Horowitz, a partner in Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend, says the award is named for attorney Reich Chandler, who died of cancer in 2006.
“It’s one of the most humbling honors I’ve ever been given,” Horowitz says. “To be considered in the same breath as a man like Reich Chandler is an incredible honor. He was an incredible advocate, an incredible father and husband.”
Horowitz says TTLA created the award in 2007 to recognize people who try to live a balanced life, put family first, have a strong connection to faith, recognize the strength and importance of tradition and are dedicated to the professionalism and ethics in the practice of law.
Horowitz, a 2002 graduate of South Texas College of Law, says he has served on the TTLA board of directors since 2006.
