I made a phone call to Christopher Simon based on the other reviews here. I called and his secretary piped me right through to his cell phone. I had been to a sleazy lawyer right after the accident and I wasw uneasy about trying to only get top dollar for my accident. I didn't want to have to hire a lawyer, but I wasn't happy about the settlement the insurance company had offered. After speaking with Mr. Simon about 20 minutes, he let me know that hiring him didn;t make sense. He told me that while the offer was on the low end, we weren't being totally ripped off. He gave me GREAT advise as to how to go forward. WoW! What a honest, knowledgable lawer. I appreciate your advise, time, and honesty. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, or use him if need be in the future.

I have dealt with many attorney in my life and I have to say Chris Simon was the best attorney I ever had. To give you some details of the case he handled, it was a wrongful death case. My brother Eddie was hit by a drunk drive while driving home in December 2010; accident was all over newspapers and media. It was a fatal accident and my brother died of brain death caused by this accident. He is genuinely a great human being who will only get you the settlements you deserve but will fight for justice but also punish criminals. There are many attorneys out there who are only after your money but not once I felt that Chris was after the settlement only. He is the only one I will ever trust handling any difficult and serious injury cases. If I need attorneys in other areas, he also gets me referrals on great and honest attorneys.There are so many great things I can say about Chris and there are no words to describe how passionate and competent he is in what he does.We are very grateful to have him represent us, and it was our absolute honor to be his clients.

After a slip and fall accident in a local restaurant I called and interviewed several attorneys. Mr. Simon stood out from all the rest. He was kind and understanding and listened to my concerns. He was thorough in his investigating and with interviewing my doctors. He called me often with questions and updates. I highly recommend him. He is ethical and fair. Thanks Chris!

We had general questions. Mr Simon spoke with us directly and treated us as human beings, not walking dollar signs. He went as far as finding out the best way to resolve our situation. So glad for Kudzu, so glad for Mr. Simon. Thank you, will definitely use again.

I do not recommend this law firm as Chris does not return messages. I reached out to Chris after reading positive reviews here. After my experience, I wonder if they are "real" reviews. Or maybe the firm is out of business now.

I'm sorry, but I doubt your candor. I am Chris and I return all of my messages. Anyone reading this should know that as an injury and car accident lawyer, we are very picky and do not accept every case. That means that either Trip or I have spoken with every single client and know them by name. Given the throwaway line speculating about us being out of business is the giveaway. Our phones are answered 6 days a week from 8 am to 8pm. Whoever you are feel free to call us but do not take your frustration at me not accepting your case out by spreading misinformation. By the way I will gladly give you names and dates for every single one of our clients that leave us reviews and you are welcome to contact them once I get their permission.
My wife and I were involved in a rear-end hit and run accident that totaled our car and left us both with some back and neck pain. We thought we could handle it ourselves since it seemed to be a minor case which would not be worth very much. Unfortunately the insurance company's total offer was less than our total medical bills. After speaking with Chris Simon we were certain he would work hard to represent us and make sure we got the settlement we deserved. He even helped us to find reputable physicians and physical therapists who would treat us under an attorney's lien. Chris was always easy to reach by phone and always returned my voicemails promptly. He also gave us a lot of help and advice to settle our property damage. Chris was always straight-forward about our case and what we should expect. Chris' reputation precedes him and once the insurance company knew he was representing us they quickly changed their attitude. THANKS CHRIS!

In August of 2009 I received a call from my local Sheriff that my brother had been killed in an auto accident in GA. I live in TN. I contacted several Attorneys in GA. and after speaking to each, decided on Chris Simon. There was something friendly, compassionate, knowledgeable and professional about him that was different from the others. It turns out, I made the absolute right decision. There was never a time that I called or emailed him that he did not immediately respond to me, even if he was in court, via his Blackberry, even on the weekend. He kept me aprised of every aspect of the case, his thoughts, his feelings, and always asked my permission to move forward with his plan. He is a true professional as is his staff. He worked his "butt" off for me and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of the case. I would, without hesitation, recommend Chris Simon to represent you.

I was involved in a frightening car accident that left me with recurring pain that sidelined me from my active lifestyle. Chris was recommended to me by my dad, an insurance industry veteran who was familiar with Chris' client-centered work ethic. I found Chris' advice to be sound and appreciated the attention and diligence he gave to my case throughout a lengthy process of sorting out medical and insurance matters. I would highly recommend Chris, and would definitely look to him for legal advice in the future. Thanks, Chris!

I was involved in a bad collision that totaled my truck and left me pretty banged up. I'd never been involved in anything like that before and didn't have a clue about what to do. I was too hurt to get up out of bed and already the other driver's insurance was pressuring me to "meet with them in person" and settle up quickly. I also began getting calls from shady lawyers and law firms within a day of the police report being published. I have a job and am an honest person. I felt like I'd been legitimately injured in an accident that was not my fault and knew that the other driver's insurance company did not have my best interest in mind. My biggest concern with contacting a lawyer though was to find someone honest who wasn't out chasing ambulances. I scoured the internet and Chris' name seemed to stand out in client reviews (which is why I am coming back to post my own review). Imagine my relief when he actually vetted me with a few questions to make sure I was the type of client he could in good conscience represent! Chris has been 100% honest and up front about everything we've ever spoken about. He was able to answer every nagging question, knew the entire process and was able to guide me through it. Most importantly, he genuinely seemed to care about what I'd been through and where I was at mentally after the crash. If you are in that same place I can't think of a better person to have on your side. I strongly recommend Chris.

I was involved in a car accident in October, 2008 and was referred to Chris Simon by a local lawyer who uses him for his personal needs. Our first conversation was extremely helpful; He offered assistance and advice from the beginning without any expectations or commitment. After answering all my questions and concerns, I knew Chris and his team for right for me. Chris and his team were easily accessible by email or phone and returned my messages without delay; I received regular updates from Chris and feel like my case went smoothly, especially when I hear of others horror stories. I am extremely satisfied with the direct contact Chris and I had and his efforts to explain as well as the general timeliness and success of my case. Thank you Simon & Faenza!
