As a successful street lawyer, Brian knows first-hand that the people of Davidson County deserve a better, more positive experience when they enter our courts. They deserve a Judge who will both obey the law, but also accept creative pleas that avoid lifelong criminal records for some of Nashville’s most vulnerable individuals.
Born and raised right here in Nashville, Brian is uniquely qualified to make a difference within our court system. His father attended one of the first integrated classes at Meharry Medical College and his mother graduated from Lipscomb Academy. From an early age, Brian was taught the values of inclusion and faith.
Upon graduation from Battle Ground Academy, Brian took his talents to the University of Tennessee, where he earned a degree in Finance. Almost all judgments have a financial component, and it’s incredibly important to practice fiscal responsibility from the bench. Brian understands that participants in the courtroom come from all economic classes, and the ability of those participants to pay fines and fees should be taken into account. We have to STOP criminalizing poverty.
However, change doesn’t happen on its own. Over a decade ago, Attorney Brian Horowitz received an MBA from Belmont University specializing in Negotiation and Mediation. Brian uses these tools in the courtroom daily, and he will continue to encourage other members of the judiciary to be less draconian and punitive.
Attorney Brian Horowitz is sharp and brings the fresh, creative attitude that our court system desperately needs.
On August 4th, GO vote for Brian Horowitz for Davidson County General Sessions Judge, Division 9. He’s the fairest of them all!
