Shad C. Derozier

        Attorney Shad Derozier began his legal practice with a firm belief that every client relationship should concentrate on the client's goals, values, and objectives. He continues to hold this belief in his practice as he provides excellent service to his clients based in Lynchburg, Virginia.

        Shad focuses his legal services in the field of Estate Planning, with an emphasis on Trust Planning and Medicaid, or Title 19, Planning (which is helping clients protect their assets in the event they need care in a nursing home).

       An avid bowhunter, Shad enjoys deer hunting with his sons. During other times of the year, he will often be found pursuing almost any outdoor activity. He has been a member of the Arbor Day Foundation for some time and encourages responsible stewardship of our natural resources.

        Shad has been married for 26 years, and has 5 children. He says that his family is the foremost focus of his life – second only to his firm commitment to his Faith (he describes himself as a man under Christ). His faith has been the central theme of his life and is the reason he attended Regent University School of Law to earn his Juris Doctor degree. Regent is often regarded as the foremost Christian law school in the nation.

        Prior to attending law school, Shad worked as an instructor in the Chemistry Department of his undergrad alma mater, Virginia Tech. Shad holds a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry and a Master's Degree in Education, both from Virginia Tech. Shad is often asked why he went into law since he had a science background. His answer? He went into the practice of law because he felt called into it; the same reason he now practices estate planning.
