I retained The Russell’s Law Firm after being let down and disappointed by another attorney. I had a complex detailed case involving several jurisdictions and time frames. Chris Russell put me at ease and instilled confidence in me from the minute we met. He looked me in the eye and listened intently. (No small feat for some lawyers). He immediately grasped the nuances and complexities of the case and poured his time, energy and expertise into it. I wouldn’t hesitate to retain him again. I highly recommend the Russell’s Law Firm!!Daniel S.
