The Host

Bob Simon

Robert T. Simon is co-founder of the Simon Law Group and Justice HQ. Robert grew up in Pittsburgh as being the oldest of 5 (tied!), and the son of a loving UPS truck driver and a nurturing stay-at-home mom. As a kid, his uncle was hit by a drunk driver and lost the use of his legs. Since then, Robert has made it his mission to fight for the injured and less fortunate. He attended George Washington University in Washington D.C. After getting a degree in Criminal Justice, he went to law school at Pepperdine in Malibu California. He has dedicated his entire career to fighting for the injured.

He is a proud member of ABOTACAALACAOCCASD and OCTLA. He has received numerous awards for notable verdicts up and down the coast of California including the 2015 Trial Lawyer of the Year in San Diego; 2014 Los Angeles Top Trial Lawyer under 40; and 2014 Orange County Trial Lawyer of the Year – Young Gun. Most importantly he is the past president and active board member of the Los Angeles Trial Lawyer Charities. Robert spends a lot of time giving back to the community and helping teach other trial lawyers the craft of fighting for those in need. He is the key note speaker in several seminars every year and is frequently published in various trial lawyer magazines. Since 2012 Robert has tried over 30 cases to verdict as lead, winning them all, and verdicts totaling over 100M. He does many cases for free, because believes in the cause, and donates a portion of his fees back to those consumer oriented charities that support a safer America.
