helping to change nursing homes' "Business as usual"
Mr. Horowitz was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1987. He is a graduate of the University of San Francisco and received his undergraduate degree in political science in 1983 at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA. Since 1993, his practice has been dedicated exclusively to representing plaintiffs.
Elder abuse litigation "chose" Mr. Horowitz, since as a young lawyer he was Lead Trial Counsel and Co-Appellate Counsel in the landmark elder abuse case Delaney v. Baker (1999) 20 Cal.4th 23 decided by the California Supreme Court. This case established that the legislative intent of the Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act (EADACPA), with its unique special remedies to punish “reckless neglect” of elders – even for deceased elders –, applied to nursing homes as healthcare providers, thus allowing elders, dependent adults, and their families a legal avenue to enforce patient care over profits.
Mr. Horowitz has participated as a speaker and moderator at numerous seminars and training sessions relating to elder abuse and nursing home litigation. Throughout his career, he has been affiliated with the following associations and non-profit organizations:
While Mr. Horowitz has specialized in elder abuse and nursing home litigation throughout California, he also has litigated select personal injury, wrongful death, and medical malpractice claims.
Mr. Horowitz is a native of Long Island, New York, having migrated to Northern California in 1984. He is married and has two grown children. When not practicing law, Mr. Horowitz enjoys attending New Orleans parades and seeking out beaches and other beautiful natural settings near and far.
