"I discussed a civil matter with Joseph B Simons and he explained the different courses of action that i could take and the possible outcomes. He is a good listener and he addressed my questions. I wasn't asking him to represent me in court but the legal proscesses and avenues open regarding my situation. His answers were clear and to the point and he even told me of recent legal changes in the law relevant to my case. I can see that he is by nature, a friendly person who likes to help people. Even though, my case was not a criminal one he was still very helpful in his clear explanation of the legal aspects of my situation. I have confidence in him. He genuinely wants to help and makes himself available. He respects his client and tries to understand what the client wants and then explains the law and advises his client so that the client feels he is really working together with someone who wants him to understand his choices. I have had experiences with many lawyers and have often felt that they were more interested in making a quick easy buck than really helping me. I have exceptional confidence and trust in Joseph B Simons sincere desire to be helpful. His willingness and clarity in explaining things demostrates his knowledge and mastery of the law. I had done clerical work as a legal technician and I can recognize and appreciate Joe's expertise in law. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation."
