I was referred to Simon by another attorney for a complicated DUI case. I was faced with the DMV suspending my license because I supposedly "refused" to take the blood test. I did not refuse. I requested a blood test but they could not find a vein to take the test. Then the police forwarded a report to the DMV and DA which said I had refused. I met with so many attorneys. I was so scared because I drive for a living as a sales rep for a major company. Can you imagine what it might have felt like if you lost your drivers license for a year and your job depended it? The other lawyers (3) that I met with told me that they were successful at winning 30% of refusal cases. One particular attorney that I called couldn't handle these cases because of its difficulty and recommended Simon and his team, because he focuses and works the most challenging cases.
When I met with Simon, I was very careful to listening if he was selling me or if he understood the complexity of my case and what it meant to me and my family. He didn't tell me what I wanted to hear. Actually the opposite. He gave me the awful statistics but then explained why they were so low. He then told me what he would need from me (statements), doctors notes, etc and outlined a plan to try and get me out of this mess. He promised nothing but he was the only one that had a strategy. So I hired him. In the end the DA dropped the criminal case and I got a letter from the DMV that my license was no longer suspended.
I couldn't be happier with Simon and Core Law Group
It was a late Sunday afternoon when I was served to appear in court that Monday morning. I called a family member to see if he knew of any Lawyers he could refer me to. Without hesitation he gave me the number to Core Law group, LLP. I didn't have anytime to waste in preparing for the morning hearing so I called immediately. Much to my surprise someone answered the phone. Simon just happen to be in the office on his day off. Simon listened to my situation and calmed my nerves and said he would handle everything. My first meeting with Simon was at the Court House Monday morning at 8 A.M. He literally talked me off the ledge with his knowledge of the law and said the plaintiff is only going to get your time...nothing else. The plaintiffs Lawyer had a campaign of attacks all in vain. Simon and his wonderful Staff were always 4 steps ahead of the Plaintiffs Lawyer. We had 7 different Judges, 3 hearings and WON each case! I called the office on a few occasions to update or inquire and his knowledgeable support staff helped me understand what was going on and that Simon would call me back ASAP. When discussing fees Simon and his staff made that a painless experience as well!
I was recently involved in another Frivolous Law suit...again I called Core Law and Simon took my call after hours. Simon, his team of Lawyers and support staff gave 110%, professional at all times and a pleasure to have done business with at a very scary time.
Worked with many attorneys. Simon at Core Law Group is one of the elite.
I had a pretty serious problem with the DMV and the court. My charge, driving on a suspended license pursuant to a DUI. Mandatory 10 days minimum in jail, but up to 6 months, and a probation violation (more jail) an interlocking device on my ignition, revocation of driver’s license for 3 years and fines of about $3,000. Needless to say that would have ruined my livelihood.
I decided to hire a DUI / DMV hearing attorney. I have worked with many many attorneys for the past 20 years for various reasons and always did best when I hired a person who focuses in the area of law that I need. Simon is just that guy. The guy knows his stuff legally and knows the judges and DA’s. He can tell you what the judge is going to do before the judge does it. I witnessed that in Court as we waited for my case to be called up. In the end he got my license back for me and turned the criminal charge into a moving violation.
My charges were reduced to a reckless driving from a DUI. It took many months but they finally got it done for me. I wish it was a dismissal as I was borderline but as Simon explained it the risk was too much to take this case to trial. I will take the reckless driving and make sure I dont get in this mess again.
Orange County DUI Case - Found them after dealing with a useless PD for 9 months. So glad I did.
I was represented by Simon and Julie in a DUI refusal case in Westminster. I had agreed to a blood test after I was pulled over. My BAC came back lower than 0.8 (great) but the blood also came back positive for Cocaine. I had never done drugs in my life. I got a PD and for 9 months the guy dragged out my case. I repeatedly came back to court every 2 months and he would always tell the Judge that he needed to have the blood retested and needed to continue the case. 9 months in I got fed up and started looking for a private attorney. Simon was the only guy that would take installment payments. He got the blood retested right away and got the drug portion of the case dropped leaving me with a reckless driving. I was facing a year in jail and ended up doing community service (instead of paying a fine). I wish i had not wasted time with the PD and put myself through a year of hell.
I had this firm work on my DUI case. I am a executive at a local company and found them on this site. I talked to a bunch of attorneys but finally picked Simon for three reasons. First, by the time I met with him he had already analyzed the strenghts and wekenesses of my case based on what I had told him over the phone. Second, he had a written strategy which he gave me. Third, his prices were fair. Not the best quote but it was not outrageous like some of the others. I also liked the fact that he gave me his cell phone number before I even hired him and told me to feel free to text if I had more questiosn. No other attorney did that. Through the case I was able to text him with concerns and he usually replied right away. My case just ended. The results were good. I did not get a dismissal as I had hoped but the charges were brought down to a reckless driving. In my case it seemed this was a very good deal and it was not worth risking a DUI conviction by taking the case to trial.
Good Lawyer. Kept me updated through the process. Was always available to me by text even which was surprising.
Good attorney. Kept the cost down for my grandmother.
Simon took my grandma's case. Before him I called so many lawyers about her case but none were willing to take it on. She is retired and did not have a few thousand dollars for a retainer that they asked for. One lady wanted $7500 to start. My grandmother is retired and has a limited income. I explained this to Simon. He met with us for free. Explained the case to us and put her on a pay as you go installment plan. She ended up paying very little compared to most of the other lawyers quoted us even though this was a complicated case that involved an accident.
My boyfriend and I met with Simon regarding a commercial DUI. This was a case that im not proud of. A month later Simon called me and said that the DA was agreeing to a deal and not making it worse for me as a commercial driver. I will recommend him. My boyfriend already asked him to do a labor dispute but Simon said my BF would be wasting his money paying an attorney and gave him the website he needed to file the labor claim himself.
Having The Core Law Group, Lead By Shamoon, on Your Side Will Get The Job Done At A Reasonable Rate
I found the Core Law Group through my employer sponsored legal assistance membership to ARAG. I was impressed with them from the start. I made several calls to different law firms who were members of ARAG. They were the only firm that had a live person there to answer my call during working hours. They got me in for an initial free consultation right away.
Obviously, you can tell by my tone of my review that we won the case. Shamoon was creative and diligent in his arguements. Shamoon and his team worked well with me, they charged me fairly.
