After consulting with multiple lawyers regarding a very tricky employment contract, I decided to use Russell Adler and it was the best decision I made in a long time. Not only was Russell fully committed to my case, but he always found the time for me to discuss the process. He was extremely positive, attentive and thorough, all the things you'd want from your lawyer. His knowledge and breadth of the law was critical in this case, and he was able to make quick, strong decisions with successful results. I would highly recommend Russell.

Russ is easily the most reliable, competent and trustworthy attorney I have ever come across. Combine that with the fact he achieves results and it's no wonder why his other reviews are so great. He is an absolute beast during negotiations and he successfully got me out of a deeply disturbing situation with a bully former employer. When I felt like there was no hope with my situation, Russ was the man to save the day. He is sharp, reliable, 100% communicative and results-driven. He cares about each person's unique situation and treats you as if you're his only client. Russ knows everything inside and out pertaining to employment law and I can't recommend him highly enough! He has the perfect temperament to deal with his clients and the the right amount of assertiveness and persistence as an advocate when dealing with the opposition's lawyers. If you want results, hire Russ!

He was very professional. Every question I asked Mr.Adler was answered quickly. I enjoyed working out the details of my situation with him because of his honesty. He was very clear on what my options were and what would be the best outcome for me as his client. I would highly recommend him to anyone with legal matter in his area of expertise.

Russell and I worked as adversaries on a non-compete matter. I was thoroughly impressed with his professionalism and commitment to resolving the situation as effectively as possible. He is level headed, intelligent, and a strong advocate for his clients.
