Christopher Matthew Simon

also known as Christopher Simon, Attorney at Law

About me

The Simon Law Firm has lawyers with a combined 35 years of experience in working only on injury and wrongful death cases. Both of the lawyers began their careers as insurance company lawyers but now only represent victims and their families.

Mr. Simon practices exclusively in the area of Georgia personal
injury law. He represents the victims of serious accidents throughout
the State of Georgia. Mr. Simon graduated from the University of
Virginia in 1993 and obtained his Juris Doctorate from Mercer University
in 1997. He spent 9 years defending insurance companies while working
for a variety of insurance defense firms and as in-house counsel for
Liberty Mutual Insurance. He left the world of insurance defense several
years ago and now represents Georgians against major insurance

Mr. Simon has an intimate working knowledge of
the strategies and tactics that will maximize his client’s ability to
obtain just compensation for the harm done to them. In addition to being
an accomplished trial lawyer, Chris is also a registered Atlanta
. He was recognized for his hard work by his peers when
they voted him into Georgia Trend Magazine's "Legal
" list in 2009 and he was selected as a Rising Star by Super
Lawyers Magazine for 2009 and 2010. In January 2010, his most recent
book, The Georgia Guide
to Buying Car Insurance and Handling Car Accident Claims
published and is available on
