I was very pleased with the overall service I was given by Me. Russell. I trusted that she held my best interest. In both cases her services were procured. If it is a solid lawyer you want at a reasonable price, than look no further than Kristen Russell.

I recently discovered there was something on my criminal record from about 17 years ago that was inaccurate. For a variety of reasons, I needed this off of my record. I opted to pursue an expungement. I live out of state and needed a local attorney to address this issue for me. I have never retained a criminal attorney before and was unsure about what to expect. Ms. Russell was impressive. She was always accessible. She provided me with a pretty solid timeline and shared with me any expected or unexpected obstacles that I may encounter. I wasn't left in the dark about anything. Since this was occurring over the holidays, I was concerned with delays. No need for those worries. Ms. Russell obtained my expungement without experiencing any obstacles at all. She was professional, responsive and efficient. I was relieved to have the situation resolved. I would highly recommend her professional services to anyone.

From the beginning of my ordeal, Ms. Russell worked to calm my concerns and guide me towards a desired outcome. Her knowledge of the law and relationships inside the court system led to an outcome that exceeded my expectations. I was incorrectly cited to begin with but felt I did not have any recourse beyond pleading and accepting my fate. Ms. Russell felt I had a chance of a different outcome and true to her word, got the citation remanded down to a lower violation - saving me time, anguish and money. If ever in a similar situation I will again call upon the services of Ms. Russell. She was exceptional from the beginning.

I was able to full resolve my problem remotely with no issues whatsoever. I never once needed to meet with Ms. Russell. She was able to take care of everything. I would recommend her in a heartbeat

Kristin is a really excellent lawyer. She will not make empty promises or guarantees. She kept me up tot date with everything that was happening. I never imagined that I would be able to trust a lawyer this much. At first I thought that she seemed a bit young and assumed that she probably did not have much experience. But she quickly proved me wrong by resolving my case in a timely manner. I highly recommend her especially because of her trustworthiness, professionalism, and above all, her sense of respect.

An issue arose where I had been incorrectly identified in regards to a felony charge. Mrs. Russell was extremely quick to pass along any new and pertinent information as it was identified. This resulted in me being able to provide documentation proving my innocence. I would definitely recommend her services and would be happy to have her represent me in the future, should it be necessary.

From the moment I called Kristin she immediately returned my call and set up an appointment. At my first meeting she knew the details surrounding my case and possible outcomes as to what i was facing and what alternatives i had into resolving my case that would be favorable to me (the client). She kept me informed, made calls to the appropriate people so that she knew and i knew exactly what may happen in court. At this point my case has gone thru the mediation process and i am looking forward to a favorable outcome for me.

Excellent lawyer. She kept me informed. She is honest. This is unbelievable, but when the county attorney let the proposal go through so quickly Ms. Russell refunded me half the money I had already paid. She did this because she felt she did not deserve the amount I paid. She is honest and honorable.

Kristin was an excellent attorney helping us in our criminal case. She explained things to us in terms we could understand. She kept us informed on court dates, filings, etc. I would recommend her and/or her partners at the firm for any case you might encounter.

Going to court for a legal matter, your fault or not is not a pleasent experience. My attorney was prompt, professional and most importantly approachable. She helped me not only with representation, but had my case dismissed. I am forever grateful to have my background clean and clear for the future. I have and will always highly recommended Kristin to represent all of my legal needs. Sincerley, Amberly Emery.
