Mr. Simmons really helped my son with his burglary case. My son has been in special needs education from kindergarden thru high school and is easily misled by supposed "friends". Mr. Simmons explained to our son what to expect in court and how to behave. He also let us (as parents) know what to expect and how to address our concerns to the judge. The trial went the best that could be expected and the results exceeded our expectations -- due in a large part to Mr. Simmons' experience and working relationships with the prosecuting attorney and the judge. The judge incorporated our suggests into our son's probation plan and we couldn't have asked for a better response! We were very pleased with how Mr. Simmons worked with our son and how he did not allow our son to mislead himself as to what was really going to happen. My wife and I agree that we could not have picked a better attorney.

Mr. Simmons is worth his weight in gold. He represented me in a case that could have sent me to jail and placed a felony on my record. Throughout the process he made me perfectly aware of what my options were and was very clear of the possibilities. As a result of his representation, I not only avoided incarceration but I was able to expunge my record after probation. If you need a lawyer, call Butler and Simmons. I'm glad I did.

"Mr. Simmons was referred to me by another lawyer who told me that he is the only person qualified and experienced enough to handle my case. Throughout the trial he took time to calm me down and help me to stay positive. He kept me totally informed about his plan and the status of each step as they progressed. My main concern was going to jail because in my case there was a good chance I would have to serve time. When I found out that he was going to be able to keep me out of jail and get all eight of the felony charges dropped to one misdemeanor I couldn't have been more impressed with his abilities. Furthermore, he spoke to the judge about removing everything from my record in four years time. I was worried about losing everything I had and going to jail for a long time. When you hear the judge say that you are free to go, it's an awesome feeling. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Simmons!"
