Rip Biggs Attorney at Law
----TWO THUMBS UP----Rip is the next Johnny Cochran. He will fight for you tooth and nail if you are innocent, and if you are guilty (and don't lie to the man, it's in your best interest) he will get you THE BEST OUTCOME PERIOD. My original charges had a federal mandatory sentencing of 3-5 years, but Rip got my charges dropped to a class A misdemeanor-WITH NO JAIL TIME. I would recommend this man to any individual. If you want the best of the best, hire this man!!! Rip was so dedicated to me individually, after his job was done he still followed up with me to make sure things were going good for me. This guy actually gives a damn, and he will be 100% honest with you from the beginning. If he guarantees you something, believe him. I know it's hard to do when you're facing serious time, but this man is one of the elite attorneys in Chattanooga. I'm pursuing my law degree, and I hope that Rip will allow me to learn from him.

I have had the privilege of being represented by Mr. Biggs in the recent months and I will have to say that impressed would be and understatement. Not only did he actually listen to me as a client, as opposed to benig closed minded and demanding, through his research and diligence, I have been given a judgement that has not happened in Hamilton County before. He has true passion for his work, which is helping people better themselves. I would recommend Attorney Biggs to any friend or family member that ever needs any sort of representation at all, and am pleased beyond measure with his representation of myself.

Rip went well above and beyond the norm in my case. he was very consistent ...very patient......and diligent in his efforts to get the job done. I had a very extensive driving record to cipher through to be able to get my license back. it took well over a year and Rip was well underpaid and over worked in my opinion. I would recommend him to anyone !! Thanks Rip for all your hard work and determination......

Ed Schaerer and his staff are true professionals. They helped me out of a bind and secured the sell of 60 acres. He came highly recommended and now I know why. He told me upfront although he was the owner of the company he was not a licensed surveyor, but he had one on staff. The timely manner and price was very reasonably..................... J Davenport

Truly a credit to his profession. When you need a lawyer there are many choices. Finding the one that takes the time to know you, your situation, and the best course of action is a difficult task. As a veteran, I highly endorse Rip as your choice in difficult times. There are no certainties in troubled times, but I am certain you need Rip in your corner.

The did an excellent job of helping me file and obtain a claim with my disability and Erisa claim. Attorney Ellis was very patient, gave great explanations of all proceedings, and helped in every way to provide support and knowledge for my situation. Would highly recommend him and the firm he works for and with. Thank you for all you did.

I was recently charged with something, I don't believe I deserved, the D.A. disagreed, and continued with the chargers. Rip pulled all the strings and got me out of the charge. I was very happy with the end result.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
