    I endorse this lawyer. Simon is what my generation used to refer to as an "up and comer". His poise, demeanor and courtroom presence belie his brief tenure as an attorney. Simon is sharp, responsible, careful and caring. His rapport with his clients, judicial officers and opposing counsel is excellent. Simon is a quick-study and offers youthful, vigorous responsiveness to his grateful clients. I look forward to working with Simon as his skills, knowledge and caliber of advocacy continue to improve as this bright, young attorney takes his place among the elites of tomorrow.

  • Karim Shawn Manji

    Mr. Budhwani is a people's attorney, putting his clients interest and peace of mind ahead of all else. Mr. Budhwani has developed strong and professional relationships with DAs and Judges in Southern California, and has a strong success rate in defending criminal charges. I recommend Mr. Budhwani for anyone who has a bad taste in their mouth from their prior attorney, and need a fresh look at how today's attorneys practice law.
