Our Firm

OUR APPROACH
Sim Legal, P.C. takes pride in the fact that we have a proven track record of success not only in providing outstanding legal results but also in customer satisfaction.

A properly conceived estate plan is more than just a series of documents.  It is the by-product of extensive interaction between you and your attorney.  Our responsibility is to listen to your concerns and wishes, to answer your questions, to ask you questions, and, finally, to recommend documents and procedures which will meet your needs.  It is these documents, which have been produced after a careful discussion with you, which form the cornerstone of a successful estate plan.

Our clients are protected to the fullest extent possible under the law from unnecessary court proceedings and needless taxes.   We have extensive experience in providing flexible solutions for a wide range of individuals at all stages of life including the elderly and military.
