Honoring Ernest G. Simon


While Ernest Simon may no longer be able to practice law with us here at the Simon and Schmidt, PA office we will continue to practice in his vision for our office.


Ernie was born in a house in downtown Delray in 1925 and was a lifetime resident. He started his law practice in Delray beach in 1967 and was a municipal judge from 1967-1977 for the city of Delray Beach. He had a strong love for Delray Beach and its residents and he was a member of and/or on the Boards of many local organizations. We strive to honor his memory by continuing his practice which he founded by treating our clients with the same warmth and respect that Ernie so easily gave.
