Attorney Simmons was very helpful in the first place and guided me in advance to prepare for the hearing with practical and useful advice. He explained to me all possible outcomes. We discussed our strategy and went to court prepared. Thanks to his advice and representation, the judge dismissed the case! I would strongly recommend the services of attorney Simmons.

"Mr. Simmons was referred to me by another lawyer who told me that he is the only person qualified and experienced enough to handle my case. Throughout the trial he took time to calm me down and help me to stay positive. He kept me totally informed about his plan and the status of each step as they progressed. My main concern was going to jail because in my case there was a good chance I would have to serve time. When I found out that he was going to be able to keep me out of jail and get all eight of the felony charges dropped to one misdemeanor I couldn't have been more impressed with his abilities. Furthermore, he spoke to the judge about removing everything from my record in four years time. I was worried about losing everything I had and going to jail for a long time. When you hear the judge say that you are free to go, it's an awesome feeling. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Simmons! "  - A. Wallace

We have recommended Butler and Simmons to friends and family and everyone has been very happy with them. "  - N. Helton

Throughout the process he made me perfectly aware of what my options were and was very clear of the possibilities. As a result of his representation, I not only avoided incarceration but I was able to expunge my record after probation. If you need a lawyer, call Butler and Simmons. I'm glad I did. "  - C. Brace

"I would highly recommend Mr. Simmons as an attorney for any and all legal services. Our experience with Mr. Simmons was professional with an outstanding outcome, but most important he listened and explained the legal process to us along the way so there were no surprises. The fact that he was so accessible is a great quality. When the stress of the unknown faces people with no legal background, it is very important to be able to reach your attorney with both questions and immediate advice. Mr. Simmons always returned phone calls promptly and had the answers. He knows his way around the courtroom and it doesn't hurt that he has an affable personality. Our situation is a personal matter, but our praise for his services is offered with gratitude for a job well done. "  -no name given

"My fiance and his family have been using Mr. Simmons for quite some time now--although this was my first dealings with him. Mr. Simmons is very thorough in his knowledge of law and is able to communicate it in layman's terms without needing the cue of a blank stare. In short, he uses a lot of analogies that help you understand what is going on and what could possibly happen. This man will prepare you for the worse case scenario and coach you through what is most likely to happen. The person in question could've been sentenced to jail time and only received probation (which because of following Mr. Simmons's advice, will probably be taken to unsupervised after less than a year on a 3 year probation sentence). My only complaint is that he can talk a little fast so listen carefully and attentively. I have been in the presence of many lawyers (thanks to my parents' divorce case amongst others regarding my mother) and none come even close to the experience with Mr. Simmons. He is a good guy and is worth every penny. "  -B. Germack

"I was very fortunate to have been able to obtain the services of Butler & Simmons Attorneys at Law for a criminal case. Without the counsel of William A. Simmons, Esq., I am absolutely certain that my case would have taken a turn for the worse. He was able to arrange for a probation before judgment to avoid a conviction and even helped me to obtain an early expungement. He was willing to listen, patient in explaining the possible outcomes, and really cares about the service that he is giving and the people that he is giving this service to. I have met attorneys in the past, but I have never met another one as great as him. My mother has even brought an accident-related case to him after having such a successful outcome with my case. Please call Butler & Simmons, if you need help. You will be glad that you did it. I AM! "  - M. Tadd

"Mr. Simmons helped me after an accident I had in 2009. I was left with hefty medical bills and chronic pain/migraines. He called me frequently to make sure I was well-informed each step of the way as we fought for compensation. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and I don't think I would have been so lucky with just any attorney. I'm very glad that someone referred me to Mr. Simmons. He is extremely knowledgeable and a great counselor. "  - T. Kraus

"I am very satisfied with the service Mr. Simmons provided. Having no former experience with law myself, Mr. Simmons was very considerate, gracious, and helpful in explaining in detail the processes I would be going through and how to directly handle them. With his advice and representation I was able to avoid incarceration, points, and a criminal record--I got the best result possible for my situation. I would highly recommend Mr. Simmons to anybody in need of counsel. He knows what he's doing. "  - T. Vernes
