Detroit, MI – Jasmine Rippy and Ameena Sheikh are the founders of The Rippy + Sheikh Law Firm PC, a boutique Detroit law firm specializing in criminal defense, family law, probate and estate planning, and are dedicated to providing the highest level of legal services to their clients.
As the Ladies in Law®, Jasmine and Ameena encourage people to work together, challenge traditional expectations, educate others on the law and live life to the fullest.
“We’re all about challenging traditional expectations,” says Rippy. “When we go to court, people don't think we're lawyers. We want to show people that lawyers are not just one stereotype.”
Rippy and Sheikh first met at one of the largest corporate law firms in Detroit before launching their own practice. They both wanted to use their creativity in a fun, personable way to demystify various complexities of the law.
“Even though we're business partners, we really have our strong friendship,” says Rippy. “We want to remain friends and we want to have a great business and be hugely successful together.”
As a 21st century law firm, The Rippy + Sheikh Law Firm PC leverages social media platforms like Instagram and YouTube through their Ladies in Law® brand to be fully engaged with their community.
“As lawyers we have a duty to give back and to educate people about the law and help break down the law so that they can understand it and not be so intimidated by it,” says Rippy.
“The law should be more accessible,” says Sheikh. “It’s about opening people's eyes, minds, hearts to see the law as something that can empower them.”
