About Lyons & Simmons, LLP
The Lyons & Simmons, LLP story began when Trial Lawyers Michael Lyons and Chris Simmons joined together intending to start a law firm that truly cares about its clients. Since our formation, Lyons & Simmons has handled some of the most important and complex cases in the country while securing record-setting results. For example, just in recent history, the firm obtained the largest verdict in a personal injury case in the history of Midland County, Texas, and has secured the largest settlement in a wrongful death case in the history of the state of Oklahoma for a single adult wrongful death claimant. Our results on behalf of a former Power 5 head football coach in a high profile breach of contract case earned the firm a place among the finalists for the National Law Journal's Elite Trial Lawyers Awards.
Our work has earned multiple statewide and national recognitions, including Super Lawyers, the Million Dollar, and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forums, The Best Lawyers in America, America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators, D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas, Best Personal Injury Firm by Texas Lawyer, the John Howie Award from the Dallas Trial Lawyers Association, Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers, the National Law Journal Plaintiffs’ Lawyers Trailblazers and as one of the "Best Law Firms" by US News & World Report.

Fight For Justice Leads to Record Verdict
They were cautioned that they were taking an “unwinnable” case. Thankfully for their client, a grieving mother, the trial attorneys of Lyons & Simmons are at their best when the result means everything.
Pushing to comply with his company’s inclement weather policy, an energy services company employee sped down a West Texas highway early on a rainy morning. Losing control on the slick road, his truck slammed into a car carrying three minor children, all of whom died.
Looking at the policy, which required attendance at a job site to be paid during inclement weather, Michael Lyons and Chris Simmons knew that the driver’s employer must also shoulder responsibility for the accident.
But justice wouldn’t come easy. Not only was the trial team facing off against an oil field construction company in a case tried in the heart of the West Texas energy industry, but the team also found that crucial evidence had been destroyed. It took a court-ordered forensic examination to fully reveal pertinent documents.
When Lyons & Simmons laid out the facts the jury agreed on responsibility, returning an award of $5.8 million, believed to be the largest-ever personal injury verdict in Midland County, one of the state’s most conservative venues.
