    Client Comments

    "Mr. Jed Horwitt is as "client friendly" as any attorney I have ever experienced. His knowledge in his field of expertise is unparalled and the ability to communicate issues, no matter the degree of sensitively, is always accomplished with professionalism and without compromising the client's interest. He is hard driving, creative, flexible, and thorough. Mr. Horwitt was instrumental in negotiating a successful deal with our lending institution and, believe me, my company would not have been as highly regarded today in the industry without the assistance from Jed.
