Adam J. SippleAdam J. Sipple


The hardest cases of all pit a single person all alone against a big organization. Virtually every civil rights case is that kind of case. So are whistle blower cases, environmental cases, and criminal cases.

Adam J. Sipple relishes them! If they can be won, he wins them. In fact, he has! Many times!

Sipple’s work in the courtroom involves invoking basic legal rights for citizens accused of crimes and using legal tools to vindicate their civil rights. His successes include protecting the right to exculpatory information and full disclosure from adversaries including the Government. He crafted an argument leading the Nebraska Supreme Court to vacate criminal sentences for twenty-six individuals sentenced to die in prison for crimes committed in childhood. These examples are just samplings of Adam’s work.

Juries understood evidence because of Sipple and ruled for his client. Trial and appellate courts appreciated arguments he made and ruled for his position.

After more than 25 years handling an array of Nebraska and Missouri civil and criminal cases, Adam Sipple spent a period serving as Legal director for the Nebraska Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.

He trained young ACLU lawyers and led litigation demanding protection from government abuse. Sipple’s work forced Omaha to amend its Municipal Code to protect the right of peaceful protest. He sued to protect the rights of Native American children to adhere to their cultural norms in public schools.

Adam is a Columbus Nebraska native, and a Washington University, St. Louis Missouri law school graduate. His undergraduate degree is from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Adam is licensed to practice law in Nebraska & Missouri.

Adam Sipple is married and is the father of two children.
