W. R. Rip Andrews
Rip Andrews always thinks of himself as an underdog, which gives him the drive and diligence to represent clients in a prepared and professional way. He does what it takes to level the playing field and hold opponents accountable.
"I want to make a tangible impact on people's lives. At Marsh, Rickard & Bryan, we do our best to right the wrongs done to those at no fault of their own," says Andrews.
Andrews says that when you put the information gathered during the preparation of the case along with a deep understanding of the clients' expectations, the lawyer's job is to craft a story the jurors will understand.
"When I'm in the courtroom, I want to feel as if I'm talking WITH the jury, not TO them."
