Continuing a long tradition, Horvitz & Levy is again ranked top among peers by the world renowned Chambers Guide. The 2019 USA edition of Chambers recognizes the firm for accomplishments in appellate and insurance law, noting that the legal community calls out Horvitz & Levy as a “first-rate shop.” The guide describes the firm as a “highly regarded appellate boutique with outstanding strengths in civil disputes, making regular appearances before the Ninth Circuit and the California Supreme Court. Acts for an impressive roster of high-profile clients, including household names in the manufacturing, energy and media sectors.”

In addition to firmwide recognition, several attorneys have also been designated as top-tier for their skill, client service, and legal acumen. David Axelrad is described by peers as "a good advocate" and "devastatingly effective." Lisa Perrochet is referred to by industry sources as "a very excellent and accomplished lawyer." She acts for clients in a wide range of major appeals, including product liability, insurance coverage and professional liability matters. An industry colleague states: "She has the ear of the judges and can command a courtroom." John Taylor is described as a seasoned appellate practitioner, having argued important cases involving entertainment, insurance and probate law. He is regarded as a "a good all-around advocate" and frequently handles matters in California's state and federal appellate courts. Mitchell Tilner has been recognized in both appellate and insurance advocacy and sources describe him as "smart and a great writer who expresses himself succinctly, masters issues and puts things across extremely well."
