"I knew straight from the beginning that my case was not going to be easy to defend.I had numerous charges and I was very worried that my luck had come to an end. Mr. Simms was very honest with me from the beginning and said that the outcome was going to depend on my willingness to go along with what was going to be required of me to make this DUI 'GO AWAY'. I can say that I was very satisfied with the representation I received and would definitely recommend Mr. Simms to represent any of my friends and business associates. He truly worked a miracle for me and I will be forever grateful."
