Bryce Neier also supports such charitable organizations as Smile Train, which provides cleft palate surgeries for children in need. Thanks the support of 2.7 million donors, Smile Train has developed a network of partners and programs in 90 countries worldwide and performed more than a million cleft palate surgeries.
Smile Train recognizes that cleft palate surgery is just the beginning for the children it serves, and so offers ongoing support in the form of dental and orthodontic care and speech therapy. In addition, Smile Train provides extensive training for surgeons and medical professionals in more than 140 countries, ensuring their ability to continue caring for the local community. In the past 17 years, Smile Train has provided tens of thousands of free scholarships, workshops, symposiums, and training resources.
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.
Litigation attorney Bryce Neier focuses his law practice on family law, and has prevailed in a number of major international child custody cases between his state of North Carolina and countries such as Germany, Spain, Canada, and Columbia South America. He is also admitted to practice in both state and federal courts, up to and including the Supreme Court of the United States. When not representing clients, Bryce Neier supports a number of charities, including Smile Train.
Cleft lip or cleft palate occurs when certain tissue structures do not join together properly during the development of the fetus. These improperly formed tissues typically affect the upper lip or the roof of the mouth. Children with this very visible defect are not just subject to ridicule and isolation, they often experience physical difficulties with speaking, eating, and breathing.
While in the US such conditions are surgically corrected, in the poorest countries of the world most children with clefts will never receive the necessary reconstructive surgery. Cleft palates occur in about 1 in 500 births among Asians, 1 in 700 among Caucasians, and 1 in 1200 among Africans.
Smile Train empowers local doctors in 85 developing countries to provide completely free cleft lip and palate repair surgery by training and funding them in their communities. The trained physicians then proceed to train other colleagues, creating a more long-term solution. Since 1999, Smile Train has performed this transformative service for more than one million children worldwide.
Through his firm, the Law Office of Bryce D. Neier, Bryce Neier represents clients in such areas as family law, criminal defense, and entertainment law. Outside of his responsibilities as an attorney in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Bryce Neier supports both local and international charities, including Smile Train.
Smile Train is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children with cleft lips or palates. Smile Train provides cleft surgeries free of charge, helping to change lives and communities in 87 countries.
The organization also offers comprehensive care programs, which include orthodontics and speech therapy. These programs help children get the most out of their new smiles.
Speech therapy is particularly important for cleft patients after corrective surgery, because they will need to re-learn many elements of speaking. Smile Train’s speech pathologists and therapists help patients to learn correct articulatory placement and oral pressure. This therapy allows people with previously impaired speech to improve their speaking and language skills significantly.
Bryce Neier, an allied attorney (not employee) with the Alliance Defending Freedom Organization, uses his experienced as a former United States Army Officer to help military personnel involved in family law cases. Bryce Neier has a variety of experience with the US Army, including a father who served as an Armor Officer in the 3rd Armored Division during World War II who later graduated from Cornell University of Law and practiced in New York and Connecticut.
Working with the legal matters of a military family requires a unique understanding of both military personnel and family law which Bryce Neier has acquired over his lifetime and in his law practice.
Matters of international child support and international child custody are particularly difficult. Mediation in these areas entails knowledge of custody rights, a legal approach for visitation rights, and a legal approach for returning the child. The purpose of such mediation is to protect the child as well as the relationship that the child has with his or her parents.
When negotiating divorce terms, experienced attorneys recognize that divorce settlements must serve the interests of every party involved. Otherwise, the case typically ends up in court at a later date to settle further disputes with extensive expenses involved.
If you need an experienced family law attorney with both military and international experience, then Bryce Neier is the attorney for you.
