    • I recommend Christopher Russell.

    The team at Russell and Lazarus transformed a nightmare experience and gave me the ability to move on with my life with comfort and closure. My life was in shambles after being hit head on by a drunk driver. I was stranded without health insurance, a vehicle, or any plan. I had nowhere to turn. Having to get back to work was tough enough, not to mention the stack of medical bills and collection calls were increasing at a rapid rate. I was overwhelmed and breaking down financially, physically, and mentally. I had nowhere to turn and had already accepted that I was going to be forced into filling for bankruptcy. That is when Chris Russell came to the rescue. At a moment’s notice, Chris transformed my incredibly difficult situation into a step by step achievable solution.
    First, the team focused on my medical needs and allowed me the ability to see Doctors and Medical Specialists who immediately placed me in a rehabilitation process that I had previously thought was unattainable due to my lack of medical insurance. This provided the ability to get back to work and be confident that I was making the correct steps to recuperation. Next, Chris and the team at Russell and Lazarus put a stop to the ongoing collection calls and continuous medical bills that were polluting my life. From the beginning, the team at Russell and Lazarus assured me that everything would be taken care of and allowed me the ability to focus on my personal and professional life. Words cannot express the amount of relief I felt in having the ability to get back to my life and rebuild my confidence to once again go after my goals and dreams. The litigation process during a personal injury claim is long and drawn out. During this period, Chris took the extra time to educate and help me better understand my personal injury claim, as well as the legal proceedings with the criminal conviction of the drunk driver. My hand was held through every step of this extremely tough process. Not once was I left guessing or flying blind throughout the entire multiyear ordeal.
    With the support of Dani Glidden, Rory Mills, Fenja Klaus, Chris Russell and the entire team at Russell and Lazarus I have finally been able to put this terrible time of my life behind me and focus on moving forward. I never thought that I was going to get through the tough times presented to me after this devastating car accident. Thank you for allowing me the ability to move on with my life!

    Chris Russell and his staff were very helpful with an auto accident claim that I had. My car rolled over and I was hurt and I was trying to deal with the insurance company on my own and it was very stressful. Once I hired Mr. Russell, the stress off my plate. Not only did Mr. Russell help me get good medical treatment but I was also very happy with the amount of the settlement. Thank you Mr. Russell.

    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    After six years with battling the horrific Allstate Insurance Company, I am pleased with the results of the settlement. Allstate is notorious for putting up a long and lengthy fight, but it was well worth the wait. Mr. Russell and his team fought all the way for me.

    I was very lucky to have the law firm of Russell & Lazarus take on my case with only 1 day to go before my statute of limitations would have expired, and I was very impressed that they were able to so quickly file a lawsuit on my behalf. As a result of their dedicated work, I ended up receiving 60% more from Mercury than I would have received if I had not contacted the law firm. During the whole process, they were extremely helpful in making sure the case went forward smoothly, and were most pleasant to have on my side. If I'm in need of a personal injury attorney again in the future, I would not hesitate to contact this law firm once more.

    When I fell all I wanted was my medical bills covered. The insurance company for where I fell, said they would cut me a check, an I would have to pay from that. I had no idea about anything so, a friend said get an attorney. I looked up Russell an the rest is history ! I had no worries the team he has took my calls, filled in any questions I had. Got me more than I would of gotten if I had never called. I would shout from mountains if needed to tell about how great this team of attorneys are. From the lady that answers the phone to the big guy himself I always felt like they knew me an cared. Everyone was very professional an yet never talked down to me or above me. I was treated with respect. An think if I needed an attorney again or anyone I know I will without a doubt go straight to Attorney C. Russell an his wonderful team. Rosie an Daniel are great an I feel like I have know them all for ever not just the two years it took for my case to settle ! Thank you is not enough to cover it all. In fact I am on S.S. an can only have X amount in bank an was in need of moving so Chris told me to let him know how much an where to an he would send the money to my Escrow place when needed. Now that is service above an beyond !! Thank you !! Sincerely S.K.Y. Gier (Sandy)

    • Christopher handled my Personal Injury matter.

    I was recently involved in an auto accident that I did not feel was my fault in the least. As a result of the crash, there were injuries incurred to myself along with extensive damages to my car.
    It was such a pleasure in dealing with Christopher Russell and his staff from the beginning. As a journalist I find that getting specific questions answered to my satisfaction is often difficult at best. Many times I have concluded, "No one will tell you the truth, you must search it out!" Russell & Lazarus, APC answered all my questions in detail and was very insightful regarding the outcomes of each step of the legal procedure.
    Following the timely settlement, I felt that Christopher Russell and his staff secured justice for me in both adequate financial compensation and in maintaining my reputation with my own insurance company, my employer and the community.
    These are truly amazing litigators. They're very good and I would, of course, recommend them to anyone.

    Very Sincerely Yours,
    John
