Shepherd’s Flock Not So Diverse

Willie Shepherd, formerly of Kamlet Shepherd & Reichert LLP., has been caught in a lie about the percentage of women and minorities with ownership in the firm.  He  told the E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co. Diverse Legal Supplier Program that his firm had 48.5%  when the actual percentage was 30.1%.  DuPont’s website highlights the reason for Shepherd’s desire to qualify for their program, “DuPont purchases millions of dollars of goods and services annually from Minority and Woman-Owned Businesses to meet the needs of plant and office sites around the world.”  It’s puzzling why Shepherd, a founding partner of Kamlet, Shepherd & Reichert, would not simply comply with the program’s requirements rather than lie about it.  Not only was he in a position to make it happen, his presence in the firm helped him meet the goal.

The judge, who issued a public censure of Shepherd, also ordered him to pay a bizarre $127.50 in investigative costs related to another complaint.

Shepherd will be able to keep his license to practice law and is now on his own at Shepherd Law Group PC in Denver, CO.
