  • John Edgar Mallonee

    During the ten or more years I have known Mr. Simmons, I have learned the following -- his considerable skill at courtroom advocacy and legal analysis is only outpaced by his ability to quickly grasp the nuances of the motivations of multiple parties, and effectively negotiate the optimal outcome for his client. His combination of intellect, assertiveness, and passion for his clients’ needs make him the lawyer I would rely on for complex litigation.
