Shaphan joined us at the start of 2020 and she has already become a huge asset to our firm! She is Martin and Taylor’s right hand and assistant.


Shaphan grew up in south Texas, in a small town known as Zapata, Texas.  She has always had a passion for helping others, especially in the legal field. Her first job in high school was working at a local law office. After graduating from Zapata High School, she earned a B.P.A. in Public Administration with a Minor in Political Science at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. While attending the university, she started the advancement in her legal career working at an immigration law firm for four years in Austin, TX. She is experienced with assisting clients navigate their cases, knowledgeable in handling day to day operations in the office, and does her very best working with both the attorneys and clients to ensure they both have a great relationship throughout their case process.  

Shaphan is very family-oriented, and loves spending as much time with her family and loved ones when she is not at the office. She loves honing in her musical skills by playing her violin or piano, doing DIY projects, and seeking out places to travel next, near and far during her free time.
