3rd case using Russell Moorehead!
I had the pleasure of working with Russell Moorhead last year on a probate and paternity case. I noticed Russell also specialized in real estate, so I figured it would be a good idea to hire him again. Mr. Moorehead is an intelligent, experienced and talented lawyer who also possesses the emotional intelligence to expertly handle clients and everyone else in the courtroom. I was fortunate to have him in court with me for a real estate deal case. Many times, you think you know what the outcome of a court case will or should be based on your own past experience or what you read online. Unfortunately, that just isn't true. You need a lawyer like Russell who understands how the evidence will be evaluated and how the judge and opposing attorneys will react. That's exactly what happened with my case. Russell knew right away what the best possible outcome for me would be. He explained how much we should ask for in the settlement, why and what to expect. As I watched the case unfold, I saw how right he was. Without him, I would have blown the entire case and received nothing. If you want an empathetic, knowledgeable lawyer who is also an ace in the courtroom, I fully recommend Russel Moorehead.

Russell Moorhead Review
A property was purchased in my name using my personal information. I called the Ohio Atty. general's office for assistance. They referred me to the Ohio bar association. The bar association gave us three lawyers names who they thought might be able to help me. After speaking with these lawyers I decided to meet with Mr. Moorehead for a consultation. I had a gut feeling that Mr. Moore truly wanted to help me resolve my issue after consulting with him. Mr. Moorehead began helping me by taking charge of any communications with Wells Fargo mortgage company. He advised me regarding things that I needed to do to assist him in the law suit. I felt that he was diligent and persistent in the pursuit of a resolution with Wells Fargo. He was consistent and providing feedback and information regarding the case. He was timely and providing me with documentation that was required by the courts and Wells Fargo. Mr. Moorehead negotiated an agreement with Wells Fargo's lawyers not to take the lawsuit to court. He formulated an agreement with Wells Fargo's lawyers to not hold me responsible for any of outstanding debt on the property if I signed a release of the property to Wells Fargo. It took about a year from the time we contacted Mr. Moorehead for him to bring this very stressful situation to resolution. Mr. Moorehead was supportive and gave me confidence in him and a feeling that he had my best interest at heart. I felt that his priorities were strictly geared to help me resolve a very stressful situation. The property was listed at almost $1,000,000. The circumstances in which my personal information was used to purchase this property were bizarre to say the least. My nephew used my personal information to purchase the property and he made payments on mortgage for six years. The title company where the paperwork was signed to purchase the property no longer exist. Information on the loan application was falsified. My income and personal information was falsified. After that period of time there was no one who could be deposed as witnesses. Mr. Moorehead used his negotiating abilities and knowledge of the law to bring this lawsuit to resolution. At no time did I ever doubt that Mr. Moorehead had my best interest at heart. You cannot imagine the relief when Mr. Moorehead contacted me to advise me that the court date had been canceled and that by signing a release that this nightmare that I was going through what finally be over.

Very pleased with our experience!
Very pleased with Mr. Moorhead. We had him prepare our wills, which were fairly basic, but had a couple of odd things that needed to be dealt with. He was very responsive and easy to work with. Made sure he understood what we wanted before proceeding, Would highly recommend.

Trustworthy and straightforward
I have used Mr. Moorhead's services on three occasions. I appreciate that he has given me a full picture of my situation in each case and has been straightforward and explains what I needed to know without talking down to me. I recommend him highly.
