About Ringger Law

Louis W. Ringger

The Law Offices of Louis W Ringger were founded by Bill Ringger in 1981. They were originally located in Scotts Hill, Tennessee. Bill was living at that time in Memphis and making frequent trips to the Tennessee River at the southern end of Decatur County. As his presence and time increased in the County, he began to provide legal services in Decatur and the adjoining Counties. During this period he was also working in Memphis and commuting between both locations. In the latter part of 1981, seeing that it was not feasible to maintain a presence at two spread-out locations he chose to build his legal practice in Scotts Hill, with the support of the local community. In 1982, Bill moved to Decaturville, and associated with James and Jim Smith, finding it an advantage to be located in the County seat.

About this time Bill was called to active duty in the U.S. Air Force. He served two years at a missile base on the northern tier of the United States and spent two years at the Headquarters of Strategic Air Command, Omaha, Nebraska. He completed his term of active duty as a Captain and eventually was Honorably retired in 1992. Coming from active military duty, Bill returned to his legal practice in Decaturville, Tennessee. He practiced there until he moved his practice to Jackson, Tennessee. Bill arrived at the current location of his office in downtown Jackson, in 2004, and currently maintains a general practice with the aid of three trained professional paralegals with emphasis on consumer bankruptcy, personal injury, criminal law and wills and estate planning. He is the Municipal Judge in Decaturville, and has held a position as tax attorney for Perry County, Tennessee for over ten years. He is a member in the Jackson-Madison County Bar Association, the Memphis-Shelby County Bar Association, Tennessee Bar Association, and the American Bar Association. He is also a member of several professional Bankruptcy legal Associations, the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys and the American Bankruptcy Institute. Finally, Bill is qualified as a Rule 31 mediator of the Supreme Court of Tennessee.

Bill is a native West Tennessean, born and raised in Memphis and Fayette County. His father was an employee of Ford Motor Co. for nearly fifty years and his mother a paralegal in Memphis. He attended public school in Memphis and graduated with a Bachelor degree in Engineering and eventually a Juris Doctor degree from then Memphis State University. He later attended the University of Southern California at Los Angeles pursuing graduate studies in Public Administration. Bill resides with his wife, a retired Registered Nurse in Parsons, Tennessee, and visits frequently with his daughter and her husband with their two children in Nashville. His son resides in Knoxville, where he practices law with a local firm. Bill enjoys outdoor activities on the Tennessee River and spending time with his family.
