Practice area
Everyday Orlando aims to level the playing field for the “little guy”. As a Co-Founder of Burns Sheppard Favors, Orlando strives to stand with his clients and provide them with competent representation in all of their legal matters. Orlando was raised in Panama City, Florida, but he has been an Orlando resident since 2008. He graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Upon completing his undergraduate degree, Orlando enrolled at Florida A&M University College of Law. Orlando Graduated from Florida A&M University College of Law with cum laude honors and was admitted to practice law in Florida in September 2015 and in Maryland in 2018.
 
It was in law school that Orlando found his passion. While working at a prominent Personal Injury firm in the Orlando Area, Orlando saw firsthand the negative impact an accident could have on a person’s life. More importantly, he saw how a person’s life was changed for the better when they have compassionate yet diligent representation in their corner. Since that experience, Orlando has vowed to deliver the same type of representation to his clients. Orlando continues his focus in Personal Injury, representing his clients including automobile accidents, slip and trip and falls, dog bites, and wrongful death.
 
In addition to his professional endeavors, Orlando is active in the community. Orlando is a board member of Life Beyond Adversity, a non-profit whose mission is to help urban youth facing socio-economic hardships further their education at institutions of higher learning and equip them with the ability to make better life decisions to affect their daily choices. Orlando is also an active member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and currently serves Paul C. Perkins Bar Association, in two roles, as General Counsel and the Chair of the Law Student Mentorship Committee.

Excellence!
Mr. Favors and his team were great in communicating and advising me on a situation I had going on with my former employment. They listened and guided me in the direction that I needed giving me the correct verbiage needed to state my case with the organization. Their instructions and recommendations were professors and thorough. I am pleased to say I had a pleasant interaction with this first and will definitely recommend them to anyone who needs assistance in the future.

Landlord-tenant dispute
Landlord's attorney used every delay tactic possible and filed every motion possible. Orlando calmly and meticulously handled every detail; we won. Landlord appealed; we won. If you want to win, this is the lawyer to call.

A+++
Orlando Sheppard was the perfect choice for my legal situation. He provided top notch service to me during a very detrimental time of my life. His communication was clear and concise. He was patient even when I didn’t have everything ready. His prices are exceptionally competitive and fair. His quality of work was superb. He did the job and I never once had an issue with his services. I did a lot of research before hiring Orlando and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my decision. Orlando, thank you very much for being professional and thorough throughout the entire ordeal. If I ever need services again, I will surely contact you first.

Excellent legal representation
Attorney Orlando Sheppard is an extremely competent, hardworking, and skillful attorney. Attorney Sheppard recently helped us with a landlord/tenant matter. Attorney Sheppard handled the case with a great deal of professionalism. Due to the time-sensitive nature of the legal matter, Attorney Sheppard handled the case with a degree of care, providing us with a level of comfort at such a stressful time. Give Attorney Sheppard a call if he can be of legal assistance to you.

The Good Sheppard!
Orlando is the real deal! He stepped in and expeditiously negotiated a college apartment debt settlement that I've been dealing with for years. I am most appreciative of his professionalism and the manner in which he kept me apprised of every option available to resolve this quickly and affordably. I will definitely recommend him to anyone needing legal representation.
