Since 1924, the Horwitz family of distinguished Chicago trial attorneys has continued a tradition begun by grandfather, Jacob W. Horwitz and then his son Andrew J. Horwitz, representing individuals against corporate wrongdoers and insurance companies who have taken advantage of those who have been injured. Clifford and Mitchell Horwitz are third generation trial lawyers who continue that tradition. Clifford Horwitz heads the lead trial team at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates. He has won every case that he's tried for the last 20 years with over one-quarter of his victories being record-setting jury verdicts. Mitchell Horwitz leads workers' compensation team. He was recently named one of the Top 10 Workers' Compensation Lawyers in Illinois by his peers through a survey conducted by Leading Lawyers.
The firm is comprised of nine partners and five associates with departments focused on personal injury, workers' compensation, nursing home abuse and neglect, and wrongful death. Attorneys at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates have been recognized by the American Association of Justice, Illinois Super Lawyers, the National Trial Lawyers Association Top 100 Trial Lawyers and Top 40 Under 40, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and Leading Lawyers.
In a recent example of Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates' record of success, Clifford Horwitz, Jay Luchsinger, and Michael Carter won another record-setting jury verdict of $64 Million for an injured ironworker who fell and was left paralyzed from a jobsite accident. According to the Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter, the verdict was the highest ever in the state of Illinois for an individual. The American Association of Justice published the verdict in their annual litigation packet, branding Clifford, Jay and Michael as "masters in the profession." Less than two years later, this same trial team won another record jury verdict for a carpenter who was left permanently injured from a jobsite accident. The carpenter had been told by another firm that there was no case.
But their distinction is more than a legacy of record-setting verdicts or peer acclaim. It is found in the satisfaction of thousands of clients, including the countless cases that other firms felt were too difficult to accept; cases that Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates took on, skillfully prosecuted and won. They have recovered more than $1 billion in verdicts and settlements for hardworking families throughout the state of Illinois.
