Attorney Profile

Samantha Shepherd is the firm's founding attorney.  Her practice areas encompass elder law, estate planning, long term care planning and asset protection, Medicaid planning, Missouri Medicaid applications (MOHealthnet) and appeals, probate and trust administration, guardianships and Special Needs Trusts.  

Ms. Shepherd has a strong calling to assist the elderly and individuals with special needs. Initially a corporate lawyer by training, Ms. Shepherd found her desire to serve and to give back to the community drew her to the Elder Law profession. Under the tutelage of Attorney Craig Reaves, the former President of the Missouri Chapter of Elder Law Attorneys and the the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Ms. Shepherd embarked on a rewarding career helping the elderly, those with disabilities and their families.

Ms. Shepherd is a 1994 graduate of Boston College Law School, where she received her juris doctorate.  She received her LLM in Estate Planning from the University of Missouri in Kansas City.  She is licensed to practice in Missouri, Massachusetts, and Maine.  She is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and the Missouri Chapter of NAELA.   

Ms. Shepherd has been appointed as a Vice-Chair of the Elder Law Committee for the Missouri Bar and is also a member of the Missouri Bar's Legislative Review Subcommittee for Elder Law. Ms. Shepherd is an officer on the Board of the Missouri Chapter of NAELA and the 2012 Co-chair of the National Meeting for NAELA. Ms. Shepherd currently serves as a Director on the Board of Directors for Missouri NAELA and is the Chair of the Membership Committee.
