    This case was very complicated and technical dealing with local, state and federal law. Mr. Simons spent appropriate time in the planning and preparation of this case. He provided a tremendous leadership quality with his supportive and insightful abilities. I couldn't imagine someone more qualified and I feel very fortunate that he agreed to take on this case, especially as it involved government.

    Mr. Simons and his entire staff are very professional as well as personal in their care for their clients. In both instances that we have used Mr. Simons to represent us, he has always made us feel very comfortable, well cared for, and confident that we had the best representation possible. I would recommend Mr. Simons to family,friends, and even to strangers...he is very competent in his field.
