If you want to solve a problem, you first have to understand it. This is as true in day-to-day life as it is in the practice of law. At Shrader & Goad, in Amherst, Virginia, our general practice attorneys are effective at solving our clients’ legal problems because we know the law and how it affects real-life situations.

If you come to us with a legal concern, we will discuss it with you thoroughly, so we understand your point of view and the outcomes you wish to achieve. Moreover, we will do the research necessary to uncover the facts. Once we have all the necessary information, we can recommend a course of action and inform you of your options within the law.

This prudent approach might seem obvious, but it truly differentiates our law firm. When clients hire us to do legal work for them, we take their needs seriously and perform the due diligence to meet those needs.

Our goal is to provide a favorable return on your investment in legal services.
