About me

Chad is a native South Carolinian with over twelve years of legal experience. After earning a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Bob Jones University here in Greenville, he attended the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, where he earned his law degree. While at Mercer Chad was a member of the Christian Legal Society and was President of the Mercer chapter of the Federalist Society.

Upon graduating from law school, Chad moved to Fairfax , Virginia where he worked for the National Law Center for Children and Families (NLC). As a Counsel with NLC, Chad focused his attention on federal legislation aimed at protecting children from exposure to Internet pornography. He also served as staff attorney to Commissioner J. Robert Flores, on the congressionally mandated, Child Online Protection Act Commission. A copy of the Commission report, which he helped draft, is available at: 

After two and a half years with the National Law Center, Chad was hired by Senator Charles Grassley to be one of his staff counsels on the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. As staff Counsel, Chad served on the Juvenile Justice and Crime subcommittees, which Senator Grassley chaired.

With five years of Hill experience, Chad was ready for a new challenge. In April 2006, he moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where he was a Special Assistant United States attorney. He spent two years as a federal prosecutor focusing on violations of narcotics and firearms laws. While in Iowa, Senator Grassley recommended Chad and two other lawyers to the Bush Administration to be considered for nomination to be the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Iowa. 

After two years in Iowa, Chad decided it was time to come back home to the Upstate. In May 2008, Chad established the Groover Law Firm to help those individuals needing legal representation.
