Our Client Centered Model

Team Leader

Daniel Horowitz supervises all legal teams for Lawyers in Lafayette.  He meets every client.  You and Daniel agree upon the attorneys and paralegals best suited (by experience and personality) for your case. 

Specialized Experience

In additional to law degrees or paralegal qualification we have MBA's, RIA's, real estate brokers, a medical doctor and chiropractor.  Three of our attorneys are certified as criminal defense specialists by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.  Our trial attorneys are among the most experienced in the State with literally hundreds of jury trials as lead trial counsel.  

Daniel Horowitz is a California attorney, Registered Investment Advisor, and Real Estate Broker.  His experience includes owning a real estate brokerage firm.  He has served as the SEC compliance counsel for a brokerage firm that managed the voluntary pension fund for the Metropolitan Opera and American Ballet Theater for over 20 years.

Client Focused Legal Team

Daniel Horowitz selects each attorney and paralegal for your case based upon two key metrics:

   1. Expertise in Your Area of Law

   2. Personal compatibility with you, our Client

If your case has a strong financial and business element you are likely to have a paralegal with an MBA working on your case.  If the issues are medical you will see a lawyer/doctor or a paralegal/law school graduate working with Daniel Horowitz.  

Why a Client Centered Approach is Best for You

 There is no “dead wood” or “lawyer in training” on your case.  

Custom team assembly takes out of the picture the cost of “training” a team member who lacks the existing/core expertise that you need.   While many law firms have flexibility in case assignment and staffing, our curated model provides for a higher level of specialization and expertise than the typical law firm.  




Daniel Horowitz is active in Lafayette community affairs as a long standing member of the Crime Prevention Commission, member of the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and supporter of LPIE, Acalanes sports and Generations in Jazz.
