    Great Attorney who was very responsive and knowlegeable!

    After contacing a particular law firm in regards to unfair charges brought against my son, I was recommended to contact Mr. Simms as he was well versed in the situation/charges. Once I called and spoke with his assistance, they put my mind at ease. He agreed to take on my case and I was provided a consultation the same week. He was very professional, attentive and knowledgeable of the charges. He kept my family informed and the end result all charges were dropped! Would highly recommend The Simms Firm!

    Thank you for saving my life

    I had a malicious wound and abduction by force and intimidation as charges in Arlington Va. These charges carried a total of 30 years, even though the malicious wound was dropped at the last minute, I went for a trial for the abduction charge which carried a 10-year sentence.
    Mr. Simms said he would be fighting for me out there, and boy did he fight for me. I had a judge who had a rope ready for me, a prosecutor with bad faith who wanted a conviction by any means necessary. I was in deep trouble.
    I knew I had a good lawyer at the opening statement, he came in with a bang, the prosecution was outclassed at the get go (and the state had its best prosecutor out there).
    During the trial process, Mr. Simms would look at a law, study and pinpoint all the discrepancies in a lightning speed. He knew the entire process, he did not need a book, or look things up, it was all in the brain. His interventions were so that objections from the prosecution were kept at a minimum. Again experience with the process and Intelligence.
    During cross examination of the witnesses I was wondering why is he asking all the questions and not doing anything with the answers? Well, it was saving the best for last. He brought all those answers to the closing arguments the next day and started tearing apart the accusation, the police, the state, and I Loved the way he looked at the partial judge when he was dismissing his eloquent arguments with a backhand - starring him right in the eyes, no backing down, no fear - Fighting for me.
    The result, a lightning 45-minutes verdict, a total of four points in one charge and I was found - NOT GUILTY-
    I didn't just get my money's worth, I got my life's worth, my children life, my family life. Being a key person in my family, a Guilty verdict would have been devastating to so many people.
    Instead, I am today in a position of force.
    Even if I had lost, I would not have regretted choosing Mr. Simms, because not only he was highly knowledgeable and smart, but he gave it his best shot, he fought very hard for me, and that's all any accused person can ask of his lawyer.

    FOR ME AND MY FAMILY, THANK YOU MR. SIMMS

    Highly Recommended

    I highly recommend Jonathan Simms. He has a lot of insight into federal and state criminal matters. He is ready and willing to file motions, prepare for trial, and/or aggressively negotiate with the prosecutor. Although he is in high demand, he is accessible and is willing to schedule appointments during weekend hours to make sure he has time to meet. He gets excellent results.

    Top Notch Attorney

    Attorney Jonathan Simms represented me in a criminal matter and was able to get my criminal charge dismissed. I have spoken to several people and he is considered one of the top criminal defense attorneys in the Nothern Virginia/Washington D.C. area. He was always easy to get in contact with and returned all of my emails and phone calls. He is very intelligent and fully explained every step of the process. We met and discussed legal strategy while my matter was pending and I was very confident in him. He is an aggressive attorney who does everything possible to defend his clients in the courtroom. I highly recommend him.

    Great Experience

    Attorney Simms was hired to represent a family member for a criminal case. He is easy to talk to and extremely professional. He did not rely on me to feed him information as another attorney had done and did an excellent job conducting himself in the courtroom. Contacting him with any questions or concerns was a breeze. Pricing is reasonable for what you would be asked to pay for a felony charge. Although we did received the desired results from the case (not guilty) we would work with him again without hesitation.

    Outstanding Attorney

    Attorney Jonathan Simms is an outstanding criminal defense attorney. He is very good at explaining legal concepts to clients and answering questions. I was always able to reach him on the phone or via email, and he was kind enough to even return calls on weekends. He is a former prosecutor who fights aggressively for his clients and offers excellent legal advice. It was clear that he is very respected by the judges and other attorneys. He's an excellent trial attorney. I highly recommend him.

    Never Hire This Lawyer.

    This is the absolute worst lawyer you could ever hire to defend you in a criminal case. He does not even know how to read a criminal statute. This lawyer does not even understand or know how to interpret a criminal statute. He will not respond to your emails or phone calls. He is untrustworthy and totally unreliable. He will lie to you and say that he talked to the prosecutor when he really did not. He should be disbarred for taking cases that he has no intention of preparing any kind of defense. He just wants to take your money and run. Stay away from this lawyer or you will regret it.
