Russ is an amazing attorney. He stood by my every step of the way even when I had a mental break down after i had been convicted. ( Russ didn't go down without a fight though, easily the best criminal defense I had ever had) he helped me through everything and even though I ot convicted instead of going to prison like the DA asked for i got three years probation with no jail time thanks to Russ' arguments. Thank you Russ, for everything.

Russell Hammer is an EXCELLENT Criminal Defense Lawyer. Right from the beginning he supported me and my decisions in my defense with my case. He never waivered when it came to taking my case to trial even the prosecution wanted to make a deal. He believed in me and valued my life and the consequences that could have been put upon me had a conviction been made. Due to his diligence in his defense, we won in trial and a conviction was not made. Thanks to Russell Hammer, I am a free man!

I was the respondant in a non-spousal restraining order and it was a very difficult situation because there were 2 people accusing me. Russ handled it well, in a timely and low-key manner. He attempted to settle the matter outside of court, but when that didn't work he was extremely effective in court. He was able to present my side of the altercation, while also pointing out the holes in the accusers story. I was extremely happy with his work, and would gladly recommend him to anybody who has to defend themselves from false accusations.
