  • Robert James Wood Jr.

    Russell is one of the most capable lawyers I know. His knowledge of the law is outstanding. He is a tenacious advocate for his clients. If I ever needed legal representation, Russell would be on a very short list of attorneys that I'd consider to help me. I recommend him without reservation.
