About Simpson Legal Group, LLC

The path that starts with walking down the aisle and getting a marriage license can sometimes end with a walk up the steps of a courthouse and the filing of divorce papers.


The end of a marriage can be an unexpected and unwelcome detour that throws your hopes, dreams and best laid plans off course. It is a scary and unsettling time, and the choices you make and actions you take will impact the direction of your life — and those of your children — for a very long time.

Fortunately, it is not a journey you need to take alone. You deserve an ally and advisor who will listen to you, who appreciates the emotional, practical and financial challenges you face, and who will be by your side every step of the way.

Shannon Simpson

For over 24 years, I have been helping women and men in and around Council Bluffs navigate the divorce process, providing compassionate counsel and powerful advocacy during a difficult time. I founded Simpson Legal Group, LLC because I firmly believe that any individual going through a divorce should have access not just to effective legal representation, but also to a lawyer who will take the time to get to know them as a person, not just a file.

I provide comprehensive representation for every aspect of divorce and related family law matters. Whether your marriage lasted months or endured for decades, whether you have a high net worth or a more modest portfolio of assets, and whether you have children or not, my commitment never wavers and my passion for your well-being never wanes.

As a lawyer and as your neighbor in Council Bluffs, I stand ready to be your partner on this journey. Together, we will get you and your children on the road to a bright and secure future.

Jailey Simpson

The individuals I work with are more than just a client file. They are men and women going through some of the most difficult times in their lives, and I am prepared to form a trusting relationship with each and every person I counsel. During an emotionally driven time in my clients’ lives, I am happy to walk alongside of them by being a voice of logic and reason. No one should be forced to take the path of divorce alone or enter a custody battle without a thorough understanding of the best options for themselves and their children. I am committed to ensuring my clients are deeply involved in the progression of their case, and fully understand the legal outcomes of each decision they make.

I work closely with opposing counsel to reach resolutions in my clients’ cases. In the event that resolution attempts are unsuccessful, I am prepared to be a strong advocate at trial. It is important to remember this difficult season will not last a lifetime. Do not take this path alone, let us guide you.
