About me

Russ Hazlewood’s practice focuses almost exclusively on civil litigation and mostly involves prosecuting affirmative claims for his business and consumer clients.  While Russ is experienced in handling all types of civil litigation, he is best known for handling insurance recovery and consumer protection cases.  

Russ has a long track record of obtaining significant recoveries in cases other lawyers turned down.  Russ does not employ paralegals to interract with his clients.  He believes that every client deserves direct, frequent contact with his or her lawyer.  Russ enjoys a reputation as a lawyer who can and will take a case to trial if it cannot be settled.
