5.0 stars 11 totalReview A. Smith
In 2014, my daughter was arrested for a criminal offense. This was her first offense, and she was scared and worried about the outcome. We decided to call Mr. A. Russell Smith to see if he could help us in any way and he agreed to take her case. Throughout the deposition and court hearings, we were extremely impressed by his knowledge and professionalism in the courtroom. He was always “at the top of his game” and made us feel at ease. I cannot tell you how happy we were to have him by our side. This case did drag on for over a year, only because he would never give up on my daughter. In the end, he succeeded in winning her case, and we could not have been more relieved and grateful. I have known and worked with many attorneys over the past 25 years, and Mr. Smith is the most proficient, prepared and determined attorney I have ever worked with. If you are ever in need of a defense attorney, I would strongly recommend you call Mr. A. Russell Smith for a consultation.
Russell is definitely the one you want to hire if you're facing any type of criminal charges or a situation involving family law. My situation was complex and involved both of those aspects, so I needed top tier legal representation, which Russell certainly provided very well. I'm a college educated , middle aged family man and business professional with several years of experience in my field working in a family business. I had never been charged with a crime prior to be charged with battery in Duval county last year. My case was rather unique and complex, because the incident surrounding my arrest occurred at my place of business and involved another family member who was determined to the end to see me punished to the full extent possible. I believed at the time and still do now that I was set up, so basically I was facing a very difficult case with a bleak outcome for me that had far reaching implications for my future. Russell will certainly give it you straight from the start, which is crucial when hiring any attorney. Never attempt to navigate our complex legal system without a qualified and experienced advocate like Russell at your side. If you're honest with him and work with him, you won't find more qualified legal representation anywhere else. Thanks to Russell, I finally ended up with the most favorable outcome possible in my case. It's an understatement to say he's worth every penny he will charge you!
First and foremost I want to thank Mr. Smith for my legal counsel. Going through legal issues is never a fun experience. Russell gave me the peace of mind that everything was going to be ok.I got the impression that Mr. Smith is very respected in and out of the courtroom. He knows what he is doing.He will always take time out of his day to re-assure you that your case will be handled appropriately. The few times I was not able to talk with Mr. Smith, his staff, especially Cynthia,was more than willing to give me any updates or info I needed to know.Thank you.I am living my life now more aware of the legal system and how to avoid being on the wrong side of it. The last time I saw Mr. Smith he gave me some good advice on that. He also told me it was "My pleasure" to help and serve me. I will never forget you Russel. Thank you very,very much. -Carey

I have used Russell and his other lawyers in his office for about 5 years. Russel helped me fix my life and fought for me every step of the way. This is the best lawyer you can find in Jacksonville. He has fought every case and got a decision in my favor 100% of the time. He is the most trustworthy and good lawyer.(the first time I used him he was hard to get ahold of and that worried me, that was because he is very busy but once you step into the court room, contacting him doesn't matter, he has your back and knows everything he needs to to help you with your case.I would have never fixed my life and got it on the right track without Russell helping me get on the right path. My family can't thank him enough.

Great attorney!! While looking for a second opinion this attorney took the time to explain all the available options while at the same time being respectful of my current attorney. Not the kind of attorney that is there just to get a new client regardless of what shoes he needs to step over, but rather the kind of attorney who is ethical, respectful and overall helpful and very professional and knowledgable!!
I recommend this attorney!

I can't say enough. You don't get what you pay for...you get much more! Mr. Smith took on a tough case for me and, hands down, won without breaking a sweat. Prepared, honest, experienced, to the point, no messing around. I think everyone should have such a great attorney. You can't go wrong.

From the initial phone call that was placed to Russell Smith I was definately under the impression that he meant business and showed complete interest in the case. Upon the hiring of Russell Smith he handled the case with hard work and diligence, resulting in a fantastic and positive turnout. When a personal attack happens to an individual, then it escalades to involving false arrest, false imprisionment and accusations which leads to involving the entire family, an individual really expects the best from his hired legal help. Expect professionalism, hard work and most of all, know that your legal representation by Russell Smith will be handled the way you deserve it to be handled, thank you Russell!!!!

He's not cheap, but he could walk into any court room and convince ANY judge the sky is falling. Watch his work, he can do the impossible. Don't believe me, go talk to him.
