Having worked closely with Mr. Simmons over the course of two years, I can confirm firsthand that his reputation as one of the finest young trial lawyers in Texas is well-deserved. Mr. Simmons had the rare opportunity to try a variety of lawsuits, some involving $50+ million in alleged damages. Time after time, opposing counsel, the judiciary, and most importantly-- his clients -- were blown away at how well-developed his legal prowess had become in only a handful of years. If your business needs aggressive, calculated representation of the sharpest kind, Mr. Simmons can most certainly tackle your issues with ease.
