods. Martin Horwitz is a really clever guy. You are not going to meet many as smart as he is. He is quick and probably in Mensa. That is all on the top, under all that you have a hard working high integrity fellow who really goes to bat for you when you need the law to push your agenda. I would hate to have him against me in a legal battle, because he is so good and so sharp. If you are in a legal wrangle, the first thing you should do is call Martin so at least, by so doing, you are preventing you opponent from hiring him against you. Well there you are, that is what I think about my business attorney. ”
“In times of trouble, or before you are in trouble, the first person I would call would be Martin Horwitz. He and I are in LeTip of West Los Angeles, a professional networking group, and Martin has an excellent reputation for resolving disputes and for winning cases. He is very attentive at listening to the issues and has an excellent reputation at strategizing successful outcomes. When you need an attorney that knows the complexity of the law and can guide you through difficult circumstances, Martin’s dedication will see you through with excellent results.”
“I’ve used Martin for reviewing contracts and he is top notch. Personable and reliable. The results were all I could hope for. Now, I can rest assured that I am protected under the law when I use my updated contract.”
“Martin is an amazing Lawer. Thank goodness he is always on my team and not on the other side. He is tenacious, very clever, responsive to the task at hand. He thinks of things that most others do not. He GETS results favorable to you! His business mind is second to none. Make sure to see him before you create problems for yourself. No I am not related to him I just have the utmost respect for him and his work. So will you.”
