Amazing
I Will say this. This attorney is very professional and knowledgeable in his work. I won’t go into detail of the case however I will explain in short how Mr.Simmons handled the case. First I want to state that I could not afford to hire him. He worked with me and accepted payments…being low income this really helped me out and I’ve since payed about half of the agreed upon amount; the case(s) are already over with. I will make sure he gets every last penny he earned. I digress, anywho, I hired him for two separate charges…both being the same. And my bond got revoked. Regardless I boned out again, before the week was finished my case was over with. I sighed. Before I hired Mr.Simmons I was fighting the case to no avail with the court appointed attorney and I was basically being rest for about a year and a half….thats when I caught the second charge. Again….I layered up, and he got one of the charges dropped. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney. 10/10 stars if I was able to give them.

Dan Simons Review
I contacted Dan Simons when I got a DWI. When I called him, he was on top of my case the same day. He is an attorney that you can contact directly and was very clear regarding my case. He was with me throughout the whole process even when I went to court and had my case dismissed.

BEST Lawyer out there!
Most people will tell you everything you want to hear just to get your business, but Dan Simons is a man of his word and did everything he said he would! If you’re looking for results and efficiency, I would advise looking no further. He does not settle and refuses to take no for an answer. He will fight for you and keep you out of court which takes a huge load off! Aside from that, he is very friendly and cares about each individual case, treating you as if you were his very own family. I called Dan on a weekend, and at a weird time of the day thinking I could probably just leave a voicemail that he’d eventually get to, however he took my call right then and talked me through it all and encouraged me to relax because he was gonna take care of everything, and boy did he ever! I cannot think of a single complaint from the time I called him to the time my case was completely dismissed! Love this guy, would highly recommend!

Dan's a great lawyer!
Dan was very clear from the start about my case and I could tell he had plenty of experience handling DWI's. He got me a solution to my problem and I followed what he advised, and I got the best possible outcome. His experience and knowledge reflects well. He was on top of things from the jump so there was no delay on his end. Dan is a solid lawyer that I do recommend to anyone in need of legal assistance.

When I thought I was going to jail then BOOM case dismissed
Dan is literally the best lawyer I have every had, no other lawyer has ever kept me so calm during my court dates. I told him I didn’t want probation nor go to jail and boom just did a class real quick and my case was dismissed. This is the type of lawyers you want to keep on speed dial when things get tough with the guys in BLUE. I would recommend him to anyone, thanks DAN for saving my butt lol.

Knowledge and efficiency
No one wants to be in a DWI situation but I’m glad I hired Dan Simons. He was straight forward, knowledgeable, and always a text away for any answers. He was clear in expectations regarding what could be done for me and always fought for the best option. Quick and easy.

Poised
Dan Simonds is literally fantastic. I was charged with a DUI last year in late August, and gave Dan a call. After just a few questions, he informed me he could get it dismissed, no doubt. That made me feel better but I was still worried about what might happen. BUT, as of September this year, my case has been dismissed... I don't know why I worried at all, I mean he explained the steps to getting it dismissed, and always kept me in the loop about what was going on currently, or what was coming next. Out of all the times I reached out to him with questions or responses, there was not one time that I didn't get a response from Dan within a few minutes. I mean he really did deliver to me, as one of his clients. Going through the months, he would encourage me to keep going and I was almost there, any late payments were NOT met with anger, he was so logical and reasonable about finances, and at the end of the day, Dan said he would get it dismissed from day one, and that's simply just what he did. I am so relieved I found his representation, and would send anyone who needed his help his way.

Really helpful
He helped with my case, very good, honestly was really down in time with making choices and had priorities all wrong but thanks to him and helping me with a lower sentence and my license. Really glad I chose him and I also recommend him to my brother. And will keep on recommending him to any other people.

FELONY AGG
I hired Mr. Dan for my DUI case, not knowing i was going to later be charged with another FELONY AGG case. He picked up the FELONY case for me with no hesitation and continued to work with me within my budget. He kept me informed and he always made himself available to talk if had any questions or concerns. I was allowed to have a peace of mind throught the entire process. He has been a BLESSING to me and my family. Hands down THE BEST LAWYER in TEXAS !!! Mr. Dan is definitly a man who lives by his word. He said he would, & he did.!!! Mr. Dan got my FELONY case DISMISSED!!
