I hired Mr. Hornsby for my case. He was able to handle all the court dates for me, so I never had to go to court. He is quick and professional when handling cases. He will get the results you want and I strongly recommend him.

Nervous and apprehensive about my first criminal arrest I was fortunate enough to find Mr. Hornsby. His professionalism and over all knowledge not only put my nerves at ease but also got the results I wanted for my case. He carefully explained my best available options that benefited myself and my family as well. He kept me informed throughout the process and personally answered my calls. I would recommend Mr. Hornsby to anyone requiring a defense attorney.

Mr. Hornsby and his office handled my Petite Theft misdemeanor case. Having never been arrested prior to this, I was not familiar with this process. He was professional, respectful, honest, and "to-the-point" about the theft charges when describing the process to get the charges dismissed and ultimately expunged. I highly recommend Mr. Hornsby and his office when deciding on representation for your case regardless of criminal charges.

Mr. Hornsby came highly recommended from a friend who had a similar DUI case. I found Mr. Hornsby extremely knowledgeable and honest. He has a professional attitude and no nonsense demeanor in all interactions and you truly feel he is fighting for you and has your best interests in focus. Though I feel he could be a little more warm and comforting to clients that are scared and unsure, especially in a first-time offense, he was true to his word on what he felt would happen with my case and kept me informed along the way. He answered any questions that I sent over and helped me immensely to rectify my mistake in the best-case scenario. Thank you, thank you.

Mr. Hornsby could not have made my first legal issue any easier to get through. Within less than 1 month of taking my case, he was able to get the case dismissed. He was clear as to what the process would entail, and everything went exactly as described. All I had to do was sit back and let him do his job. I could not be happier and highly recommend Mr. Hornsby if you need a top notch Defense Lawyer.

When I found myself in trouble a year ago, feeling trapped and helpless that there was no way out, I came across Mr.Hornsby. From the very first phone call, he gave me hope and a sense of comfort that everything would be okay until the case was resolved, and it was. Every phone call and email was returned immediately and every single thing he said he would do for me, was done! Through your case, you will not have to worry about lifting a finger as he makes sure everything is clear and organized.

A+ service, I would use him again but lets hope I won't have too!

Mr. Hornsby was very informative on how my case would work, and was very swift to tell me what i needed to do leading up to my court date. He told me the classes i would need to take in advance to help get my case lowered to reckless driving. He seemed to have a very high knowledge of the laws pertaining to my case. When we appeared in court he was straight forward with what we were going to do, and thanks to his help got my DUI reduced to a reckless driving.

Mr. Hornsby represented me this past year in a higher profession manner that makes going through a highly stressful situation easer to deal with. He kept me informed along the entire process, giving me clear, easy to understand guidance during this process. Knowing that he was there at any time of the day or night to answers questions or concerns made this difficult time easier for me and my family to handle. I would highly recommend him to others in need of outstanding legal services.

Mr. Hornsby comes from a family of respected attorneys. My minor son was handled for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. He had failed out of drug court and was about to be processed through the system. Mr. Hornsby successfully guided us through the process to the best conclusion we would anticipate, court costs and short term probation. Thank you sir.

He made himself very familiar with my case and met me on a regular basis to be sure that he had every detail possible.I felt that he was very prepared for my trial and he also had me well prepared.After two long years of having untruthful charges hanging over me, my trial ended in a non-guilty verdict.I am very thankful to Mr.Hornsby for all the time he devoted to me and my case

Mr. Hornsby went above and beyond the expectations that I had for my legal representative.

Mr. Hornsby represented our son on a felony charge and while the results of the case did not go quite the way we hoped for, I'm sure that without his efforts the outcome could have been much worse. Mr. Hornsby provided regular updates, had great attention for detail, and provided an exceptional level of expertise. In additional to the highest level of expertise we found Mr. Hornsby's fee to be very and fair reasonable. We were a family in crisis and Mr. Hornsby guided us through the process.

Richard Hornsby was a very good lawyer. When my case all the sudden came up after two years nearly following the events that had lead up to it I was confused, lost, and had no clue what I was going to do. Mr Hornsby was referred to me but a lawyer in Georgia who was very good friends with two of my cop friends in Georgia. Being he came highly recommended I scheduled a meeting with him to see about representing me and within the first few minutes I knew he was the absolute right man for the job.

I received a written arrest for a misdemeanor and was never in this position. I had no idea what to do, what to expect and was frightened about it all. I am a freshman in college and my parents were very anxious as well as they never had to deal with anything like this and didn't know where to start. They found Mr. Hornsby by searching on the internet for criminal attorneys in the area, called a few and were impressed that Mr. Hornsby answered the first call himself. He was extremely helpful.

Richard represented our son on a felony theft charge. Richard negotiated restitution, got the case dismissed, and kept our son from having a felony conviction. Richard kept us informed of case status over an eight month period, provided clear and reasonable guidance about legal alternatives and costs, and made all court appearances and filings required. The result of avoiding a felony conviction was the best result we could have hoped for. The cost was reasonable given the situation.

Richard Hornsby is an outstanding attorney who is highly regarded within the criminal justice system. Mr. Hornsby has built a reputation with the State District Attorney's Office that assures his customers of the best possible results up to and including case closure without judgment. I hope that I never again need an attorney but if that situation ever presents itself I will turn to Richard Hornsby without reservation.

Mr. Hornsby represented me for my case over the the past year. This was been the first time I had a run-in with law, so I had no idea what actions to take nor what to expect, especially being from another state. Mr. Hornsby was able to alleviate me of much stress and was always available to assist with any questions or doubts I may have had. He suggested multiple actions that I could take and offered his opinion on the best option. I chose to enter the Pre-Trial Diversion program for my DUI.

Mr. Hornsby's knowledge and professionalism are exceptional. From the initial interview, he gave me comfort in knowing that he was well qualified to handle my case. He was able to reassure me in every aspect and actually got me a much better sentence than I expected. He handled every aspect of my case without me ever having to appear in Court and was readily available to answer all my e-mails in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a good criminal attorney.

My son was arrested for domestic violence in Orlando, Fl. Being from New York City I knew no lawyers in the Orlando area. I located Mr. Hornsby through lawyers.com and he responded immediately. He helped me post bail, and secure my son's release. He efficiently had the charges against my son dismissed and he kept me informed of the situation.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

Anonymity

Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
