With my most sincere condolences to the Sheppard family. Not only was Ed an eminent professional and a leading figure in the Washington maritime bar, he was a kind and gracious person. He treated me with the utmost kindness and undeserved graciousness when I was a newly-minted attorney with no experience in what can be a byzantine field. I am very lucky to have had his introduction; he set a high standard for the practice and its culture and we are all the better for it.

ED was a great and very competent lawyer who helped me enormously in times of need. I will never forget how much he did for me and my family.
I think of his generosity often. I am truly saddened by notice of his passing.
