  • Gregg S Baker

    Russell is an exceptional litigator with a proven track record. He is both a skilled negotiator and a savvy trial lawyer, which means he has all the tools necessary to effectively advocate and resolve client issues. Russell has assembled and leads what I consider to be one of Westchester County's premier litigation firms.

  • John P Corrigan

    I endorse Russell who is at the top of his game as a civil litigator. I have worked with him on numerous matters and cases over the last 4+ years where my firm's expertise is useful as co-counsel to his firm. A very fair person to deal will professionally but never assume his friendly demeanor makes him a pushover as he is as a tenacious and tireless advocate for his clients as they come.
