As a family law attorney, Koryn Sheppard has a reputation for balancing reasonableness with forcefulness. As an undergraduate, Koryn got her bachelor’s degree in Philosophy. From that, she has over the 11 years she has been practicing Family Law honed the skills to analyze complex issues from several angles to find unique solutions that often resolve the most difficult cases. Koryn Sheppard is a warrior, both in the courtroom and outside of it. She focuses on logical and intellectual solutions while advocating her client’s position.

As a result, she has a remarkable track record of success. Koryn lives out her guiding quote: “The greatest victory is that which requires no battle” (Sun Tzu, The Art of War).

Koryn has been practicing law with a family law focus since 2009. She graduated from law school in 2007 and went into the police academy before taking and passing the Bar exam in 2008. In 2012, she completed the San Diego Family Law College of Trial Advocacy course. This 6-week intensive course is designed to train attorneys who wish to deepen their knowledge of trial advocacy. Shortly afterward, Koryn was selected as one of San Diego’s Top Family Law Attorneys of 2013. In 2016, Koryn became a Minor’s Counsel which requires specialized training so she can represent children in family law cases. In 2017, Koryn took the Specialist Exam (which is similar to the Bar exam for particular practices areas) passed. Her application to be Certified Family Law Specialist was approved in 2018. Koryn has taken leadership positions with Bar organizations, has written published articles on family law issues, and given continuing education presentations to family law attorneys.

Koryn has unique experience handling military divorces due to her previous work at a military divorce focused family law firm. Her grandfather, father, step-father, and many friends have all served in various branches of the U.S. military—a fact of which she is very much proud.
