About a year ago I was in a car wreck, my very first, and I was not at fault. Unfortunately, though the situation turned on me after my lawyer at Morris Bart turned down my case during my treatment for body injuries. I was told that I did not have insurance, which left me on my own with injuries that continued to have me in pain. That was until my friend told me about a friendly and passionate friend she's known a long time; Danny Russell. He was a godsend and he really and truly felt for my situation. It's not only that he's sympathetic, but also empathic to understand what it is like to be in a situation like myself. He's inspired to really fight for you, and really look into policies that you could not understand. When he says he can do something, you better believe it. Because while I lost hope, Danny found it. Thank you so much. Both you and your wife and staff are extremely thoughtful. Thank you for the birthday/holiday cards, and for the gift basket. That was a sweet touch to the entire experience. I feel like family. I promise not to be a stranger, we are way past that. :)

Danny is great!
Danny does such a wonderful job explaining all of the legal terms and actions that will happen. I probably wouldn't have understood a thing that was going on if it weren't for him. I am definitely recommending him to anyone in need of a good lawyer.

Personal injury
It was a positive experience working with the Danny Russell Law Firm on my case. They were there to help me every step of the way. After my car accident, I didn’t even know where to begin. Dealing with insurance companies can be nerve wracking, and an injury on top of it was overwhelming. Danny was in constant communication with me. His attention to the case allowed me to recover and get back to work quicker. I would absolutely recommend Danny Russell to handle your personal injury case.
