I grew up in Northern Kentucky and I have been practicing law here for almost 7 years. I fight for my clients accused of felonies, misdemeanors, DUI, juvenile offenses, probation or parole violations, and contempt of court in family court. I am also passionate about representing clients in Kentucky adoption cases and doing everything I can to expedite the proceedings.
Please contact me if you need an experienced criminal defense or adoption attorney. DISCLAIMER: If you send me a message through Avvo, the message does not create an attorney-client relationship.

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.
