About Chad

Learn Chad’s areas of practice.

After graduating from the West Virginia College of Law, I was blessed to be able to return to my hometown of Huntington, West Virginia to begin the practice of law.  After working at a technologically-advanced insurance defense firm, I decided to change the focus of my practice to the representation of injured people and working families in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. David Duffield and I formed Duffield & Lovejoy, PLLC in 2004, with an emphasis on using technology in our practice to improve advocacy and overall legal representation.

Since 1997, I have been honored to lecture to over 2000 lawyers in West Virginia on the effective use of technology in the law.  This area of expertise allowed me to begin teaching as an adjunct faculty member at the Marshall University CTC on "Computer Applications in the Law Office."

I also try to remain actively involved with service to the legal profession.  On a state level, I am currently serving as a member of the Executive Committee and Board of Governors of the West Virginia Association for Justice.  I have also served as the Chairman of the West Virginia State Bar Law Office Technology Committee.  In 2007, I was asked by the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia, our highest Court, to serve as the only lawyer on its Multimedia Committee, which has worked to place cutting edge presentation technology in every Courtroom. 

Regardless of the many lawyer jokes, I still consider it a high calling to be able to serve those people and families who find themselves suffering from loss.  Perhaps a hopeless idealist, I still believe in the rule of law and in a legal system that both speaks truth to power and allows for accountability.  I would like to continue to grow our practice by being available to serve the legal needs of the people of the Tri-State area.

| Hired Attorney
Professionalism at its best
I hired Chad to handle a case for me several years ago, and to say I was happy with his representation is an understatement. He is professional, highly skilled, relatable, understanding, and friendly. In fact, Chad is the ONLY attorney I will ever use in the Tri-State area, and I cannot recommend him enough.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Chad is not only an excellent lawyer, but also an outstanding member of the community. He is hardworking and passionate about his cases."
Medical malpractice Attorney | Feb 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Chad Lovejoy is unquestionably one of the best legal minds in our state. He's thus able to obtain excellent results for his clients. And, although he's one of the more brilliant people I've met (lawyer or non-lawyer), he's also extremely down to earth. He has the very rare ability to discuss and explain the most complex and esoteric legal issues in a way that is actually understandable -- even to a newer lawyer. But the two things I appreciate the most about Chad are his wit and his willingness to help. I'll always remember what he's taught me because he so often explains things with hilarious stories and lessons from his own experiences/adventures as a younger lawyer. Additionally, when I first opened my own practice, he took the time -- despite an extremely busy schedule -- to sit down with me at a conference table for about two hours to explain the basics of becoming a successful trial lawyer. That alone speaks volumes about his character. I highly recommend Chad Lovejoy."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Chad is a focused, hard working, and strategic-thinking lawyer."
Litigation Attorney | Dec 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Chad Lovejoy is, hands down, one of the best trial lawyers in West Virginia. He has a brilliant legal mind and yet, he is humble. He is empathetic and authentic. I would not hesitate to recommend him to those needing excellent representation."
Litigation Attorney | Dec 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have the utmost respect for Mr. Lovejoy as an attorney and as a member of the community. I endorse this attorney."
