Review Russell Powell
  • Do NOT look Past.... He's Your Guy

    This is the attorney you want! In 2015 I found him through this page; and so I will leave this amazing story as a true testament to those previous reviews which made me reach out to mr. Powell. I was facing an impossible 2nd dui charge, of which the cop gave me a refusal due to 'not blowing hard enough'. During the dui case they found out about my prior dui which was also a refusal. Through it all, we waited a few months and eventually he got it knocked to an improper lane change and failure to yield! That part was DONE just like that, not even on my record as a 2nd dui. Meanwhile, since I contacted him quickly after the incident, he was able to do something and I kept getting extensions for my license. It was never suspended through the whole time and just recently we won the license hearing too! No ignition interlock nor suspension! He was truly AMAZING, and all this came through the work of his knowledgeable skills and execution on the trial room floor. The cop had odds stacked against me with a failed walked, stand and breathalyzer. But he meticulously picked the cop and his attorney's argument apart fully! I already had a sense that he cared about my case all throughout; however, the way that he prepared and presented my case during the trial clearly showed me that he truly cared about my outcome. That was a small things of the trial compared to his 'movie like' attorney skills, which even caused other attorneys to commend him outside of the court room. In the end I kept my license and it got knocked down to two minor charges and all for a low cost. I would recommend him to my MOM! This IS your guy!

    I hired Atty. Powell for a close friend of mine who was arrested for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. He had just completed his year without a license due to a prior DUI (which occurred before I met him), and was understandably terrified about the impact of this new arrest. Atty. Powell delivered on his promise to get the charges reduced, and my friend ended up paying a nominal amount for a simple, single misdemeanor charge, rather than having to go through drug/alcohol education courses and having another serious conviction on his record. He and I couldn't be more grateful to Atty. Powell! If you're freaking out, he's your man!!!

    Three years ago, Russell was referred to me by a friend for legal advice. I hired Russell for a fair price, and he was able to get the case dismissed from court.

    Russell was very easy to work with and provided me with great advice. He was able to get my DUI charges reduced to a minor traffic offense. Also, he was also able to win my administrative hearing so I was able to keep my license. Great outcome!

  • A Lawyer that Cares

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a DUI & DWI client

    Six months ago I received a DUI while camping at an area lake with my family. Up to that point my most serious traffic infraction had been a speeding ticket. Needless to say, it was a very traumatic experience. The following week I began the search for a lawyer to handle my case. After conversations with two different lawyers, I called Russell Powell. He answered his office phone; there was no gate keeper. I immediately felt that I was Russell’s number one priority. Our phone conversation lasted more than 20 minutes. And I knew I had found my lawyer. He was very knowledgeable and empathetic about the situation in which I found myself. Russell worked very diligently, recommending a strategy that was very specific to my case. In the end, I kept my driver’s license; the DUI did not go on my driving record; I was not required to do community service hours; and I received a suspended imposition of sentence, meaning I would not be convicted of the DUI if I do not have a recurrence in the next 2 years. Without Russell’s assistance, I’m sure the outcome would not have been nearly as positive. If you want a qualified lawyer who cares, I highly recommend Russell Powell.

  • DUI Dismissed

    5.0 stars

    I presented Russell with a DUI in Cass County MO. I was specific in needing a full dismissal in lieu of a deferred judgment, due to my security clearance. Russell was able to hire a Forensic Consultant to disprove the BAC at the time I was given the breathalyzer. He was also able to win the administrative hearing (the one about keeping your license or not). In short, my DUI was dismissed, and I was able to keep my license. I'd highly recommend Mr. Powell in DUI cases, as he is truly a very knowledgeable attorney!!!!
