Great Lawyer!
Arthur handled my son’s felony case and got it dismissed. He is persistent, knowledgeable and will fight for his clients. He charged one flat fee and did not ask for anymore despite the time it took to get a resolution. I would recommend him to anyone.

Great Representation
Arthur Sims helped my daughter win her case. My daughter forgot to take her prescribed medication a few times before school as directed. Someone called the high school hotline tipping them off that they saw she had the medication on her person. She was arrested at school and brought to the Galveston jail and charged with two felony counts due to not having her medication in her bottle. My husband and I were completely lost and it wasn't until we talked to Arthur and he assured us that he would do his best to get her case dismissed. It was really important to get theses charges dismissed because she wants to be in the medical field. We are all very thankful for all his help.

Mr. Sims assured me through the entire process of my case that he would do everything he could possibly do to get my case (family violence) dismissed. He answered all questions I had and was always very thorough with what was happening. At the end of this entire process my case was dismissed. I would refer anyone I know to Mr. Sims. He is one of the "good" ones at a much more reasonable price. I can't thank Mr. Sims enough.

POM Galveston
Got my POM dismissed. I have never been in trouble before. I had the marijuana on my person but he worked with the DA and the DA decided to dismiss my case. I couldn’t believe it. Thank you Mr. Sims.

Dismissed two cases one on very first setting
Mr. Sims got my marijuana case dismissed in Galveston. I actually picked up a new offense too and when he went to court on my case he was able to get that case dismissed as well. I am so thankful because he’s willing to work with you and help out. I would recommend to all me friends. Thanks Mr. Sims

DWI Dismissed
I hired Mr. Sims a year ago. I had my second DWI charge. He said from day one the officer was just trying to pull someone over. Mr. Sims kept telling me not to take anything. I was worried but left it up to him. We pushed it all the way to trial and the DA dismissed it. I am so thankful for Mr. Sims and his willingness to keep fighting. Awesome attorney and would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Deadly Conduct
I hired Mr. Sims about 5 months ago. I had a disordlery conduct display/discharge a firearm case where police responded to an alarm at my home. I had gotten up since the alarm went off and grabbed my shot gun. I waived down the police as they came up the street. The officer threw me down after ripping the gun out of my hands. He said in the report that I wasn’t following his instructions and that was why he “wrestled” the gun away from me. What actually happened was that he rolled up and drew his weapon and at that point I placed my hands in the air and then carefully laid down my gun. Over him screaming at me I was trying to explain that this was my house. Mr. Sims didn’t doubt me for a minute. He went in and fought for me and for my rights. The case was dismissed. I am so thankful for him and his patience and expertise. Awesome attorney!

Excellent Attorney!
I hired Mr. Sims for my Racing on HWY case. Although it was a rough process of a few months, he got it dismissed. That’s all I cared about and that was his goal from the start that’s why I kept him the whole way through. Couldn’t be any happier with his work and he excels in his profession!

Best Attorney
I hired Mr. Sims for my DWI in Harris County. I explained to him that given my profession I could not have a DWI on my record. He got the case dismissed. He pushed it to the point of a trial and when we walked in to court that morning he came up to me with a smile and shook my hand as he told me my case was dismissed. I hugged him I was so happy. He was awesome and professional and always returned calls within the timeframe of his contract. I would recommend him to any and everyone.

No complaints
Dealing with a person such as myself can be a DIFFICULT task so I tip my hat to this gentleman. He has traits that most attorneys do not possess such as compassion, understanding and patience. He got my case dismissed. He explained from the jump what would happen and it did. No games, NO probation, nothing he takes his cases seriously! Even though he is a busy man I was always able to get in touch with him. Thank you so much Mr. Sims I am forever in your debt :-)

Pushes For Dismissal
Mr. Sims got both my cases dismissed. He pushed hard. I was worried about setting my cases for trial. He had confidence that once the DA looked into it they would realize the cases were bad. He always was available when I needed him. I'm so happy this nightmare is done. Thank you Mr. Sims!

Respectful, kind, and professional
Mr. Sims was very helpful from the moment I contacted him for a consultation regarding my case. He explained everything to me as needed. He even helped me find an insurance company for my SR22! He was understanding of my financial situation and worked with me on payments. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case and would recommend his services to anyone.

Arthur Sims for the win!
Arthur Sims told me exactly what would happen with my case. He is fair and honest. I was scared to death about what could happen. I had a DWI 3rd and was afraid of jail or a very strict probation. My two prior DWIs were 10 years ago. He told me what I needed to hear not what I wanted to hear. After 8 months of fighting my case he got it reduced to a misdemeanor. He's the best and I appreciate everything he did for me. I am thankful for his diligence and respect and concern for me. Thank you Mr. Sims!!!
