Customer Reviews

Ken Simmons is working with us on estate planning. He is wonderful to work with. He invests the time needed to make us feel comfortable and to get us to the right result. He walked us through all of our options in detail and explained the complex laws surrounding estate planning in a way that made sense. He gave us the time and space we needed to make decisions but closely guided us where we needed it. We were impressed with his knowledge and expertise. I would strongly recommend him and his practice for estate planning.

My husband and I met with Attorney Kenneth J SImmons to seek advice in planning for the future of our family of four.

Mr. Simmons was professional, knowledgeable and very informative. He thoroughly explained all of the possible options available to use in terms that we would understand. He patiently reviewed everything with us as he outlined the pros and cons of each and every option. I honestly felt like he truly cared in finding out what was going to be the best option for us.

We were extremely pleased with his knowledge and expertise of estate planning as well as his calm, down to earth demeanor. He was respectful, easy to talk to and always made us feel comfortable. We felt confident with his recommendation and advice on what would be our best option and in our best interest for us and our entire family.

We had a great experience with Attorney Kenneth J Simmons and would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking services for estate planning.

I have used Attorney Simmons when I originally purchased my home, (which was anything but a straight-forward purchase!) and again, for my most recent home mortgage refinance. My family and I have also used Attorney Simmons and his firm, Simmons and Schiavo LLP, for elder estate planning as well as for any rental real estate questions that have arisen.

My experience, EVERY time was so positive that I felt I had to share my feedback. Below are just a few examples of the ways in which Attorney Simmons and his firm have handled our business in an outstanding manner:

• Willingness to research and analyze any out-of-the ordinary situations

• Outstanding attention to detail

• Patience and willingness to explain complicated concepts

• Extremely responsive in communication and follow up

• Complete professionalism in dealings with issues involving external third parties

• Comfortable office atmosphere

• Friendly and helpful office staff

• Provision of all related documents on a CD (love this)

I couldn’t be happier with Attorney Simmons and his firm and have recommended (and will continue to recommend) them to my friends and family.
