Matt is attentive, patient, and accommodating. He provides excellent counsel and has the clients best interest at the forefront of his agenda. I would not only highly recommend him but would definitely retain him again should the need arise. Thank you Matt for a job well done!
Matt got back to me very quickly, heard me out, and gave some good advice. He wasn't going to be able to make it to my upcoming date, which was only a day or so away, and didn't want to over extend himself and not be able to deliver, which the honesty was very much appreciated given my experience with other attorneys. Thank you!
In the case that someone needs a lawyer, I would recommend Matt twenty times out of ten he is that good. He completely exceeded my expectations as a lawyer as well as mentoring me through the whole process. I cannot thank him enough for the time and energy he put into helping me.
Mr. Russell handled my case diligently and efficiently. He offered his advice and always did what I asked. Highly recommended.
Matt did a great job getting my ticket reduced to a non-moving violation and saving me points and an increase in insurance premiums. I contacted my insurance company before hiring Matt and found the increase in premiums over the next 3-years would exceed the costs of hiring him to help get my ticket reduced. Matt came recommended from a family member who also hired Matt help with a speeding ticket. I hope I don't need you again Matt but if I get another ticket/s please stay by the phone!
Without getting too specific with my case I was looking at career ending criminal charges. Matt was not the first attorney I went to but he was definitely the last. From the very minute I talked to him and explained my situation to him I was completely confident and sure he was the right choice. Matt was upfront with me and let me know that he doesn't typically represent the kind of case that I brought to him but that he knew I was being honest with him and that he would be proud to represent me. My situation was dragged out over a year and a half. Matt got me the absolute best outcome possible. His exact words to me before we went in to get the final word from the judge was, "now Cody, you can't kiss me." This was easily the most stressful thing I have ever endured, to include combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. No doubt Matt Russell is the best, most fair, honest, hard working attorney in all of the Ozarks. If I could hire him for you I would. Your search for legal representation in criminal defense is over. I would recommend him over the other "Big Names" in Springfield. Thank you Matt Russell for ensuring my lively hood, career, and life was not destroyed by this!
I never thought I would find myself needing a divorce attorney, however I did and Matt was there to answer every question I had during this stressful time. Matt was very professional and I couldn't ask for a better attorney.
Extremely happy with the professionalism and courtesy I received from Atty Russell. He was always willing to listen to my concerns. During a very scaring and stressful time, I felt that I could ask any question and that Matt would give me advice and guidance that he honestly felt was in my best interest.
After I received my tickets (This was my first offense) for the above charges, I found Matthew after looking over reviews of quite a few lawyers. I felt comfortable with him, as he is very personable. He really got to know the person I was, and told me all about his family and children. He also didn’t make me feel like he was looking down at me for any of my charges. He truly wanted to help me because he knew I saw it as a mistake I had made, and I’m trying to make it right. He was adamant about wanting to help people who are trying to help themselves, and not someone trying to scheme the system. After appearing in court for the past year, he got everything cleared off my record as long as I did my 40 hours of community service and paid court costs. (There was a time that the judge he stood in front of wasn’t going to let me keep it off my record, and he wasn’t ok with that so he got in with a new judge who was more understanding) He truly did everything he could and wasn’t going to settle for less. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else but him!!
I've dealt with a few attorney's over the past 20 years for various reasons. Speeding tickets, divorce, child custody, etc. Let's be honest, most of the time when you are dealing with an attorney... you are in HIGH stress mode. Not an ideal situation for making life changing decisions in the world of law where most of us lack the knowledge to know what can and can not happen.
This is where a GOOD attorney is important. Matthew is professional throughout the entire process. His focus, strategic planning, and ability to calm your nerves is absolutely what you need. You can just tell he strives to make that extra effort so many other attorneys fall short on. Make the call, set up an appointment, decide for yourself... you will not be disappointed. His balance between his dedication to his client's needs and his own family is truly inspiring. As an added bonus, over the 14 month process of working with him on two cases; I found his entire law firm team to be equally impressive. Your search is truly over.
