We hired Mr. Simmons for a civil lawsuit. When we started the suit we were not sure as to how intricate the case would evolve as both his clients were 85 & 83 at that time. However, Mr. Simmons took the time to elucidate the broad spectrum of what will be involved. He was patient and explained the legal process in a modest manner so as my aunts would understand and comprehend. Throughout the legal proceedings, he attributed the same demeanor as he did from the first day we met. He was very meticulous and we were captivated in how he won every motion. His cross examination of witnesses were just engulfing. Subsequently, he was proficient to win the case. The joyous smile on my aunts’ face was invaluable.
We would unquestionably recommend his services. He is incredibly experienced in a wide range of legal matters.
Thank you for all you have done for us.

Mr. Simmons is one of the BEST attorneys I know. I have personally used his services with a dispute with a contractor and have recommended him to many friends who are in need of a savvy attorney from litigation to divorce. If you are looking for an attorney that is trustworthy, honest, creative and you need results, look no further, Mr. Simmons is your attorney!

During the ten or more years I have known Mr. Simmons, I have learned the following -- his considerable skill at courtroom advocacy and legal analysis is only outpaced by his ability to quickly grasp the nuances of the motivations of multiple parties, and effectively negotiate the optimal outcome for his client. His combination of intellect, assertiveness, and passion for his clients’ needs make him the lawyer I would rely on for complex litigation.
