This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
I called David for advice on a very delicate legal matter. He answered the phone on the first call. Listened to what I had to say. Gave me his interpretation of what is going on. Very straight forward guy that clearly has the legal expertise and enough experience to dissect a scenario and determine the outcome. Seems I’m lucky not to have needed his services. Intelligence and good situational awareness. I would hire him.

The best lawyer I’ve ever had
David is one of the hardest working lawyers he was on my case for 3 years and helped me get a reduced sentence. He fights hard for you, he gives some of the best advise . From the day he took my case until the end any time I called he answered. If you want the best defense attorney call David he will go above and beyond

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I sincerely believe that no client could ask for a better or more skilled advocate than David Simon. Although much of his early experience was grounded in trying tough criminal cases and appeals, he has repeatedly demonstrated that his years as a trial lawyer made him an excellent negotiator and savvy commercial litigator. I have recommended David to colleagues and friends. He has my full endorsement as a litigator and appellate attorney."
