  • The most dedicated attorney I have ever met! He truly cares about his clients!
    Lance Simon is the most dedicated attorney I have ever met! He truly cares about his clients! He applies himself 100%.....determined to win. I would definitely recommend him to family & friends. He helped me out of a very bad situation and was extremely professional, very well prepared & compassionate! I would never consider using anyone other than Lance if I ever need an attorney again!

  • He is very courteous, honest, understanding and compassionate. I appreciate having someone like Mr. Simon in my corner. Great Attorney with a great heart.

    I have nothing but great things to say about Mr. Simon. I was in need of an attorney for an upcoming court case and I found Mr. Simon on AVVO. Thank Goodness I did because what I didn't know is a few days later Mr. Simon would stop me from making the biggest mistake in my case. He not only guided me to tell me what to do without meeting with me as of yet, but he explained to me thoroughly what I was up against without rushing or speaking fast even though he had to run to court. He is very courteous, honest, understanding and compassionate. I appreciate having someone like Mr. Simon in my corner. Great Attorney with a great heart. There is no reason why you shouldn't hire this Attorney who cares about the people and what he do more than anything. I sat with a few others before Mr. Simon and he is Exceptional by Far!!!

  • Reminding me of the law and steering me away from my emotional attachments to events that were occurring. For that, I am grateful.

    My divorce began in May 2016 and today it finally culminated in an agreement today. To establish some background, my husband asked for this divorce and although I am 41, my parents were an integral part of this whole process and immediately wanted to hire an attorney who could handle this case. When we met Lance Simon my parents hired him on the spot and knew instantly he would be the best person to represent me. He was also professional and so knowledgeable about divorce law and what realistic expectations I could expect. There were many times when I felt emotional and frustrated by the actions of my ex-husband and I would contact Lance with questions and concerns. And he always kept a level head and gave me the right answers and guidance. He also kept open lines of communication with both of my parents and I gave him the go-ahead to speak to them on all legal matters. Which he did. Three voices now instead of one? And all very spirited. That was no easy feat. But he accomplished this extremely well. There were times, as in any divorce, when you feel like nothing is going to turn out the way you hope, but during those times Lance encouraged me that it would. I can have a strong voice at times and I voiced my frustrations about my ex-husband. But he gave me tough love and even though I sometimes wanted to stay in my own thoughts and head, he made me see long term benefits and goals. Reminding me of the law and steering me away from my emotional attachments to events that were occurring. For that, I am grateful. He is punctual, articulate and very intelligent. He is also excellent with calculations and numbers. He is very skilled at explaining legal issues in layman's terms. Whenever I was feeling doubtful or second-guessed how much longer I should fight, I kept going knowing that I had an excellent lawyer fighting right along with me. Thank you for all of your hard work and tireless commitment to my case. Class act all the way.

  • Since that time, I have used Lance for an array of family court matters, each time more satisfied with his quality level of service.

    In 2012, my ex-husband and I started the divorce process. Having hired a different law firm, my divorce was the most tumultuous, scary and completely hopeless years of my life. Just another number in the Supreme Court system and treated the same by my big, well-known law firm. When my bill got upwards of $200K, enough was enough and I got rid of them.
    Then I met Mr. Simon. I had been having a problem with my ex-husband, who had moved out of state, threatening he would not be sending my daughter back home. I immediately starting calling any and all attorneys that would hear me as soon as possible and Lance was the only one who offered to meet me that evening near my home. When sitting for that first consult with Lance, I immediately knew this was someone I needed to have by my side. He is so knowledgable, confident, and well-spoken but more than all those things that are great, I felt like I had a friend in my corner fighting for me. Since that time, I have used Lance for an array of family court matters, each time more satisfied with his quality level of service. He is reasonable when I am not, he is calm when I am a mess, he is confident when I am a ball of nerves. This is undoubtedly the man you need by your side. I not only would recommend Lance to anyone that comes across this review but I have recommended him to friends as well, which says a lot about the man he is. Good Luck in the process.

  • He is available to answer any questions or concerns you may have during the process. Sometimes at the most random early hours of the mornings.
    Hiring Lance Simon was the BEST decision I could have made, I was in a tunnel and couldn’t see no end in sight with my divorce. After hiring two previous Lawyers to handle my case and getting nowhere in over 1 year, I decided to give Lance a shot. I called Lance and he made an appointment to see me the next day. I told Lance about what was going on with my case and how the previous attorneys pretty much did nothing but try and negotiate with the EX which went nowhere. I explained to Lance my frustration, he was compassionate and genuine, but above all, he was extremely knowledgeable and this was paramount to me. Lance explained to me the direction he would take with my case, After retaining Lance, we were in court within two weeks. Lance was able to establish Child Support, something that the other attorneys failed to do in over 1 year of negotiations. The following months Lance worked tirelessly to get the EX out of my House and got it sold, he was able to establish reasonable parenting time and was able to get me a separate property claims on the sale of the marital residence something the EX fought tooth and nail against. In the end the only regret I have is not hiring Lance from day one. Lance returns phone calls, he response to emails, he gets back to you via text, he is not an attorney that after you hire him, he disappears. He is available to answer any questions or concerns you may have during the process. Sometimes at the most random early hours of the mornings, it’s not uncommon to have an email from Lance at 2am in the morning. That just shows you how dedicated he is to his clients. Lance is simply the Best hands down, he is not an attorney who is going to nickel and dime you, he is fair, honest and genuine. If you are going through a divorce look no further than Lance Simon to represent you.

  • He was in constant communication with me and I could reach him at any time. He was always there whenever I needed him.
    After 10 years of being in and out of the Supreme Court and the family court with my ex-husband, I was beginning to think that the legal system was corrupt. My children and I spent many years being abused, harassed, bullied & tormented. I had gone through several lawyers prior to obtaining Mr. Lance Simon and I wish I found him sooner. Had I have found him sooner, I never would've spent all of those many countless years in court. With Mr. Simon taking over my case, he did more in days than any attorney had done in years. He immediately handled every situation & within no time at all issues were finally getting resolved. He stopped the harassment and the torment that no one else was ever able to stop. No other attorney has ever shown as much effort or interest in stopping my ex from his torment. Upon hiring Mr. Simon, I felt immediate peace & comfort in knowing that I finally had a lawyer who would end the nightmare I was enduring. I finally had the most incredible advocate at my side, my voice was finally being heard, victory was finally in sight. Not only is he the most professional attorney, he is the most caring compassionate human being that I have ever met. His commitment and dedication to his cases are remarkable. He is highly knowledgeable, skilled & intelligent. Although compassionate with his clients, he is fierce upon his opponent & gets the job done resolving every conflict & situation with perfection. He outshines all other attorneys. He took my case on a personal level and truly cared which most attorneys don't. He was in constant communication with me and I could reach him at any time. During the trial we spoke on the phone several times each day. He was always there whenever I needed him. Not only was he there to answer my questions but his paralegals were also there and they were always extremely pleasant & helpful. He has a great team at his office. It was rare that I needed to reach out to his paralegals because he always made himself available for me. They all worked very hard to keep me at ease. I highly recommend Lance Simon to anyone seeking a divorce or dealing with custody/matrimonial issues. You'll be hiring the best lawyer out there. Don't waste your time on the others. I was truly blessed finding Mr. Lance Simon & am truly grateful.

  • He cared about me, asked about my goals and learned about my family dynamics -- then he advocated tirelessly for me.

    Lance brought a warm, personalized approach to my divorce matter. He cared about me, asked about my goals and learned about my family dynamics -- then he advocated tirelessly for me. In the preliminary stages of my case, Lance filed a motion to compel my husband to pay his portion of the mortgage. Lance's motion was successful in this regard, which resulted in me being able to provide for my family and save my home.

  • I can't even explain how you lifted my anxiety and made it go away. Lance kicked ass in court!!!!!

    I just got divorced this year 2016, and was scared, nervous even anxious. Not because of the divorce, but the thought of an attorney charging me money I don't even have to get divorce. I explained to Lance my financial situation and instead of him telling me to seek help elsewhere he took me on and worked out payments with me. What a stress relief that was and Lance if you reading this, I can't even explain how you lifted my anxiety and made it go away. Thank you for understanding that we are all not made of money and willing to work with people that really need your help. Lance kicked ass in court!!!!! (Sorry Lance I know it's not proper, but I got my life back!!!) And I thank you for that!!!

  • He has explained everything he is doing and why he is doing it. I have complete confidence that he has only my best interests in mind.

    Lance has shown dedication and has handled my divorce as if it were he who getting divorced. He has explained all the ways in which he can protect me monetary wise and in business. He has explained everything he is doing and why he is doing it. I have complete confidence that he has only my best interests in mind. Lance had gone far & beyond his lawyer responsibilities for me. I was involved in a court case where the judge wanted to incarcerate that very day. Lance traveled over 49 minutes to represent me in court along with my criminal attorney. He also reached out to a program relentlessly that day to get me a favorable letter to present to the judge. I sincerely can say that without Lance extending his skills and services at the time that he did, I would be in jail right now, and not writing this well-deserved review

  • Now I have joint custody and I see my child more than the typical every other weekend that the judicial system gives. I can express my gratitude and thanks enough to Lance for all that he has done.

    What can I say. Lance helped me through my divorce and custody case. He is an attorney who cares for what is right. He walked me through every step and ensured I understood the whole process. His unwavering commitment to get the job done. Now I have joint custody and I see my child more than the typical every other weekend that the judicial system gives. I can express my gratitude and thanks enough to Lance for all that he has done. I could go through the process with out his caring attitude. I highly recommend Lance for the right attorney for your needs.

  • Lance cared sincerely about not only the legal merits of my case but also the human and ethical merits and impact on my life, and I felt that he was in the trenches with me through a difficult life process.

    Lance represented me in a difficult divorce process over two years through settlement, and then another two years through post-settlement litigation when terms of the settlement were breached by my ex. I asked Lance to stay on my case throughout that 4-year process, during which time my ex fired her attorney three times. Lance cared sincerely about not only the legal merits of my case but also the human and ethical merits and impact on my life, and I felt that he was in the trenches with me through a difficult life process. When I originally needed to choose an attorney I interviewed a few others from traditional NYC firms, and of those Lance was the only one who I felt would work with me at a human level to really solve the problems that I needed help with, and that’s the relationship we had throughout. In the end, the court ruled in my favor on nearly all asks regarding breaches by my ex, including attorney fees and control to sell properties that had been previously frozen from the sale.

  • You won't be disappointed. His professionalism, respect, and intelligence are three of his best qualities.

    I had a discrimination suit, and Lance represented me. He was top notch. He took the case on, fought for me, cared about me, worried for the outcome, and refused to settle on anything that wasn't what was fairly due. I am 100% confident that if I had chosen a different attorney, the outcome would not have been as successful as it was with Lance. If you are contemplating a discrimination lawsuit, consult with Lance Simon. You won't be disappointed. His professionalism, respect, and intelligence are three of his best qualities.

  • He always discussed and explained everything to me and always asked how my son was doing because he truly cared about his well being through this process.
    I found Lance searching for a new attorney online and there was something about him that simply stood out. I have had previous attorneys however, I always felt I was just another case and when I needed advice they were never reachable. I had contact with them at the consult and at court. So Very different with Lance. From initially speaking with him I knew this was more than just "a job" to him and I was more than just "a client." He was compassionate, experienced, knowledgeable, and confident. Due to the necessity of entering a petition quickly, he met me on a weekend to get additional information about my case. Due to the nature of my case, I was always nervous about going to court and even felt a little unsafe in the beginning. Lance would always text me the evening before court and make sure I was doing okay and offered words of encouragement and reassurance that he would walk in with me and it would be fine. I have never had an attorney text me in the evening to offer support and it was such a relief knowing he cared so much. As per my case itself, everything that was discussed during our initial consultation happened as such every step of the way. I felt there were no surprises because Lance was always well prepared and extremely reliable. He always discussed and explained everything to me and always asked how my son was doing because he truly cared about his well being through this process. At the completion of my case, I was speechless when Lance texted me that same evening to ensure my son and I were feeling good because it just confirmed my feelings all along that he truly cares about the safety and well being of us both. Honestly, there is not enough I can say or words to describe what an amazing and compassionate attorney Lance is and how thankful I am to have found him!

  • He was more worried about me getting to see my son than anything else, he made me feel that it was the #1 priority.

    I was in a situation, where I had talked to over 50 lawyers who all said “give me thousands of dollars right now or I’m not discussing anything with you” Lance was the only 1 that was different, he was more worried about me getting to see my son than anything else, he made me feel that it was the #1 priority, I would and will highly recommend him to anyone, in a time where lawyers have a bad reputation, he is a credit to his profession and gives hope that some lawyers actually are more interested in helping people than getting paid, if I could I would give him a ten star rating.
