Tim Simonson changed my families lives for the better.
Does Tim sound like he knows what he is talking about? Check
Does Tim explain it calmly to you so you can feel confident in the next step of your case? Check
Does Tim keep his emotions in check so that he can work on the case to the best of his abilities? Check
Things to look for in a lawyer is being comfortable around them which is easy around Tim. A clear structure of payments due which is broken down per bill. Plenty of communication and availability which is what you will get from Tim. I can call Tim right now and fully expect he'd pick up the phone. In the off chance he's already with a client I'll get a call back within the hour. He's awesome.
Heck our Judge had no idea what they were doing and was making the wrong calls according to the law. A lesser lawyer would have LOST that case and my family would be split right now in two different states. Tim set that Judge straight. Think about that. That Judge has to have a Giant sized Ego at this point and the last thing on earth they want to do is admit they were wrong. That's quite the uphill battle but we're all together here because he was up to the challenge.
The internet can be a negative place sometimes. Go look at the "Yelp" reviews for your favorite restaurant. Search by rating then hit it again to get the lowest ratings first....go ahead...I'll wait. Back, good. Notice how many people HATE your favorite restaurant, sad isn't it. Which is why you can't use online reviews for anything, even this one. You have to go do this in person. Go meet with Tim and you'll be happy you did.

My experience with Tim Simonson at Claussen and Hassan was exceptional. My reason for hiring Tim was because of a custody dispute. Tim was very kind and very patient with me. I had a lot of doubts and worries and anxieties throughout the entire case, which was very long. He always promptly responded to emails and phone calls, and any questions I had. Tim is very knowledgeable, and very intelligent. He knows the law and he knows your rights and where you fall within your rights. Tim fought for my son and I and he won our case in full. I think that, when people are dealing with any type of dispute and are part of the legal system, it is hard to remember or understand the process, and the time it takes to get some kind of relief. Having an attorney like Tim who stays calm and listens to you is probably the number 1 thing a person needs to find when looking to hire an attorney. I truly believe Tim was a God send to my case. I had spoken to other attorneys before finding Tim and it seemed like they were just going to settle and not fight for what was right- they gave me no hope. The amount of gratitude I have for Tim cannot be put in words. He is a really great attorney and a genuine person.

I am so thankful to have had Tim Simonson represent me during my divorce. He made the process as easy as it could be for me especially during this tough time. I recommend Tim to all.

Tim is a meticulous lawyer, always dotting the "I"s and crossing the "T"s, making sure there are no holes in the case. He is very caring and knowledgeable. Tim prefers to settle things amicably and peacefully. I was determined to head straight to trial and Tim convinced me that that wasn't the best course of action for my case. The end result was highly in my favor! I will definitely consult Tim on any legal matters that should arise in the future.

Tim seems knowledgable and caring when you first meet him but he shows his weaknesses in court and when making critical decisions. Tim ended up making my custody situation worse and I regret trusting him. His responsiveness is great and he'll be sure to bill you for every minute, and possibly more. In my opinion his hourly fee is extremely outrageous for his level of knowledge and expertise. I would not recommend Tim to anyone.

Overall I was very happy with the job Tim did. I chose Tim after interviewing 4 lawyers for the case, because of his calm demeanor, his ability to explain what the process would be like, and his approach to attempt to resolve the case as amicably as possible.
Unfortunately the other party chose to make the process about as difficult as they possibly could with what should have been a simple case. Not only did Tim work diligently to try and resolve the case, he was also sympathetic towards how unrealistic & difficult them being was effecting my legal fees. He was both flexible and creative in trying to find ways to save me costs.
I trust Tim to the point which I still reach out to him with quick legal questions, many on other topics.

I had originally hired Mr. Simonson to represent me during the hearing of an Order For Protection against my, then, husband. I quickly recognized Tim’s knowledge with the family court system and decided to stay with him to file my divorce. That was the best decision I made. My divorce took over a year with countless hearings, court appearances and other court ordered meetings. The divorce went to trial and with Tim’s efficiency, confidence and excellent communication I knew I was being well taken care of. No matter what the outcome I would have been satisfied because I knew that I was a priority to Tim and he gave me 110%, all of the time. As it ended up, the ruling was in my favor and who else do I have to give the credit to but Tim. He had to meet with a few of my closest friends that were witnesses in the hearing. Every single one of them was as impressed with him as I was with the whole experience.
After all I just shared; you can imagine the invoices I managed to accumulate. I think whenever you receive an invoice from an attorney it reads as intimidating, it did for me at least. Tim and I worked together so that we were both comfortable with the charges and payments. He was always very open and empathetic to my concerns which resulted in what I felt was an extremely fair price for the services he provided. Mr. Simonson would come highly recommended from me.

A master of inefficiency, broken promises, and sordid billing practices. Firing him was the best decision I made.
Made all the promises in the world to string me a long and increase his bill, lots of which I found out later weren't even legal.
Stay away from this guy!

Tim helped me deal with the fall out of my divorce after 20 yrs of marriage. Once he got involved, things went quickly and smoothly.
