Associate Attorney - Tennessee
Brantley Pierce is an attorney in The Morgan Law Group’s Nashville, TN office. Brantley is from Mississippi, where he grew up in a small, unincorporated town called New Hope. He’s been a litigator from day one and brings with him the exceptional hands-on experience and knowledge he has earned through such a rich and diverse background in all manner of different areas of law.
Brantley attended East Mississippi Community College out of high school on an athletics scholarship before moving on to Itawamba Community College the following year. During his time at Itawamba, he took a Constitutional Law class taught by a retired judge and discovered his passion for the law. From Itawamba, he attended Mississippi State University, graduating cum laude with his bachelor’s degree in political science. After graduating from Mississippi State, Brantley moved to Washington, D.C. to work for U.S. Congressman, Alan Nunnelee. Following his time on Capitol Hill, Brantley started law school at the University of Mississippi School of Law, obtaining his juris doctor and graduating cum laude.
His legal career began in Jackson, Tennessee, where he represented clients in domestic/family matters such as divorce and child custody. During his time in Jackson, Brantley also handled criminal defense matters, including misdemeanors, felonies, juvenile delinquency, and dependency and neglect (child abuse). Having quickly earned the trust and confidence of those West Tennessee Courts, those judges consistently entrusted him to represent indigent clients and to serve as guardian ad litem.
From Jackson, Brantley moved to Nashville, stoking his passion for bringing the fight to greedy insurance companies that refused to hold up their end of the bargain when it came time to pay. He’s even practiced in the insurance defense field, giving him the unique advantage of understanding the ins and outs of how insurance companies operate—experience he relies on every day to give our clients a leg up in getting the compensation they deserve.
Over the course of his career, Brantley has practiced in City Courts, Environmental Courts, General Sessions Courts, Juvenile Courts, Probate Courts, Chancery Courts, Circuit Courts, and Courts of Appeals all throughout the State of Tennessee. He also practices in the Federal District Courts for the Western, Middle, and Eastern Districts of Tennessee. Brantley has successfully represented clients in all stages of pre- and post-litigation, including jury trials, bench trials, appeals, and everything in between.
In his free time, Brantley enjoys cooking, playing golf, being on the water, and spending time with his dog, Peeve (pet Peeve)
