2020-2021 TYLA Elections
TYLA PRESIDENT-ELECT CANDIDATE
JEANINE NOVOSAD RISPOLI
Jeanine Novosad Rispoli was inspired to be a lawyer from an early age after learning of her adoption. Adopted in San Antonio and raised in Houston and Sugar Land, she graduated from Baylor University and Baylor Law School before returning to Houston to practice. Rispoli moved back to Waco to join a large firm. Her passion for helping families led to opening Rispoli Law Firm in 2018. Rispoli’s goal is to help families build a better future, paying back the help her adoptive and biological families received. She enjoys volunteering through the Baylor Law Veterans Clinic and pro bono adoptions.
Rispoli is the TYLA District 9 director and McLennan County Young Lawyers Association president-elect. She co-chaired the TYLA project Texas Courts for Texas Veterans, facilitated partnerships with the Texas Access to Justice Foundation and Baylor Law School to complete TCTV’s videos without any budget, and served on the Local Affiliates and Attorney Wellness committees. She is a State Bar of Texas Local Bar Services Committee member, Junior League of Waco secretary, Texas Bar Foundation fellow, LeadershipSBOT graduate, and frequent mock trial judge. Rispoli speaks regularly on panels to law students and young lawyers and mentors law and pre-law students.
She and her husband, Stephen, enjoy time outdoors with their Labrador, Khaleesi.
