Ms. Simmons began practicing in the State of Arizona in 2003 after graduating from the James E. Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona.
Her practice emphasizes consumer bankruptcy filings, including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 cases as well as personal injury cases. Ms. Simmons began filing bankruptcy cases for clients in 2005 while running a small firm.
In 2007 she began working for a large national bankruptcy firm and by 2008 she had been promoted to Managing Attorney of the Arizona offices. This position allowed Ms. Simmons to counsel numerous clients with a wide variety of legal issues.
In 2010 Ms. Simmons took a position with a large full-service Arizona firm, working in the bankruptcy department. Ms. Simmons and Elizabeth Kamper co-founded Kamper & Simmons LLP in February of 2012 with one simple goal in mind: to provide personal attention and superior legal service at a reasonable cost to our clients.
