A Few Things Clients Have Posted Online About Roger:

"Roger Simon & the firm were so supportive & made me feel secure being their client. I can even say that I lost a little faith in God but I never lost faith in Roger & the rest of the team. Thank you for making my life a lot better. BLESSINGS!!"

"When no one would give us the time of day Rodger Simon took our case and won it. He is compassionate, understanding and extremely knowledgeable. When we were going to court we were extremely nervous. On the first day of our case my husband jokingly said to Rodger Simon " I want a Perry Mason." Rodger Simon looked at my husband and said not a word. OMG! Did he give my husband a Perry Mason and then some. There is an elegance a special quality that you want your attorney to have when he argues your case. Rodger Simon has that elegance and quality. At the closing argument of our case I felt without a doubt Rodger Simon was prepared and battled hard for us."

"Roger Simon and his firm is not just your typical lawyer they are the best…Don't just hire a lawyer hire someone who actually cares and listens to your inside pain not what you look like. Thank you again."
