For Jayme Simpson, being a personal injury attorney is not really a profession, but rather, it is her passion. After graduating with a bachelor’s in business management from SDSU, Simpson decided to go straight into law school because she knew from watching her father practice law that she wanted to help hurt individuals the same way he did. When an individual has been injured it can be difficult or overwhelming; Simpson likes to be able to relieve her clients of their worries related to the legal side of the situation and tells her clients that their main focus needs to be getting better.
Simpson is the San Diego regional chairwoman of the Consumer Attorneys of California New Lawyers Division. In her role, Simpson organizes monthly educational meetings where senior attorneys come speak to newer attorneys and provide them with insight on how to advance their skills. Simpson is also the community service chair for The Forum of the San Diego County Bar Association. In this role, Simpson organizes volunteer opportunities for all attorneys of San Diego. Simpson is also an active member of the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego and the American Association for Justice.
Simpson is an outgoing and charismatic individual. Outside of the office, she loves playing soccer, running long distance, hiking and dancing. Spending time laughing with family and friends is her favorite pastime.
