I represent injury victims and their families in their fight for fair treatment by big insurance, big corporations, and big government.  I regularly represent clients who are injured in Kentucky or Ohio but who live or work in another state.  In this scenario, it is important to have an attorney who understands the laws in both states and is familiar with the benefits and application of Kentucky's "No-Fault" MVRA in order to maximize recovery.

After being in a car accident, I turned to a quick google search for representation and found the law group of Russell & Ireland. Admittedly hesitant not knowing anything about the attorneys, my fears were quickly quelled. The people there are the epitome of professional and courteous. Attorney Adam Russell welcomed myself and my husband and walked us through the hectic process and took care of us. From the start we were treated like people rather than numbers. If we had questions, he had answers and was available to be reached almost always. If we couldn’t reach him directly he responded promptly, concisely and in plain English. He fought for me and my family and didn’t settle until he was confident we got what we deserved. I couldn’t be happier with the treatment received as a client of Russel & Ireland Law Group and would recommend them to anyone in search of legal counsel by real people who care.

Beyond Professional
I found Adam and his firm on Avvo and I am hear to say that I could not be happier with the outcome. He was continually professional and communicated clearly as the case rolled out all the options and angles both positive and negative. Never once did I feel as though he attempted to overshadow me or my situation. Working with Adam I felt truly protected and we were up against a very...very large and aggressive company regarding my injury on their premises. One hundred percent of the time I knew that he was dedicated to an amicable outcome and delivered on all his promises. Moreover, Adam made me feel as though I was his only client. He was available when needed, but best of all, I was able to step back and trust he had it handled. His advise and timelines regarding outcomes and the next phase were accurate and clairvoyant. Adam Russel did everything one would expect and beyond.

Adam Russell Is Fantastic!
Adam diligently worked on my behalf as I was treated unfairly by an insurance company. He took time to explain every step of the process to me. He was very thorough in his documentation and in his preparations for my case. He obtained a successful resolution to my case, and I couldn't be happier to recommend Mr. Russell to anyone who is looking for a good attorney.

Adam was very reachable and extremely personable. He handled my issue with expertise and professionalism and was able to get my case dismissed even though I was out of the state and not able to appear in court with him.

Adam worked miracles!!!!
I was involved in 2 accidents in 3 months. The companies blamed one another for my injuries. I went through months upon months of medical care. Insurance companies tried to settle before my treatment was completed and the settlement offer was $750 for a condition I will carry with me the rest of my life. I got fed up and called Adam, which was a great decison. My case was complicated with two wrecks both not my fault and my care began with an incompetent doctor who refused to order tests & wrote jibberish in my records. I listened to the doctor and didnt know any better this was my first experience. I didnt know the nonsense she wrote until Adam informed me. My whole case was a true nightmare. Adam worked diligently .Adam was honest and up front about the problems in my case & potential outcomes. At first I was so fed up I told adam I would be happy if my medical bills got paid but once the offers started coming in I wanted more after all I will live with the pain the rest of my life. Not to mention the actual inconvenice of getting medical care, finding babysitters for my kids while I went to appointments or the increased pain while traveling to the wounded warriors at Fort Knox to visit my husband after his deployment. I was unsure of the outcome but I told Adam and he said we will try for more. He went back and forth with the insurance companies and actually got over 10,000 more than the original offer. Needless to say I was shocked but ecstatic. Adam listened to me and understood where I was coming from. He was positive and honest. He was always available, always returned my calls & kept us informed every step of the way. His service and dedication are beyond excellent. My wrecks and process before I hired Adam was a true nightmare. There were bumps in the road but Adam handled them all and did fabulous. Some Attorneys wouldn't even touch my case because I didn't have tons of mangled metal as they say and my medical care was not good or well documented. God truly blessed me with Adam and his services. I can never say enough great things about Adam. I'm so grateful for him and his services. It is so rare these days to find honest dedicated professionals.

Great defense for my case.
Adam did a great job preparing me for my driving impaired case. I was definitely nervous and stressed out about it, but he helped to alleviate some of those feelings by helping guide me through every step of the legal process, which I was unfamiliar with. He kept me informed on every development in the case, as well as what to do or not to do in the court room during appearances. Adam never sugarcoated any detail about my case and what certain developments could mean. He always gave his honest legal opinion on what strategy would be best. Adam did an outstanding job on his opening and closing arguments on the day of my trial, as well as the ins and outs of jury selection. He showed how much he prepared by asking thorough questions during cross-examination. He clearly left a good impression on the jurors hearing my case as his defense was successful. I was very relieved. Finally, Adam did an impeccable job with the way he handled, prepared for, and executed my defense plan for this case. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to help me in unfamiliar legal territory. He made the most of my trial date and could do the same for individuals in similar circumstances such as mine. Highly recommended.

Excellent counslor and representation.
After a motorcycle accident and with me being more than 800 miles from home, I needed to find a lawyer that was licensed to practice in several states. After getting several mailings while I was waiting surgery I selected Adam's firm after doing a bit of research on the net. Call it the luck of the draw but I don't think I could have found a better lawyer if I had looked for a month. Adam kept me up to date on my case with phone calls and email on a weekly if not more basis. His knowledge not only saved me money with medical bills but also increased my settlement by almost two fold. Adam represented me in dealings with Tricare, the hospital, doctors and several insurance companies. If you need a counselor and are in the KY, OH or WV area I highly recommend Adam.

LLC Mad eEasy
I cannot express enough gratitude to Adam Russell for all of his expertise and advice that he extended to me when establishing an LLC for my new company. I lacked the knowledge that I needed for getting my company started, and Adam guided me through the process with patience and professionalism. As an up and coming business owner, it was very important for me to find proper guidance and counsel in this new venture. Adam was very giving of his time and resources in helping me through this process. I can't say enough great things about Adam and all he has done for me with helping me get my company established. Thank you!

Professional and Thorough Attorney
This is the second time we have had Mr. Russell represent us and couldn't be happier with his services. This time he represented my son who had serious injuries due to a car accident. He went above and beyond helping us come to a fair conclusion. He is very professional and ethical and kept us informed during the entire process. We would definitely hire him again should we ever need legal representation.

Adam Russell, an EXCELLENT Attorney-at-law
Adam Russell has truly been a God send! He helped us from beginning to end with a very complicated lawsuit / eviction case. His legal council was well thought out, never too hasty or emotional and consistently based in sound logic. I truly believe that his valuable assistance and wisdom spared us a ton of heartache, all while protecting our hard earned assets / investment properties. I would and will highly recommend Adam Russell to anyone that needs a wise and dependable attorney!

Car accident
Adam handled our case without ever meeting us. All our dealings were via E mail/telephone and written correspondence. Since we are from Canada and knew nothing of Kentucky law we relied on his expertise. Adam was very thorough in his approach to our case with a favourable outcome. We would highly recommend him.
Posted by Travis | October 22, 2013
Great Lawyer! Helps a ton
While handling my case, Mr. Russell kept me informed through the whole process. Not only did he make sure that I understood my options but also what the pros and cons of each possibility that could happen. I would definitely recommend him for any services because he wants to help his client not just win a case. Your not just a case number to him, rather a person.

Adam Michael Russell
I was involved in a motorcycle accident and the driver of the vehicle that hit me was cited. The defendant's insurance refused to pay my medical bills and property damage until it was getting close to the trial date. Adam and his co-council did a tremendous job representing me. Adam fought hard was able to triple the amount the defendant insurance council was willing to settle for. Adam kept in touch with me, defendant's council, court system and other contacts in a timely manner. I am very satisfied with Adam's professionalism.
