Simona is very responsive, knowledgeable, courteous, professional, communicator, leader, direct, smart, graceful, driven, fast, and personable lawyer. She is lawyer who fights for you. I am so thankful I chosen her. Simona is thoughtful and understands your problem and not afraid to speak the truth in court. . If you are looking for someone who is looking for your best interest and willing to actually listen to your needs and worries during a difficult situation this is the right attorney for you.
She is very approachable and has a good relationship with the court as well as a strong professional network with other attorneys in the trade. When the other side tried to use coercive tactics, she pushed back. There were periods where I thought she powerfully pushed the other sides to do the right thing. She helped me get an excellent settlement agreement, under difficult circumstances, in less than one year.
She is THE leader in family law. I would highly recommend Simona. Her communication skills and style are very direct and plain language which makes it easy and efficient to do business with her. She was encouraging with her advice. After so many difficult moments, particularly concerning my daughter’s safety and happiness, Simona fought for “her best interest”, and got what we justly wanted. Our faith translated into the name of Simona; she has given us back the joy to live. When Simona says that they take your case personally, she really mean it! The dedication of Simona went way above and beyond anything we could have hoped for, and she successfully ended a reign of bullying that had been going on for 12 years. I am running out of words to elaborate Simona’s professionalism but in very short, she is THE lawyer and I wish her all the best and success in her life

For the past 15 years I have looked to Simona for advise and representation for my legal matters. Simona handled a variety of cases for me, she remained vigilant and diligent from start to finish. Simona met every challenge which my cases presented with professionalism and expertise. Simona was always responsive whether by email or phone, I never felt as though I was out of the loop, I felt as though I knew our plan of action and where we stood. I feel lucky to have had Simona represent me for the past 15 years, she is the first person I go to when I need help with legal matters. Simona is 100% trustworthy and I would not hesitate to recommend her.
