The Attorney

Richard L. Sheppard III

Mr. Sheppard has been practicing personal injury and social security law since 2005. Even before that, he worked at a personal injury firm while in law school. Upon passing the bar exam he worked for a small firm handling personal injury cases. Later he joined a large personal injury firm and handled personal injury and social security cases throughout Northern California. After acquiring substantial litigation and trial experience, he opened his own office in 2013. 

At that time in addition to personal injury and social security disability, he added bankruptcy and contract disputes to his practice. However, he soon discovered that he could not provide the top rate service his clients deserved while juggling so many practice areas. Now, Mr. Sheppard devotes his entire practice to individuals who have been injured.


Mr. Sheppard is married with four children. His passions are fishing and spending time with the family, often done together. In addition, he spends an inordinate amount of time reading and is seldom seen without his Kindle!
