Hello, I’m Paul Rippel. I believe a lawyer should be a problem solver, and that’s what I strive to do.  That attitude allows me to provide effective legal service in estate planning, family or personal matters and business.

One thing I have learned is to listen.  You can really make a difference when you do.

Though I have received professional awards and served as Commissioner and President of the Idaho State Bar, nothing is as rewarding as a sincere thank you from a client.

When you consult with me, I try to give you real value - sound advice without exaggeration or fluff.

Why I Practice Law

I attended law school due to a keen academic interest in the law. I enjoy the law now because of the opportunity to help people.

Fun Fact

I actually won an appeal by arguing that the original decision just made up facts to get a specific result instead of relying on the evidence.
