Mr. Budhwani did a fantastic job when i hired him for my DUI case. He handled things extremely efficiently and professionally. He was always on time and kept me well informed. We obtained a reduction of the original charges. I would recommend him to any and all who might need a great dui lawyer in the future.

So I got a DUI driving back to OC from Vegas. My case was at the Victorville court house. I researched a bunch of different attorneys out there but was not impressed. I also met with some in OC where I live who simply did not want to take a case all the way out in Victorville. Simon was the only one who seemed up to the challenge. He warned me that he had never handled a DUI up there before but if I was willing to believe in him he would do his best for me. I hired him. We went to 3 pre-trials and even though Simon was out of his comfort zone that did not stop him from getting my case reduced. By the third pretrial he had gotten the DA on his side and you could tell she had changed her attitude about the case. When I asked him how he pulled it off he just said he remained kind but persistent. He also told me that I was owed credit myself since I had listened to him and attended 20 AA classes over the last few months, which he was able to show to the DA and Judge. I highly recommend Simon for DUI cases.

Unfortunately, Simon and Marissa weren't the first attorneys that I hired to settle my divorce. I came to them after finding out that, unbeknownst to me, my first attorney had ceased to communicate with the other party's attorney and, subsequently, with me. What a contrast! From our very first meeting, Simon and Marissa made it clear that they were working on my behalf and that they would maintain regular communication with everyone concerned, especially me. I even had Simon's cell phone number. His glowing online reviews hadn't prepared me to the exceedingly positive impression with which I left his office that afternoon. After getting the file from my old lawyer, cleaning it up, and drafting all the documents that I was supposed to have after more than a year with my previous attorney--Simon then proceeded to contact my ex-wife's attorney, and from then on made sure that the case progressed as it should have. In-between, Simon was exceedingly perceptive and effective in helping me spend vacation time with my son as well as figure out compensation arrangements that were both fair and that allowed me to retain a valuable negotiating future position. A year-and-a-month later, I had my divorce agreement signed that is fair and sensitive to my particular needs.

Lets just say that I made a very stupid mistake earlier this week that ended me spending a night in jail. My divorce attorney gave me Simon's cell number. I called on a weekend and he personally picked up the phone. Invited me to his office though it was closed and spent hours with me talking about my criminal case. I wish I had this guy for my divorce as well though my current attorney is also good. He was so thorough and dissected every aspect of my case. His quote was not the cheapest but no other attorney I met with even came close to breaking down the case as good as he did. Will updated as case goes further.

The following is my experience of Simon Budhwani after hiring him for a custody matter. He was an outstanding lawyer with solid knowledge of the law and the emotional intelligence necessary to be compassionate and keep me calm through the process. Dealing with my ex and his crazy stances would make anyone's blood boil. Simon stayed professional throughout. He was a ray of sunlight in helping me with my kids custody situation. He listened. He communicated clearly. He stood firm with the other attorney when they were not being fair. He was very involved in the case. I felt lucky to have him and will not hesitate to pass on his name to friends and family.

I liked that Simon made my criminal case easier than I thought! From the time I signed that contract until the court hearing I was worrying and thinking about what I can do next or how the case was going. I've never had to go to court for a trial before so I didn't know what to expect and how the process worked. Simon and his assistant explained and kept me updated. Whenever there was a status change to my case or there was new information I needed to know, I would get a email telling me what was going on and what to expect next. This was very important to me so I really liked that. I'm the type of person that likes knowing exactly what is going on and as a result I called his office, probably a bit too much, to ask questions. If Simon was not there one of the other attorneys or his assistant had an answer for me. I strongly recommend hiring him. He is busy so you may not get a call back personally right away (hard for me to handle) but someone else will call you back and if needed he would follow up. I get that.

Mr. Budhwani did a good job helping me with my child custody case. I interviewed three different attorneys and picked him. He was the only one out of the three that met with me personally. The other two from this website I never met. They had me meet with a lower attorney. I also liked the fact that Mr. Budhwani gave me his cell phone number and told me to text him if I had questions. Told me if i called his cell there was little chance I would get a call back but if I texted he would do his best to respond. True to his word he did reply when I had questions.

Quite frankly, I hope I never have to acquire his services again for my traffic case, but on the off chance I find myself in this unfortunate bind again, I won't hesitate to go with Simon and Core Law Group.

Mr. Budhwani represented me after my first attorney lost my DMV case and my license got suspended. I found a blog he wrote about hardship exceptions and called him. He explained to me that in specific cases a person can get a hardship exception to his license suspension from the DMV. He told me it was very difficult to do and that he would have to analyze my facts before even taking my case because he did not want me to waste money. We spent an hour on the phone, he asked me to forward documentation to support my case, and a week later his assistant Matt called me and said Simon thought I had a chance to win. We appealed and requested a hardship exception and won. He is an outstanding attorney. He was up front with me concerning costs and outcomes and did not want me to waste my money. I appreciated that.

I feel confident in court when Simon is by my side. He exudes confidence. My divorce has been going on for a few years now and we are just about to start the trial. I am fully confident because thus far he has come through on everything he has promised. He is good at what he does, and you can tell he's a people person by the way he just goes the extra mile. Plus, he has always been warm and generous with his assistance - more like a friend who happens to practice law. Simon actually talks with you and tries to understand your concerns, instead of talking at you and giving orders, which really puts you at ease. Especially when you are emotional like me. Crossing fingers. Trial starts end of the month.
