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.
