Maryville Personal Injury and Divorce Law Firm

With more than 20 years of experience serving the legal needs of individuals and families in Blount and Knox Counties and the surrounding areas, my law firm focuses on the most urgent needs of Tennessee communities — personal injury and family law.

We are Shepherd and Associates, P.C., and my clients often refer others to my firm because of my dedication to providing individuals and families with personalized, honest support for the issues they most commonly face.

Helping injured people with their legal issues so they can focus on healing

I believe personal injury lawyers in Maryville and throughout the region have a duty to provide more than standard legal support. My clients often are dealing with catastrophic injuries at the same time they are taking legal action to pursue compensation for the medical treatment they need. If you suffer injuries or lose a loved one in an accident caused by the negligent or wrongful acts of others, I take on the details so you can concentrate on healing.

Guiding individuals through sensitive family situations

In its reporting of statistics for 2010, the United States Census Bureau cites Tennessee’s as one of the highest divorce rates in the nation. Dealing with any legal issues involving close family relationships requires a Maryville family law attorney with exceptional compassion. Whether you face a conflict such as the end of your marriage or need help in happy circumstances such as the adoption of a child, I guide you through the legal process so your entire family can focus on the future.

Up-to-date legal knowledge makes a difference to every case

Municipalities frequently change the law to accommodate new issues and attitudes. Personal injury liability situations now sometimes involve technology such as the use of cell phones. And child custody law no longer automatically favors mothers when determining the best interests of the children.

I make the effort to stay current on the latest case law and statutory amendments that affect the legal cases of my clients. I also share this knowledge in the courses I teach to the public and the legal community.
