William A. Simmons
Licensed Site Professional, J.D.

Attorney William A. Simmons is the former director of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Office of Emergency Response Site Assessment and Remedial Actions. Following his career with the DEP, he founded Simmons Environmental Services, Inc., with his wife, Karen. As a Licensed Site Professional, Simmons worked with clients to conduct complete removal, remediation and site restoration projects. He was one of the first people in Massachusetts to be certified as a licensed site professional (LSP) by the Board of Registration of Hazardous Waste Site Cleanup Professionals.

After working for several years as an environmental professional, Simmons decided to pursue a law degree. He earned his Juris Doctorate from the Massachusetts School of Law in Andover and was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in December 2006. Soon after he founded The Law Office of William A. Simmons, P.C. where he now services all cities and towns in Massachusetts.

Simmons is one of the few, if not the only, attorneys in Massachusetts who is also a licensed site professional. This gives him a unique perspective on legal issues surrounding environmental concerns, commercial real estate and land use. For more information regarding legal services, please visit
