Attorneys That Care About Your Best Interest Dedicated to One Client At a Time

Stephen Yip

Associate

As the son and grandson of immigrants from Mexico and China, I can’t help but have great respect for the American justice system, which I firmly believe is the best in the world. I am proud to be a part of that system and am determined to use that system to help those who need it most.

Experience

I grew up in Jacksonville, Florida before attending the University of Miami. After earning my bachelor’s degree, I finally came to Texas attend Baylor Law School. In addition to my studies, I was able to work with agencies such as the McLennan County District Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Coast Guard. During my time at Baylor, I realized that Waco had truly become my home. I was thrilled to join an outstanding firm that would allow me to stay and set down roots in Central Texas. In July 2018, I set those roots even deeper when I married my wife Hailee.

I take great pride in knowing that I have the privilege to wake up every day and serve people who need help, both as an attorney and as a soldier in the Texas State Guard. Between my family’s history of military service and my own time in uniform, I understand the unique challenges faced by servicemembers and veterans. I constantly strive to apply that understanding in working with my military and veteran clients.

For as long as I can remember, hard work has been one of my family’s most closely-held values. I believe that jumping in the trenches and doing honest legal work both in and out of the courtroom is the best way to help my clients. When you come to me, that is exactly what you will get.
