Awards and Ratings
Warner was selected to the 2019 Midsouth Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” list, which recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys – those who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing 10 years or less.
Warner, a member of the Alabama State Bar, says in some ways he always knew he was going to be a lawyer. Both his father, Clay Hornsby, and his grandfather, Sonny Hornsby, are attorneys. Sonny (who he calls Poppee) was Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in the ’90s, is a past president of the State Bar and of the Trial Lawyers Association, which goes by the Alabama Association for Justice now. His father was also a president of the Alabama Association for Justice.
On his mother, Nancy Hornsby’s, side is Joe Ed and Betty Hastings, who both live in Montgomery. “Papa Joe” is a Methodist minister, like his father before him. Warner’s mother is also a Methodist minister. He has one sister, Judith Hornsby, who is 21 and is a junior at Auburn.
Warner attends First United Methodist of Montgomery, in Cloverdale, which is also where “Papa Joe” and “Bet-Bet” (his mom’s parents) go to church.
Warner played soccer in college and follows the English Premier League regularly; his favorite team is Arsenal. He is also a proud supporter of the 16-time national champion Crimson Tide football team, as well as other Alabama sports. He also enjoys deer hunting, and spending time at Lake Martin, where his family has a cabin.
