    50%
    Variety of criminal cases from traffic cases in municipal court and disorderly persons offenses to Superior Court indictable matters. Also specialize in defense of DWI cases, which has become especially complex in the last five years. The other part of my practice involves personal injury cases, from auto accidents to representing those injured at work.

    27 years

  2. DUI and DWI
    25%

  3. Workers compensation
    25%

I have been practicing as an attorney for twenty six years in New Jersey.  That time has been split evenly between criminal and municipal court matters including DWI as well as and personal injury and workers compensation. 

 

I have handled hundreds of cases from traffic tickets to first degree indictable crimes in Superior Court and Federal Court.  In the past years, defending DWI cases has become my specialty.  They have become increasingly complex, and the stakes are always getting higher.   In addition to my private practice, I am the Public Defender in the Townships of Montclair and Cedar Grove and this allows me to handle a variety of matters on a constant basis. 

 

On the Civil side, I have handled hundreds of cases where I represented clients who had been injured by automobile negligence or at work through no fault of their own. 

 

I am also a musician, proficient on both the piano and trumpet.  My first CD, titled

In a Sentimental Mood, was released by Drift Street Records in December of 2007

Hire Mr. Russo.
Mr. Russo handled a matter for me and I was very happy with the outcome. He spoke up on my behalf when needed to do so, and he worked out my legal situation to my benefit. I would definitely hire Mr Russo again if need be. His office staff is also extremely helpful and very respectful. Especially Dee.

Great lawyer!
I've used Mr. Russo in multiple cases and both times he was able to get me the best possible outcomes. People who recommended him to me were very happy with his work as well. He has a very strong and confident presence in the courtroom that stands out. Everyone from the secretaries to Mr. Russo were very helpful and professional as well. I highly recommended his office without reservation.

Great Lawyer for Accidents too
Attorney Russo is great for criminal cases, I have watched him for years. Recently used him for an accident case and I must say that his staff is very professional and his office is modern and very organized. Mr. Russo will use other resources to make sure you not only have great care but your case is handled in a professional and timely matter.

Unprofessional
I cannot give no stars to post. So i gave the lowest. GMSMFH .people, friends/family etc. are asked to post good reviews for businesses and whomever claims this guy is 'professional) is either lying or did not get to see the side I did. This guy is very unprofessional, especially if you are a female. He acts inappropriately and goggles at you when he thinks you're not looking. I felt extremely uncomfortable and told my friend not to hire him. I am more than sure we were not the only ones, but I just had to share it. If you go to a lawyer for a problem to be solved you should not be made to feel any other type of way.
