  • Jeremy Brandon Shephard

    David is a well-established attorney that has been a staple in the West Michigan bankruptcy scene for the past few decades. During that time, David has been able to help thousands of people through the bankruptcy process. Additionally, David has shown leadership within the bankruptcy community through sharing his expertise at seminars, being involved in organizations to help bankruptcy causes and acting as a mentor to many attorneys. I have had the pleasure of being one of those mentored attorneys and working within his firm. I highly recommend him.
