Practice area

Since graduating from law school in 1997, Mr. Simon has dedicated himself to representing plaintiffs in employment-related matters, and has developed an expertise in many aspects of employment law. He is Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  Much of Mr. Simon's success stems results from personal attention to each of his clients and the tenacity to see each case to its best possible conclusion.

Mr. Simon was born in Washington D.C. in 1969 and grew up in the New York and the D.C. areas. Mr. Simon received a B.A. from St. John's College in 1992 and his law degree from the New York University School of Law in 1997.

In 2007, Mr. Simon moved to Austin, Texas, and is now a partner in the law firm of Terry, Simon & Kelly, P.L.L.C.  His practice has spanned the full spectrum of employment law, from race, sex, age, national origin and disability discrimination cases, to sexual harassment whistleblower, Family and Medical Leave, and minimum wage and overtime cases. Mr. Simon has served as class counsel in several complex, long running class actions brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and collective actions brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Loss wages recovery specialist and litigation expert
Kell Simon is lawyer who is an expert in employment law and experienced in recovering lost wages including overtime pay, bonus money promised, and expenses owed from employers. He listens to you, explains your options in every day language, stays in contact through out the entire process and doesn't move until you say what you want -- your in control. He helped me convenience my former employer they couldn't do or say what they wanted. That there are rules they have to follow. He recovered what I was owed plus his fees. I would recommend and would use him again.

Very Good Employment Lawyer
I was let go from a company after devoting 17 years of my life to building their business to the heights it currently enjoys because of medical issues. I felt it was unfair. I met with Kell and he agreed and we went after the company for wrongful behavior. Kell was with me through the entire process which at times can feel very intimidating. We received a favorable outcome.

Very responsive on short notice
I needed to consult with someone on very short notice (read: hours) to discuss my employment agreement in order to make a decision on taking a new job. Kell responded to my inquiry almost immediately and was available for phone consult a few hours later and the next day as well. He was instrumental in the decision I made and I would recommend him to anyone else looking for employment law consult.

A Good Man
Kell is not only a good lawyer, but a good human being. He heard my case out over several hours, filed an EEOC complaint, and gave me an honest opinion of what he thought my chances of success would be if we went to court. I ended up deciding not to go to court, but I believe this was the right choice, which I wouldn't have been able to make without Mr. Simon's sympathetic, thorough, and honest advice.

Discrimination Case
Kell Simon is one of those lawyers who combines compassion for clients with unyielding advocacy for their case. Kell became my lawyer after months of being in the legal hands of another who had completely mishandled the rights and concerns of my case. I couldn't have gotten through the employment discrimination case without having hired Kell Simon. From the first contact to the settlement hearing , he methodical, informed, patient and diligent in my case. I am so truly thankful for all of his efforts in treating me with respect and care through an enormously traumatic time. I was always kept updated and all aspects and strategies were explained, discussed and examined for success and comfort. I couldn't say enough as to my strong recommendation. A practitioner such as this you’ll want to have.This is one who provides continuity and stands by you in each of your darkest hour no matter what the opposing side says or fabricates. Facts are facts ,and they do surface just as Kell assured. Alternatively if you’re thinking about hiding the facts no matter how slick or well connected you think your legal representative is you’d better hope your opposition doesn’t have Kell Simon because he’s in it for the long haul.

Positive Outcome
I contacted Kell to help me with a wrongful termination lawsuit. The case was somewhat complicated and the other side was not that easy to deal with. Kell was always professional in his contact with me and in digging for the facts. We were able to move my case to mediation and settle it in a satisfactory way. I appreciated his hard work, dedication and desire to see a positive outcome for me.
