Horne Law History and Mission
Horne Law LLC is an Indianapolis law firm started by attorney William McHenry “Terry” Horne.
A former newspaper editor and reporter, William served as a law clerk for a United States District Court judge and as an associate for Lewis & Kappes, P.C., a medium-sized business litigation firm. However, in 2009, he realized that he was interested in carving out his own practice focusing on civil litigation and aimed at helping others, so he started Horne Law.
Over the past five years, Horne Law has been engaged in a variety of matters ranging from litigation involving a Fortune 500 subsidiary to family law and personal injury matters. It has helped parents obtain educational services for their children with disabilities, and various personal injury matters.
In 2013, William took on additional duties, serving for two years as a deputy attorney general in the civil litigation section of the Office of the Indiana Attorney General. While there, he defended numerous State of Indiana employees, including educators, state police and correctional officers and other officials from allegations of civil rights violations. He also represented numerous State agencies in various contract disputes, declaratory actions and other litigation matters. He resolved more than 120 matters before returning to Horne Law full time in March 2015.
Although a one-attorney firm, Horne Law has partnered with other attorneys on some matters and will continue to enlist other counsel on behalf of its clients when appropriate.
The firm is located in a nicely appointed cottage just south of the Broad Ripple business district on the north side of Indianapolis. The firm shares office space with three other attorneys, each of whom maintain independent practices in the areas of criminal law, estates, and immigration law. These practices are not connected with Horne Law.
