The folks in the courthouse know who the best lawyer is because they know who has filed the most cases. In central Texas the guy with the most clients is Felix Rippy. period, objectively the best-- and i hired him precisely because i do work in the willianson county, texas courthouse and i was happy i did. the other sude couldnt even get around mr. rippy's quashing subpoenas for all their witnesses and we just won and won and won.

This lawyer has now become the all time leading lawyer in Williamson County, Texas history, with more than 1100 clients, passing Ed Walsh, another fine attorney but who has a 15 year head start. Not many ways to objectively tell who is the best lawyer in central Texas but a good way is who has the most clients...in fact it's the only objective way, and this guy sure did me right. Not cheap but you get what you pay for in life.

Rude and disrespectful liar. Will do anything for a buck. Does not promote co-parenting. he likes to continue cases that are urgent. Never looks for reconciliation in child custody, in fact promotes Chaos, confusion and no end until children are 18 and the parents are depleted of funds at the expense of children! And I did I mention, HE IS A BULLY! No class
He was very passive and allowed the spouse to go 7 months without getting child support or spousal. He never remembered my case and would get dates wrong and he was timid and afraid to speak up. Too amicable when the other side is vicious and too rough with his clients.

Unprofessional and shady. He lost his bar card for a year in 2012. Being Board Certified does not mean a lot. He also has bad reviews removed. All of his golfing buddies post good reviews for him.
He emailed contacted my ex spouse directly and shared information about my case with opposing counsel after I fired him off my case. My new attorney urged me to report him to the bar. I was like the other reviewer and too emotionally spent to even care at the time. Hopefully he will get his act together or lose his bar card for good.

Like many of the happy clients on this and other sites, I hired Mr. Rippy because I had been told by the other child like lawyers that I was just ineligible for alimony and Texas was a "non-alimony" state. Well, thank God I hired Mr. Rippy, since I am getting $150,000 in alimony... post martial support for me. That's the difference in hiring Mr. Rippy and not--litereally the roof over your head. There really is NOT another firm in Round Rock where 100% the partners either have been Judges or are running for Judge now, and it shows! This firm is great!

At the beginning, he sounded strong end aggressive against the other party, after a couple of emails he was recommending me to sign the papers the other party have sent me, I went to his office to talk about this and he pretty much was on the other party's side. He kept telling me "If we go to court, it's better for me, more money for me" What is that??? I know you studied a lot to get where you at but remember, your profession helps people or destroys them and if I wouldn't have seen your reviews I bet you wouldn't have care what happened to me as long as you got your money you're good right!!! Wrong!!!
I hope I CAN help people by telling them: GET YOU ANOTHER LAWYER!!!! he was ready to sell me out, many people can't be wrong about this guy and his reviews are here for a reason. All he cares is the money and I can say that because when I tried to tell him that I'm not going to need him anymore, he said only a judge can take him out of my case but as soon as I told him that I didn't have more money to pay him, he withdrew my case, LMAO.

I will only deal with board certified professionals and Mr. Rippy had that as well as experience. He kept me informed (even gave me his cell number - took calls even on weekend). I questioned him about the sanction and looked it up which resulted from a conflict in representation due a former partner's failure to inform the firm of client representation. He doesn't sugar coat the facts but is aggressive in representing you. I don't want my hand held - I want results. and I got them.

While arrogant & somewhat condescending, a great attorney and that's why we hired Mr. Rippy to represent us - not to be our friend. Not at all cheap, but never nickel & dimed us and I was constantly in contact with him regarding our non-traditional child custody case. He was very transparent in that his focus was in the best interest of the child. He knowledgably guided and swayed us from making brash decisions which could have caused severe anguish to our child and cost substantial amounts of money. In the end, I have and will continue to recommend Felix Rippy.

This will be the 3rd time I have hired Mr. Rippy to represent me in my child custody case. I have a very High Conflict Parent who likes to sue me when he does not get his way, so unfortunately I've had to seek representation on multiple occasions. I initially had another attorney and after $1400.00 I found out how she was truly worthless! Mr. Rippy came highly recommended and I'm grateful to have found him. He is extremely knowledgable and with that comes a bit of arrogance, but he's an attorney, if he wasn't a bit smug I'm not sure I'd trust him nearly as much. He has always steered me in the right direction and if what I wanted wasn't going to be a feasible plan, he told me then and there, rather than trying to milk me for additional money. I for one prefer the brutal honesty as opposed to being told that it will maybe work and then getting slammed in front of a judge and feeling like an idiot. If you are looking to be coddled you may be insulted by his direct manner. He's a busy man and we all, or most of us, have busy lives so I appreciate the direct and matter of fact approach in the shortest amount of time possible. I would highly recommend Mr. Rippy, but not for those who think it is a counseling session, as he's not going to ask you to lay on his couch & complain about your ex for an hour. *As a side note, I am not in a law enforcement/the court/ or in a public servant role, so he does not exclusively serve these individuals better than the general public.*

I hired Felix from a referral from one of his former clients - he thinks he tucks it in his socks - but he is abusive, and has wasted time and money not doing what I had informed him from the start, and all along the way. Law enforcement guys - you go ahead and keep him - maybe he works for you because you don't pull him over when you know you should have- and maybe the court staff use him becuase they have some control and power over him. Drunk drivers he may understand and able to represent better than a child custody case - I fired him after he didn't want to answer issues he screwed up for me - and batted back that he was going to fire me - this happened on more than 2 occasions - I am filing a greivance with the BAR ASSN - and I suggest anyone else who has had him screw them over - to also- he is already on probation with the Bar Association - get a copy of the judgement against him from the Disciplinary Council and see for yourself, I did!
