The Law Offices of
Simon & Simon

Two lawyers dedicating their practice to family law and collective action law suits.

How We Work

Our Approach

Andrew J. Simon and James L. Simon approach every client as unique. Because of this, we evaluate your circumstances thoroughly and tailor our representation to your needs.

We prefer to deal directly with our clients. When you communicate with us by phone or email, you will receive a response from your attorney, not an assistant or a secretary.

The beneficial consequences of this approach is that:

  • We get to know who you are
  • We better understand what you wish to accomplish
  • You get a prompt and knowledgeable response to any questions which you may have
  • We keep our costs lower which translates into cost savings to you

Our Experience

Combined, James and Andrew have over 35 years of experience helping people with their family law matters in Northeast Ohio.

We have helped people protect their assets and have helped people obtain their fair share of their spouse’s assets.

We have helped people with modest assets and people with multi-million dollar assets.

We have helped people win custody of their children and we have helped people fashion parenting plans which protect the best interests of their children.

We have helped people obtain large spousal and child support awards.

We have helped people minimize their spousal and child support obligations.

We have helped people who have their own business or whose spouse has their own business.

How to Proceed

If you have concerns regarding your assets, your children, or issues of spousal support that you are uncertain your spouse will approach fairly, a divorce proceeding may be appropriate as opposed to a mediation or dissolution.

Often it is unclear to individuals who are facing family difficulties whether to pursue a divorce, collaborative divorce, mediation, or dissolution as the first approach to terminating your marriage.

It is critical that you have an attorney on your side who has experience with a variety of common and uncommon divorce problems.

The first step is to call our office to schedule an appointment. At this initial meeting, we will advise you of the pros and cons of the various initial approaches and begin planning the resolution of your case.

Choosing the right attorney can be the difference between an equitable or burdensome marriage termination.
