Jacob W. Horwitz was the first in the family to become an attorney. He founded the law firm that became Horwitz, Anesi and Ozmon. He practiced from 1921 until his death in 1963 representing workers. In the meantime, his son Andrew J. Horwitz became a principal partner in the firm.
Attorney Andrew J. Horwitz was a renowned trial attorney who pioneered the concept of “hedonic damages” that is now recognized across the nation. In 1978, Mitchell Horwitz, Andrew’s son, joined Andrew as one of his partners. In 1988, Clifford Horwitz (another of Andrew’s sons), after having achieved a string of record-setting jury verdicts, joined his brother and father as a partner in what became Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates.
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 routinely take advantage of those who have been injured. Clifford and Mitchell Horwitz are third generation Chicago personal injury trial lawyers who continue that tradition. Our firm has never represented corporate interests and never will.
