My 2 partners and I utilized Russell in a very complex matter that was in Federal court as well as two different state courts. When all other professionals failed before him (4 law firms), he was able to reach a resolution for a difficult economic and personal matter that had dragged on for years. He is a rare breed of lawyer who makes you feel like he is in the trenches beside you fighting as if he himself was one of the litigants. He will get the job done for you no matter what and do so looking out for your best interests.

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.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
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.
