Posted by Paul
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.

He is the best lawyer I have ever had! I had another attorney drop the ball on a case and transfer to another area. Matthew picked up the case and smoothed things over for me, he was a lifesaver. He was quick and delivered even more than I could have expected. I would highly recommend him to anyone and he would be my first choice if I ever needed an attorney in the future.

This was my first time looking or needing a lawyer and I def needed one! I called and talked to about 10 before I spoke with Matthew Russell and he was the first and only lawyer who made me feel like everything was going to be ok and confident that he would work for me and be on my side. Working with him has been amazing! He seriously is as good as he talks, he is just the greatest person you would ever want representing you. I highly recommend him and anyone would be a fool to choose anyone over him. He seriously keeps his word and works for his clients!

Matt was really just fantastic throughout the months I interacted with him. On the professional side, he always kept me informed of what was happening (or not happening), always replied to my email inquiries in what seemed like seconds, and his demeanor (as well as the demeanor of his partner and their paralegal) was encouraging, supportive, and non-condemning. On the personal side, when I was feeling depressed or anxious over my potential resolution, he always attempted to ease my state of mind, without over-assuring me of anything he couldn’t deliver (And for me, he delivered way more than he assured). He is a lawyer that wants to fight for you, even when you are too scared, or too embarrassed to want to fight for yourself, which is really the best kind of lawyer to have. So if you are on the fence… get over it.

Matt was very professional and personable when he helped my wife and me with a legal problem a few months back. He explained our legal position and why it was worse than we thought, without making either of us feel small. The problem took a few months to resolve but Matt did a good job of keeping us informed, which helped keep our worrying to a minimum. The first name that comes to my mind, for anyone looking for a lawyer that will listen and then give straight, considered answers, is Matthew Russell.

I got a DWI and during our first meeting he asked me what I wanted from him; obviously to get an SIS. Matt was straightforward and upfront about the worst case scenario, because I'd blown a very high BAC and was incredibly honest with the cop. Even still, he never made me feel judged for my discretion and was always respectful. Even when I was balling in his office he kept a light hearted demeanour and set me at ease. He was always reachable by phone and e-mail, even returning my e-mails outside of business hours. I don't plan on continuing my criminal activity, but if God forbid, I'd hire him in a heartbeat! He was in my corner the entire time in and outside of the court room, and low and behold, I was given an SIS! He is a good, honest man and a damn good lawyer.

A good caring lawyer may not be able to give you thier whole life and time but they can definitely give your life back to you when you think you have lost it. There is no better luxury and stress reliver than having a good, caring, knowledgeable, and genuine lawyer on your side. Matthew Russell was that for me. I spoke to four lawyers befor I spoke to Matt. Everyone else wanted to get right down to business and money was their number one focus. When i walked into Matthews office he first brought me a coffee, we talked about our days and life, my concerns, and just made me feel very comfortable. Then when i told him my story he truely cared about me and my well being and happiness. After my first meeting with Matt, I knew he was the lawyer for me. Every individual has at least one person in his or her life who leaves a great influence on thier lives; Matthew is one of those people. He is also a husband and father so he could understand where I was coming from and could relate to my worries. My divorce is now final and matthew delivered everything he promised me he would and the things he could not deliver me he was up front and honest that it would be very difficult to be rewarded to me. So in other words he is not a BSer like most lawyers. And even though my case is now over Matt still checks in on me from time to time just to make sure im doing well. I would 100% recomind Matthew Russell for any case you may have. I am forever greatful for the encouragement not only in my case but as a friend.

Matt was extremely helpful in aiding my husband and I with getting our affairs in order before our first child was born. He assisted us with establishing advanced directives and a trust and walked us through the entire process of understanding and determining who would manage our finances and care for our little girl should something happen to us. He kept us informed all along the process of where we stood and what to expect, making the entire process much more manageable and comfortable for us. Matt is a reputable, professional attorney with excellent knowledge of the legal system and processes. We would work with him again and would recommend anyone else to do the same.

Not all attorneys are the same, Matthew Russell proves that.
Matt is extremely professional, very articulate, and empathetic to his clients. He has a clear understanding of the legal system and will use his knowledge to advise his clients of a realistic outcome for their case. His intelligence is clear in and out of the courtroom.
His rates are very reasonable for the excellent service he provides. He is by far the best attorney the area has. I have no reservations referring Matt, regardless of the situation.

I couldn't recommend a better Attorney. Matt is both knowledgeable and sincere. He maintained a professional demeanor throughout the entire process, and he also made sure I was always comfortable and informed along the way. He definitely makes his clients his first priority, which assured me that I took my case to the right person.
