Review Peter Russo

About Me

I have been practicing as an attorney for twelve years in New Jersey.  That time has been split evenly between criminal and municipal court matters and personal injury.


On the criminal side, I have handled hundreds of cases from traffic tickets to first degree indictable crimes in Superior Court and Federal Court.  In the past years, defending DWI cases has become my specialty.  They have become increasingly complex, and the stakes are always getting higher.   In addition to my private practice, I am the Public Defender in the Township of Montclair, and this allows me to handle a variety of matters on a constant basis. 


On the Civil side, I have handled hundreds of cases where I represented clients who had been injured by automobile negligence or at work through no fault of their own. 


I am also a musician, proficient on both the piano and trumpet.  My first CD, titled

In a Sentimental Mood, was released by Drift Street Records in December of 2007
