Very caring+professional
The information Russell gave helped me to know what to say to the collection agency and after I was able to explain my situation from a legal standpoint they are writing over $8000 off. Pretty impressive! THANK YOU

Client review
I was in desperate need for a civil lawyer regarding a landlord/tenant issue and had no idea who to go to until I found Mr. Dombrow. I called him and he gave me guidance as to what to do for the initial proceeding. After that he gave me such good advise and took the time to sit with me in order for me to represent myself in court. He took the time to go over everything and I was in awe at all the certifications on his office walls. He is a very caring , knowledgeable lawyer. I would and will recommend him to anybody that needs a lawyer. He is AWESOME

Endorse Russell
Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Oct 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. I endorse this lawyer. Why? If all attorneys providing answers on AVVO took the time to completely try and answer a question in detail showing like Mr. Dombrow does, their knowledge, accurate and complete and thorough advice, then AVVO would have the cream of the crop. Look at all his over 1,000 answers to questions and you can see why Russell is entitled to such a great endorsement. Russell does not simply answer: Get an attorney. Rather, he tries to explain the answer and thus why an attorney is needed in fact. Great job and appreciated by a peer in Washington State. I highly recommend this attorney for any bankruptcy-related work"
