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.


Elizabeth Maxey Long


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.
