Excellent Choice
I consulted with and hired Fletcher and Simmons in a dog bite case. It was a difficult situation, but if you are looking for a Christian firm with integrity, this is it. Rebecca Todd handled my case with skill and compassion. She was always clear in her communication; she was responsive and kept me updated regularly. It was a pleasure to work with her. This is a quality firm with quality attorneys.

Thank you for your excellent representation of my wife and I, Rebecca Todd.
I suffered a leg injury in February of 2019 that hospitalized me and had me on crutches for the better part of a year. I felt that the owner of the premises where I was injured created a dangerous condition. As a 34 year litigating attorney, I thought about handling my loss of earnings, pain, suffering, and medical bills by myself. Then I remembered the old saying that an attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client. So without a moment's hesitation, my wife and I reached out to Rebecca Todd and Simmons and Fletcher to represent us. It was the best decision we ever made. They jumped right on our case and sent investigators out very quickly. They ordered my medical bills very promptly. They effectively and compassionately interviewed my wife and me in order to fully understand the impact that this injury had on our lives. They negotiated skillfully with the defendant's insurance adjusters. Because of the diligence and expertise of Rebecca Todd and Simmons and Fletcher, our legal matter was concluded without the necessity for litigation with a result that my wife and I were very pleased with. Throughout the representation, we were very impressed with their regular communication letting us know where things stood. In the end, if my wife and I could give Rebecca Todd and Simmons and Fletcher a 100-star rating, we would. I am very glad and grateful we entrusted our personal injury matter to Rebecca Todd and Simmons and Fletcher. They took care of us with expertise, compassion, and dedication, making sure that we were very fairly and promptly compensated for my injuries and our damages. Thank you, Rebecca, and thank you Simmons and Fletcher. You made a big difference in our lives.

Super Helpful and Easy to Work With
I was in an automobile accident in which I was hit from behind. I called the liable party’s insurance company to start my claim immediately, but knew based on the initial contact with them that they did not have my best interest in mind. I contacted Simmons and Fletcher where Rebecca Todd immediately began working on my case. She arranged billing agreements with medical providers which allowed me to be treated immediately and consistently without having to come out of pocket while waiting for the insurance company to pay out. The whole process seemed very daunting at first, but Rebecca explained everything that was going on in a way that was easy to understand. Furthermore, she assisted in getting the diminished value of my car reimbursed to me, which is something I had no idea about prior to her help. I would recommend hiring Rebecca to anyone who is dealing with a personal injury dispute. She truly has her client’s best interest in mind and works tirelessly to make sure they have the best outcome when resolving a case.

Rebecca Todd did a great job
I was in an automobile accident and wasn't at fault. So after a month of getting the run around from the other guys insurance I contacted Simmons and Fletcher. Rebecca Todd was very thorough in instructing us in what to do and how to do it. She was always there to answer any questions or concerns that we had. In the end she got us a fair settlement. Thank you Rebecca.
