Stephen Rispoli earned his political science degree from Baylor University in 2009 and his J.D. from Baylor Law School in 2012.

Before coming to law school, Stephen worked as a District Director for former Texas State Representative Carol Kent. He describes his time working in the 81st Legislature as the experience that fostered his interest in the law. During law school, Stephen was active in student organizations, serving as the Executive President for the Student Bar Association, and Justice for the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity.

One of his most rewarding experiences in law school was interning for Federal Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Manske. While working for Judge Manske, Stephen learned a great deal about Federal procedure and the judicial process. During Practice Court, Stephen and his P.C. Partner Kelly Hodge thoroughly enjoyed putting together their trial strategies and trying cases.

In his free time, Stephen enjoys hunting, fishing, sailing, skeet shooting, and working on his 1968 Ford Torino.
