Very Caring
Ross is a very caring and compassionate attorney. Aside from his practical expertise, he is an out of the box thinker who will come up with great solutions others have not seen. I should know, I went through 3 attorneys before finding him.

Very Helpful
Ross spent a half hour over lunch talking with me over a civil case where a contractor ran off with my money. He was knowledgeable, helpful and gave us very valuable advice and suggestions on how to proceed.

I wish he was my full-time attorney
I wish he was my full-time attorney. This man is truly amazing when you are at the lowest of the low and everybody is taking from you from your business your family he is the man .he actually answers the phone he knows who you are he knows everything about your case without even looking at a folder he responds faster than any attorney I know of. I have nothing to say negative about Mr. Russell the only thing he needs to do is to be licensed in every state for me .my business and my family appreciate him more than he will ever know. He is reasonable and looks after his clients.

Very knowledgeable and helpful!
Ross called me in the allotted time period and spent quite a bit of extra time answering my questions. I did not feel hurried or that I was being an annoyance by running a bit over time. Ross obviously has some expert knowledge in the area I need help and I was relieved with some of his suggestions and advice. I have lawyers in my family but they are not Texas Bar admitted so I am familiar with good competent lawyers and definitely felt I was in the hands of a competent attorney. Thanks for your time Ross.

EXCELLENT PERSON ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP!
After a few hours of posting my question, I received several answers, most of them very vague and just to the point. But Lawyer Russell was completely different, he took the time to ask more questions until he provided the correct answer. He is very knowledgable and overall very patient and kind. I now know more about my issues just by interacting with Lawyer Russell. Thank you very much for his time.

Highly Recommend!
Today I consulted with attorney Ross Brenton Russell on the phone about a civil case I'm involved in concerning a Breach of Contract over a business dispute and arbitration. Attorney Russell took time out of his busy day to answer my legal questions and give me valuable legal advice. He was also very professional. I highly recommend Attorney Ross Brenton Russell.

A valued professional.
Mr. Russell offered excellent advice in an honest, straightforward candor. He was able to hone in on exactly what I was hoping to accomplish and offered me the best tools to do so. It is truly exceptional when an attorney is able to extend sound advice without pretension. A true diamond in the rough. Thank you, Mr. Russell.

Fair Judge
When I hired my attorney and we filed suit, we both quickly learned that we would have to go to arbitration instead of going before a regular Court. My attorney told me that Ross Russell would be the arbitrator that would decide our case. He assured me that Mr. Russell was well-respected and issued fair rulings. When I showed up for the couple days of hearings I was impressed by how Mr. Russell ruled on objections and always explained his reasoning along the way. He let me and my attorney to fully explain our case, and let my opponent explain his side too. Over a million dollars were at stake in this case and Mr. Russell was able to quickly cut through the lawyers' fluff arguments and get to the heart of the case. Even though he didn't rule completely in my favor, he explained all of his reasons and gave everyone his written award. My attorney was astonished at how thorough the award was and how quickly Mr. Russell was able to get this case to a final hearing. This case was resolved in six months and my attorney told me that most lawsuits like this would take nearly two years if we had just went to court. I didn't choose arbitration, and I didn't choose Mr. Russell as my arbitrator, but I'm glad he was the arbitrator for our case.

Great Attorney!!
Ross Russell is an excellent attorney. He helped me incorporate my medical practice, and advised me on the complicated compliance issues in the heath care field. When an ex-partner attempted to sue, thanks to Mr. Russell's guidance, we went to arbitration instead. This saved me and my business thousands, and through his representation in the arbitration, not only did my ex-partner lose, but I actually recovered all my attorney's fees in the arbitration! Hiring Mr. Russell as my attorney has not only saved me money, it's made me money.

Fast and informative response
After a few hours of posting my question, I had received a very educated and well put together response. I was completely in the dark when I first posted on here, but after reading his answer, not only am I now well informed, but it was nice reading a response from someone who is knowledgable, but also kind and supportive in his answer. I will for sure go to him for any more legal questions I may have in the future.
