Principally focused on family law and civil litigation including international law and entertainment law, and based in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Litigation attorney Bryce Neier received his JD from Campbell University School of Law. Prior to that, he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army, where he served from 1983 to 1988 attaining the rank of Captain before leaving active duty to pursue a career in law. In addition to handling cases at his law office, Bryce Neier volunteers as an allied attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom Organization (ADF), an organization which litigates constitutional issues in areas of religious liberty and legal issues which are at the forefront of our country.
Alliance Defending Freedom Organization (formerly Alliance Defense Fund) was created by more than 30 Christian leaders in 1994 with the thought that Christians needed to unite to protect their faith against threats from the legal system to religious freedom and beliefs. ADF funds cases and advocates for its positions in defense of Christian values in court.
Two examples of ADF involved victories at the US Supreme Court are Rosenberger v. University of VA and Town of Greece v. Galloway. In the former case, the Supreme Court ruled that religious groups must be included on public college campuses where student fee funding is involved. In the latter case, the court upheld the constitutionality of opening government meetings with prayer, ensuring the legality of this long-held tradition across the country.
