Dan D. Simmonds is native central Texan who has been around the law his entire life. While growing up in Temple, Texas, Mr. Simmonds spent much of his time around his grandfather, Jim D. Bowmer, who served as the 34th Texas State Bar President in 1972 and who has been credited for starting the State Bar College, which was established by The Texas Supreme Court in December 1981. It was this influence that instilled a core desire of wanting to serve others and allow all a fair opportunity to judicial access.
After obtaining his business degree from Sam Houston State University in 1994, Mr. Simmonds attended South Texas College of Law in Houston, Texas. During his legal studies, Mr. Simmonds had the opportunity to clerk for Wayne Fisher, one of the most recognized and decorated litigators in the United States. While there, Mr. Simmonds learned critical skills to accomplish complex legal research and extensive litigation strategies while providing the best service and availability for clients.
During his law practice, Mr. Simmonds has successfully handled cases with concentrations in bad faith insurance, personal injury, premises liability, wrongful death, consumer protection, and complex business disputes. He has represented individual clients as well as billion-dollar companies providing both prosecutorial and defense services. Mr. Simmonds has recovered millions for his clients over his litigation experience.
Mr. Simmonds is married with four kids and enjoys spending time with his family, playing guitar, and firing up the bbq pit before a big football or baseball game.
