About Russell

Learn Russell’s areas of practice.

It is my goal to provide first class representation and, as such, I am very selective when reviewing potential cases.  Likewise, I expect potential clients to be very selective when choosing a lawyer.  I believe the key distinction between a good lawyer and a great lawyer is that the great lawyer has compassion and genuinely cares for their clients.  I take cases personally and strive to treat my clients as I would like to be treated.  I am committed to maximizing the physical, emotional and financial recovery of each client that I have the honor of representing.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your potential case.

Integrity and Results
I have retained Mr. Lewis on a number of complex civil cases. He has always displayed the utmost professionalism, discretion, and integrity. He made sure he understood my concerns, never made false promises, and kept me informed through the entire process each time. Most importantly, he delivered! This is a great attorney. Highly recommend.

Excellent Attorney
I was co-counsel on a wrongful death claim with Rusty. It was a difficult case but throughout the process Rusty was prepared, professional, and very helpful. I highly recommend him if you have been injured and need legal assistance.

A very satisfied client!
When I needed a lawyer, Russell came highly recommended by a close friend. My case involved very sensitive topics and difficult issues. Russell handled everything with the highest level of professionalism and competence. I was very satisfied with the results he helped me achieve.

Russell Warren Lewis IV
Russell represented my sister and me in a suit against a nursing home, and its corporate owner, where our parents were treated. The suit was based on the care given our Father. The suit took over three years, and during all that time Russell took a special interest in our Father as a person, through our life stories and people who knew him so well. This was the most hurtful, emotional time for my sister and me. We were determined that our Father would not be forgotten through all the litigation. Not only did Russell treat us with kindness and respect, he showed a true level of integrity He is highly competent and totally professional. When the family of an elderly gentleman, without money, goes up against a large corporate legal team, it is difficult at the least. We were so fortunate to find Russell. Russell took them on and used what he learned about our Father to force them to look at the Man! He earned our confidence as he spared nothing to get the truth concerning what happened. We were more than pleased with his ability and passion. Russell was an advocate for our Father. After all the time together we found a friend. If you are looking for an attorney, please take the time to get in touch with Russell.
