Attorney Profile

A partner at the Law Office of Smith & Horwitz, Adam M. Horwitz focuses his practice exclusively on divorce and other family law matters. Based in Philadelphia, he works with clients throughout the region, including Montgomery, Bucks, Delaware and Chester counties. Mr. Horwitz has been with the firm since January 2008, and he is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania as well as in New Jersey.

Mr. Horwitz knows that many of his family law clients are going through an emotional and stressful time when they are facing the end of their marriages. He provides them with advice and counsel on dealing with divorce-related issues such as parenting time, the division of marital assets and financial obligations, and child and spousal support. When possible, Mr. Horwitz helps them come to an accord on these matters through negotiations or mediation, but when those alternative dispute resolution methods prove to be unfruitful and litigation becomes necessary, he fights on their behalf in family court.

In addition to his divorce caseload, Mr. Horwitz has frequently prepared and reviewed prenuptial and postmarital agreements, and he has helped people who have already obtained divorce decrees but now need to have existing support or parenting court orders modified. Held in high regard by his fellow attorneys, he has received several honors and awards and holds a “Superb” rating on Avvo.

Mr. Horwitz attended the University of Massachusetts and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1997. After obtaining a Master of Education from the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling, he enrolled at Temple University Beasley School of Law, graduating with his Juris Doctor degree in 2004.
