About Shannon

Learn Shannon’s areas of practice.

Practicing Primarily in the Area of Family Law 


The founder of Simpson Legal Group, LLC in Council Bluffs, Shannon Simpson, understands that the issues involved in divorce and family law aren’t simply legal matters; they are life matters. The deterioration of a marriage, the end of best laid plans and the disruption of lives can unleash a flurry of intense emotions and a parade of overwhelming challenges that don’t necessarily appear in court filings.
Every person going through the divorce process has their own unique questions and concerns and their own story to tell. Shannon listens to those stories, developing personal relationships with each client based on trust, respect and compassion.
Shannon’s deep experience in every aspect of family law, including the most complex custody, property division and asset valuation matters, is complemented by a natural sense of empathy. Clients can trust her straightforward, clear-eyed guidance and feel that they are being taken care of, whether in the courtroom, at the negotiating table or over a cup of coffee. They know that Shannon will be there when and where they need her.
"Don’t take this path alone, let us guide you.” ™

Best of the Best!!!
The team of Shannon Simpson and Bev Driver came highly recommended from a close friend of mine. I feel that I had the best of the best in my corner and it was proven to me going through this process. They truly have your best interest at heart and you are not viewed as another number that walked through the doors. Through the process of my divorce, I lost my mom as well. They were in my corner as well helping me along the way. I would consider Shannon Simpson and Bev Driver the most sincere, and honest people that I have met today. They have the ability to help you see the forest through the trees, keeping you focused on what lies ahead. I truly feel that I was blessed by having this team in my corner while going through this process. They became part of my family through this process in helping me in many different ways. If you are looking for the "best of the best" then look no further. This is a firm that I would highly recommend to anyone that is willing to give 100%, as you will see in the end they will do the same. Some helpful advice: Remember Rome wasn't built over night, and your divorce proceedings won't be either. I learned to have a lot more patience and let them do the job they were hired to do.
