Professional, Helpful, and Perfect Choice
Kelley was the perfect choice in an unexpected moment of need. She was compassionate to our circumstance and passionate in ensuring we had a fair settlement. She was always professional, but also willing to listen and understand all sides to the story. Kelley was right beside us to prepare us for each step, and support us through unpleasant things like the discovery process, and arbitration meetings. She always seemed to find time to just hear me "vent" or respond to what might have seemed "dumb" questions to someone with more experience. She understood that for us, our case was much more a matter of principle than monetary gain and represented us accordingly. I would recommend her a thousand times over.

Legal Advice
Kelley has provided me outstanding legal advice on multiple occasions. While I have never hired her for an actual case, I know several people who have and all feel that she puts her best foot forward on a daily basis and works as hard as possible to resolve cases in her clients' favor.

I would NEVER recommend Kelley Brooks Simoneaux
I would never recommend Kelley or anyone else from David Shaffer Law, PLLC. If I could give zero or negative stars I would.
