About Russell

Learn Russell’s areas of practice.

I'm a general civil trial lawyer with over 20 years in practice. I handle domestic, business and general civil litigation.  I also handle corp. matters (entity formation and coroprate governance), intellectual property,  and bankruptcy.  In the past several years, I've handled a broad range of cases and have secured excellent results for hundreds of clients.  Litigation is challenging but can be rewarding - when you win. And I rarely lose.  In my domestic cases, I always take a reasonable, measured approach - do everything I can to settle - try to keep the drama and expense to a minimum.  But if you are forced to try your case, I have the expereince and skills to win. To check out all my qualifications, results, and client testimonials, you can visit my divorce specific website or my older site .  Please give me a call at or send me an email at  Thanks!

Gave me so much peace
Russell helped me immensely with my divorce. I was very scared about losing my two dogs in the divorce and I told Russell that all I wanted was them. He did that and much more. He gave me the peace to calm down and trust in him that everything would work out. Just like he said it did.

If you want a BULL DOG he is the man
As the title says Mr.Hippe is the Bull Dog you want in your corner. If I had found him when my divorce started my divorce would not have costed me so much money and it wouldn't have taken so long to get done. Mr. Hippe took my case after it got messed up from my first attorney. Mr. Hippe took my case and turned it around for me. He fought like the Bull Dog that he is, my exs attorney was a bully and Hippe put him back on the porch where he belonged. I won the most important item from my divorce and that is my daughter thanks to him. Trust people don't waste your time looking elsewhere This Georgia Bull Dawg is man you want. I will never be able to say thank you enough.

If he can do it for me he can do it for you
I recently acquired Mr. Hippies services for a very complex case. He handled it perfectly. He works fast, always remains professional and makes you feel like your case is of the utmost importance.

Good Choice
Russell was very trustworthy and a great resource as I navigated a very difficult time. He gives good advice and generally looks out for your best interests. His fees are very reasonable as well.

This guy ia SUPERLAWYER!
Mr Hippe is Amazing!! I was caught odd guard by my wife's divorce filing and served papers on a saturday afternoon. Like any normal man i went into a panic. I contacted Mr. Hippe on a sunday morning at 7:15 am and he answered my call. He spoke with me for nearly 20 minutes. The guy works round the clock for his clients. He is compassionate and is an amazing attorney. He is extremely thorough and detailed in his craft. Due to his work ethic, my divorce turned out to be a lot less complicated than it could have been. He was able to get me everything I needed and most importantly he got me joint custody of my child. I highly recommend Mr Hippe in any divorce case. This guy is the real deal. He is tactful and strategic. He works diligently for his clients and not to mention he keeps cost to a minimum and was always cognitive of my wallet. He is a SUPERLAWYER!

Great Person & Lawyer
Russell did an amazing job on my case, he treats you as if you are a close friend of his. He is really helpful when it comes to payment, if you're in trouble he understands and can work it out with you. I give him a 5/5, he charges fairly and his work is evident, he is understanding, smart and charming. Everything you would want in a divorce lawyer! He helped me through my divorce and later on a contempt. You can tell he is an experienced lawyer, I would use him again.

My divorce attorney ..
Excellent attorney and very knowledgeable in divorce. Couldn't have done it without him! Big bang for the buck and would recommend him to anyone going through a divorce

Rusty is the Only Attorney I will ever use!
Rusty took care of my initial divorce trial - which he won - and I unfortunately had to use him in a post divorce contempt and modification action - which he concluded favorably. He does a great job, is fair in his billing, and I would never use any other attorney. Again, I give him the highest recommendation.

Divorce Work
I hired rusty to review a divorce agreement in a no contest divorce case. He provided me with all the necessary information and was looking out for my best interests throughout the entire process. He was always reachable and was very trustworthy. I would highly recommend him to anyone going through a divorce

Good Personable and Will Protect You
Russell provided me exceptional service and counsel. He helped me win one of the most important principles in justice, the right to free association. He had the knowledge and skill to legally transfer both private and government retirement accounts and protect financial assets.

Recommendation for Rusty Hippe
I have known Rusty for over 20 years and he has provided a wide range of legal services for me throughout the years. He is knowledgeable about all kinds of law and is very professional in his practice. He has also become a friend of mine personally. I would recommend Rusty to anybody.

Rusty Hippe is an EXCELLENT divorce attorney.
After interviewing several divorce attorneys, I hired Rusty to represent me. I can unequivocally say, that I made the right decision. My case ultimately came down to a division of marital assets, as there were no children resulting from the marriage. The other attorneys I interviewed simply positioned a 50/50 division of assets as the best I could do, but Rusty was keen to pursue a more favorable division of assets based upon my wife's conduct. In addition, all the other attorneys wanted a large up front retainer. Rusty, however, was very cost conscious and always kept an eye towards minimizing attorney's fees, which I must say was quite refreshing. As a direct result of Rusty's skill and experience, my case was ultimately settled without going to trial. Over the course of my divorce, not only did Rusty provide excellent legal counsel, but he also provided me with much needed emotional support. My wife's divorce filing came as a shock to me, and I was going through a very tough time, but I always knew I had his shoulder to lean on. I hired an attorney and made a great friend. I would vehemently recommend Rusty to anyone needing a skilled attorney to represent them in their divorce case.
