Attorney Michael Shepherd

A personal injury lawyer ready to work for you

Michael Shepherd is a shareholder of the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin. He joined the firm in 2010 and handles personal injury cases for our clients.

Michael received his J.D. from North Carolina Central University and a B.A. in Criminal Justice from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Prior to taking a position at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, he worked as a Senior Claims Representative for a major insurance company. This has allowed him to see how personal injury law is practiced from both sides of the table.

"I think having work experience from both sides of the table, so to speak, allows me to look at a case from different viewpoints. This benefits my clients in that I can see obstacles a little farther in advance and advise them accordingly," Michael said.

His professional affiliations include American Bar Association; North Carolina State Bar and the North Carolina Bar Association. He is also past President of the Eastern NC Chapter of the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters. Community service activities include volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, the Durham Literacy Center, and the Literacy Volunteers of America.
