James Horwitz, Attorney, Houston Texas

James S. Horwitz, Attorney

Before law school, while James Horwitz was in college and later in graduate school, he was a leader in the youth services field for many years developing half-way houses for runaway and throwaway kids in the greater Houston and Texas area.

This early 1970s phenomenon of helping youth in distress mushroomed throughout the United States resulting in his participation in Washington, D.C. assisting in the creation of national legislation that developed the National Runaway Youth Hotline, as well as funding for community centers throughout the United States.

During law school, James created a number of tax exempt organizations servicing the needs of families in distress in the Houston, Texas area. He was instrumental in both writing grants seeking assistance from the private sector–including businesses, foundations, and religious institutions–as well as writing applications in response to requests for proposals from governmental entities, city, county, state, and federal.

His experience in working with youth service oriented organizations resulted in his frequent attendance in juvenile court on behalf of children and their families as well as being a resource for juvenile court judges on many cases. Hence his foundation in juvenile, criminal, and family law.

Obviously, the needs of those businesses were varied and required a person who could wear many “hats” on a daily basis. Upon completion of law school in 1977 and admittance to the Texas Bar, the concept of James Horwitz being a general counsel came about out of necessity in order to fully service the needs of the organizations he created and now represented as an attorney.
