    Mr Hornsby is not afraid to go to trial and is always looking for the best result for his client even if it means a lot of extra work. He is very good at negotiating and gave us advice that significantly reduced the sentence from the minimum mandatory requirements which was something every other attorney we had spoken to said was impossible. He was truly a miracle worker in the case I hired him on and I would never consider hiring another attorney. If you want an attorney you can communicate with easily, knows the judicial system like the back of his hand, and will fight for your life hire Richard Hornsby.

    Mr. Hornsby handled my case swiftly with precision, dedication, and true honesty. In total I was dealing with the legal process for less than 5 months with only 2 court appearances. I was in a very sticky situation and he bluntly gave me all of the options to proceed. I was not willing to go to trial based on the charges I was facing and he dauntlessly fought to obtain the plea deal I was offered. The states attorney kept trying to worsen the deal at the last moment, while in court, and he vigorously fought to keep it reasonable despite the annoyance it brought to the states attorney. I was facing 4 felonies and 1 misdemeanor all carrying serious prison time but only received 2 years probation and adjudication was withheld (no felony conviction). While I was hoping for a better plea deal, I was also not willing to gamble it all, 2 years probation and adjudication withheld is GREAT considering the alternative. I was a difficult client to deal with and constantly called him with my, along with my families, questions and concerns. He was never too busy to talk with me or my family (with my permission) and lay everything on the table very honestly and I sincerely thank him for that. He offers a payment plan for those who cannot pay for everything up front which was very helpful. If anyone finds themselves or a family member in legal trouble, in my opinion, the best thing you can do is call Mr. Hornsby! It was the best phone call my sister-in-law EVER made because he saved my future through his hard work, commitment, and audacious attitude.

    Our son got arrested on an early Saturday morning for "loitering or prowling" in Orlando. After bailing him out, we left a message for Richard after reading the local attorney reviews. He got back to us within 20 minutes, & after speaking with him, hired him then and there. Now our results can't guarantee yours, but Richard engaged the prosecutor, who thankfully agreed to drop the case. In sum, Richard is prompt, informative, & most importantly, effective.

    This was my first and last (if I have anything to do about it), serious encounter with the law. I was scared and didn't know where to turn. There were several attorneys available on the Internet but after I did my research Mr. Richard Hornsby stood above the crowd. His knowledge, his record and his education stood alone. When I met with Richard he focused on the facts and was very straightforward not wasting time. He told me that he felt good about my case and told me exactly what to expect and
