An attorney based in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Bryce Neier focuses primarily on family law international law, entertainment law, and other civil litigation at the state, federal and international levels. Bryce Neier also serves as an allied attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom Organization(ADF), formerly known as the Alliance Defense Fund.
The Alliance Defending Freedom is a nonprofit Christian organization founded in January 1994. Its focus is on assisting in the defense of religious freedom and advocating for the rights of Americans to “freely live out [their] faith.”
Legal practitioners who serve as allied attorneys with the ADF have access to a worldwide network of thousands of religious leaders, attorneys, and organizations committed to the ADF’s core principles of supporting marriage and families and the sanctity of life, as well as preserving religious freedoms. Attorneys may also volunteer in helping the ADF through pro bono service on cases that relate to the organization’s key areas of focus.
Some of the ADF’s victories include A.Z. v. Nova Classical Academy, in which a student was told not to pass out pro-life fliers at school; the school ultimately revised its policies to allow students to distribute pro-life and religious materials. Another victory for ADF came with the A.P. v. Tomah Area School District case, which resulted in the school system removing a ban on expression of religion in academic assignments.
