It is my pleasure to introduce our next blogger and one of my favorite people, Don Van Riper, who we affectionately call “Rip.”
|Donald Van Riper|
Rip possesses extensive experience in the workers’ compensation arena and brings a comprehensive view of this practice area to the firm. Prior to joining Collins & Lacy, he was appointed by Governor David Beasley to a six-year term on the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission, so he brings a unique perspective to our practice. Rip’s reputation in the courtroom and professional standing among his peers has earned him the honor of being named a Best Lawyer in America, one of the oldest and most respected peer-review publications in the legal profession.
Having grown up in Greenville, Rip has deep roots in this community and is integrally involved with the Greenville Symphony and numerous other civic organizations. Free symphony tickets and art appreciation education are just a few of the fringe benefits of working with Rip! I know you will enjoy his wit and creative approach to the practice of law. He starts blogging Tuesday.
