We put you first.

With centuries of cumulative litigation experience in service to our clients, we have a dedicated staff of over 275 people ready to give you the attention and respect you deserve. We treat our clients as our number one priority. Through no fault of your own, you are facing a life-changing situation and deserve to have your voice heard in the American legal system. We are deeply committed to giving you that strong, powerful voice to stand up for your rights. No matter the issue, Simmons Hanly Conroy is ready to help you at every stage of the legal process. We strive to provide you with the information and tools you need to make informed, confident decisions.  

We come to you.

You do not need to live near one of our office locations to file a lawsuit with us. Whenever necessary, our investigators will travel to your location to speak with you further on the details regarding your case.  

We do the work.

Not only is it highly unlikely that you will have to travel out of the area you live, but also we do our best to require as little from you as possible. We strive to settle lawsuits out of court if possible, and should the need for a trial arise, we will make the process as easy as possible for you and your loved ones. We will make the preparations for trial, and work with you to complete any paperwork needed.
