Michael Lyons and Christopher Simmons Featured as “Big Case Warriors” in 2020 Best Lawyers Magazine

Lyons & Simmons co-founders Michael Lyons and Christopher Simmons are profiled in the 2020 issue of Texas’ Best Lawyers magazine discussing their relentless dedication to pursuing justice for clients while also helping to invoke meaningful change.

The article, “Big Case Warriors”, was included in the magazine which was distributed as a special supplement to the June 19 print edition of the Wall Street Journal. The article, which can also be found online at here, takes a look at the firm’s work in cases involving the deadliest oil field incident since the 2010 Macondo Deepwater Horizon blowout, the sexual assault of a woman in her own home by a cable installer, and a breach of contract lawsuit against the University of Kansas.

“Most of our cases are David vs. Goliath stories. It is usually us against some giant institution represented by a team of big-firm lawyers whose strategy is to outspend and outflank you. I just say, ‘Bring it on,’” said Lyons.

“It is gratifying to provide the victims and their loved ones with the promise that change will occur so this doesn’t happen to other families,” he said. “I’ve been told the civil justice system is about compensating the victims of civil wrongs. While that is true, it ignores the bigger picture. When used properly, the civil justice system will also serve to police corporate activity. That creates a responsibility for a trial lawyer.”

Simmons adds, “It’s why we do what we do, to inspire change where it would otherwise never occur.”

    Lyons & Simmons quickly became the glue that held our family together.
