Success Is Balance of Work, Personal and Spiritual Life

Feb. 6, 2015 - by Jillian Marsh

Adrien Piercy is an attorney with Bever Dye, LC, in Wichita, Kansas. But before that she was a marketing major at MNU. In 2007, she was even named Marketing Student of the Year.

Adrien1 outcomes-61-3566513780-OToday, Piercy deals primarily with transactional work rather than litigation. She knew early on that she wanted to work with estate planning because these unique plans allow her the opportunity to use her God-given creativity to help others.

While earning her juris doctorate at University of Kansas School of Law, a nationally ranked law school, Piercy received the CALI Award for Estate Planning by having the highest score in her entire law school class. After completing an internship with Bever Dye, LC, she was offered her current position, even before entering her third year of law school. 

But, believe it or not, Piercy’s awards and her early job offer are not what she recognizes as her most successful moments.

“I feel most successful when, at the end of the day, I’ve done a good job balancing my work life and personal life,” she says. “When you get older you realize how hard it is to be a full-time Christian and a full-time attorney and a full-time wife. When I get to the end of the day and feel like I’ve spent good time with my husband, good time with the Lord and worked hard, I know I’ve done a good job for the day.”

  •          Member of the Kansas State Bar Association.
  •          Completed her J.D. at the University of Kansas School of Law.

She’s probably having pizza for dinner (or she could be, because she could eat it for every meal).
