Michael Horn, attorney. Branson, Missouri trial attorney.
My family was very happy with Michael's work. He was always honest and direct and his staff very organized and great communication skills. We were told up front about costs so we could be prepared. My cousin didn't speak English and I was out of town so they recommended an amazing interpreter who was also very helpful throughout the entire process, including followup classes he had to take. He recommended another attorney more specialized in another type of case that we also had, instead of just taking our money and messing up the case. Important to add that everyone in this office was very respectful of cultural and language differences and so accommodating. If anyone ever has a problem here, they probably need to check their own issues. We have had several lawyers over the years and Michael is the best! Highly recommend!!

I've had the opportunity to work with Mr. Horn, and I think he is an intelligent, well-spoken, and thoughtful advocate for his clients. He does an excellent job, and you'd be wise to meet with him if you have a family law/custody case that needs a great attorney.

Micheal, and his staff have defended my son
Over false allagations of abuse of my grandkids.
This went on for 3 years.
The result was amazing.
My son ended up with custody of 2 kids 5 and 4 years old. With very limited visits for his ex.
