age: 28 | Attorney | Trammell Piazza Law Firm, PLLC
Representing clients in a variety of areas ranging from family law cases to complex civil litigation such as railroad crossing accidents and nursing home negligence is Olivia Sheppard’s duty as an attorney. No matter the case, Olivia’s job is to help put her clients in a better situation moving forward than when they came to her amidst crisis or tragedy.
After attending law school, Olivia moved back to Texarkana to practice law. Involved with many organizations and initiatives, she enjoys giving back to her hometown. “I’m a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church of Ashdown, a member of Women for A&M, and a member of the Texarkana Chi Omega Alumni chapter,” Olivia says. “I’m also a member of the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association of Justice, both of which maintain advocacy efforts that span across areas including our Texarkana area.”
Best piece of advice:
“BE PATIENT AND PERSISTENT.” – CHARLES TRAMMELL, OLIVIA’S GRANDFATHER
Every chance she gets, Olivia enjoys taking vacations with her family. “If I can find the time to leisurely read a book on the beach or see a Broadway play with my Mom, I’m in my happy place,” she explains. “I also love a good baseball trip, whether it’s to watch the Ashdown Panthers, my 7-year-old nephew, or to see my younger cousin play for LSU. I bleed Razorback red and am a University of Arkansas alumni, but I’m a baseball fan of whichever team my family plays for above all else.” Being an aunt to her nephew, Isaac, and niece, Charleigh, is very special to Olivia. She considers them to be “the very best.”
Name something about you that very few people know:
“The first concert I attended was to see Prince at Madison Square Garden. I have my Mom to thank for that one. I don’t think I fully appreciated it at the time.”
