"I am very pleased and had a wonderful experience with the firm. Would definitely use their services again."
"I appreciate all that the Simmons firm has done for me. I’m thrilled with the result they got for me and want to say thanks to everyone there."
"I lost my wife to a heart attack caused by a dangerous drug. While nothing I do will ever bring her back, the Simmons firm helped ensure that other people won’t have to suffer the same loss as me. That product is no longer on the market and the company responsible for selling it to my wife paid a heavy financial price for hurting people like her."
"My mom had a catastrophic stroke as a result of taking a weight-loss product. The Simmons firm fought tirelessly to get her the best result possible. Thanks to them we can afford to get her the medical and therapeutic care she needs."
