Guiding individuals through sensitive family situations

Tennessee has one of the highest divorce rates in the nation. And, dealing with any legal issues involving close family relationships requires a Maryville family law attorney with exceptional compassion and skill.

Allow us to guide you through the legal process for family law matters like:

  • Adoptions
  • Agency and DCS adoptions
  • Independent and private adoptions
  • International adoptions
  • Step-parent and relative adoptions
  • Grandparent rights
  • DCS removals

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, the attorneys at Shepherd & Long, P.C. stand by your side.

Tennessee estate planning to secure the future of your loved ones

Whether it is a large amount of assets, or a few treasured family heirlooms, everyone has a legacy. For some of our clients, a simple will may be enough for estate planning, but most couples require a little more planning. Every person’s and every family’s estate plan is unique, just like every family is unique. Talk to us about probate, power of attorney, and wills and trusts.

Why do I need an attorney for my East Tennessee 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, social media, and text messages. And child custody law no longer automatically favors mothers when determining the best interests of the children.

We make the effort to stay current on the latest case law and statutory amendments that affect the legal cases of our clients. One small change in legislation can make a huge change in your case. And Attorney Shepherd shares this knowledge in the courses he teaches to the public and the legal community.
