Our Firm

The origin of the Simmons Olsen Law Firm dates back to the early 1900’s, as a result of several successful mergers of Scottsbluff firms. We continue to grow, and are currently the largest full-service law firm in greater Nebraska. We proudly serve Western Nebraska and Eastern Wyoming both at our main location in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, as well as our satellite office in Alliance, Nebraska.

Our clients receive exceptional service, practical solutions, and reasonable results. We pride ourselves in providing the same level of expertise that could be found at any metropolitan law firm, while always maintaining the personal service that is expected in a small community. Our team consists of thirteen attorneys and eleven support staff. Together, we provide clear guidance for every stage of your legal matter. Each of our attorneys has a unique skill set and expertise, which allows us to handle a diverse array of legal matters. Our clients receive the benefits of a team approach and varied legal minds, all working side-by-side. Through accurately assessing clients needs and responding accordingly, clients receive the most efficient and effective service available. Clients are always in capable, qualified hands, as each case is directed towards the most qualified attorney on the issue.

Our transactional attorneys go the extra mile when it comes to overseeing business transactions, advising business entities, providing estate planning and probate services, negotiating real estate matters, and offering litigation support. We are proud to serve our many institutional clients, including banks, and a large number of cities and villages in Western Nebraska.

Our family law attorneys can sensitively yet passionately serve clients in all domestic matters. From adoptions and guardianship to divorce and custody cases, clients and their families are guided through incredibly emotional and difficult times.

Our litigators excel at assisting clients in arriving at prompt and effective resolutions. We serve a number of businesses and insurance companies. Our expertise includes auto accidents, railroad law, products liability, school law issues, medical liability, and other cases of personal injury and property damage. We handle business litigation for our clients. We attempt to resolve cases for our clients in a timely and efficient basis, yet when other means of resolution have been exhausted, we do not hesitate to advocate for our clients in court.

Our firm is invested in people. Our members are involved in numerous community organizations, each of which represent our individual passions. We provide countless volunteer hours each year to enrich the communities in which we serve.
