About Sandy

Sandy brings passion and dedication to the fight with every person she helps.  She doesn’t have cases, she has client’s stories and she’s invested and she cares.  Sandy intended to be a medical doctor.  She has a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Chemistry and was working as a clinical laboratory scientist when her life changed forever—she lost her daughter in a motor vehicle accident.  She knows the pain of loss and grieving.  When she was faced with the medical and the funeral bills that she could not pay, and an insurance company that was treating her unfairly, she turned to a lawyer for help.  She learned then the importance of having a fighter on your side.

Sandy has dedicated her life to helping those seriously injured in accidents and the families of those killed.  She uses her life and professional experience to advise and support her clients during the legal process.  She is dedicated to getting the justice that her clients deserve and making the community a safer place for families, especially children.  She will go to trial when justice demands and will ask the jurors for what is right.

Sandy is a dedicated daughter, sister, wife and mother.  She enjoys spending time with family.  She likes big family gatherings and socializing with friends.  It is important for her to make lasting memories with her children.  She especially enjoys traveling and experiencing other cultures.  She is an aspiring kite surfer.

Chris and Sandy stand out as being exceptionally organized and professional lawyers. I look for people who know the law well, and are capable of getting things done on time – these guys do both. They are both excellent writers who understand how the system works, and what needs to be done.

What stands out about this law firm, however, is that the Russells genuinely care about their clients and cases. This isn’t just something they do to make money. I’ve seen both of them agonize over how to best help their clients, and it’s obvious that helping others is this law firm’s salient goal.

These are wonderful lawyers, and even better human beings – could not recommend them more strenuously.
