As a partner at the New York office, Moshe Horn is dedicated to expanding the firm’s litigation capabilities in asbestos, mass tort and class action practices. His responsibilities include trial work, litigations, working with experts, depositions and training newer attorneys.

Having successfully tried over 100 cases to verdict, Moshe is a formidable trial lawyer and legal strategist. He is one of few lawyers who have tried cases as a prosecutor, a criminal defense lawyer, a plaintiff’s attorney and a civil defense attorney.

His accomplishments include various multimillion-dollar verdicts for clients, including:

  • $47 million verdict in a class action case
  • $2.4 million plaintiff’s verdict in a bus accident in upstate New York
  • Member of the trial team that obtained a $47 million verdict in a case involving the drug Vioxx

Prior to joining Simmons Hanly Conroy, Moshe worked at Gitlin, Horn & Van de Kieft, a small litigation firm. His past experience also includes working on pharmaceutical and class action litigation at Seeger Weiss, a leading mass tort firm, and on asbestos and product liability defense at Kaye Scholer before that.

Before entering private practice Moshe worked for 10 years as an assistant District Attorney in The Manhattan District Attorney’s office where he worked on street crime, sex crimes and white collar investigations.

Fighting for His Clients

Moshe is known for his hands-on approach with those who work with him, offering his personal cell phone number to clients and making himself available at all times. He emphasizes teamwork, ensuring clients feel like valued partners in the pursuit of the best possible outcome in their case.

“I love working with clients, hearing their stories and hoping I am able to help them,” Moshe shared. “Sometimes you are the only advocate they have, and that reminds me of why I went to law school.”

Having defended companies like Pfizer and Merck, Moshe gained invaluable insight into corporate litigation strategies. This experience helps in strategizing to represent plaintiffs, where he believes he can make the most meaningful impact.

“I know what it’s like to be the underdog, whether it’s fighting law enforcement or against a corporate company,” Moshe said. “My criminal background taught me that everyone deserves their day in court and deserves to be treated with dedication and dignity.”

His Legal Background

Moshe’s exceptional work has been recognized with numerous awards and honors, including Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers in America, Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame, Best Lawyers in New York, Top 100 Trial Lawyers and Multimillion Dollar Advocates Forum.

Moshe has served as an adjunct professor of law at Cardozo Law School since 1998 teaching courses in trial advocacy, and business for lawyers and has  received the Best Adjunct Professor Award. He has served as the chair of the New York City Bar Product Liability Committee and remains actively involved in community service.

Currently, he’s a mock trial coach at Heschel High School, a member of the Board of Trustees at Camp Ramah in the Berkshires, a member of the board of the Malik James Foundation and a legal advisor to PAVE (Parents Against Vaping and Electronic Cigarettes).

Moshe is also a sought-after speaker, frequently conducting continuing legal education (CLE) instruction for Lawline on trial advocacy, technology and legal ethics. He has also given CLE presentations for Marino and American Association for Justice (AAJ). In addition, Moshe speaks at schools and parent groups about potential criminal issues facing teens and college-age students.
