Daniel J. Ripper

Dan grew up in the small town of Murphy, North Carolina. From there he went to the University of Notre Dame getting a degree in English and government. He then went to the University of Tennessee where he graduated with a law degree in 1992. Upon graduation Dan found work with the predecessor firm of Luther-Anderson, PLLP working as a civil attorney for insurance matters. While he enjoyed that work then and still enjoys it now, Dan always felt that there was more to the practice of law than simply working for institutional clients. He found he was correct when he started handling criminal matters for real people. Nothing compares to the feeling of helping someone charged with a crime get a successful resolution to their case.

In addition to the satisfaction of helping people charged with crimes, Dan also enjoys protecting individuals from the police who are often more than willing violate the rights of otherwise innocent people in their desire to make a case. While many seem to think that the police are always right, Dan works hard to challenge the abuse of police power and protect ordinary people from unscrupulous officers.

If you have been charged with a crime or have had your rights violated by the police, contact someone who will care as much about your case as you do. Let Dan Ripper be your criminal defense lawyer.
