Richard F. Horsley

Sole Practitioner
Birmingham, Alabama

Every legal matter that an attorney runs across is unique, but not every attorney treats it as such. My name is Richard F. Horsley, and in the 20 years I have spent as a Birmingham, Alabama, attorney, I have learned that the highest quality legal representation begins with personal attention and care in each case.

I bring this approach to every individual who walks through my door. You may be in need of help in employment law and sexual harassment cases. You may be struggling with a personal injury. You may be concerned that someone you care about has suffered nursing home neglect and abuse. Whatever your legal needs are, I can be a steady hand to rely on and help you achieve the best outcome possible in your case.

While some cases warrant relentless pursuit of results in litigation and courtroom proceedings, many others can be settled with fewer headaches and expenses in skillful negotiations of settlements. It takes an experienced attorney to thoroughly analyze your case and help you pursue the right legal recourse.

My main goal is to help my clients retain control of their lives. To that end, I make sure that decision-making remains in their hands. I am here to inform them of their rights, advise them of the legal process, and make recommendations regarding the most effective ways to get results.

I encourage you to contact me online or by telephone at 205-383-2169 as soon as possible so you can have your questions answered. I offer free initial consultations in all cases, so do not hesitate to get the help you need today.
