Serving the Community Since 1936

Our Firm

Adams and Fisk, PLC is a firm of Attorneys and Counselors at Law with a powerful legacy of service to the community. Located in the historic Southside Virginia Town of Chatham in Pittsylvania County, our team of lawyers and staff of administrative professionals take pride in delivering legal services of high quality to all of our clients.



In 1936, Coleman B. Yeatts, Sr. established a law practice in Chatham, Virginia. That firm grew to become the partnership known as Yeatts, Overbey and Ramsey, which for decades served clients with distinction in the general practice of law. Its members included former Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court Judge Coleman B. Yeatts, Jr., longtime real estate practitioner and former Assistant Commissioner of Accounts Jesse W. “Buck” Overbey, and Linda F. Ramsey, who was Pittsylvania County’s first practicing female attorney. Coleman B. Yeatts, Sr., in addition to his career as a lawyer in Chatham, also served in Richmond as a member of Virginia’s General Assembly, first in the House of Delegates and later in the Senate.

Timothy M. Fisk joined the practice in the fall of 2010. Les R. Adams, a member of the Virginia House of Delegates since 2014 and now a Senior Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney in Pittsylvania County, joined the firm in the Spring of 2011, which had earlier that same year organized as a professional limited company: Yeatts, Overbey and Ramsey, PLC. In the following year they led the purchase and renovation of the former BB&T bank building at the corner of Main Street and Court Place in Chatham and thereafter moved the firm from its adjacent location to the newly acquired property. During this period, Adams and Fisk rejuvenated an array of practice areas and have substantially grown the firm in the years since. The law firm was renamed Adams and Fisk, PLC in 2017.



The mission of Adams and Fisk, PLC is to provide quality representation and advice in the general practice of law in ways that exude excellence in the profession, add value to the firm, and demonstrate the highest Christian ideals for our community. Our business principles include rigorous and thorough preparation, keen attention to detail, deliberate and successful performance, and a focus on client interests. We define our core values with the Scripture we inscribed in marble and embedded in the center of our office floor, Micah 6:8, which reminds us to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.
