Kevin W. Shepherd
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.

My legal career started in Richmond, Virginia back in 2007 when I worked as a family law attorney. I continued my focus on family law when I moved to Tennessee in 2009 and furthered my practice when I joined the Shepherd & Long, PC team in 2017.

Offering A Wide Range Of Legal Services
We can help you in the following areas:
Divorce is one of the more challenging areas to deal with because it’s not just a job when a family is involved. We understand all the emotional aspects that come with this trying time, whether contested or uncontested. We aim for sensible solutions that benefit the entire family, addressing the legal and emotional needs of our clients.
After many years of being a successful divorce attorney, I know that family comes first and that we should always remain focused on reconciliation. Where possible, my team and I will help legally stop the proceedings to instead move forward with a mutual resolution for all parties involved.
We have been acting as a mediator for years and have proven successful in negotiating the terms between two parties countless times, and have worked hard to protect the rights of our clients when mediation isn’t an option.
Children are the most critical aspect of these proceedings, and we make sure that both parents get an equal chance of maintaining a relationship with them by working on mutual agreements.
Our law firm believes that everyone is innocent until proven guilty and should have an equal right to fight for their freedom. So, we are here to help with various criminal issues.
We deal with traffic and speeding violations, DUI convictions and fines to help you reduce the consequences on your driving record. We are also skilled at defending people facing more serious charges like a felony or drug crime.
People who get accused of serious crimes feel abandoned and alone. These claims can have severe consequences for their personal and professional life, including loss of job, or even worse, family. They are also angry and confused, especially if they have been wrongfully accused.
However, we can tell you that you are not alone. In all our years of legal service in this community, we have seen many cases, and we understand you. If you are facing any charges, contact us to get professional help from a dedicated legal team.
We’ll listen, and we will do our best to help you clear your name.
Securing your legacy and hard-earned money is no easy feat. If you want to do it properly and make sure it gets dispersed as you intended, we are here to offer the best estate planning services in Knoxville. We cover everything from power of attorney, to wills and trusts. Also, we will protect you from various issues that can arise during this process.
When you work with us on creating your will, you can rest assured that you will get the best legal counsel for creating a complete and comprehensible last testament that will leave your family members with a good future. You’ll be at peace knowing that there will be no disputes or issues after your passing.
Our legal team will ensure that the probate period goes smoothly as well.
We work with clients on creating trusts for their family members so that you can keep them secured after your death. Our law firm will help with the power of attorney appointment as well as a business succession plan that will allow you to preserve your wealth for generations to come.
You won’t have to worry about the complicated details of this process; we will oversee all aspects and provide legal counsel that will let you make informed decisions on what’s best for your loved ones.
These decisions shouldn’t be neglected. Instead, they should but carefully thought over and discussed with a legal support team.
Injuries happen all the time, but when they occur because of someone else, that’s when your legal team must act. A personal injury is when someone hurts either your body, feelings or mind because of negligence or reckless behavior.
Our law firm will hire the best investigative professionals and work with you to figure out all the details of your injury, gathering the necessary evidence to help you win. Let us handle the legal issues, and you can focus on recovering.
Whether you live in Madisonville, Oak Ridge, Lenoir City or anywhere else in Knox or Blount County, we are here for you.
If you have had a car accident, gotten hurt by a product or anything similar, you should call us, and we can talk about the next steps of going against the entity that caused your injury.
Our experienced team can help you get appropriate financial compensation with effective legal actions.
Are you aware of your rights after sustaining an injury?
An injury may mean that you can’t work anymore. In that case, you can get social security disability benefits. If this has happened to you, our team can make sure that you get what you deserve and that this process runs smoothly for you.
Focus on getting better while we handle your social security disability for you.
The laws concerning family issues related to children are clear in Tennessee. However, we don’t take the cookie-cutter approach and adapt your case to a template. We listen and pay attention to your specific needs and desired outcomes.
This is what makes us different from other attorneys in the area; our legal team is proficient in getting the most essential details and using them to provide you with appropriate advice on legal actions.
We will protect your best interests and rights while supporting you through child custody and support, adoption and other family issues. You can rely on us.
