Derek is a native of Lancaster, South Carolina and a graduate of Lancaster High School. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration in 2007 from Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina. While at Presbyterian, Derek was named to the Dean’s List, worked in the student center, and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity.

Immediately following undergraduate school, Derek sought his Juris Doctor degree from Charlotte School of Law in Charlotte, North Carolina. While attending law school, Derek studied abroad at the St. Mary’s University Institute on World Legal Problems, where he studied under an international faculty, including United States Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.

After completing his education, Derek decided that the best use of his legal education would be to serve his hometown area. He began his legal career at a small firm in Lancaster, where he represented clients on a broad range of matters, including domestic, civil, criminal, and probate issues. Derek joins the Schiller & Hamilton team to head the firm’s newly reopened Lancaster Office to continue serving his hometown. He will focus his practice on family law and probate matters, as well as personal injury and accidents.

Derek is an avid outdoorsman when not practicing law, and enjoys hunting and fishing throughout the year. He was awarded the Eagle Scout rank in 2001 while a member of Troop 72 of the Boy Scouts of America in Lancaster.  Derek currently serves as an Area Chairman of Ducks Unlimited, leading the Lancaster County Chapter’s committee of volunteers to raise money and awareness to preserve and protect wetland habitat. In 2013, Derek completed the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce’s “Leadership Lancaster” program, a course designed to educate potential community leaders about the history, needs, and goals of Lancaster County. Derek and his wife, Natalie, are active in their church and community and enjoy traveling and spending time with family and friends.

  • -Luecendor J. “I was in a car accident on August 31, 2013. My son also was in an accident on the school bus. I was very devastated. So, I contacted Schiller Law Firm and they came to my rescue. Schiller Law Firm is great. They make sure that you understand and listen to your situation. Customer Service is wonderful at all times inside the office and on the telephone. They make you feel comfortable. Schiller Law Firm always makes time for their clients. I made the right choice by choosing Schiller Law Firm to solve my cases in a timely manner. You can always trust Schiller Law Firm to get to the bottom of the situation of your case.” -Matt H. “In January, 2014, my father and I were in a serious vehicular accident which thankfully resulted only in minor injuries, and my vehicle was deemed a total loss. Schiller & Hamilton, LLC was highly recommended to us by Dr. Martin’s Chiropractic Office in Bluffton, SC and provided service to my father and me right away. Schiller & Hamilton, LLC has been there every step of the way and has been there for me and my father in more ways than one. They are fast acting and their communication with us has been awesome to say the least. I would recommend Schiller & Hamilton, LLC to any of my close friends and especially my personal family, and they will be the first people I call if I ever need advice or help. Thank you Schiller & Hamilton, LLC for all you have done and continue to do.” -Crystal B. “It was a pleasure to work with the staff at Schiller & Hamilton. They were always willing to go above and beyond what was expected. I sincerely appreciated their professionalism and dedication in the handling of my case. Thank you for a job well done.” -Evelyn and James J. “The attention that my husband’s case received from Schiller & Hamilton was far more than we could have expected or hoped for. They made us feel like we mattered, we were not just another case. I would recommend them to anyone in need of an attorney. We were so happy with the way they handled my husband’s workman’s comp case that we are now using them for his social security case.”
