Russell Henry Hippe, III
Russell Hippe has practiced law in the Atlanta area for over twenty (20) years. He is a graduate of the University of Georgia and the University of Georgia School of Law.
Mr. Hippe is approved to practice before all state and superior courts in the State of Georgia, the Northern District of Georgia, the Middle District of Georgia, the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court.

In recognition of his professional accomplishments, Mr. Hippe has received invitations to speak at ICLE functions sponsored by the State Bar of Georgia, has spoken at the State Bar of Georgia on the Georgia Rules of Evidence, has maintained a ranking of 10/10 on AVVO for years, and has been recognized by numerous professional organizations, including the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, the National Advocates, and Lawyers of Distinction, as being one of the top domestic attorneys in the State of Georgia.
While this professional recognition is appreciated, Mr. Hippe is most proud of the outstanding results he has obtained for the hundreds of clients he has represented over the past ten (10) years.
Although Mr. Hippe's extensive trial experience is a major asset to his domestic and other clients, his broad professional background, which includes real estate, corporate law, and bankruptcy, and his business experience is often an asset as well. For example, in 1997, Mr. Hippe started the firm Russell H. Hippe & Associates, P.C. with an emphasis on residential real estate closings. From 1997 until 2007, Mr. Hippe’s firm handled over twenty thousand closings totalling over two billion dollars in gross loan value. Representing the top local and national lenders, prior to the onset of the mortgage crisis, Mr. Hippe had built his firm into one of the top residential closing practices in the Atlanta area.
Prior to starting his own practice in 1997, he worked with attorney Carl Stimmel, a gentleman and Emory Law graduate, in Atlanta, Georgia from 1994 until 1997, focusing on both real estate and litigation. Prior to working with Mr. Stimmel, Mr. Hippe clerked for two prestigious firms, Drew Eckl and Franham in Atlanta, and Turner, Padgett, Graham and Laney in Columbia, South Carolina.
