Type of Case: Mass Transit Accident (Metra) Result: $2.1 million dollars “I was in a Metra Train Accident in September 2005, and I hired Mark Horwitz as my lawyer. My experience with Mark has been wonderful. He’s very considerate. He’s caring. Every time he calls me, the first thing that he says is, how are you feeling and how is your family, and I really, really appreciate that. If I didn’t have Mark Horwitz as my lawyer, I think I’d be lost. I don’t think any other lawyer would give me the information that I needed to feel comfortable that the case is moving in the right direction.” – Marie Bullock The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin released an article detailing the $2.1 million settlement for Marie shortly after it was announced.

My daughter was severely injured in a car accident and I was nervous about finding a personal injury attorney, but from the start, I felt confident with my choice in the Horwitz Law Group. Mark was completely professional, trustworthy, communicative, honest and helpful. He kept my daughter focused throughout her entire recovery, both emotionally and medically. He was extremely attentive and responsive answering each and every question I had in a timely manner and explained everything in laymen terms - always keeping me informed of every step along the way. Mark was honest with us and didn't make outlandish promises but most of all he wanted what was best for my daughter and not just a paycheck. He and his team were instrumental in saving us huge amounts in medical bills as well as garnering a settlement award that was very much welcomed. Not only did they resolve the case beyond our satisfaction, they also were very caring and supportive thru my daughter's recovery. I couldn't ask for a better attorney and I couldn't recommend him more. It is my hope that I will never need legal representation again, but should I find that I do Mark J Horwitz will…
