Attorney McChain


Scot Fitzerald McChain is the Managing Partner at McChain Hamm & Associates, LLP also known as USVI LAW, LLC. He is an experienced Virgin Islands Attorney with over 23 years of experience practicing law in the Territory with focus areas in Business Law, Litigation, Economic Development, Insurance, Real Estate, and Estate Planning. Scot was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, and has been a resident of the U.S. Virgin Islands since 1997. He earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Houston in 1997, and his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a specialization in Accounting from the University of Texas in 1990 and subsequently his CPA License in 1993.

Before attending law school, Scot practiced accountancy in the areas of auditing and mortgage banking. Scot’s dream of living and practicing law in the U.S. Virgin Islands was inspired during his vacation to St. Thomas and St. John in 1993, the same year that he had been accepted into law school. From that first visit to the Territory, he knew that he wanted to live in the islands, and as a U.S. jurisdiction, he would be able to practice law in the U.S. Virgin Islands as well.

A month after graduating from law school in May 1997, he realized his dream of moving to the island of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, and was admitted to the Virgin Islands Bar in 1997 and the United States Court of Appeal Third Circuit in 1998. Scot helps individuals and businesses in some of the most challenging situations through years of expertise, strategic thinking, and inspired solutions; clients can count on his trusted and sound legal counsel when they need it most.
