  • Robert F Harrian

    I have known Russell for several years and have had several family law matters against him. I found Russell to be very knowledgeable in the area of family law and thorough in his investigation into community assets and community debts. In his approach to cases he always seeks to minimize unnecessary conflict, analyze the merits of the case and fight for a fair resolution of the issues. I would not hesitate to refer family and friends to Russell.
