David Simon attended UC Davis, majoring in both International Relations and Economics and graduated with honors from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He started his career as a litigator at one of the most prestigious law firms in the country, suing insurance companies and intellectual property infringers for hundreds of millions of dollars.

He then left Heller Ehrman to work as the General Counsel of an airline company. While there, he supervised and managed outside counsel, and he learned how frustrating it is to be the Client seeking solutions and only hearing about obstacles from the attorneys. Clients don't want to hear about what they can't do; they want to hear how to achieve their goals. It's the attorney's job to figure out solutions.

After leaving the airline company, he went to work as an Assistant District Attorney. As a prosecutor, he appeared in court nearly every day, and brought hundreds of criminals to justice.

It is with a drive for excellence, and a passion to help solve people's legal problems that we at Simon Law work hard to be Your Legal Team.

Great lawyer!
David Simon is a great lawyer. He helped us deal with the consequences of a major fire in our apartment that destroyed the entire building and two adjacent properties. He quickly gained our trust over the two years that it took to resolve this case. He gave us clear explanations of complex legal issues and kept us well informed on what to expect at all times. He took very good care of us, kept our insurance company honest and negotiated hard on our behalf. He is very articulate, persistent, astute... and a nice person too.
