Taylor L. Rippe


Taylor L. Rippe has always been interested in the practice of family law, and in building personal connections with her clients. Originally from Valparaiso, Indiana, Taylor completed her B.A. in Psychology at University of Kentucky and earned her Juris Doctor from University of Kentucky’s J. David Rosenberg College of Law. Taylor focuses on complex divorce and family law issues, including contested divorce litigation.

She joined Miller Upshaw Family Law in 2022 as an Attorney. Prior to joining, she was a Family Law Staff Attorney at the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, Tennessee’s largest nonprofit law firm. Taylor spent a lot of her time there assisting survivors of domestic violence.
