A sense of justice and equity was instilled in me at an early age as principals that must guide our lives. I was taught that these were not abstract thoughts or things to merely wish for but rather the reason to equip myself to be an advocate in the arena where these principles are determined.

My father, J. Minos Simon, was a trial lawyer for 57 years. He taught me that, as an advocate, the rights of every person, small or large, were more important than the size or stature of those who would oppose those rights.

As a practicing attorney, I am acutely aware that I am, first and foremost, an advocate for the rights and needs of my clients. This awareness makes every case important to me, large or small, and is the guiding principal of my practice.

Our areas of practice are designed to meet the needs of clients who have been hurt, injured or otherwise wronged by individuals or companies. Whether you have suffered a harm resulting from a motor vehicle accident, the negligent or intentional acts of others, premises or product liability, we are seasoned attorneys who will fully promote your claim. 

We also meet the needs of clients who incur financial losses due to the failure or individuals or companies to fulfill their obligations. This includes collection of unpaid bills, recovery from employers and recovery from contract disputes.

Whether for business or personal uses, we are dedicated to provide whatever legal authority or documents our clients may need. These needs may include wills, successions, powers of attorney, company formations or formation of contracts, etc.  Along with the many services provided by our law firm, we also operate Frontier Title Company to satisfy all of the real estate needs of our clients.  For a detailed list of the many services provided by Duncan & Simon, L.L.C., please see our comprehensive list of practice areas below:

Frontier Title Company was established in 2002 to serve the Baton Rouge metro area in real estate transactions. Since that time, Frontier has expanded its services and now conducts real estate closings on a statewide basis.

At Frontier Title, we recognize that, whether a first time homeowner or a sophisticated investor, the people we serve are engaged in a very important and significant event in their lives. Our motto, "Helping Old Friends Reach New Frontiers," means that, in all that we do, we convey to the client our understanding that the real estate transaction being perfected is important to them. Accordingly, we strive to make the entire closing process a relational event that culminates in a successful and smooth closing.

Frontier Title Company has recently taken steps to reach out to the Spanish speaking people of our community. We have recently been joined by an attorney who is fluent in Spanish and who can assist our Spanish-speaking clients in all phases of their real estate transactions. We also provide the resources of a full civil law practice; often essential to the closing process. Simply put, we can be a one-stop-shop in regards to any special needs our clients may have. We are locally owned and locally managed and, at Frontier Title, we believe in building our business one relationship at a time.
