Attorney Tyler Bailey

Tyler D. Bailey, owner of the Bailey Law Firm, was recently selected to participate in the American Association for Justice’s 2019 Leadership Academy. The American Association for Justice Leadership Academy is a highly selective program that selects only 16 plaintiff trial lawyers from various parts of the country for professional development sessions designed to give the participants skills and techniques to make them effective leaders in professional settings, within AAJ and in their communities.

Bailey says that he grew up learning the importance of helping people. That is why he became an attorney.

“I love being a lawyer,” Bailey says. “Both of my parents are pastors, and over the years I have watched them counsel and guide countless members of our church congregation through difficult times. The importance of being there for people in their time of need is a principle that I learned from my parents at a young age. And it is now one of the core principles of my law firm.”

Bailey attended Hampton University, where he graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. He then attended Southern University Law Center, where he graduated Cum Laude while earning his Juris Doctor degree.

“I graduated in the top 15% of my graduating class,” Bailey says proudly.

After law school, Bailey served as a Judicial Extern to the Honorable Chief Judge Brian A. Jackson who was appointed to the federal bench by President Barack Obama. He also worked with some of America’s most renowned trial lawyers while working at a prestigious South Carolina law firm. During this time, he earned numerous awards, including being named (at the age of 28) one of the Top 40 Under 40 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Organization, and one of the Best and Brightest 35 and Under by the Columbia Business Monthly Magazine.

Eventually, Bailey decided to open his own law firm. He founded the Bailey Law Firm in 2015. The firm focuses on five areas: Personal Injury, Workers Compensation, Criminal Defense, Family Law and Civil Litigation.

“Whether you have been injured in a car accident, hurt at work, are facing criminal charges, or going through a custody dispute, the legal process can be intimidating,” Bailey says. “Adding to this fear and anxiety, you likely do not know what to do next or how to assert your legal rights. That is what I am here for. At Bailey Law Firm, our job is to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, guide you through the process and assert your legal rights. While listening to your concerns and answering your questions, I’m strategically analyzing all of the facts and circumstances of your case to put together a plan of action that ensures you receive the best possible results in your given situation.”

Bailey says that he is successful because he is willing to go the extra mile to represent his clients. No one, he says, will work harder for you than the Bailey Law Firm.

“Every case that my law firm takes is a chance to repair and improve the lives of my clients,” Bailey says. “That is why I’m in the office before many lawyers wake up. That is why I work late into the evening on weekdays and dedicate my Sunday afternoon to my clients’ cases. I work hard for each and every one of my clients to earn and maintain their trust. I go the extra mile to meet our clients’ needs.”

The Bailey Law Firm is located at 1803 Hampton Street in Columbia. Bailey can be reached at (803) 395-0783 or by e-mail at To learn more, visit
