About Edwin

Learn Edwin’s areas of practice.

Edwin’s passion for the law began as he worked at the Superior Court and observed countless people unable to effectively fight for their rights, lost in a complicated and intimidating justice system. He had the fortune of working directly in the courtroom as a Court Attendant and Court Clerk, observing over numerous trials under several judges.

Edwin has a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice, graduating summa cum laude from Arizona State University. He enrolled as a part-time evening student with the Western State College of Law, where he was accepted with a full scholarship. Throughout law school, Edwin worked as a certified law clerk during the day, attending classes in the evening and maintaining the number-one rank in his class. He also served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Western State Law Review, a member of the Deans’ Circle and Distinguished Honor Roll, and has earned a Certificate of Distinguished Public Service through his dedication to giving back to the community. Edwin was also invited to the Honors Moot Court Team and was selected to be a Deans’ Fellow, where he served as a mentor to incoming 1L students during their first year. He then graduated summa cum laude, the valedictorian of his graduating class, and went on to pass the bar exam and join the firm as an attorney.

Person
Edwin is knowledgeable and patient. I was looking for some general advice and already overwhelmed with what legal actions I’d have to take. He’s someone that will listen, give you advice in laymen’s terms, and treat you like a human being and not just some other number in a slew of cases.

Professional, caring, effective
I reached to Edwin with questions about an accident I was in and he helped answer my questions and let me know what my options were. He was so helpful and knowledgeable and helped me feel so much better about what I could do.

Best lawyer around
Edwin took care of me with the utmost professionalism. You hear about lawyers being awful to deal with but not this one. He was able to point me in the right direction and get me the help that I needed. He took the time to actually listen and understand me and for that I'll be forever thankful. If you're needing a personal injury lawyer that not only knows LAW but also knows how to be a human being, look no further cause Edwin took great care of me and i would recommend him to ANYONE.

Excellent Customer Service
I just wanted to say Edwin's customer service to me was awesome! I just had a few quick questions for him to answer and he provided me the responses very quickly - unlike anything that I've seen before in my experience with the legal system. I highly recommend Edwin to anyone if you're looking for great service and some personality that goes along with it!

Edwin changed my life!
I was in a passenger in a terrible car accident in 2019, where I was rearended while stopped in traffic on the freeway. I was left with horrendous injuries that required multiple surgeries. I was left horribly scared and suffered from PTSD from the accident. As a full-time student and preschool teacher I thought I would not be able to continue to do what I love. I thought my life was over. Edwin was there every step of the way. Through my hospital stays and my recovery Edwin and his associates made sure that I was taken care of. I had Covid in the midst of this process and Edwin would even check on me to make sure I didn't need anything. He is absolutely the best. Edwin and his team fought a very greedy insurance company that were determined to leave me broken and uncompensated for everything I had gone through. He fought hard to make sure that I was well compensated and while my life will never be the same, I no longer have to worry financial aspects of my life that once kept me awake after my accident. There are a lot of lawyers out there that will make promises that seem amazing. Do not fall for the hype. Don't choose your lawyer through their silly commercials and billboards because when push comes to shove they will not come through for you. If you are ever in the same position I found myself in, trust Edwin Hong. He is understanding, so knowledgeable, and he will fight harder than anyone for you, while giving you the support and attention that you need during such a stressful process. I continue to be a preschool teacher (which is what I love) and I just completed my first year of my Master's program in School Psychology. None of that would have been possible without Edwin Hong

Incredible service!
I was nervous to get in touch with a lawyer at all because of the horror stories about what it's like dealing with them. That was not the case with Edwin. He was unbelievably helpful, kind, and compassionate. He consulted with me on my back injury and was able to explain my options based on my situation that really kept me from feeling hopeless. I'm glad I reached out. His response time was quick and you can tell he cares. Thank you Edwin.

Very Helpful
I don't have a whole lot of experience with lawyers but from what I had heard they weren't pleasant to deal with. However, Mr. Hong consistently checked in and let me know what was going on/needed to happen as simply and honestly as he could. And I was appreciative of that. Not to mention, he was accessible and open to any last minute questions I had. Whether it be via a zoom call, regular phone call, email or quick text message. Definitely grateful for everything.

Knows every trick of the trade!
I consulted with Edwin after I slipped and fell and took a lot of damage to my head. With Edwin’s help, I was able to find the key resources I needed to get long-term help in a within a short timeframe! Ultimately we determined that I did not have much of a case, but I am grateful for his help in jumpstarting my health back to normal by sticking me in the right direction. Thank you, Edwin!

Amazing support when I needed it most
Edwin was on my legal team at Simon Law group for a personal injury case. I was in a serious car accident that resulted in a drastic change to my life including severe pelvic and low back injuries requiring emergency surgery and over 10 metal implants. That trauma alone made the situation challenging, but I knew I needed support and protection when the driver that hit me refused to make insurance and other payments. Edwin and the Simon Law team that helped me through the process got the case to a great resolution with a settlement outside of court. Edwin specifically was a great resource and kind and understanding throughout. I highly recommend Simon Law Group and would also work with Edwin again, but I hope I never have to!

Really great communication
Edwin responded to my calls/texts promptly for my car accident, evne when I thought the question might have been dumb. He kept in contact throughout the case, and I am very happy with how things ended. I already recommend him to my friends and family.

Edwin was professional and helpful in every single aspect from start to finish. I can’t emphasize enough the communication aspect and how grateful we are that there was never a moment we were left wondering or clueless. He took care of us, fought for us and ensured we were compensated the highest amount possible. We’re grateful for him and the legal time for helping us settle out case and finally giving us the peace of mind to move on with our lives. Thank you for everything you do and all the people you help serve justice for.

Great job!!
When Edwin and his office was assigned my case, it actually started to move and make progress after 2 years with another office. He was always updating me throughout the case and explaining details as needed. I am happy with the results of the case and felt things went smooth and handled efficiently. I would recommend Edwin to my friends and family. Thank you again!

Real life super hero.
My father was hit by a truck that left him with a TBI. It was a horrible experience for my father and our family until we met with Edwin and the firm he is with. Immediately, Edwin got him to see specialists who diagnosed him and treated him. Edwin made sure he had all the assistance he needed including transportation. It was a big relief to have them be so confident and trustworthy. One of the things that I really admired about Edwin and his firm was the patience they had with my father. When it came to dealing with the court, they were highly experienced. I highly recommend them to everyone. They will work close with you and communicate everything with you in an excellent manner. Thank you Edwin and the Simon Law group! Sincerely!

Amazing Lawyer!
I was injured in a shuttle accident in 2018. I found Edwin and his team, through another lawyer. His team and him, worked very hard, kept me up to date with everything that went on. They listened to me on everything I said and always stuck with me. I was never in the dark. Him and his team are very professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. We just finished in under two years. I would recommend them to anyone, and know that they would be in good hands! Very professional law firm, and Edwin makes you feel so comfortable and knowing that you will be in good hands with him. I cant thank them enough for everything that they have done for me.

Very Good Lawyer
In 2017 I got hit by a car and after a few weeks started to look for an attorney to represent me. I read a lot of reviews and selected one which handled the first part of my case. He, later on, passed the case to Edwin to continue. I am happy with both Lawyers and Edwin successfully completed my case last month. It was easy to get hold of him and responded to emails and messages quickly. I like him and do not hesitate to do business with him.

Straight-froward and earnest!
A few years ago, I was unfortunate enough to have been in a motorcycle accident on the 405 when a car crossed quad-solid yellow lanes into the carpool and struck me. Two things came to mind....my motorcycle condition and all the headache that was going to be dealt with that goes along with an accident like this. One would think insurance would handle it all, but long story short, I had to file a case as the motorist was uninsured. This is when I met Edwin. He was unbelievably transparent with me and told me exactly what to expect. He kept tabs on everything and kept me in the loop with the entire process and in the end, we were able to settle and I got want I was entitled to, all thanks to Edwin. Needless to say, if you want a non-nonsense lawyer who is super responsive, Edwin is your guy. I was extremely satisfied by how he handled my situation. Thanks a million Edwin!
