Introduction: I provide legal services in real estate law, corporate & business law, and intellectual property law. My real estate practice includes commercial and residential real estate transactions, such as closings, short sales, condo conversions, advice on condo documents and disputes, building violations, zoning, investment vehicles, etc. I work with individual home owners, investors, and businesses. Also my firm provides services in business law, intellectual property, contracts, corporate formation, governance, securities, and mergers & acquisitions. I have worked with startups to established business, assisting them activities such raising capital, purchasing assets, and protecting intellectual property. My clients are my top priority, and I always ensure they are satisfied with my service. In addition to my legal services, I am a licensed real estate agent. This experience helps me appreciate my client's position, and that of their realtor, during real estate transactions. I trained as a lawyer at Harvard Law School, University of Cambridge, and Chicago-Kent College of Law. I have published numerous academic articles in law, and have taught courses in law at Harvard University and University of Navarra, which is in Spain. I enjoy helping to give people a sense of security and closure. I also enjoy carrying on the legacy of my great grandfather, who was an immigrant to this country and became the first lawyer in our family. He and my grandfather worked in real estate for over 100 years combined.

Real Estate Attorney

We hired David for our recent condo purchase and couldn’t have been happier with his service. Our situation was a bit nuanced as we were renting the place we were purchasing and needed to close in 30 days but David helped make it happen and the process was turn key every step of the way. Always willing to answer all of our questions and provide guidance. The best part about working with David was his speed and responsiveness- replying to every email within minutes no matter what time of day or day of week and was always willing to talk things out on the phone. He even helped with recommendations for a mortgage lender and home inspector. David is incredibly knowledgeable and on top of things- he found multiple ways to save us money throughout the deal. He is top notch and I would recommend him to anyone looking to hire a real estate attorney and would absolutely work with him again. Thanks David!!

Real Estate Attorney

After our previous real estate offer didn't go through due to incompetence of the prior attorney, we realized how important the attorney would be! We decided to carefully select a new attorney when we received another offer. We interviewed a few and finally decided to hire David Simon as our attorney, and we were so happy about our decision. David got the job done WELL! He was a very intelligent and strong attorney without any nonsense. While the agent can help you to get the offer in, he can help you to close the deal without any issue. If you choose David, you will be in good hands!
