About the Founder


Bryce M. Hardin, Esq.
Founder

Bryce provides big firm experience, intelligent legal strategies, and common sense initiatives to his areas of practice. While in law school, Bryce served as law clerk for Hagood, Tarpy, & Cox where he gained invaluable knowledge from some of Knoxville’s premier civil litigators. After being admitted to practice law, Bryce was hired as an associate attorney with Tarpy, Cox, Fleishman, & Leveille. During that time, he represented financial institutions, negotiated transactions, resolved and litigated contract disputes, drafted estate planning documents, and probated estates.

Bryce was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee where he grew up playing sports, enjoying the outdoors and passionately cheering for the Vols. While receiving his BA in Political Science from the University of Tennessee, Bryce served as a strength and conditioning coach for UT football and baseball and was head of strength and conditioning at the Christian Academy of Knoxville. Thereafter, Bryce earned his Doctor of Jurisprudence from Lincoln Memorial Univeristy School of Law.

The day after taking the bar exam, Bryce met his wife-to-be. They both enjoy the outdoors, yelling at the Vols and wrangling their rambunctious toddler "Bear."
