What Our Clients Think:

"I've hired several lawyers over the years to handle various cases. I have never been as impressed as I am with Core Law Group. The team at Core Law Group are excellent communicators.  They stayed on top of everything with my case, thoroughly prepped me for the hearing, and got me winning results. I highly recommend them and will continue to use them for future cases."

"Simon and his team did a tremendous job on my case. My wife filed a false accusation to get a restraining order for domestic violence against me. With all the evidence and false accusations, Simon told the court that restraining order should be denied.  I won the case because of his knowledge about the law. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer."

"Simon, Marissa, and the rest of the team did a very nice job with my child custody case. My ex had our daughter living in what I believed were uninhabitable conditions, but she had custody.  I only had weekends.  I worked with Core Law Group for almost 3 months prior to filing my lawsuit to set up a situation in which the court would seriously consider changing custody.  ...  I am so glad I hired them.  They were fabulous in the courthouse, and now my fiancé and I get to spend full weeks with my daughter."

"If you're not a deadbeat parent and are fighting for 50/50 custody, then ask for Brittany at Core Law Group. My ex went through 3 lawyers attempting to limit my visitation rights with my child. Core Law Group got me 50/50 custody and pretty much everything else I asked for. This firm will work with you if you're going through financial difficulties too!! Brittany thank you so much for all your help!! Julie thanks for being flexible with my payments!! You guys are the best!!!"
