Attorney Profile
Charles A. Horowitz

The practice of law is equal parts science, art, and sweat. My diverse intellectual and “real world” experiences, along with a strong work ethic, have informed my nearly 20-year professional career. Over that period, I have represented dozens of individual and business clients in state and federal court actions covering an array of practice areas. I believe in open and frequent communication with clients, and always place their interest first, focusing on creative, cost-effective means to resolve complex, seemingly intractable legal disputes.

Charles Horowitz Minneapolis Business Attorney

I am a Hopkins, Minnesota native and graduate cum laude from Breck School in Golden Valley, at which I lettered in track and cross country and was a member of its semi-finalist High School Bowl team. In 1986, I received my Bachelors of Arts degree with Honors in European History from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. During college, I participated in various extracurricular activities, including competing on the lightweight crew team and studying German one summer in Cologne, Germany.

In the three years following graduation, I held a variety of jobs, including deliveryman, store clerk, and paralegal, before pursuing my legal education. In 1991, I graduated in the top quarter of my class from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law, at which I served as an executive editor of the Washington University School of Law Journal of Urban and Contemporary Law.

Professional Experience

Prior to establishing my own law firm in 2011, I was with the medium-sized Minneapolis firm of Mansfield Tanick & Cohen, P.A. for eleven years, initially as an associate and then as a partner. Before returning to Minnesota, I spent most of the 1990s in New York City, where I met my wife Robin, a librarian, and practiced law at the boutique Wall Street insurance defense firm of Speyer & Perlberg and the prestigious defense firm of Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman.

I am a member in good standing of the Minnesota and New York bars, and have written extensively on the topics of employment law, veteran’s rights and shareholder litigation.

Other Interests

Outside of work, I enjoy time with my family, music, bicycling, and photography.
