About me

I practice  in the area of Family Law where I have successfully represented families since 2005.  I joined Udall Shumway PLC in 2005.  Prior to becoming a lawyer, I worked as a Paralegal in the family law area for seven years until 2001.   In 2002, I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology.  My degree in psychology has served her well in understanding the emotional difficulties my client’s experience during their family law cases.


I graduated from Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kansas in May 2005.  While attending law school, I was a student editor for the American Bar Association Family Law Quarterly Bar Journal for four editions.  I was President of the Washburn Moot Court Council, and argued at the Dominick L. Gabrielli National Family Law Competition.  I was a legal intern at the Washburn Law Clinic where I successfully represented clients in custody and paternity actions.  Additionally, while in law school, I also clerked for an AV rated law firm in Topeka.


I was raised in Tucson and moved to the East Valley in 1994.  I have gone through my own divorce with children and thus have personal experience with the emotional aspects and practical issues surrounding it.   I effectively and zealously advocates equally for both my male and female clients.

  • Norma C Izzo Milner

    I endorse Ms. Shepard as a wonderful family law attorney. I have learned to expect strong advocacy when working with her on a matter. Yet, she is respectful and works together to problem solve without escalating conflict unnecessarily.
