Smart well trained attorney in the areas of Criminal defense, Intellectual Property, Sports & Entertainment Law  and Federal Criminal & Immigration cases.

My motto is: "have money will travel" I have taken cases all over the state of Michigan  and a few other states as well.  My clients adore my approach and courtroom temperament and successful  outcomes. I am often called a " Hired Gun "  after the old western character Pallidin played by actor Richared Boone " Have Gun Will Travel" sitcom, when other attorneys would not work. I always deliver under pressure when the facts and evidence surrounding your case indicates otherwise.

:"Going to jail is not an option" on Attorney Shepard watch. 

Additionally I have been admitted to practice in the United States Federal District Courts Eastern District of Michigan April of 2008 and the Federal District Courts in the Southern District of Texas to help battle with an overflow of Criminal and Immigration matters burdening the Federal Court systems.
