    Probate is the legal process used to carry out a person's will after their death; a probate attorney advises you on how to perform the steps in the process.

Kyle is a lifelong Alabamian who grew up in Attalla, graduated from The University of Alabama, then attended Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law. His law practice is built around solving issues for the people and businesses of Etowah County so they can do more.

Kyle is deeply rooted in the Etowah County Community. While in high school at Etowah, his first job was wearing a zebra suit at community events as the mascot for Z93, “Zooby-Do.” Believe it or not, that’s relevant to Kyle’s path to the legal profession. That job quickly turned into another when Kyle became Digital Content Director for Z93 and WAAX where he was responsible for the content and design of all digital properties associated with the radio stations.

From there, Kyle moved to Tuscaloosa while he attended The University of Alabama and continued to work in radio. During Kyle’s time in Tuscaloosa, he was fortunate to have been a member of a small award-winning team at 98 TXT, which covered the April 27, 2011 tornado outbreak and provided around-the-clock live coverage until electricity was restored to every Tuscaloosa County resident. This was not the beginning of Kyle’s passion for serving others, which had begun years earlier while in high school when Kyle was elected Key Club District Governor, but it was the lightbulb moment where he realized that he could bring his passion for serving others into his career.

Since then, Kyle participated in research while at Alabama that provided small communities with the tools to create news outlets, developed methods for better calculating return on investment (ROI) on advertising spending, and analyzed the impact of harmful statutes on disenfranchised communities. That didn’t keep Kyle from continuing his passion for service. While in Tuscaloosa, Kyle was lucky enough to again serve as a state leader of a Kiwanis family club when he was elected as Alabama District Circle K Governor.

Following his graduation from the University of Alabama, Kyle moved to Birmingham to attend Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law. Kyle continued his service to Alabamians as the Charter President of the Kiwanis Club of Magic City Young Professionals. That did not prevent Kyle from taking a rigorous course load that; in addition to the required courses in Estate Planning, Legal Procedure, and Contracts; included Advanced Trial Advocacy training for both Criminal and Civil cases; in-depth Real Estate & Business Transactions; and, Voting Rights litigation. Beyond his studies, Kyle has researched and written on developments in Real Estate & Land Laws and the best practices for law firm operation.

Kyle’s tireless work ethic meant that his studies and community service were not the only things he was a part of during his time at Cumberland. Kyle first clerked for Hon. Judge David A. Kimberly of Alabama’s Sixteenth Judicial Circuit where he researched pending cases and provided insight into court filings in the Summer of 2014. Following that summer, Kyle worked on large personal injury cases as a Law Clerk for Steve Tipler at Tipler Law Offices where he conducted legal research, wrote motions and briefs for the court, and prepared information during the information finding phase of cases. Those two work experiences while at Cumberland prepared Kyle for the practice of the law.

Now, as a lawyer practicing in Gadsden and Etowah County through The Law Offices of Kyle D. Pierce, Kyle works every day to bring his passion for serving others together with his knowledge and experience to solve problems for his clients that allow them to do more and go further in the pursuit of their passions.

Legal Help
I made an appointment with Attorney Kyle Pierce, Gadsden, Al. He was very kind but realist with me & my daughter about the possibility of win or losing our case. I hired him and I think I made a great decision.

Exceptional
I have selected Mr. Pierce to help me determine whether or not I have custody of my child, and what steps I will need to take to bring him home. He is very knowledgeable, and I trust that he will be able to get the answers I need. For any issues I have in the future that may require legal representation I fullly intend to use Mr. Pierce. I highly recommend him to those in need of counsel.

Quick and efficient solutions for my business.
Kyle worked with us from day one to help write our business plan, draft our incorporation documents and operating agreement, then later identify business efficiency issues and facilitate real estate transactions. In all that, Kyle's work has been quick, thorough, and diligent.

Legal Issues
This is the second time that I have used Kyle to represent me in this matter. The first time I wrote a review which was not a favorable one, after we discussed my case and at that time I was feeling a little better about the situation and he asked me to change the first review. I did, because I thought that he truly tried his best the first time. I used Kyle for a CRO hearing only because I knew that he was familiar with my situation and I did call around for other representation, but decided to go with Kyle anyway because he knew that case and I honestly felt that this time would be better. I do not feel like he fought for me knowing that my situation could end up causing me to be sanctioned. I feel like I did more research about what was going on than what he did, especially when he has more available resources than what I did. Now facing the possibility of added time to the CRO situation. He tried to tell me that he provided sound arguments to the case and that he did his best, but ultimately his best was not good enough. He also said that I should not basically dwell on what has already happened and that I should focus more on just finishing out my CRO. That's is a VERY hard pill to swallow because I am facing added time on something that I would have been finished with in two months. My advise would be to anyone that needs an attorney for anything please do not trust in Kyle. If he honestly feels like he fought for me and he did his absolute best. I would hate to actually see what his best is and I fear for his clients now and for future clients to come. Lesson learned from now on I will not use any of these local attorneys, there maybe some good ones out there but Kyle Pierce is not one.

Shanon, I know it’s hard that sound advice isn’t always the easy route, but, as you know, I can't go into specifics here due to legal ethic requirements. I do truly hate that you feel like you had a bad experience. We always work within the facts and law to get the best outcome possible given the circumstances, and your characterization of what happened just simply doesn't match the facts of the situation. I’m happy to continue teaching you about this process. Just give us a call at 256-399-9470 to set something up. -Kyle

…WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY…
I hired Kyle in Nov 2019 to help update child support for my child of the major (20yrs of age at the time), to remove my name from the home that I gave my ex-wife via quick claim deed (6yrs after the divorce and she had been remarried for 3 hrs at the time) and to address a custody agreement that was being ignored. All of my complaints were of the highest concern for myself and family. Kyle talked a big game and made big promises in our first of only 2 face to face meetings over a 2yr timeframe. Of course he required an upfront in full retainer fee without a written timeline agreement. !!!! !!(Mistake on my part)!! As the months roll by and the numerous emails/calls etc go by I seriously questioned my decision to hire him for such an important matter. Based on Kyle’s promises my case should have been a priority and pretty straight forward. It was far from it… The case was drug out 5 times over a year and with little to zero momentum on Kyle’s behalf. Kyle would only answer my emails after several attempts. I would always have to email or call him to see if we were having our hearing as scheduled or if it had been continued. He never took initiative EVER…. Kyle resolved NOTHING over the 2 years that he was hired and turned out to be a huge waste of time, money and emotions… This November of 21 will make 3 yrs with no resolution or hearing. I have now have a new attorney; she scheduled our hearing to happen within month as a priority. Good luck and never settle for less!!! If you care about your case please take my advise as a warning and as a lesson learned….

Response from Kyle Pierce September 25, 2021
I hate that you feel that you had a bad experience. Although we focus on criminal defense and probate, our goal is make every client feel appreciated - especially in contentious family law cases which oftentimes take much longer than anybody would prefer. I cannot ethically discuss the specifics of a case in a forum such as this, but, generally over that period of time in a family law case numerous hearings would occur - and issues would be settled - even if the case continued on to resolve other issues. A couple of thoughts concerning our general policies and procedures that I want to address though: (1) We require a signed agreement in every matter that is opened. This allows us to be on the same page regarding the scope of representation and the fees & costs involved. This agreement does not spell out a timeframe, because every case is different and the timeline often time changes drastically based on the case strategy - i.e. if discovery is required and if so how in depth. (2) We provide updates no less than once every 45 days via written letter (or email if preferred). Additionally, we have a free available application for iOS and Android, called Case Status, where you can always view your most recent case updates and ask questions of our team. (3) Although in family law cases, we do require an upfront retainer to be held in trust. We always provide itemized statements regarding where, how, and when those funds are billed against as the case progresses. (4) You are completely correct that email is oftentimes not the quickest way to receive a response from our team. I generally respond to emails sent to me directly by the end of the following business day, but our team is available via phone during regular business hours to address concerns, provide updates, get questions to me, or setup a time for clients to meet with me directly. If you have any questions, please never hesitate to reach out. I’m always happy to provide context as much as possible. -Kyle
