Client Reviews

David is an outstanding lawyer. David was most caring on a personal level as well as working on my case. His understanding and honesty was genuine. I would advise you, to call David. He should be the first lawyer you call for your situation. I highly recommend him.

Im not a Google review guy .. BUT today I am !!! ... Dave Simmons ( who I never knew prior to choosing him randomly from Google ) truly proved he can get things done. It was scary deciding what lawyer you choose to put your life in their hands as Im sure we all realize ... I told him my issue , he said " Ill handle it " .. and he did.. and better than I hoped for. I was happy with him reducing my 2nd degree felony with jailtime on top, to a 3rd degree with no jailtime... I said OK lets take that... But he said NO. I can do better. Alot of these bottom feeding run of the mill lawyers would have just said take that charge , Im done, but he didnt.. He fought harder and got me a pety theft Misdemeanor which was amazing... No jail.. Hes a straight up guy , he wont sugar coat things and bs you as alot of these ambulance chasing clowns will. Hes honest , and does what he says hes going to do. I would recommend Dave to a family member WITHOUT HESITATION. I believe Im a free man because of him. Thanks man! Ill never forget . Hope and trust Ill never need you again but I feel better knowing if I did, I have you in my corner. Hope I can re-pay the favor one day. Fan forever!

Dave Simmons is a skilled attorney who cares about his clients. My experience with Mr. Simmons was very positive & I highly recommend him to others.


Dave Simmons is the best of the best. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I called him on the spur of the moment and he listened to me, took on my case with a discounted fee considering I still had to fly down to Florida within 3 days and I won my case! If you need the best Dave Simmons is the best!!!!! THANK YOU DAVE!!!!!!!

Kristi Moore

David has been a long time family attorney, and I wouldn't change that decision from the first day we met him! He handled a difficult criminal case for my husband recently, and without him, my husband wouldn't be able to be here at home with our family! David was very professional and prompt, he was very understanding of our situation, and was helpful and dedicated through it all!

P Pinnock

I would like to first say on behalf of my whole family, thank you!! Dave Simmons delivered on everything he promised and really came through for my family!!! Thanks to his extensive knowledge of the law, we had a successful outcome. He kept in constant contact with me throughout the entire process, was hard working and dedicated. I hope I never need the assistance of an attorney again, but if I do, I won't be looking any further than Dave Simmons

Jeff M

Dave is a excellent attorney! he handled my cases very well an not to mention always answered the phone when I called!!!! Also very reasonable price. He was willing to go to the court house for me and pay my fines si I didn't have to drive 7 hours to pay them and so I could get my licenses back that day. I highly recommend Dave Simmons best attorney in FLORIDA!

Dave is a hardworking attorney who is passionate about the law and his clients. Will fight for his clients in each and every aspect of their cases.

Michael McMullen

I have to say that I didn't know the first thing of what I needed to do for my situation. I was so pleased to have Dave Simmons to represent me and lead the way of what needed to be done. He was always 100% right on target and accurate on everything he told me. I have to say that having someone as knowledgeable as Dave Simmons is so important and hard to find. He had great direction in getting me through my case, always very professional and very patient with all of my questions. He deffinately has all the knowledge that one could ever ask for. He was always there for me if and when I had additional questions and helped calm me down to help me understand what the next move in my case would be. After every scheduled court date that he attended on my behalf, he always followed up with a phone call promplty after court to explain what had taken place and what the next step would be. The end result was a good one and now the only thing needing to be done is having Dave Simmons expunge my record of this incident and I will be all done with this case and could not have done it without him. If you are needing someone to represent you in a criminal case I highly recommend that you use Dave Simmons.

When I first met Atty Dave, I had no idea what to expect from an attorney other than what is on Television etc. During our initial consultation, Dave's calm/humble demeanor and informative guidance gave me the feeling that everything would work out fine. He is honest, devoted, diligent, understanding, and professional. Dave listened to me and took the time to explain my options and offer (before/after) advice. I can compare Dave to that of a friend (in time of need) and would recommend him to anyone in need of legal advice or representation.

Nakita Howe

I hired Dave Simmons to represent me for a criminal case. The case was serious and I was facing prison time. Dave was very professional and made me feel at ease from the beginning. He was able to get my case dismissed!! He is the best!!!

R Weiss

I went to Dave with an issue to resolve through the courts after another attorney told me that it would be quite expensive and take a lot of hours to resolve. I provided Dave with all of the information that I had and he told me exactly what to expect with the process and timeline. His office handled all of my inquiries in a quick and professional manner. He was able to do exactly what he promised. I would not hesitate to use his legal services again and would highly recommend him for your legal needs.

M Malloy

He was very helpful. He helped my boyfriend with a probation violation. His expertise allowed the judge to dismiss the probation in its entirety. My boyfriend was free to go home without being arrested. Many thanks to him!

Wilda Milhomme

If you're looking for an attorney who actually cares about your case... call Mr. Simmons. I've seen reviews before and some are quite contrived... mine is real. I was a client of his and I will attest to his character and professionalism under oath. From my initial consultation, until the closing of my case Mr. Simmons helped me understand the procedure and kept his word. Better yet, he defended me. Isn't that what we all want, someone to actually defend us? Although I was anxious to resolve my case, Dave methodically worked through his legal strategy and defended me aggressively. My case was dimissed!! Every case is unique; but for me, I cannot express enough what a relief it was to actually have someone work on my behalf. I am grateful, I am humbled, and I highly recommend him. Dave Simmons did a terrific job for me. He is a solid attorney with great character.

Shawn Connors

I am impressed with Dave's work. My ex wife accused me with number of crimes including rape, after I asked for divorce (she also needed a"Green Card"). I was really worried, but Dave presented this case very professionally, shortly after hearing started I had no doubt that we will win. 5 stars! A+! 100%! Thank you!

Igor Nekoristov

Hiring Dave Simmons as my attorney was by far the best decision I made after I was arrested. Being a father and in the military for 6 years I couldn't afford to be dishonorably discharged. After facing a serious felony charge and multiple misdemeanor charges. I had no clue what I was going to do. Dave was able to handle most of my case even while I was living out of state. He had my Felony charge dropped and a no contest plea to a minor misdemeanor. Even years later living out of state he has been kind enough to help me aquire paperwork needed for military records. I've maintained an honorable status of service because of Dave's hard work and knowledge of the Law. My family and I will always be grateful to Dave. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone facing legal troubles.

Garrett Scheerer

Dave Simmons has been my trusted attorney since 2009. This gentleman wins cases, and that's that. He takes his work seriously and is easy to talk to. The one time I actually had to appear in court, he was there to move things along and make sure everything went smoothly. I couldn't be happier with the way things went. Thank you Dave!

Spencer Mock

I found Dave to be courteous and very professional. He has a lot of patience and he will fight for you as long it takes to get the best outcome for you .thanks again Dave Simmons.

James Black

Dave really helped me out of a bad situation. I was arrested while on a trip to Florida for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Feeling overwhelmed cause I couldn't show up to court in Florida Dave assured me he would look at every possible avenue to avoid going to court. Dave was able to get the case dismissed upon my completion of a class and a fine. Which is nothing compared to havin this black mark never being on your recored. I highly recommend Dave if you find yourself in a similar situation.


I highly recommend Dave Simmons to any individual who is in need of a criminal lawyer. He was on top of my case from the very beginning. He was easily accessible by phone and email (even on the weekends!!!) And most importantly he was successful in getting a great resolution to my case. Thank you for everything Dave!

Marc Malloy

I have no words to describe how satisfied and grateful I am to have found an outstanding professional like Dave Simmons to work in my case. From day one Dave has been looking out for my best interest and best possible outcome and at the end we obtain the best outcome of my case. I thanks God placing me in front of such of great professional and honest person. I highly recommend Doctor Simmons , and for you Doctor Simmons my appreciation come from the deepest point of my hearth.

Edgar Alvarez

Dave was genuinely cared about our case. He helped alleviate all our concerns every step of the way. He also displayed his talent by catching our opponent in a lie with has cross examination. I would definitely recommend him.


I have to say, after using David Simmons as my criminal attorney for the past ten years, I would recommend his services to everyone and anyone who needs a great attorney that will fight for your rights to the door. Personally I can say, and prove, that Mr. Simmons is the best attorney in Florida. Again, thank you for everything Dave! If anyone has any questions about your experience and services PLEASE tell them to call me!

Tim Fogle

My experience with Dave Simmons was very positive!!! He was very professional and knowledgeable about many aspects of the law. He constantly kept me and my family apprised of what was going on with my case. He took his time and was very thorough, not rushing through any of it. Consequently, he was able to get me a full acquittal of all charges. He is now working on expunging my record, which would have never been possible without his expertise in the law. I would HIGHLY recommend using Mr.Simmons in any criminal case.

J. M.

I would like to thank him not just because he dismissed my case, also for his outstanding and professional job that he did for me. I recommend him to everybody if they want to get result.

Mani Kaven

Outstanding lawyer! I retained Mr. Simmons on two very serious domestic violence cases. He worked diligently on both cases obtaining exceptional results. Both cases were dismissed! Mr. Simmons helped me through a very difficult time. He was always available to speak on the phone or have a meeting in his office. I highly recommended Mr Simmons. He is truly a professional at his craft. Thank you Dave!!!

Marvin Miller

Dave, saved my life! I recommend him highly above any other attorney. When other attorneys just wanted money and did not care about me or my case. Mr. Simmons took the time to meet and speak to me to see to it that the criminal justice system did not railroad me. I am eternally grateful to Dave for the work he did in securing a fair judgment on my behalf. He listened to me and understood how much was at stake for me and worked HARD for me to see to it that I got a fair judgement. I cannot stress it enough how great of a man he is. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE trust me when I say you will be extremely happy for choosing him to represent you!

Nicholas Druzbik

I had a great experience hiring attorney Dave Simmons. Very calm and collective and the outcome of both my cases were dismissed. I would recommend anyone who is in need of a criminal attorney. Was on top of my case with the prosecutor and was very honest with me. He was very understanding and received the best possible outcome for my case and situation. Also very reasonable, Thank you Dave Simmons!!!

Matthew Montalbano

All I can say is that I am truly thankful for Dave. He always made sure that we understood every process. Knowing that someone had my brother's (Luis Leyva) future in his hands. It was very hard but having Dave on our side he made it feel at ease. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joel V

I've never had to seek legal representation for myself or a family member so I was afraid and did not know what to expect. Attorney Simmons made our first experience an easy one. It was a blessing to find him. The case against my family member was thrown out. Attorney Dave Simmons, you truly are a lifesaver. Thank you!
