Highly satisfying service!
Ms. Tasha Simmonds was a thorough professional. She educated me on what to expect, what the likely outcome would be and then she achieved it. I would definitely, without hesitation recommend Ms. Tasha Simmonds.

An Outstanding Family Lawyer
I interviewed 5 lawyers following being served divorce papers in 2019. I say, now with hindsight, that Tasha Simmonds was the right choice. Attorney Simmonds is an exceptional lawyer and achieved great results. She has creative ideas, is an excellent negotiator and has a comprehensive and impressive knowledge of family law. She was available around the clock and provided me with options and recommendations which were objective and effective. She always took the time to explain the law and made sure I understood the law. I would 100% recommend.

Highly Recommend
If you’re looking for a lawyer who is confident in their work, genuine, supportive, and up for challenge trust me , you’ve found her. Starting from the first day we’ve met she listened and understood everything I was going thru. From that day I knew I wanted Ms. Simmonds by my side. She didn’t just tell me what she could do for me but showed me how we’re going to get it done. And with her in your corner, settling for less is not a option. She have represented me in both my family court and in domestic violent cases. There’s nothing I could say or do to ever repay her for everything she has done for me. Attorney Tasha Simmonds changed my life...literally.

Lawyer with Principles
Attorney Simmonds represented me in my divorce proceedings with a stance of dignity and principles. Would not allow me to just say anything however encouraged me to speak clearly through my emotions and principles that governs my marriage. The results were favorable and I know I could not have picked a better lawyer to defend my position with said clarity of thought, mind and facts. Enterally grateful for your service. I wholeheartedly recommend Atty Simmonds & firm for all your legal needs.

Best Family Attorney Experience!
I had a family case where I was being countersued for child custody due to my initial request for child support. I went thru a bunch of attorneys who didn't give me a chance at all; took my son's father's side and was trying to be ideal. If you're looking for an attorney who puts in the work for you, makes sure you get your legal fees' worth, Attorney Simmonds is your girl! She was solid and direct and she is prepared for court! (My previous attorney confused the judge for an assistant) Attorney Simmonds is knowledgeable and trustworthy. Her rapport among judges is unmatched. If you're apprehensive about court, you can go with confidence if you go with Attorney Simmonds.

Divorce Case
I was represented in my divorce by Miss. Tasha Simmonds and couldn't have asked for a better attorney. She was professional, very helpful and knowledgeable in her craft. definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was taken care of.

Tasha Simmonds, Esq.
I'm a court reporter with a lot of experience seeing attorneys work. Unfortunately, I had to handle an issue of my own and had the honor of having Tasha Simmonds help me get through a very difficult hearing. First, she jumped in last minute to help me; and second, she was amazing!!! Between Ms. Simmonds experience, knowledge, and her personal touch, I wouldn't want anyone else by my side. It's hard enough to have to go through anything like this, but having an attorney that you feel is not only extremely knowledgeable AND cares about you as an individual, not just as another case, makes all the difference in the world. Ayo and Iken are very fortunate to have an attorney as competent, caring and hard working as Tasha Simmonds. Grateful to have crossed paths with her. After my experience with Ms. Simmonds, as long as she's practicing law, I wouldn't consider hiring anyone else to defend me other than her. She's the real deal!

A beast in the courtroom
My divorce came to a stall due to my financial obstacles- attorney Simmonds worked out a plan for me and represented me in victory. Even the judge commended her in front of the whole courtroom audience. She is definitely not just any lawyer but one that will fight for you.

Professional, quick and friendly.
Tasha is amazing to work with. She feels you in on everything she’s doing along the way. So friendly when it comes to answering questions and is extremely thorough. I don’t know what I would’ve done without her.

Thank you for the review! I still remember your case. You were wise to reach out for help to keep it from falling through the cracks...who knows how long it would have taken to do what we did together in just 7 days! I hope you have been doing well. - ts

Quality and Affordable
I retained Ms. Simmonds for a Custody dispute that has been on going since before our child was born. The mother of my child refused to allow me to be a part of the child's life in any way because of her own personal vindictiveness. I retained three lawyers prior to Ms. Simmonds who could not get the judgement that was fair to our child. Ms. Simmonds was able to address my concerns, reunify me with my child, and protect me and our child from future alienation attempts by the mother. There are very few lawyers in Broward County and Miami-Dade County who can not only sympathize but also have enough patience and understanding to help a grieving parent understand their rights. From my observations Ms. Simmonds also has a great understanding of the presiding judges. She is intellectual and sharp at the same time. Lastly, she is extremely responsive to my calls, questions, and inquiries about the case. If you want the job done right I recommend that you consult with Ms. Simmonds.

Awesome Representation
Hired Ms Simmonds to represent our company on a civil matter that was being looked at in a criminal light. She spoke with detectives and represented us well at a questioning. In and out in 5 mins with the end result being confirmed as a civil matter. We were extremely happy with how the case was handled and would highly recommend her firm. Fair cost, excellent representation.

Dependancy Case Representation
Tasha Simmonds was one of many lawyers my husband and I interviewed while attempting to find a lawyer for a complicated dependency case we needed representation for. Immediately in speaking to her we felt extremely comfortable vs. being pushed by other lawyers or being told that this case would take several months to resolve. She was not only well versed in what options we had as clients but also very responsive throughout the process and got the case resolved in a very speedy time frame (less than 60 days). I would use Ms. Simmonds again in the future if needed with no hesitation. She did a fantastic job!

From out of state
We contacted Tasha to come up with a last will and testament. Although we lived out of state, Tasha was able to work with us via video chat, collect all of our information, and create a will for us. She also gave us instructions on getting witness signatures and all of the necessary follow-up for where we live. We were greatly pleased with the document when it was finished, and she also offered to update the document whenever we had more children, assets, etc. Honestly, for our first time working with a lawyer, she made the experience very pleasant.

Flexible and Attentive
Tasha has saved me from signing bad contracts and made me comfortable signing good ones. The biggest plus for me is her block rates. She gives me plenty of room to ask all the questions I have, voice my concerns, and have confidence that the proper revisions will be made. This is vital when looking at entertainment contracts that could make or break 1-2 years of my life.

TS
I retained Tasha Simmonds on short notice which was very helpful. She was able to assist me with filling out and filing the appropriate documents, as well as explain them to me and guide me through the court proceedings. She also communicated with me via text and email, as well as phone, which was very beneficial to me throughout certain parts of the day. With that, I also found that there was a breakdown in communication at some times. For instance, I had scheduled a meeting with her to sign some documents, and she was 1 hour late. I did not receive any communication from her saying that she would be. Another issue I had was that prior to my first court hearing, I mentioned to her my concern of who would be allowed in the courtroom during the hearing, as I did not want any unnecessary observers to be there since this was a very private and personal matter. During my second hearing, I noticed that there were observers in the courtroom, some who were known to her. I think that she should have asked the judge to have them removed from the courtroom during my proceedings, having known how I felt about it, or at least cleared it with me first.

Response from Tasha Simmonds April 11, 2017
Dear anonymous: Thank you for the overall rating of "I recommend Tasha Simmonds". However, we are surprised at your presentation of your experience with Simmonds Legal. First of all, your description of our services seem to indicate a document preparation/assistance engagement, when you were, in fact, represented by an attorney who prepared for and went to trial for you. The end result was that you received more than what you initially asked of the Court. While we apologize for the delay in your meeting, please remember that meeting was scheduled by e-mail very late the night before and Attorney Simmonds' assistant did, in fact, reach out to you to ensure you knew that she was en route. Finally, it was explained to you earlier on that your type of proceeding did not fall under the "confidential" classification that other types of hearings do. Attorney Simmonds attends court often and often sees familiar faces. We understand no one wants their private matters surveyed by the public, but Florida law gives members of the public the right to do so. You were forewarned that Attorney Simmonds had no control over this. So we are sad to see that you indicted her on this point, anyway. You made an assumption, and your assumption is incorrect. Please know, however, that had Attorney Simmonds wanted to go against your wishes and invite observers to the hearing, she definitely would have attempted to clear it with you first. While we thank you for taking the time out for leaving an honest review, we really wish that you would have brought these concerns to us beforehand. But, thank you for being a great client! Respectfully, Management

TERRIBLE LAWYER
This woman is a terrible lawyer I acquired her through Marble Law and she constantly had me confused with other people she worked for. Then would she would realize she had the wrong person she would literally tell me oh I was just about to call you that was of course a lie. I would not recommend this lawyer to anyone. When I was preparing for a hearing with her to build a defense for a child custody/ childsupport case this woman had the biggest attitude when I would try to explain myself to her in regards to what I wanted. As if she was paying me I would once again not recommend this lady. To add insult to injury she would never pick up the phone when I called she wouldn't call me back ever within a timely manner. For example she was suppose to send an email that I needed to fill out as a response to the court on that Friday she said she would send it on her way out the office this women never sent the email and i was suppose to be that Monday. I was sweating bullets waiting on this email I called a text I prayed she never responded until that Sunday. But only to tell me she's at church right now and she's going to call once she gets out. I didn't hear from here until almost night time. Then when I she finally sent the email this lady tells me oh you don't actually need to fill it out anyway. Keep in mind this is after waiting all day Friday and all day Saturday and most of that Sunday. We then have a conversation the following week when she calls to get some information from me and we end up having a sparing match by words over my physical address that the court didn't even request they only had requested the mailing which she already had along with the courts. I couldn't believe the nerve the lawyer I am paying for arguing with me over information that the court isn't even requesting and then she uses this information in the future to get me dropped from Marble Law all together. It went like this she called me late that day after 5pm with the phone on speaker as if she was laying back relaxing and wanting just to rush the conversation as if I was her last stop of the day. I took a lot of offense to that conversation and decided based on the wrong names I was constantly getting called because of her mix ups and lack of following up and showing any concern about my case, I decided to just drop her all together. So I then call Marble they explain the process says it will be no problem asked my what was wrong and I explained to them everything that I had written here. So within less than three days I was switched to another attorney out of Ocala named Brian Laird. Well I received an initial call from this gentleman to introduce himself and he just gave me the run down about what was our next steps and he explained that he would be following up with me. Fast forward a few days go by and I haven't heard back from Brian when I call him he tells me that I had been dropped by Marble law and he didn't know why. So I then proceed to call Marble when I do this they inform me that I was dropped because Tasha Simmonds had said that I had with held information keep in mind this hearing is about my eight year old son. Just to show you how sinister this woman is. The information that she said that I with held was my address which I showed them in an email from her that she already had the mailing as well as the courts but she had got an attitude about the physical for what ever reason when even she stated the courts aren't asking for a physical just a mailing which everyone already had. This woman had made it seemed to Marble as if i had with held information that the courts needed and I then proceeded to send the email proving my point as to how she was a manipulator and liar. I then was called by a woman from Marble named Athena who fought for me and took those emails to her higher ups and I was rewarded a full refund. Needless to say I am letting everyone that I know, know about this woman and her diabolic practices and erratic behavior.

Disrespectful , over priced , and not helpful
I hired Ms Simmons to help with a child custody case & can say I would definitely not recommend her services. Not only was nothing accomplished, she kept me on the phone and used other forms of communication to run her bill up. Her advice was not helpful, she was not thorough, and then sends me an outrageous bill. There are much better attorneys out there with much better attitudes & approaches towards service.

Response from Tasha Simmonds March 3, 2021
Dear Poster: On our telephone conversation (which took place right before you posted this), you stated you did not feel you had to pay me the hourly rate you agreed to because I was employed by a firm that gave me a paycheck. I regret that we could not agree on that point. I enjoyed representing you in the past when I obtained an order for your child's mother to pay you child support and I enjoyed getting her recent relocation case against you dismissed. I regret that you do not feel I am worth the result I obtained for you but I do not regret working with you. Be blessed.
