We never back down from a fight in defense of your interests

We understand that going to court is not the only option. However, we are not afraid to fight for our clients, and we prepare every case as if it is going to trial. We are sophisticated trial attorneys who build strong cases for plaintiffs and defendants in routine and complex litigation at trial or on appeal.

When possible, we offer practical guidance to avoid costly and unnecessary litigation. However, if litigation is necessary, we strive to minimize costs while achieving the most effective results in state, federal and military courts.

Horger and Connor, LLC can assist you in the following areas:

  • Insurance defense ― We handle first-party claims and litigation for major insurance companies and a variety of tort litigation for their insureds. We also defend insurance companies against bad faith claims.
  • Litigation ― We represent clients in civil, criminal and military litigation matters. We protect your interests, rights and freedom in state, federal and appellate courts.
  • Probate administration and litigation ― We understand how hard it is to begin the legal process after a loved one dies. We can assist you with filing the will, proving the will or trust is valid, transferring your loved one's property to the beneficiaries, resolving debts and settling disputes.
  • Domestic and family law ― We know that each family is different and each family law case brings its own specific challenges. We represent clients in divorce, military divorce, child custody, child and spousal support, modifications, paternity actions, pre- and postnuptial agreements, and other matters.
