Lauren Sherrell

Lauren Sherrell, a graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law, has joined the law firm of O’Shaughnessy & Carter in Chattanooga. She will focus her practice on wills, trusts, and estate administration, along with real estate and general business transactions. O’Shaughnessy & Carter is a team of dedicated trial attorneys and advocates representing clients in general civil litigation and criminal defense throughout Tennessee. Sherrell previously assisted attorney Vance Fry with his estate practice.

While studying at the University of Tennessee College of Law, Sherrell earned a concentration in business transactions. She holds a Master of Business Administration and an undergraduate degree in piano performance from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. During law school, Sherrell served as judicial intern to the Hon. Jeffrey Hollingsworth, circuit court judge for the Eleventh Circuit Court in Tennessee. Upon graduation, she was recognized for significant pro bono participation during her tenure at the College of Law. Sherrell grew up in Chattanooga, and worked for several years at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee prior to her acceptance into law school.

Sherrell loves the area of estate law, and has a deep commitment and interest in counseling clients in a variety of inheritance matters. She feels that her business background gives her a particular advantage with regard to advising clients in financial matters. Sherrell enjoys helping clients preserve family wealth through carefully-considered wills and trust agreements, and she stresses the importance of estate planning for anyone with dependents such as minor children. Sherrell takes pride in listening carefully to her clients’ particular needs and circumstances – family, financial, and otherwise – in order to create an estate plan that is customized specifically for them.
