TESTIMONIALS & REVIEWS
There is a lot of good things that I can say about Barry Simons. I had received a Felony DUI in May 2016. I was bailed out of jail. Upon my release, I inquired w.r.t. an attorney that has a high bar in ethics and was able to get results. After my inquiries and research, I ended up at Barry Simons law office in Laguna Beach. Now I have had previous felony priors, so I needed someone that was going to give me their best in representation. There is a lot of hype about lawyers that take your money and do not adequately represent you if at all. A lot of that is true and by firsthand knowledge. This is absolutely not the case with Barry. He is worth every penny and then some. I have to personally thank Barry in the manner in which he handled my case. I will go as far as to say he took a personal interest in me and my case. While I was facing some years in prison, Barry was able to keep from that happening. I was a complete wreck and in the deepest dark thralls of my alcoholic addiction. Barry was the one who got me to a physician that specializes in this kind of dependency. That doctor got me on a counter active regimen that combats further abuse. To this day I am still with this doctor. Barry got me proactive in my court ordered requirements. Now what I was facing and what I wanted the outcome to be were 2 different ideas. I resisted and Barry guided my thinking to a more practical level of what was to come. After a few court dates and some sobriety under my belt I was ready to face my consequences. The outcome was one of true marvel that Barry performed. I spent very little time in jail, not what I expected. I had the usual court ordered requirements outline by my case. He was able to make so that I avoided any court programs or lengthy incarceration. Today I am free and I have completed most of my court order requirements. In addition, I am still sober and happy. I owe all this to Barry Simons. If it weren’t for his personal dedication to my well-being and court case, I am not sure where I would be today. He never missed a court date nor was ever late. Thank you Barry and all you have done for me.
“ABOVE AND BEYOND!”
“I first met Barry Simons ten years ago when I was midway through medical school. At the time, I had been charged with a felony DUI, which I feared could have abruptly ended my aspirations of becoming a physician very early in my career. Barry guided me through the complex legal process, from the criminal proceedings to DMV hearings, via various creative resources to deal with my specific situation. As a result, he helped to minimize the legal ramifications I had to face. With Barry’s help, I completed medical school on schedule and went on to become an interventional cardiologist, which is what I practice today. Throughout the years, Barry has continued to provide guidance when needed, for example, answering questions on professional applications regarding disclosure of information. He has tirelessly been an advocate for me and has always remained sensitive to my primary goal, which is to be able to practice medicine. I cannot thank Barry enough for his assistance; without him, I truly do not think I would be in my position today.”
“YOUR NOT GOING TO GET SOME ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL APPROACH”
“In my experience, attorneys have been ind of hit and miss. Seems that some are snakes, and some are average, but very rarely you’ll get one who’s a savior. These are the ones who are able to give you several priceless years of your life that you would not have otherwise experienced. Barry is without question one of these saviors. He is clearly cause oriented, he knows the system inside and out, and he and his team are as punctual as they get. Check his credentials and I doubt you’ll find a lawyer who has accomplished what he has accomplished, or who can do what he can do. I would recommend Barry Simons to anybody I know, as the best attorney out there.”
“DID WHAT THEY SAID THEY WOULD DO . . . . MY DAUGHTER DID NOT END UP IN JAIL FOR 6 YEARS. THANK YOU”
Two years ago my daughter was arrested for a felony dui, dui with great bodily harm, and she had not yet turned 21. I can’t express the feeling of doom and fear that my daughter had injured some innocent person. How to you find a bail bondsman? How do you find an attorney? The bail bondsman had collected attorney reviews on his site and Mr. Simons got good reviews. My husband, daughter and I went to see Mr. Simons who told us our daughter was looking at 6 years in jail. No words could express how we all felt. Mr. Simons did give us hope that he would be the person who would fight to keep her out of jail and shoot for home confinement. The retainer was costly for us, but if he could keep her out of jail, it would all be worth it. The victim did recover, thank God for that. And true to his word, my daughter’s sentence ended up being 3 months of home confinement. His office did what they said they would do and I’m so happy to have had her home. Their experience and their relationships with the courts is what you pay for and that saved my daughter. She’s still facing a slew of legal stuff that will follow her for a long, long time.She made a horrific error in judgement, but with the help of the Law Offices of Barry T Simons, my daughter did not end up in jail for six years. Thank you.
“I THOUGHT MY LIFE WAS OVER”
My experience with the Law Offices of Barry T Simons was truly amazing. About a year ago I was charged with 2 felonies of Dui with great bodily Injury and a hit and run. After bailing myself out from jail the following day, I thought my life was over. I was filled with despair and discouragement. After doing much research in criminal attorneys and attending countless consultation meetings, I came across SuperLawyers.com. It was there where I found Barry and requested a consultation meeting via website. I got a call the same evening from Barry asking me to come in the following day. After meeting him and talking much about my case, I hired him. That was the best decision of my life. Barry has gone above and beyond in fighting for me throughout this case. He was always easy to get a hold of and always opened his office doors for me if needed. His paralegal, Arial, was also great with assisting me in what I needed. Barry even went to the extent of hiring me a separate personal Injury lawyer to assist me with working out a civil restitution agreement with the victim, because he felt it wasn’t his circle of competence in that field and wanted me to get the best advice possible and told me to pay him back later in life, what kind of lawyer is that honest and kind?! He showed up to every court date and was punctual. Through Mr. Simons efforts, I went from facing four years prison to formal probation with 42 days of Home Confinement with the approval of going to work,school, and other court approved activities. I truly believe none of this would be possible without him by my side. To say I am eternally grateful for Barry T. Simons help would be an understatement. BEST LAWYER EVER!
“EXTREMELY SMOOTH AND PROFESSIONAL!” “Mr. Simons and his office provided me with a great deal of help. I was charged with petty theft recently and Mr. Simons was able to bargain with the DA to give me a DEJ. There isn’t really much more to add. Everything was extremely smooth and professional; he always kept me informed of my situation. I am profoundly grateful for his office’s service and would recommend him to anyone.”
“MY DEEPEST GRATITUDE FOR A BLESSED OUTCOME!”
I cannot begin to express how grateful and blessed I am for the outcome of my case. Prior to my incident, I have never had to hire an attorney for anything, and quite honestly, thought I never would have to. In circumstances like these where you admit to being responsible, you are also blindsided and more scared than ever of what lies ahead. At the very beginning of this emotional time, my only concern was to find legal representation. I couldn’t tell you what the key was in finding the right lawyer, or even what makes a good lawyer. However, I can tell you that choosing one carefully based on their merits, as well as their reassurance is what I believe led me to find Barry Simons.
Naturally, no promises can be made, and nothing is ever guaranteed, especially for DUI charges. After my incident, I sought further counsel, including consultations with five other firms in addition to Barry Simons to compare and contrast. Barry was the first attorney I consulted with, and he had spent an hour with me going over the possibilities of my case. I had never been in any serious trouble before, and I was financially unprepared for what the fight would cost. But, nonetheless, Barry put me at ease by being honest with my situation and making me feel like I wasn’t a criminal. Truthfully, the reassurance of his having my best interest was the big motivator in my final decision to proceed.”
“Barry and his team used a series of tactics to explore all angles of my case. What could easily be overlooked by anyone else, Barry and his team discovered and examined even further. Their knowledge of criminal defense, as well as their excellent communication and persuasive skills made it possible for every portion of this matter to be considered.”
“WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND – THAT’S RARE”
They were thorough through the entire process. I could always speak to attorneys Barry Simons or Daniel Flores whenever there was a question. They left no room for error every step of the way and their staff was attentive and able to bring up support documentation whenever needed. All this would have merited a good review. However, their real value came when I had a post-trial issue. Although I was no longer officially a client, they showed up in court to support me without question. There was a true commitment to my well being that went above and beyond — and that is rare. Oh, and did I mention that they helped reduce my penalty? Thank you Barry, Daniel and Team!
“AN ATTORNEY THAT WILL EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS”.
“Barry kept me well informed throughout my case via correspondence and explained to me his motives for the steps he and his team were going to initiate, as well as the potential consequences. With such unsettling circumstances, it makes a world of difference to find an attorney that will exceed your expectations. In the end, the DUI charges were dropped and I was given an exchange plea of admitting to a Wet Reckless; I took the plea and the case concluded after 9 months.”
“I WILL NEVER FORGET YOUR EFFORTS”
“I feel as though a huge burden had been lifted off my shoulders, and an enormous weight removed from my heart. I’ve grown so much from this experience, not only personally, but professionally and spiritually. I have a renewed sense of peace and continue to show my positivity and gratitude every single day. I will never forget your efforts, and know that if a good friend of mine or family member should need assistance in the future, I will refer you, and only you.”
“With deepest thanks; kindest regards; abundant blessings to you and yours, and infinite prosperity…”
“THE BEST OF THE BEST”
“A few years ago I found myself in a position where I could end up spending several years in prison, needless to say I was in serious need of a top notch defense attorney. After a small amount of research it quickly became clear that Barry was the best of the best. That day my family and I went to see him. After I explained what had happened Barry quickly got to work on the case, constantly keeping me informed of everything that I needed to do, and of the progress he was making. Barry, Alan, and the rest of the team were, without question, on point every step of the way. Since then my life has made a 180 degree turn for the better, and I attribute this largely to the incredible job done by Barry and his team in protecting my freedom, and giving me a second chance. Thank you guys. Everything you’ve done is greatly appreciated.”
“ANTICIPATED PROBLEMS, AND HAD SOLUTIONS AT THE READY”
“Mr. Simons, his associates, and staff, were very through, professional, and personally supportive to my family, to get us past very difficult times in our lives. His court demeanor, preparedness, and unrelenting determination to secure the best possible results with our cases was reassuring to my family, as he guided us through the legal system. With his extensive background, as well as the support of his in-house associates, and staff, we were given both personal affirmation, and confidence, that our cases would result in the best and fairest results available. From Mr. Simons’ office we witnessed only complete and calculated devotion to our problems, and even anticipated problems, and had solutions at the ready, when needed. Without hesitation, I would personally recommend Mr. Simons and his complete office to anyone, and would never think twice about it.”
“SOLID AND CAPABLE ATTORNEY”
I live in Texas and hired Mr. Simons to represent me in order to clear up an old charge in the State of California. I had no idea where to start in the process. I began a tiring search for representation involving many, many phone calls to various firms, most of which, never got back to me or gave me the run-around. I had come across Mr. Simon’s information and reviews stating that he ran a reputable firm. After an almost immediate telephone consultation on my first call, I was given clear timelines, goals and expectations regarding my case. During the entire process, I was able to call and speak with my attorney directly within 24hrs of my inquiry. My attorney clearly reached out to me if anything was needed on my behalf by phone or email. His knowledge of California law led to a speedy and favorable determination in my favor. Being out of state, the communication really kept me at ease with how things were progressing. It gave me peace of mind that I needed in order to live my day-to-day. It gave me confidence that everything was in good hands and that I was being represented by a solid and capable attorney. I would highly recommend this firm and encourage anyone seeking representation to consult with Mr. Simons.
“I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER”
“Mr. Simons and all of the employees at the firm are amazing. I had a very difficult case and I was terrified of the potential ramifications/sentencing that I faced. The past three months (since my arrest) have been absolute hell but Barry and his team saved me! I was kept informed of the progress/status of my case regularly and the results turned out well in my favor and I couldn’t be happier. And not only is Barry an exceptional attorney, he is also a nice guy who always treated me with respect and in a professional manner. I will sleep well tonight thanks to Barry and his team. You guys are the best! Thanks,”
FANTASTIC SERVICE, GREAT REPRESENTATION
“Barry Simons Law Firm, maintained a clear head and kept me well informed of possible outcomes for the different set of circumstances I faced. Not only did he obtain a favorable bargain for my case, he never once wavered at the possibility of future litigation. If you are facing a DUI, the last thing you want is an attorney that is scared to go to trial on your behalf. I felt confident that my representation gave me an advantage over the other side due to his dedication to see the case through.”

THANKS A MILLION!!!
TOTAL WIN IN MY EYES
“Field Test was .12 and station test was .09. I had a prior unrelated charge and was on informal probation when the alleged violation occurred. After, 10 months of continuous effort the Law Office of Barry T Simons was able to get my DUI dropped to a “wet reckless” with 3 years informal probation. I’m very thankful for the Team of Lawyers at Barry’s office for their extra efforts as I didn’t end up in jail due to the prior. Total Win in my eyes.”
A FAIR SENTENCE FOR MY FELONY DUI
“I would recommend Barry Simons to anyone going through the traumatic trial of a DUI. Barry Simons and his staff were instrumental in getting me a fair sentence for my Felony DUI. I couldn’t have imagined putting my fate in the hands of any other DUI Attorney. He was extremely thorough and personal in every matter on my case.”
