"My name is Tony Laughlin and have been a client of Shepard Insurance Agency since late 1997. I came to this agency for the purpose of getting lower insurance rates. I not only found lower insurance rates, but I found by far, one the best agents in Ms. Luz Gomez. I unfortuneately have had a few incidents with my vehicles in the past, and I never felt that I was getting anything but top service. The phone calls are returned in very timely manner, and questions are answered as if they knew before they were asked. With the service I receive, I feel like I am their only client. There is no exaggeration in any of these comments, I feel the way I have explained. Thank you Shepard Insurance and a special thanks to Luz Gomez. "

The story of Shepard Insurance Agency began in 1945 when Scott and Gary Shepard’s grandfather opened an independent insurance agency in Los Angeles, just across from Farmer’s Market.

Company PhotoThe business grew steadily as he earned a reputation for friendly service, attention to detail, and an unwavering commitment to look out for the best interests of his clients.  He eventually moved to a larger office near the present-day Beverly Center.  But his insistence on doing right by his customers never changed.  It formed the foundational principles that not only guided the firm’s development, but also fostered client relationships that would stretch across five decades.

Scott and Gary’s father took over the agency in 1960. Under his leadership, Shepard Insurance Agency expanded to the San Fernando Valley to serve the area’s growing population and business community. The company moved to its operations to the San Fernando Valley in 1986, locating in the Laurel Plaza Shopping Center next to what is today, Macy’s Department Store. 

Shepard Insurance became a third generation family-run company in the 1990s when Gary Shepard joined the firm, and eventually took the reins following his father’s retirement.  He was joined by Scott in 2000, and together the brothers expanded the company, growing it to 11 employees, In 2007, Shepard Insurance relocated to the heart of the North Hollywood Arts District, The Academy Tower, home of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences as well as expanded its superior service for residents of Santa Clarita Valley with the opening of its office in Valencia .
Though much has changed in the past 60 years, Shepard Insurance Agency is still family-owned, and still reflects the ideals of its founder – service, expertise, and integrity – every day.
