He continues to actively teach and is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the UCLA School of Medicine.

    Dr. Simons has over 25 years of experience as an expert witness, representing both defense and plaintiffs. He is proud of the fact that his meticulous case evaluations often disclose critical information that was not appreciated prior to his review. He is an articulate, highly credible witness and has successfully testified in many high profile cases.

    Dr. Simons is highly experienced at conducting independent medical evaluations. He is an expert in quantitating the degree of impairment resulting from a variety of exposures and injuries; his reports are exemplary. Dr. Simons approaches the patient in a warm, unbiased manner.
