Kristin is a caring and knowledgeable attorney . Cares about you, is straight
forward, and will do whatever it takes
for her clients. As a juvenile I was
facing multiple felonies, but Kristin
worked through the evidence
and all the felonies were dropped.
I am very thankful that she was my

Kristin is the most honest and informative person i have ever met in the profession where there are a lot of assholes that just want your money. I had a really bad experience with a lawyer before i found Kristin and was extremely pleased with how she treated me, how personable she was, and how she genuinely wanted the best for me and my family. I will always recommend her to anyone who needs help, and i will never ever seek advice from anyone else. Her husband is great too!

When i first called the law firm to get a free consultation about my husband's case, Kristin was very helpful and was very honest and made me feel confident that they would be able to handle my husband's case. We live in California but my husband had an outstanding warrant in Kentucky dated all the way back in 2000 but we weren't aware of it. Needless to say, Kristin and Adam helped us through it and they resolved it and quashed the warrant on our behalf.
We are very pleased to have picked them to handle our case because Kristin was very nice and kept us informed at all times. She also provided me every documents via email and mail of what was done in court and that is what i needed the most. You would not be disappointed with this law firm.

An issue arose where I had been incorrectly identified in regards to a felony charge. Mrs. Russell was extremely quick to pass along any new and pertinent information as it was identified. This resulted in me being able to provide documentation proving my innocence. I would definitely recommend her services and would be happy to have her represent me in the future, should it be necessary.

Kristin Russell is an excellent attorney. She fought for me when I thought all hope for being cleared of my charge was lost. She not only stayed positive, she found case law that enabled the judge to hold the prosecutor to the evidence not to speculation in my case. Her clear understanding of the law and the workings of the Kenton County Court was reassuring when the stress of legal system seemed overwhelming. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking excellent, professional, defense counsel for DUI or any matter that may disrupt your life. If you want an excellent chance of either "Dismissed" or "Not Guilty" you must have Kristin Russell representing you. I'm glad I did. Thanks Kristin! You are a credit to your profession.

I was charged with 7 counts 3 of which where felonies along with a DUI which carried and sentence of one to three years in prison. On my arraignment 4 days after i was arrested she was able to get a plea bargain which dropped my felonies as well as my DUI. She was very focused and attentive to my case and situation. I was only charged with possession of marijuana and a paraphernalia. She was able to get me into a diversion program in which I will complete in one year and will allow me to have these two charges taken off of my record. She is an excellent lawyer and very easy to get along with I would recommend her services to anyone I know.

So glad to have found Ms Russell via avvo. I referred her one of my NC licensees who'd received traffic charges in KY but had failed to appear for them. I was confident she'd work hard to reach an outcome which would save his license and she did-and she exceeded even my high expectations. Would be pleased to refer more clients and heartily and highly recommend her to others.
