We were referred to Joe Simon by a mutual friend who has working knowledge of the Washtenaw County Court System, after criminal charges were brought against our young adult son. We had no previous experience being "on this side of the law", and we unexpectedly found ourselves in a state of emotional terror. From day one Joe fit us into his schedule and without hesitation offered his skilled, expert services. He quickly educated us on the possible outcomes: worst, best & miraculous. For four months Joe walked us through the complicated court proceedings and ultimately delivered "the miraculous" outcome for our son's future. Based upon what we have learned during this experience, we firmly believe that this beneficial outcome could not have been achieved by another attorney. Joe and his extremely professional team treated our family with dignity and respect at all times. Joe Simon is a highly respected attorney, a wonderful man and the answer to our most fervent prayers! We remain forever grateful.

Joe did an excellent job overall. He knew the case details and potential risks. Defended me well resulting in an innocent verdict. Prosecutor was more interested in a conviction than justice. Thank goodness for Joe!

Joe Simon is a fantastic lawyer. He is very intelligent, quick on his feet, and really spends lots of time on each individual case. He knows the legal system very well and always has a great strategy for each case and individual person. Overall, great lawyer.

Joe Simon is AMAZING. As a parent of a son who was facing the scariest time in his life, Joe came highly recommended and exceeded all expectations. Joe is a straight shooter who doesn’t sugar coat anything and is very thorough in explaining every important part of the process so that there are no surprises. He is there for his client (and his parents!) to answer questions and make recommendations throughout the process. Joe is at home in the courthouse and is a true star in the courtroom. He knows all the prosecutors, judges, bailiffs, etc. and is clearly well respected by them all. Most impressive is how quick Joe is in the courtroom. His cross-examination ability is incredible. He got the absolute best result for our son and we cannot recommend him highly enough.

I can't express my gratitude to Joe Simon enough. I had a very complicated legal issue that could have resulted in a five year sentence but at the very least one year. I did not have to spend anytime in jail other than the day of my arrest. I was put on bond and set free after the trial that Joe masterfully handled. It was apparent to me that everyone in the system knows Joe well and he is respected. This is so important when dealing with the criminal system.. A lawyer needs to be in good standing with judges, prosectors and probation. in order to work the best for you. Joe is aces.
I have used Joe on two matters and both times had outstanding results. He does not sugarcoat words so don't get scared turing the process. He is always honest. He's trustworthy and works hard on your behalf. He cares about your case or he would not take it. He's compassionate yet tough. You want a tough guy fighting for you. Take his advice and follow it. I am glad I did and would trust him with my life. He's worth the investment. This is your future and you want the best-you found him! Hands down. My own brother who is a lawyer told me call Joe and I am so glad I did.
Thanks Joe for helping me through a bad time and I hope this review encourages others to put their faith in you too. God bless- SK

We retained Joseph Simon as our daughter who attends the University of Michigan was charged with a misdemeanor. Being that we live out of state, our concern was to of course retain proper representation with an open line of communication so we would be kept informed every step of the way. Being that any criminal charge is extremely foreign to us, Mr. Simon took his time, explaining what we should expect, what our options were and advised us accordingly. As we put our trust into a complete stranger, I am pleased to report that Mr. Simon was able to get our case resolved in expedited fashion, keeping us informed every step of the way and his efforts, efficiency and professionalism deserve to be recognized. While I realize that every case may be different and all results may not be as positive as ours, Mr. Simon exceeded our expectations and strongly believe that anyone in our situation should certainly consider Mr. Simon and his firm for representation.

I really couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case handled by Joe Simon. He was knowledgeable about the law, about the parties involved, and gave me reasonable expectations for the outcome, which were then exceeded. Also, he and his staff were incredibly friendly and responsive.

Some general statement: Mr. Simon is an excellent Attorney. He is very informed, has an exceptional staff, and is committed to his clients. He is honest, of high moral character, and he is very clear and thorough in his correspondence.
What impressed me specifically: Mr. Simon's capacity to put such efforts into someone else's welfare. To a client such as myself, the court case at hand may appear larger than life. My case was of supreme importance to me, and had the potential to change the course of my future. I know Mr. Simon did his best on my behalf (spoiler alert: we won my case.) What was impressive to me was that I did not feel Mr. Simon gave me any more attention than he did his other clients. I got the impression that not only was Mr. Simon handling my case with extreme skill, professionalism, and attention, but that Mr. Simon was handling my case with the same thoroughness he handles all his cases. He is such a pro.
I went through several attorneys before I found Mr. Simon. Because of the complexities (and oddities) of my particular case, I can say with certainty that if I had not found a knowledgeable, confident, honest attorney I would not have stood a chance. Because of the Joe’s character and encouragement I found the strength to stand up for myself in the face of intimidating charges.
Mr. Simon has my most genuine recommendation. I know you will get the same top-class treatment. In him, you will find honest, excellent representation. His firm is legendary.

I was first referred to Mr. Simon by a public defender, who said if he was in my situation he would call Mr. Simon. This proved to be a lifesaving choice. Mr. Simon had a close relationship with the prosecutor, and was able to convince the prosecutor to drop one charge that was pending against me before it even reached the courtroom. This was an unusual bit of leniency that resulted directly from his pre-trial efforts with the prosecutor. On the other charge, he convinced the prosecutor to request an unusual deferred sentence that would allow the charge to disappear from my record after a period of probation. He knows what he is doing, and his services were worth every penny.

Without divulging the detail of our cases he handled, Joe Simon and his firm demonstrated in-depth understanding of the laws, ordinances and/or regulations of the legal violations we were addressing. Leveraging this insight, he and his team identified and pursued remedies that were consistent with the spirit of the laws and allowed us to mitigate the impact of the violations.
In all cases, Joe and his firm kept us informed of the track, objective, and likelihood of a workable outcome. He was successful in achieving the outcomes we all agreed were acceptable. This further reinforces my appreciation of his ability to present our position with professional insight and skill.
Our cases did involve one or more appearances before a judge in court. The guidance from his firm and their handling of presenting our cases and situation to the prosecutor and judge provided us with structure and discipline (legal protocol) that we would not have had otherwise.
Regarding the cases addressed, Joe was firm and fair in insuring we understand our responsibility for our actions and to conduct ourselves without further violations.
Should the need arise, I would not hesitate to work with Joe and his firm again.
