JHQ Co-Founder Story

Justice HQ founders, Robert Simon, Brad Simon, and Teresa DiepAfter ten years of growing the Simon Law Group, a successful personal injury practice, Robert and Brad Simon, along with their Director of Marketing, Teresa Diep, realized the legal industry was in desperate need of a change.

Robert Simon, beyond being a top-notch trial attorney, is incredibly passionate about the education and mentorship of a new breed of lawyer. Always focusing on combined efforts and pushing community over competition, Robert has made a name for himself as being the go-to attorney to ask for personal and professional advice – from law students to seasoned attorneys.

As Robert honed his skills as a trial attorney, Brad Simon focused his energy on quickly growing and scaling the firm. This is largely in part due to his dedication to understanding the newest in the legal-tech world. For Brad, you have to be unafraid of using the tools available to you. Brad has always been ahead of the curve and has perfected the business-side of running a successful law firm.

Also behind the success of that law firm? A person who truly understands marketing and advertising for today’s modern attorney. Teresa Diep was instrumental in the branding of the Simon Law Group and helped show the world what it means to be a part of the Justice Team. Now leading a team of her own via Outlier Creative Agency, Teresa continues to break barriers and reshape the public perception of what being an attorney is all about.

Together – Robert Simon, Brad Simon, and Teresa Diep laid the groundwork for Justice HQ.
