Powerful advocate and wonderful resource
Kim is an excellent partner to have at your side during a divorce. She truly believes in a collaborative divorce being the best path for all involved but is also more than competent to wage battle with a more aggressive and litigious adversary. There were many times when my ex and her lawyer were aggressive and unreasonable and Kim's advice to stay the course and be reasonable saved me not only loads of stress and escalating tensions, but also loads of legal wrangling and fees. I'd highly recommend Kim to anyone that wants a partner by their side that will reasonably and rationally help you navigate what it typically a trying time.

Everything You Could Ask For
I began my journey of collaborative divorce with another attorney who was not the right fit for me. I was working with a counselor during the collaborative divorce process, and he knew my frustrations with my current attorney so he recommended I meet with Attorney Ripp. Immediately after my first meeting with her, I felt like we had a plan and my stress level was cut in half! Attorney Ripp doesn’t waste time with getting things done. She leaves no room for procrastinating from other parties and is relentless when it comes to unanswered questions. I never waited long for a response after sending emails or calling the office for an appointment, responses were practically instant. Attorney Ripp is professional, incredibly intelligent, determined, detail-oriented and unbelievably efficient. She was flexible, patient, respectful and kind to me. Having an attorney that has all of these amazing traits, made one of the darkest times of my life as easy as it could possibly be. And for that, I am eternally grateful.

Fantastic lawyer
Kim was absolutely wonderful in assisting with my divorce. She was honest, nonjudgmental, responsive, and smart. She helped me get what I deserved through this process. I couldn’t have done it without her. She made me feel safe and like family.

Highly Recommend!!!
I made the mistake of not using a lawyer when I got divorced. I was starting to pay the price, then I hired Kim. While I may not have liked everything she's had to say, I have always respected her opinion and guidance. Especially when the things I have dealt with are as emotional as they are. If you want someone who will always have your back and guide you in the right direction with the law.... She's your gal!!!

Best Divorce Lawyer in town!
Kim was extremely helpful in all aspects of my divorce. She took time to explain several options to me in language I could understand! She was always EXTREMELY quick to answer any questions I have, often responding within minutes. I would recommend Kim to anyone who needs a divorce attorney they can trust and rely on to take care of you.

Best Attorney!
I met with Kim about my Divorce, and I knew right away that she would be Great! Kim is very knowledgeable, and put my mind at ease during first meeting. If I had questions, she (or her staff) responded back very quickly. Kim was referred to me from multiple people, and I couldn't have been more satisfied with how everything ended. Something that sets Kim apart, is that she genuinely 'cares'. I didn't feel like I was just another client. I wish nobody had to ever go through a divorce, but if you do, I highly recommend Kim and her Staff! Thank You Again Kim.... Ron

Collaborative Divorce
I met with Kim discuss a divorce. She is very knowledgeable in the area of Collaborative Divorce. When I went in for my consultation, she answered all of my questions, even before I asked them. Any time I had a question, I just emailed her and I received a response within a few hours. If I needed to see her, she made time. She was so nice and understanding. She made sure that I understood everything fully. She and her staff were great to work with. I felt so comfortable with her. I knew she was on my side the entire time!

Attorney Ripp is very sensitive and is helpful with everything I needed and continue needing. She makes it easy when preparing a will and all that implies.

The best of the Best
When I was going to need an attorney for my divorce I didn't have to think twice about who I should get, Kim and her assistants were great and very detailed on what to do or not to do. I would highly recommend Kim as she did a great job handling my divorce!

I was not the typical client. After our initial consultation, Kim understood what I was looking for in legal representation. Kim was very professional. She knows the law and was able to offer valuable advice. Reasonable retainer fee and a competitive hourly rate.
