About me

Russell B. McCormick was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. Mr. McCormick graduated from Duncan U. Fletcher High School in 2001.

During law school, Mr. McCormick was a member of Florida Coastal's renowned Moot Court Honor Board.

After returning from Italy, Mr. McCormick began defending the rights of the accused in Duval County as a Certified Legal Intern for the Public Defender's Office.

The knowledge, experience, and skill Mr. McCormick has gained working on both sides of criminal cases as an Assistant Public Defender and as an Assistant State Attorney, and the knowlegde and refined skills gained via membership and participation in the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and The National College of DUI Defense, provides a unique advantage in the defense of your rights.
