We love to hear our client’s feedback! Have you worked with GPS Law? Let us know!


Kathy Helm, paralegal at GPS Law Group, has been one of the most helpful and empathetic individuals I have ever met. I randomly called GPS Law Group and through some almost miracle was connected to Kathy. I was extremely distraught over issues with another law office, and she patiently listened to me and actually saw me that day. She restored my faith in attorney offices, and I believe she sets the bar for paralegals. GPS is fortunate to have such a talented and caring paralegal as Kathy. Thank you for being such an exemplary and professional paralegal, Kathy Helm.

My wife and I have just completed close on ‘as is’ sale of our home in Cotswold. Builders are anxious to obtain the best parcels, and sellers want fair value for their older homes in this beautiful area. By using the services of GPS Law Group, we received excellent support during the process and through the closing. Unless we had someone to represent us, the process and stress would have overwhelmed me and my wife. GPS Law Group was very professional, and our paralegal sure knew her stuff! If you are working on an offer to sell, my wife & I recommend GPS Law Group to help you navigate the process and take you to close!

Kathy and everyone at GPS Law Group are the uttermost professional, personable and accurate team of lawyers I have ever worked with! Immediately upon talking with Kathy, she was able to take over my closing for sale by owner, and she assured me every step of the way. All my questions and requests were handled immediately and promptly. If you are looking for a real estate firm, don’t hesitate to call Kathy! I will definitely be using this firm on the purchase of my next home! Thank you so much, Kathy and GPS Law Group!

I want to tell you that it is a pure pleasure to have worked with Kathy and the GPS Law Group attorneys on the last 3 closings. You have made the process actually fun and stress-free. It is a blessing to have someone who makes the process easy and without so much going back and forth. You have worked with me, and the process has gone smoothly and fast. WOW! If there was 10 stars in this review, you would get them from me.

I trusted and have brought matters to GPS Law Group, formerly Douglas and Simmons, going back at least 10 years. Eric has handled everything from a minor last name change to HOA dispute and fair settlement. I have GPS Law Group in my contacts and would advise others to do so as well. Attorneys are like mechanics; when you find one you can trust and who is fair, keep them!

He listened and then put me in touch with Kathy Helms who grabbed the reins and ran with it, and the rest is history!!!! I highly recommend them for their professionalism and compassion. They helped me out and did everything they said they would do!!!!! Communication with them was second to none. I highly recommend them. Thanks so much for your help.

Both Denise Romero and Attorney Douglas Simmons went above and beyond in my case. They were knowledgeable, helpful and provided high-quality customer service. All my questions were answered, and it was as smooth a process as a court proceeding can be. We were able to go in fully prepared due to both of their diligent work, and the outcome was in my favor. I highly recommend GPS Law Group and both Denise Romero and Attorney Douglas Simmons.

I really don’t even know where to begin. Quality service from the very beginning. Kathy was always attentive to my needs and was a calming soul when I needed someone to hear my venting. Mr. Simmons and his team did an outstanding job in perseverance, dedication, customer service and a resolution to my issue. Kathy responded to all my inquiries promptly and with incredible attention to detail. Thank you guys for everything that you did for myself and my family. Rest assured that your names will be highly recommended to all my friends and family. Thank you so much for everything.

GPS Law Group is fantastic. They helped me close a very complicated real estate deal and gave hope to a legal situation that other law firms declared hopeless. Because of GPS Law Group, abusive people will be held accountable. Doug Simmons and GPS Law Group are all the legal help you need.

- M. Ruff

Attorney Simmons is the best attorney to work with! I highly recommend him to anyone who seeks strong legal representations! He represented me for a court case with my landlord and also helped me get compensated for my car damage from an insurance company of someone who hit my car. Attorney Simmons was super strong on both cases and got me the result I wanted and MORE! He is also a great gentleman to work with who shows empathy to people in need of help, which does not show from most attorneys I have met. Give him a call, and you will be happy you did!

- Zhengzheng W.

Mr. Simmons represented a family member in a traffic violation. His office was prompt, professional, and courteous, and we were pleased with the outcome. Wonderful practice!!!!

- Jeremy A.

Very professional law office. Prompt response. Attorney Simmons and his paralegal are phenomenal. Attorney Simmons is very thorough and communicated procedures and law processes well. If you have a question and he doesn’t know it right away, he does his research and returns with a prompt response. With over 30 years of experience in law, it doesn’t stop him from continuing education and seminars. As it shows in the courtroom, he knows his stuff.
