This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Russell’s comment: “Attorney was reprimanded in 2005 for improperly notarizing a court document. Further explanation available upon request.”

Having worked with Russ Brown as my lawyer, he fulfilled all the necessary duties.
He wrote an LLC business package for me and my business partner and helped us to complete all the necessary parts.
Russ worked as a lawyer and consultant in a real estate project. He wrote a contract for the business and a prospective buyer, helping us in all the legal
aspects of the real estate offer. He did necessary research, arranged and attended meetings, and provided information that was pertinent to the business.
During the time that he was representing the business, he was deployed to Iraq. While he was gone, he secured another lawyer to represent us and carry out
his duties and responsibilities. Upon his return, he stepped back into his responsibilities without hesitation.
I was very satisfied with his work.
Russ also helped with several other legal issues for my personal family. He settled the legal issues by writing letters and making phone calls to the involved parties. All issues
were settled favorably and were done pro bono. I can't thank him enough for the work he has done for me and my family.
Russ Brown is a knowledgeable, responsible, and dependable lawyer and in the event I would need legal advice in the future, I would not hesitate to call him. I would also
recommend him to friends and family.

I have used Mr. Brown to review & write contracts, review NDA's and set up a trust for deceased friends daughters. Mr. Brown has always been very quick to respond and provided thorough advice. On more than one occasion I have needed a very quick turnaround for a new client and Mr. Brown came thru in the time I needed. Without reservation I recommend Mr. Brown for business legal services.
