Raised in Columbus, Adam Sipple earned his B.A. from the University of Nebraska and his law degree from Washington University in St. Louis. Adam has practiced law for twenty-nine years with some of the best lawyers in the Midwest, in big cases, with high stakes.
Adam believes the Constitution is designed to protect the people against government abuse, in any form. He has prosecuted and won many cases advancing the fundamental civil rights of his client, including the right to peacefully protest, the right to openly carry a firearm, the protection against unreasonable arrests and searches, the right to a fair trial, the right to a fair and independent judge, the right to exculpatory evidence and the prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. Adam has won cases resulting in repeal or revision of unconstitutional municipal ordinances. He has caused law-enforcement officers to be taken off the streets.
Adam has also won acquittals in numerous criminal trials and more than half of the cases he has tried. He has brought Jurors to tears during opening argument and Jurors have thanked him from the jury box before returning Not Guilty verdicts. His skilled cross-examination has resulted in alleged victims and witnesses recanting their allegations during trial.
Adam has also won numerous appellate reversals in the Nebraska Supreme Court and United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. In one case, the Eighth Circuit ordered the release of his client prior to release of its decision, a feat rarely accomplished.
Adam is not a former prosecutor. He was not a police officer. He depends on strength in the courtroom, not relationships with prosecutors, for success.
Adam earns the respect and confidence of his clients, of judges, and of other attorneys one case at a time. He is a Nebraska Bar Fellow and an elected member of the Judicial Nominating Committee for the Douglas County District Court. Adam is also a member of the Nebraska Association of Trial Attorneys, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and Nebraska Criminal Defense Attorneys Association.
Adam does not buy badges for his website, or claim he is the best lawyer in the country. But he does promise that if you are his client, he will skillfully and aggressively protect your rights and advance your claims while treating you and your case as his most important.
