W. Lyon Chadwick, Jr.
Lyon Chadwick has earned a reputation as a talented, creative, and compassionate lawyer with a knack for out-of-the-box thinking that helps him find solutions for even the most complex cases at DRS Law.
Lyon graduated law school in 2009 before successfully sitting for and passing both the Mississippi and Tennessee Bar Exams. Before entering private practice at DRS Law, Lyon served as an attorney (hearing officer and commissioner’s designee) for three years with the Department of Labor.
He enjoys plaintiffs’ work most because it presents the opportunity to directly help people who have been wronged. Every case has a story and for him, the most memorable cases are the ones that result in real changes in people’s lives and communities.
Out of a family of talented musicians, artists and athletes, he comes from a long line of creative, hardworking, and passionate people. Lyon is a classically trained violinist and enjoys spending time with his family, playing music, and being outdoors.
