Cathy L. Ribble, ACP, Firm Founder

Cathy is the inspiration behind Digital Paralegal Services, LLC®.

Born and raised in the small town of Graham, just ninety miles outside of Fort Worth, I was deep in the heart of Texas.  Springs filled with bluebonnets, falls filled with football – it was home.  Our claim to fame was America’s Largest Town Square.  Located in that square was the Young County courthouse – where I began learning about the intricate workings of the civil litigation process.
