Daniel Horowitz successfully represented the East Bay’s largest LGBT Nightclub, the Bench & Bar, during the days when the bar was the continual focus of hateful attacks by both neighbors and the police.  He represented the Hell’s Angels motorcycle club and is the only person to have done a real estate appraisal for the Oakland Club House.  That appraisal was accepted as security for bail for members during the San Diego prosecution of the club.

Pavel Lazarenko



Former Prime Minister of Ukraine


Daniel Horowitz represents former Prime Minister of Ukraine, Pavel Lazarenko in his decades long battle to restore his good name in his battle against corruption in Ukraine.

Pavel Lazarenko was innocent of all charges against him, but the web woven by the Pro Russian Ukraine administration, ensnared him.

The International Charges

Daniel Horowitz handled the international charges filed against Pavel Lazarenko.  View Lazarenko Superseding Indictment. These charges were brought in the United States District Court in San Francisco but involved conduct in Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, Canada, The Netherlands and Cyprus.  The government claimed fraud in the handling of natural gas transactions and agriculture activities involving the State owned farm. All of the international counts were thrown out. Tragically, a small number of counts based upon conduct with a U.S. based business partner were handled by another attorney and those counts resulted in conviction.

The current Ukraine crisis and the Putin takeover of Crimea arises from the mistaken support of the Pro-Russian government that pressed these false charges against the Pro USA Prime Minister (Lazarenko).

The United States prosecuted an innocent man (Lazarenko) for misguided political reasons. The Pro-Russian politicians who targeted Lazarenko do not share our American values. They oppress women and social minorities. Pavel Lazarenko is a champion of women’s rights. His pro Western views and his belief in a free economy angered the dictators of Ukraine and there was a back door deal that led to his arrest. We actually have recordings of the dictator of Ukraine asking a subordinate, “which of our opponents should we feed to the Americans.”

Ukraine has never recovered from the persecution of Pavel Lazarenko. It fell into the grip of the Pro-Russian, murderous clan that strangled the life of the Ukraine people. When the Pro-Russian oligarch was  thrown out of power by the people of Ukraine, Putin moved in and took over Crimea. To quote Paul Harvey, “Now you the know the rest of the story”.
