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 dealt with many attorneys and Mr. Russell is by far the best! He is very experienced in his field and understands that these are not just cases but people he is dealing with. He did an amazing job dealing with my case and he was always very patient with me to explain process!
mr russel is very professional and i woukld highley recommend him for anyone that is in need of a professional to handle their case. thank you very much chris from arto and devra mcgee
Russell and Lazarus law firm did an ASTOUNDING job with my case. Kept me very informed and update on everything. Aldo did an amazing job keeping me up to date on my case. If i give more than 5 stars i definitely would.
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.
Nice to have been taken care of so well. All I had to do was be patient and wait for the'Team' to settle my dispute! Thank you all for your hard work and patience with me!
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)
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,
I have known Chris Russell for the last 15 years. He has represented me twice. On the first occasion, I was a victim of a fraudulent collection agency. Chris immediately got the threatening phone calls to stop, and filed a formal report with the Better Business Bureau. Recently, Chris represented me in court for a traffic ticket. Chris successfully got the ticket removed and provided good follow-up throughout the process. Over the years, Chis has also provided invaluable knowledge about auto insurance to make sure that we have the right coverage. Chris has tremendous experience dealing with insurance companies and knows the most best amounts of insurance to carry. Without the help of Chris, I kwould be quite under-insured, not knowing I was at risk.
Overall, Chris and his legal team were professional and provided good communcation, so that I knew my cases were being handled carefully. Chris knows how to deal with insurance companies and how to navigate through the difficult California legal system. I highly recommend Russell & Lazarus for personal legal issues and personal injury cases.
