"Dada's two girls." -- That's what my two-year-old says when I pick her and the baby up at the same time. Along with my wife, those are the only 3 things in the world more important to me than your case.
I had somewhat of a strange upbringing -- the poorest kid in a wealthy suburb -- and here's what I learned. Fairness is the belief that everyone should play by the same rules, but justice is different. Justice is the active participation in making sure that happens.
I believe in justice, and I am passionate about holding accountable folks who break the rules. We can all see, and the statistics bear this out, that our country is more and more out of balance. A smaller and smaller elite group holds more and more of the power. Our local courthouses, I feel, are the only places left where the rest of us can take a stand.
Everyone who walks into our office has a story to tell, if someone will just listen. That's what we do. We use our experience and our resources to level the playing field, give you a voice and tell your story -- so that whoever wronged you HAS to listen. At the very least, they have to listen.

Rip is easily one of the most talented lawyers litigating cases here in Alabama. I think what sets him apart is his ability to connect his clients' stories to the juries that hear about them. He is exceptionally smart, but more than that, he relies on his an unusual desire to do what is right in all circumstances.
