A True Go Getter...
After being referred to Erica and her team she encouraged me from the beginning that it would take time to work through the whole ordeal. They were very confident and professional that they not only could win my case but that they would win it for me, and they took the time to show that they care. Considering the circumstance of my case, Ms. Slater and her team got me more than I could have imagined and I am truly grateful for all they did for me. Samuel Ludwig

Relax and Trust the Process!!
Erica and the entire Simon team were professional and transparent from our first consultation meeting until our final settlement meeting! My family and I met Erica during a very emotional and stressful time. What I appreciated the most was the patience and the authentic communication that the Erica provided for my family and I. We very skeptical about selecting the right firm/lawyer that would properly represent our case. I am a high school Principal, so you can image the research I conducted! Erica was honest, trustworthy and very transparent with us during the entire process. I highly recommend the Erica and the Simon Law firm-start with a consultation and go from there. My family and I are relieved that justice was served and our loved one is able to get the proper care deserved! Relax and trust the process- you will not be disappointed.

Extremely satisfied
Erica came to the rescue of my wife and I when we were experiencing a very difficult time. She was kind, understanding and generous with her time but most importantly she was successful at getting us a favourable outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending Erica as a lawyer to anyone who needs her expertise.

Relentless Pursuit with a smile
Erica Blume was the face and first contact with my entire experience with Simon Law. Involved. Knowledgable. Unquestionable integrity. Driven by a single minded purpose. Care of their clients. Highly recommended, with Zero doubts. Thank you Erica and your team for everything.

Manager/owner
Ms Blume was attentive to me and the details of my case. She came in at a tough juncture. Ms Blume took case over from another attorney. She was prepared for case and at every turn. Most important was that she was honest with me and my case. She knew the details of my case Better than myself. This professionalism is what is lacking in this industry. I would not hesitate to use her again and would have no problem referring her services to others.
