    I have known Celine Simon since law school. She is dilligent, professional, and a bull dog on debt collection case. She has a tremendous focus on the client's goals for the litigation. I highly recommend her.

    Celine is outside counsel for the bank that I am inhouse counsel at. We use nearly 40 different law firms throughout the state so I am able to compare the services and practices of many different law firms. I believe Celine and her firm have given us excellent service and are among the best in terms of client service, fees, and quality of representation. Celine is competent and well versed in bankruptcy and creditor/debtor rights issues.
