My Lawyer for Life
Jonathan Russell exceeded all my expectations, honest, compassionate, truly cared about me and my families future. A true man of integrity! I would highly recommend Jonathan Russell to anyone in need of a committed lawyer.
Response from Jonathan Russell June 12, 2017
Thanks for your kind words, Fred. I've been told that "a good lawyer is a great asset". While no one ever wants to have to hire an attorney, I'm glad that when they do, your experience warrants a positive recommendation.

Car accident
I hired Jonathan J. Russell after a seemingly minor car accident turned out to cause more personal injury than I initially thought. Jonathan patiently explained the legal process to me. He and his staff were courteous and always available by phone. I frequently received updates and information that helped guide me through a very stressful time. I would highly recommend hiring Jonathan if you are unfortunate to find yourself in a similar position. He is not only friendly, but very considerate of your needs.

While we are zealous advocates on our client’s behalf, we also seek to be compassionately attentive to our client’s needs. We have been told that we are the exact opposite of what gives lawyers a bad name. Thanks for your comments above and confirmation that our efforts in this regard have not gone unnoticed.

Above and beyond!
I contacted Jonathan Russell after being injured in a car accident. My truck was totaled and the accident reinjured my neck and shoulder. Jonathan went above and beyond in working with the insurance company to cover the treatment I needed, a replacement for my truck, and a nice cash settlement.
Response from Jonathan Russell May 17, 2017
Thanks for your kind comments. I appreciate the confidence you placed in me and my firm. Our desire is to continue to provide the kind of legal service which warrants your respect and recommendation.
