    I've know Russ for many years and during this time I've continually been impressed with how hard he works to be the best. Not only does he attend more advanced seminars on DUI defense than most other lawyers, he takes it to the next step; he is diligent in figuring out how to take what he learns and apply it to his next client and his next trial. So, while most lawyers will attend a seminar then promptly forget what they learned and keep doing things the same old way, Russ is constantly innovating and improving. This is why I wholeheartedly recommend him for your DUI case.
