I met with Ms Russell-Washington to discuss a concern regarding a difficult and complicated case. She scheduled the appointment, showed up and allowed me to present my legal concerns and evaluated them accurately and professionally. Some attorneys will cut you off, fail to listen and try to direct you where they want you to go or try to rob you for a high fee before giving you any part of a listening or concerned ear. Ms Russell-Washington IS NOT one of these types. If she were a physician, one would describe her attitude as great bedside manner. She knows, and loves the law and she respects a client, EVEN on a first meeting far better than I've found others in her profession to do.
