| Hired Attorney
deliberate, knowledgeable and a great coomunicator
Attorney Simmons help me buy and sell over 75 properties during a complex time in our citiy's history. Always a cautious as approached each land acquisition and sale- Attorney Simmons acted professionally with me as his client. He knew the other lawyers we interacted with and seems to enjoy a great reputation for accuracy and honesty. He is an old school lawyer who gets it dead right the first time.
