Attorney Profile

For more than 26 years, Steven C. Simon has built a strong reputation in the area of personal injury litigation, wrongful death cases, insurance disputes, and social security disability claims. His success is not by chance. At the beginning of his legal career, Mr. Simon routinely represented insurance companies in an attempt to defeat personal injury and professional malpractice claims. This experience exposed Mr. Simon to various strategies used by insurance companies to deny claims which has proven to be invaluable when representing injured individuals. Since 2001, Mr. Simon has exclusively represented individuals and their families who have been injured and who have suffered losses due to the negligence of others. Mr. Simon is not only committed to providing the most professional legal services to each of his clients, but also develops a personal relationship by committing to meet and communicate with each client on a regular basis so that the most advantageous strategy can be developed for each case. He views his practice as providing personalized services one would find in a smaller law firm, but with the benefits of being part of a large firm with financial resources and professional and supportive staff. “My goal is to always provide uncompromising and aggressive representation so that our clients receive full compensation for their injuries. I understand that, large or small, each claim deserves the highest quality representation. It’s their life that I am entrusted with and I take that responsibility very seriously,” Mr. Simon stated. Mr. Simon is a fourth generation Florida native, having spent most of his life in Palm Beach County, where his family moved in the early 1900s. In 2006, Mr. Simon moved to the Treasure Coast where he undertook the responsibility of managing the firm’s Port St. Lucie office. Mr. Simon, his wife and their three teenagers have embraced the Treasure Coast by volunteering through various agencies and serving those in need. Over the years, Mr. Simon has been a frequent guest on a local Hispanic radio show, which has proved beneficial to his efforts of serving all people, especially the Hispanic community. He serves a board member of CASTLE, an organization dedicated to child abuse prevention Florida. Mr. Simon also spends his time with the United Way of Martin County in Stuart as a member of Leaders United. Additionally, by residing on the Treasure Coast, he has developed a network of medical and rehabilitation professionals and experts, which provides a benefit to his clients. Mr. Simon is proud of earning Martindale-Hubbell’s highest rating, AV Preeminent®, for legal ethics and ability. The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings system is based on the confidential opinions of other lawyers and judges. Additionally, Mr. Simon is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is limited to trial lawyers who have demonstrated exceptional skill, experience, and excellence in advocacy in obtaining a recovery of one million dollars or more.  Finally, Mr. Simon has been selected for membership into The National Trial Lawyers organization and was invited to join its Top 100 Trial Lawyers. Membership to this invitation-only organization is highly selective.
