“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?”

Mac R.

“Martin is a dream-team lawyer, all by himself. He shut down a vile civil suit that I was the target of in deliberate, stealthy, measured steps, cornering the plaintiffs team until they completely folded. He was at turns kind, professional, sharp, wicked, funny, mean, snarky--always at exactly the right moment. His grasp of the twisted chess game which is the world of lawyers was a delight to behold, like watching an Olympic athlete at the peak of their performance. Every time he would share a communication he had made with the opposing council I would stand up and cheer. No exaggeration. I cannot tell you how gratifying that is. I'm a little bit sorry it's over because I don't get to read any more of these brilliant constructions.”

John R.

“I highly recommend attorney Martin L. Horwitz. He is very responsive and takes the time to personally talk to and help you. He knows what needs to be done, and quickly moves to get it done. We needed help with a legal case in Southern California, and not only did Martin timely respond, his advice was spot on, and he went above and beyond to take care of what we needed. My experience with Martin has been outstanding, and my clients are very pleased.”

Kevin J. Chapman
Rowley Chapman & Barney, Ltd.

“Martin Horwitz is an attorney I would recommend without reservation. He is a pleasure to work with and always makes you feel as if your problems have his undivided attention. His expert staff is very friendly and helpful. Nobody wants to be in a situation where we have to hire an attorney, but if it does become necessary, I cannot imagine a better attorney to choose. Through the years, there have been three separate occasions when I needed Martin’s legal expertise and it was a great relief to know I could rely on him. Martin is extremely professional, skilled and intelligent. His compassionate, patient and calm demeanor will always put you at ease. And beyond those very important qualities, Martin will work tenaciously to bring you the very best results. I am very appreciative of Martin’s hard work and exceptional legal skills on my behalf. ”

Cindy Burg

“Martin Horwitz is one of the brightest business attorney's I've ever met and has helped me with legal matters regarding my photography business and my new product development company.

He is a genius in law and has incredible negotiating skills.”

“I have been a client of Martin`s for many years & have been very satisfied with his services. Last year , I decided to buy a commercial property & I almost lost the deal but I engaged Martin`s services, he took charge & we were able to secure the property . He was unbelievable! Without him, I would have lost everything . I highly recommend his services. He is a pleasure to do business with.”

Martin Drobis

“I cannot recommend Martin Horwitz highly enough. I had never hired an attorney before, and he came recommended from a family member. He is everything that you could want in an attorney. He is extremely aggressive when it is necessary, but also extremely ethical. He got the job done, and I must say it was not a pleasant situation. He is highly intelligent. He also listens to his client's wishes and understands human nature. If you need an excellent business lawyer, he will definitely protect your interests! And, i must say, at a reasonable price. He made a truly unpleasant situation as easy as possible.”

Marsha Fox

“Martin Horwitz is a pleasure to work with and gets the job done. He thoughtfully gained a grasp of my needs and goals. He swiftly provided feedback, which is refreshing and important in a competitive business world, and provided me with the counsel I needed to make the right business decisions. Thank you Martin”

Brian Tennant

I refer clients to him and without exception my clients and friends have been more than pleased with the results of working with Martin. He is bright, competent and thorough. He is an experienced litigator and has exceptional communication skills. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

Jane Beaumont Hall

“I have know Martin for over five years now. Not only form one professional helping out another but as a friend and adviser, He has always gone above and beyond for me and anyone that i know who has needed his services as an attorney. Martin is always professional and gives you his FULL attention when you want someone to hear you at the very time you NEED to be heard! I cant recommend him enough. ”

Dennis Smith, Owner, little red truck plumbing

“Martin and I have worked on several projects together. In each, I have been consistently impressed with his knowledge of the law, judgment, clear thinking and his ability to press his client's case. Having seen him ask questions and probe for the truth, I was always glad I was on his team and not the other! He is one whiz-bang lawyer, and a nice guy. Hire him. You'll be glad you did.”

David Cagle, President, Strategic Ink

“Martin is amazing, I would not sign one contract with out having Martin read it first, and I would never go to court with out having Matin by my side. He is a great attorney that I would never want to see on the other side!!”

Eric Agaki

“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.”

George Dubiecki

“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.”

Michael Greenfield

“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.”

Karl Brook, Owner, KRB Construction

“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. ”

Dr Neil McLeod DDS

“Martin Horwitz has done business legal work for me. He is quite good at what he does. I highly recommend him.”

Robert Portillo

“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.”
