Kevin W. Shepherd, Founder of Shepherd and Associates, P.C.

I started my career as a Public Defender and working in the office of the District Attorney. I have always loved the law, and I got into this line of work because I wanted to help people. The legal system is often complicated, even more so because it’s always changing. Most people can’t keep up, and that’s why they need attorneys like me.

While I loved my previous job, at some point I realized that people need more. My community didn’t just need someone to solve problems and untangle complicated laws and regulations. They needed someone to take an individualized approach, to provide care, and to listen.

So, I started my law firm, Shepherd and Associates, P.C. as a response to those needs. I decided to be the person you want by your side as you face some of the most complex life situations.

Legal issues can be stressful and confusing for most people. It can be dangerous and ultimately more costly to make critical decisions without understanding your rights and the recent changes in law, which is why I am committed to my line of work. I get an opportunity to provide my patrons with care and help them lose that feeling of powerlessness in the face of the intimidating legal system.

Giving Support On Common Legal Issues

I have more than 30 years of legal experience; all of that time in law taught me that focusing on the needs and desires of the people is a better approach. People are more than just cases – they are real humans, with personal problems and complex goals.

This is especially true when it comes to family issues, estate planning, personal injury law, and criminal defense. As you can see, these are my primary focuses. However, they can also be complicated in the sense of the client’s needs and feelings.

That is why my practice is so concerned with building a relationship with clients. We get to know each other, we call each other by our first names, and we create a sense of closeness. We build a rapport in which clients can call me any time with quick questions or concerns.

My clients know me, and they know that they can trust me to handle their case with integrity and expertise. They believe in me and my skills enough to refer me to their friends and relatives, which only confirms the magnitude of what we are doing at Shepherd and Associates, P.C.

Family, Community, And Law Come First

I founded Knoxville law firm, Shepherd and Associates, P.C. because I believe in my skills and knowledge to serve individuals and families. We are a company you can trust, and we will protect you and your future.

Facing legal issues is hard, and you need an experienced attorney by your side. My law firm provides help in various practice areas like:

  • Personal Injury
  • Family law
  • Divorce
  • Adoption
  • Estate planning
  • Criminal defense

Also, many more related areas!
However, my focus is also on my own family and teaching other people. I am an advocate for the rights of families, and I firmly believe in community involvement. This is why I served as the elected county commissioner for eight years.

When I am not helping people with their legal issues, I teach education seminars on current and changing Texas laws, courses on family law topics in the National Business Institute and courses through Tennessee Attorneys Memo on family law.
