"My ex and I ended things violently, and I needed a lawyer fast. My now-boyfriend went to law school and used his connections to get me in contact with Russell Thaw at Reape-Rickett. My job paid me roughly 15k/year (before taxes), so I wasn't able to afford to pay what all the other lawyers wanted me to pay. Russell worked with me and set me up with an up-and-coming attorney, Lovette Mioni, who was able to accept monthly payments I could actually afford. What I got was someone who was adept in the trade, who worked closely with Russell in all of my affairs, and who did an excellent job keeping things on track and fair. The opposing counsel ended up looking like a fool, because all they cared about was the bottom line and trying to screw me over as much as possible. Lovette, Russell, and the staff at Reape-Rickett helped to keep me safe from these attacks, and made sure that all parties came out feeling like winners. They do a wonderful job at making the divorce process as painless as possible for EVERYONE involved." - Monica

We empower our clients with knowledge and information, enabling them to make reasoned and results-oriented decisions.
What you can expect from The Reape-Rickett Law Firm
The Initial Consultation
Our initial consultations are informative, working encounters– not a sales meeting. To ensure prospective clients get the most out of the consultation, first time callers are directed to intake coordinators who collect the preliminary information required to schedule an appointment. Intake coordinators will also provide guidance on how to prepare for the meeting.
During the meeting, the attorney asks questions designed to elicit information so the attorney can assess the case and provide advice that will allow the client to make informed decisions. This includes whether an attorney needs to be retained, an assessment of potential case outcomes and an estimate of attorney fees based on the information provided to the attorney.
Family Law Focus and Our Level of Expertise
All our attorneys focus on family law and almost always know the opposing counsel and judge. To date, we have handled over 7,500 cases. We invite you to visit our website: DivorceDigest.com, where you will find 225 articles written by the attorneys of our firm. These articles cover virtually every aspect of family law.
We appoint two attorneys and one paralegal or case worker to every case. Thus, every aspect of your case will be properly and thoroughly addressed. A member of your team will either answer your calls immediately or return them promptly, as at least one of the assigned staff is nearly always available.
The more attorneys involved in your case, the greater the likelihood you will be pleased with their efforts. If you only have one attorney, you are stuck with that attorney’s style, beliefs and prejudices. Some may litigate nearly everything, thus unnecessarily driving up fees. Others may only negotiate. Still others may not communicate with opposing counsel to attempt to resolve issues. Because our firm has five attorneys available to collaborate on your case, it virtually guarantees access to the right attorney who can provide the appropriate assistance.
We will share with you our polices and procedures, and our mission statement. You are invited to interview the attorneys and support staff who will be working on your case.
Every task related to your case will be calendared, including requests for information. This enables the attorneys to study progress and attend to every detail. In the rare occurrence where a scheduled action does not take place by its due date, we hold an inquiry. Every action remains in the system until it has been completed.
Our policies and procedures mandate that every attorney here receives case reviews each day. This ensures that all cases are examined at least once a month. When we perceive a problem on a case, we do not delay in meeting to further review the issues and take any actions necessary.
