“There is no greater satisfaction than vindicating one’s own expectations.” – Fredrich Nietzsche
Brantley Pierce, a native of Tupelo and New Hope, Mississippi, received his J.D. from the University of Mississippi School of Law, where he graduated cum laude in 2015. Prior to law school, Brantley attended Mississippi State University.
After having been practicing for over a year doing family and criminal defense law with a different firm, Brantley recognized it was time to invest in a career. Doing just that, he reached out to Rocky through a mutual acquaintance and pled his case. After having held ‘jobs’ since he was old enough to drive, Brantley pitched himself, hoping for an opportunity to build a career with Rocky and the incredible team at Rocky McElhaney Law Firm. Rocky obliged and Brantley has been a part of the team since April of 2017.
Brantley’s education took him from Tupelo to New Hope to Saltillo, and back to New Hope before graduating from New Hope High School in 2007. Accepting a soccer scholarship, Brantley went on to East Mississippi Community College for a year, followed up by a final year of junior college at Itawamba Community College. He then graduated cum laude from Mississippi State University with his B.A. in Political Science in 2011. Brantley moved to Washington, D.C. for several months after MSU, where he worked as an intern for United States Congressman, Alan Nunnelee before returning home and earning his J.D. from the University of Mississippi School of Law, where he graduated cum laude in 2015.
Brantley is most likely to be found on either the water or the golf course on his time off.
