Brandon R. Niepoetter

Brandon Niepoetter was born and raised in Centralia, Illinois. Brandon attended McKendree University where he received a Bachelor’s degree in history with a minor in political science. While at McKendree, Brandon was involved in multiple honors societies and played guitar in the University’s show choir program. 


Wanting to help people as much as possible, Brandon decided to enter law school at St. Louis University School of Law, where he earned his J.D. While at SLU, Brandon participated in the Street Law volunteer group, where he tutored local high school children on the rules of law, and he helped form the eLaw group to promote the use of technology in the legal field. 


While in law school, Brandon worked as an intern at Land of Lincoln Legal Aid where he had the privilege to help disadvantaged people overcome huge life obstacles. While there, Brandon learned a variety of legal practice areas and gained experience in legal research and writing.


Brandon’s goal is to be an efficient and caring attorney. When he is not working, Brandon spends time with his wife, Paige, and enjoys playing guitar.
