3 rd offense oui in mass, Adam was able to keep my license for the entire time of the trail. He expedited trial to less than 3 months, He kept me informed the entire time with motions being filed and mandating evidence being locked into place 1 full month prior to trial. Adam was completely honest the entire time and worked steadily against the prosecution. He addressed every issue head on and won. I was in a very procures sitituation and he worked diligently to take it to trial and won my case.

In 2014, I was out with a group of friends. All of us being 19-20 at the time. We were approached by two unfamiliar individuals one of whom was a correctional officer and the other an EMT. An altercation took place and I was accused of assault and battery. Because of this, I was placed under house arrest and was meant to report home at 7:00 every night and every morning to take a breathalyzer test. This caused me to miss out on family events and opportunities that I otherwise would have participated in . My discomfort was obvious so Adam took it upon himself to get an appeal in Superior Court in order for me to be taken off the bracelet. He succeeded and I was one more step closer to where I wanted to be. Due to them being state officials they already had the credentials and the reputation of being compliant and "innocent" so to speak. Although, I was not in the wrong, because of their titles, I felt as if I were losing an uphill battle. However, My lawyer, Adam Russell, had faith in me and made that very evident during his performance in trial. He asked clear and concise questions and did not accept an answer unless it was just as clear and just as concise. He mentioned key facts that only someone with a high intellect and keen eye would be able to notice. Overall, he went in there with a goal and he did not give up until he had reached it. Because of Adam, I can now return to a normal life. A life I had missed, A life that Adam Russell gave back to me.

Adam has an office next door to mine, and we constantly exchange stories and theories. He is an expert in criminal defense and I have picked his brain on several occasions, with good results. His knowledge, courtroom presence and zeal combine to make him paramount in whatever matter he is engaged for. I recommend him.
