Orlando criminal lawyer +Richard Hornsby spoke with +Orlando Sentinel reporter +Jeff Weiner about a Boca Raton lawyer's controversial advise on how to respond to law enforcement officers at traffic stops and DUI checkpoints.
When a car pulls to a stop at a DUI checkpoint, police say they're looking for obvious signals that the driver may be impaired: glassy eyes, slurred speech, the smell of alcohol.

Called to seek advice regarding an upcoming injunction proceeding. Being that this is the first time finding myself in this situation, and an abuse victim, I would expect compassion from the attorney that I hire. Unfortunately, this attorney is RUDE and has no compassion at all. In fact, he would not even let me finish explaining my situation but instead rudley interrupted me by saying, "Do you have an actual question?". Extremely unprofessional. I am happy to take my case elsewhere!

Response from the owner - 2 weeks ago
Ms. Betts (or should I call you Stephanie since this is a fake account): While it is true I asked if you had "an actual question," I only did so after asking you two previous times what questions I could answer for you. As you know you called me minutes before I was about to close and remarked, "I know you're about to close, but could you answer a few questions for me?" My response was "sure, what questions can I answer for you." You then went off on procedural tangents explaining that your case was coming up soon, you were not even sure if you needed an attorney, and you were not sure if I was the right type of attorney. Ironically, you never even got around to telling me what your case was about, much less that you were a victim of some sorts. Regardless, each time I asked you to tell me about your situation and what questions I could answer for you, you declined to ask an actual question. So yes, on the third time of you going off on a tangent without asking a question, I interjected with "whether you had an actual question." While I realize this may have been curt, I very much wanted to close for the day and go see my children before they went to sleep. You knew it was late since you remarked as much when I answered. Regardless, to me, needlessly taking up someone's time right before they are about to close even though they have offered to answer any questions you may have is much ruder than politely asking a direct question to someone looking for free advice.

If you're looking for an aggressive and knowledgeable advocate who provides you with the level of reassurance needed matters, I highly recommend Richard. I found Richard to be very personable and available to answer any questions I had. I will refer him to any future business that I encounter.

I spent two weeks interviewing attorneys when I needed to hire representation for a violation of probation case with four alleged charges against my boyfriend. With VOPs, the burden of proof on the state is even lighter as there is no jury trial but the discretion of the judge only so it felt like an uphill climb. I couldn't just hire any attorney and needed one of the best. Mr. Hornsby had excellent reviews and even posts results of past cases on his website for your review which is quite rare. I was nervous but had high expectations. Mr. Hornsby not only met those expectations but far succeeded them. He doesn’t waste your time and will not settle for less than the best possible outcome for your situation. He was very assertive and impressive going in with all guns blazing at the bond hearing; the state floundered and the judge dismissed all four VOP charges. I am beyond thrilled at Mr. Hornsby’s representation. I hope I am never in a situation where I need to hire a criminal defense attorney again, but if I am, the first and only person I will contact for legal representation will be Mr. Hornsby. Thanks again! <3

I highly recommend Richard Hornsby for your defense attorney. He is no nonsense, efficient, and quick. He really does give you the best outcome for your case and provides great advise-- these are things I highly look for in a lawyer and was assured that everything was being taken care of to the best of its ability. My process was less painful than my peers who had similar cases to mine (and those who just used a public defense attorney-- their stories are downright horrific compared to mine). I will always refer my friends or family who need defense representation to Hornsby (in fact I have a friend I referred who is using him now, and he has nothing but good things to say). We never want to have to be in a situation where we need a lawyer, but if that situation arrises for my friends or family-- I will always recommend Richard. Don't trust just anyone with your case-- It is serious and can affect you for years to come. Choosing the right lawyer is just as important as choosing the right doctor. Make sure you put your case in the right hands and who will truly fight for your very best interest.

Mr. Hornsby represented my son following his arrest on drug possession charges in Orange County, Florida in January 2014. My wife and I live in Georgia and received advice on obtaining legal representation from friends in Orange County, who recommended Mr. Hornsby. Mr. Hornsby is a no nonsense attorney who handled our son’s case skillfully. He responded quickly to our questions and concerns during the confusing first weeks our son’s incarceration. A defense attorney friend of ours in Georgia followed the case and thinks that Mr. Hornsby did an excellent job. At our request, Mr. Hornsby also recommended an inpatient rehabilitation facility, which turned out to be an excellent choice. Mr. Hornsby continued to represent our son for one year until he completed the Drug Court program. I highly recommend him as a defense attorney.

If you want a "straight shooter" "tell it like it is", "Pit-bull" on your side, hire Richard. I had a great experience having Richard on my side. I never had to worry about whether or not he was fighting for me. He doesn't waste time nor beat around the bush, he goes straight for the throat. Thanks Richard!
