Horwitz Horwitz and Associates -
August 20, 2013
We congratulate Clifford Horwitz, Mitchell Horwitz, Jay Luchsinger, and Marc Perper, four partners at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates, who have been honored by their peers as Leading Lawyers, a distinction earned by fewer than five percent of all lawyers licensed to practice law in Illinois.
Mitch Horwitz, who leads the workers’ compensation team was named one of the Top 10 Workers Compensation Lawyers in Illinois.
Since 1924, the Horwitz family of distinguished 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. Clifford and Mitchell Horwitz are third generation trial lawyers who continue that tradition. Clifford Horwitz has won innumerable cases over the past quarter century, with many of his victories representing record-setting jury verdicts.
Mitchell Horwitz leads the workers’ compensation team and was recently named one of the Top 10 Workers Compensation Lawyers in Illinois in a survey of his peers conducted by Leading Lawyers. Their team of experienced trial attorneys continue to expand their firm’s legacy of successful litigation that few firms can claim.
In a recent example of their firm’s record of excellence, Clifford Horwitz, Jay Luchsinger and Michael Carter won another record-settingjury verdict. According to the Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter, they won the largest jury verdict in Illinois history for an individual, an injured iron worker who fell and was left paralyzed from a jobsite accident. In reporting the $64 million verdict, the American Association of Justice branded Clifford, Jay and Michael as “masters in the profession.”
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, and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. We congratulate Clifford Horwitz, Mitchell Horwitz, Jay Luchsinger, and Marc Perper, who have been honored by their peers as Leading Lawyers. But their firm’s distinction is more than a legacy of record-setting verdicts or peer acclaim. It’s found in the satisfaction of thousands of clients, including countless cases felt too difficult by other firms to accept; cases that Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates then took on, skillfully prosecuted and won, recovering millions of dollars for clients who had been denied representation by others. They have recovered more than $1 billion in verdicts and settlements for hardworking families.
