About The Firm

Horton, Oberrecht, Kirkpatrick & Martha, APC, is a pure civil litigation defense firm specializing in jury trials across California. The firm has tried over 100 cases involving catastrophic injury, routine auto, trucking, premises liability, and products liability.

The firm also specializes in the defense of construction defect litigation. The firm’s construction defect department handles cases efficiently and economically, with good results. Many carriers pick up our tenders and share with us. The firm can also handle mold and environmental cases.

Horton, Oberrecht, Kirkpatrick & Martha, APC is dedicated to the efficient, but zealous defense of its clients. With main offices in San Diego and Orange County, and satellite offices in Riverside and Sacramento, the firm practices across California, from San Diego to Mount Shasta.

The firm’s larger carriers who have house counsel send us their catastrophic injury cases. The firm has a speciality in brain injury cases, burns, and products liability suits.

The firm’s carriers who do not have house counsel send their soft tissue auto P.I. cases because the firm handles them as efficiently as house counsel, and does not over discover such cases.


Free Brain Damage Newsletter

Luther W. Horton sends a free newsletter to claims professionals about defending brain injury cases. The newsletter is about how plaintiffs can fake brain injury cases by not giving their best effort on the pen and paper neuropsychological tests. The newsletter relies upon published articles from noted experts throughout the country in head injury cases. For requests on certain subjects, please send your requests to lhorton@hortonfirm.com.
