Editorial review from Citysearch

Hornsby was perfectly satisfactory in handling my first offense DUI case. He gave sound advice (including to enter Pretrial Diversion), took care of all legal details, was quickly available in-person or via email, and charges intermediate prices. I only met with him once, never had to go to court myself, and he even got rid of the speeding ticket involved!

Immediate legal services in orlando

My son was arrested for domestic violence in Orlando Fl. Not knowning any attorneys in Orlando, because i live in New York City, i chose Mr. Hornsby after looking at reviews on the internet. Mr. Hornsby responded immediately, help me post bail, and secured my sons release. He quickly and efficiently got the charges dismissed. I was pleased with his prompt and efficient service.

Saved my life

I made a horrible mistake that lead me to a class A felony and a DUI. I was scared and alone I went to five different lawyers and none of them seemed to even want to help me. I met richard and he was smart,tough, and you can tell that he didn't just want another customer but that he wanted to save me. After thinking my life was over and all negative thoughts controlled my thought process he continuously assured me I was going to okay. I wasn't okay I was in misbelief and thankful this man turned my case. For what I had done it was bad enough to serve five years in jail, he fought it and won. My punishment was six months of probation. People never believe me when they hear the miracle story I speak of him. I was able to keep my license also. Not only did Richard represent me but would make random calls to make sure I had my head on straight. I told Richard my father died the day I met him and he related with me and said he had dealt with the same pain from the lose of his father. He takes pride in his work and takes care of his clients because he is one of the very few that care. I honestly thought my life was over but this man saved my life. If their is anyone I am grateful for it is Richard with out him I don't believe I would be free right now. I strongly push for anyone in need of help to go to richard. I can't fathom how he did it but he said he was going to get me out of the mess I got myself in, I took his word and he proved it. Thank you Richard for everything words can not described how blessed I am to have you as my fighter, protector, my criminal defense lawyer.

He Got the Job Done Quickly!

I hired Richard to clean up an old criminal case that was on my record. He was upfront and very direct about the likelihood of success and did not sugarcoat anything. Nevertheless, he was able to clear up the charge and have it completely removed from my record in less than three months. I highly recommend Richard Hornsby to anyone in need of an excellent criminal defense lawyer.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

As a first time offender, I was so stressed of what might happened to me about my case. I browse at the internet looking for a defense lawyer and saw Atty. Richard Hornsby, read his credentials and I was so impressed of his law experiences. To make the story short, I ask him if he can help me about my case, and was very lucky that he accepted to represent me. While briefing me about the case, Atty. Hornsby advice me not to worry or think about the case and that he will do his best to represent me. About a month later I received an e-mail and a letter informing me that the prosecutor has dismissed the charges pending against me. I was so relieved that I have tears on my eyes. I hug my wife and thank God for his blessings. Atty. Hornsby is a straight forward lawyer, wants to talk about your case and not interested of anything else. I very strongly recommend him as a Criminal Defense Lawyer to anyone.
