Help Arrived when I hired Elizabeth Russell
I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone needing legal help. I had gotten into a situation with a family member so a friend of mine told me to call Elizabeth Russell. I Did and I am so glad I did. Elizabeth worked passionately in my case and got everything dropped. She treats her clients with respect and makes them feel everything is going to be okay. She calmed my nerves and did a great job to boot. Elizabeth is dedicated to her clients in every way. She goes far above what she has to do and does it with kindness and respect. Elizabeth demonstrated her willingness to go to any length to make sure justice was served in my case. I would recommend her to anyone I know needing legal help. She is a Class Act.

Going to any length
I highly recommend Liz to those seeking a legal advocate. I was contacted by Liz to assist her in finding substance abuse treatment for one of her client. Liz worked tirelessly and passionately in support of her client. Late night calls, trips to the jail and courthouse all in an effort to help her client get the help he needed. While her client sought her for help with a legal problem in the end, due to Liz's efforts, he received what could be life-changing/life-saving help with his addiction. What Liz demonstrated to me is that she is willing to go to any length to help...legal and otherwise.

Great lawyer
I had a situation and didn't know who I needed to call or what lawyer to use. I decided to call Elizabeth Russell because I remembered seeing her office in downtown Franklin. She handled everything and did a great job! I will reccomend her to anyone I know that needs a lawyer.

"When I think of experienced and zealous litigators, Ms. Russell is at the top of my list. While Ms. Russell is incredibly intelligent and talented at spotting legal issues, her willingness to present and persuade more challenging legal arguments is unique. Not only do I endorse Ms. Russell, she is the first attorney I would call if a situation ever arose where I needed to retain counsel."
