Mr. Shepard has successfully prosecuted cases in state and federal court, and in private arbitration and mediation, to recovery of over $25 million for his clients in actions for personal injury (including complex orthopedic, neurological and brain injury cases), premises and products liability, wrongful termination and harassment, and wage and hour violations. Notable successful cases include representation of a nurse who was harassed and fired after complaining about patient safety issues, a gay boat-captain fired by a prominent sports event, a public school director who was retaliated against after blowing the whistle about misappropriation of public funds, as well as substantial injury cases against public and private entities and insurance companies.

Gary Klausner at the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, and published his 2005 article Understanding Lawrence v. Texas after Fifty Years of Brown v.

Mr. Shepard graduated with highest honors from UC Berkeley in 1997, earning the Departmental Citation for most outstanding undergraduate accomplishment in pursuit of his B.A. in Sociology.
