Audrey Shepard started working at Cislo & Thomas as a legal assistant in 2021 while finishing her studies at UCLA, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Political Science Summa Cum Laude at UCLA that Summer. She is passionate about advocacy, spending countless hours in high school and college competing in national Mock Trial Tournaments, receiving both team and individual awards and honors, including becoming the youngest person to win the national 1-on-1 Gladiator High School Mock Trial Competition in 2016 and later winning the Trial By Combat Championship in 2021, the national collegiate 1-on-1 competition.

In the interim between college and law school, Audrey spends her free time performing with her family and friends in their local cover band, singing and playing violin for the worship team at her church in Ventura, volunteer coaching high school mock trial students, and partnering with her older sister to bother their four brothers to her heart’s content.
