Lieutenant Commander Stewart Sibert – United States Coast Guard
LCDR Stew Sibert is an exceptional & dynamic young attorney who has rapidly distinguished himself and demonstrated impeccable judgement. In his first legal assignment, he dove into the center of a war crimes trial that drew sustained interest from the national media & President. Despite the unprecedented challenge, he was a key part of the team that secured the dismissal of all charges.
Later, he was hand-picked as defense counsel on what may be the most highprofile criminal case the Coast Guard tried in a decade, again securing dismissal or acquittal of the most serious charges.
By all accounts he is a tenacious advocate in the court room. He now serves as the Acting Deputy Chief of Information & Intelligence Law and maintains his normal duties as the Legal Advisor for Cyberspace Forces. As one of our very few cyber attorneys, he has played a key role in shaping strategy, industry regulations, & operations as we move to adapt to the challenging realities of cyberspace. Outside of his cyber role, he is a natural leader within the intel and information law space and guides a team of attorneys overseeing and advising Coast Guard intelligence operations worldwide.
In his personal capacity, Stew volunteers with the Air Force Auxiliary, providing leadership training at his local squadron. There, he helps support about 50 cadets as they prepare to serve their community, state, & nation. He also gives back to his alma mater as a member of the Academy Alumni Association’s Board of Directors, supporting a margin of excellence for cadet programs and providing lifelong support to 6,500 members.
LCDR Sibert has truly distinguished himself as an outstanding military lawyer.
