Experience the Difference.
Pierce A. ShimpPierce Shimp joined MVP in 2023 after gaining experience with the Missouri Attorney General’s office for over four years. He practiced in administrative law, probate law, and worker’s compensation defense before joining MVP, arguing before a variety of Circuit Courts, Administrative Law Judges, and the Missouri Western District Court of Appeals. At MVP, Pierce focuses his practice on workers' compensation matters in Kansas and Missouri.
Pierce graduated from the Kansas State University in 2015, with a Bachelor of the Arts in English. He then attended KU Law, participating in its Moot Court and Mock Trial programs, while also clerking for two years for the Kansas Department of Transportation in Topeka. He has experience litigating Missouri Worker’s Compensation matters, with insight in dealing with cases involving Missouri’s Second Injury Fund. He gained invaluable experience mediating cases and deposing claimants, doctors, and vocational experts in preparation for defending hundreds of alleged permanent disability cases, many involving the complex interaction between Second Injury Fund liability with vocational and medical restrictions and limitations.
Pierce prides himself in analyzing the law clearly and communicating with clients about the strengths and weaknesses of any given matter, and listening to their desires on how to best resolve a matter.
Pierce belongs to the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association, and volunteers with the Modernists, an affiliate of the National World War 1 Museum in Kansas City. He enjoys playing soccer, reading (a lot) of historical non-fiction, and spending time with family and friends.
