Joseph B Simons
Since Attorney Joseph Simons founded the firm in 2012, he has amassed a string of incredible wins. Attorney Simons believes in focusing on one practice area and doing it well. For him, it’s criminal defense. Joe has never been a prosecutor. He attributes his success to creative thinking, long hours, and smart collaborations with his team.
Attorney Simons enjoys the intellectual challenges that come with handling difficult and complex cases. The best part of the job is winning a case that other lawyers have deemed impossible; he compares his craft to that of a surgeon, as his clients have so much at stake. His clients are mother and fathers, teachers and doctors, teenagers and CEOs. They come from all walks of life.
Within the first five years of his practice, Attorney Simons had already been to over 70 courts in Massachusetts. Based in downtown Boston, Attorney Simons has successfully represented clients across the state. His hard work as a Boston criminal defense lawyer has achieved acquittals and dismissals on serious felony charges, including Armed Home Invasion, Drug Distribution, Rape, Forgery, Embezzlement, and Possession of a Firearm without FID Card.
Attorney Simons has been recognized by his peers, earning a 10 out of 10 rating on avvo.com, being named a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers, and a “Top 100 Trial Lawyer” by The National Trial Lawyers.
Sara Attarchi represents clients charged with a variety of crimes in Massachusetts. Boston criminal defense attorney Attarchi joined Simons Law Office after passing the bar in 2016. With a Juris Doctor from Suffolk University Law School, Sara amassed a wealth of criminal defense experience even before graduation. She successfully represented clients here in Boston and nearby courts in the Suffolk Defenders Clinic, and during an internship with the Committee for Public Counsel Services.
Attorney Attarchi has experience litigating against drug charges, larceny, and violent crimes. She was tapped to assist the Drug Task Force team, helping clients who were affected by the Hinton drug lab scandal. Starting off with a big win, she won an acquittal on her first jury trial alongside Attorney Simons - an animal cruelty case in Worcester District Court. She's been racking up more impressive results ever since.
Attorney William Bentley, of counsel, has successfully represented clients on cases ranging from OUI to Armed Home Invasion. One of the first cases Attorney Bentley and Attorney Simons worked on together was a serious OUI Drugs and OUI Liquor case that looked nearly impossible to win at first blush. After several months of preparation, Attorney Bentley and Attorney Simons tried the case, which included several other charges, at the Boston Municipal Court, winning an acquittal on all criminal charges. Since then, Attorney Bentley has continued to achieve wins on behalf of clients across Massachusetts.
Attorney Bentley graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a B.A in Business Management, and received his law degree from Suffolk University Law School here in Boston. Prior to law school, he worked in finance. When he's not winning cases as a Boston criminal defense lawyer, you can often find him watching or playing sports. In addition to watching his son play soccer or baseball, Attorney Bentley donates his time to youth organizations and coaches baseball for young teens.
