Scott helped me with a touchy situation a few years ago. He was thoughtful, thorough and completely professional. He provided legal advice while respecting my input and wishes on how I wanted to proceed. I would call on Scott again should I ever need appropriate legal services in the future.

My wife and I suffered a personal tragedy when our son was killed by an unlicensed driver in Florida. We’re from Vermont. Scott Russell was recommended to us. These were dark times for us, and Mr. Russell represented us with care and understanding. All our calls and emails were immediately answered. He negotiated with insurances and hospital billing officials, keeping us informed but also keeping them at arm’s length from us. He fully advised us on what steps were necessary and what steps were inadvisable. We were then, and are now, eternally grateful for his guidance and sensitivity.

I cannot say enough great things about Mr. Russell! I was involved in a car accident involving a fatality. I was taken to the hospital with back injuries and was out of work for several weeks. I hired Mr. Russell almost immediately after the crash on the advise of a friend who had hired him years prior. Mr. Russell was very thorough and kept in constant contact with me throughout my medical treatments. He handled everything. My insurance company and the other parties insurance company paid fully and I know it was due to Mr. Russell's hard work and attention to every detail. I have since recommended Mr. Russell to several of my friends and family members.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Scott for nearly 20 years and he is one of the brightest, hard-working lawyers I know. There are very few lawyers in the State of Florida with his breadth of knowledge of the law and courtroom procedure. He fights hard for his clients and has always been a staunch supporter of the civil justice system and right to jury trial. I would recommend Scott to anyone looking for a real advocate.
