The focus of our attorneys at Simmons Hanly Conroy LLC is to advocate for clients regardless of whether they have been seriously injured in an accident or if their company has fallen victim to unfair business practices. We combine a staff of over 70 lawyers, national resources and outreach, as well as a focus on customer service, to provide our clients with the support and help they need during a difficult time.

Since we opened in 1999, our practice has relied on our attorneys’ diverse and comprehensive experience to tackle even the most complex cases. We have a proven track record of success, and many of our attorneys have received a number of honors.

Our firm has cumulatively secured more than $5 billion in verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients.

Our team at Simmons Hanly Conroy LLC works closely with clients through every step of their case. Litigation is not a quick process. However, our attorneys have the staying power to aggressively represent clients regardless of how long it takes. We stand on a solid foundation of values and give personal attention and respect to every client.

Professional Work Experience

John Simmons and his firm have litigated some of the largest verdicts in the history of asbestos litigation. The firm’s first trial involved asbestos and a former roofer who was diagnosed with mesothelioma and resulted in a $34.1 million verdict. The firm later secured a $250 million verdict in another asbestos case involving an Indiana steelworker who also developed mesothelioma. Additionally, the firm handles litigation in other areas, such as toxic torts, intellectual property, pharmaceuticals and commercial cases.
