I can’t adequately put into words how thankful we are to have met Russell Lorfing. He is not only a brilliant and experienced federal attorney, but is a man of good character. One who whole-heartedly went above and beyond to defend my husband, all the while treating us like family. Russell and his team greatly helped restore my husband and I’s faith that there truly are some great attorneys out there that really care about justice.
My husband was falsely accused of a federal crime many years back, and sadly, at that time, we did not know who to turn to. Unfortunately we hired an ineffective attorney, to put it politely. He only worked hard at trying to get my husband to plead guilty. He took our money, but didn’t communicate at all what he was doing or help prepare us. My husband was rushed through trial with no defense, and heartbreakingly spent over a decade in prison for something he didn’t do. Believe me, I’ve seen the spectrum of the worst to the best of lawyers.
So after my husband was finally home, he started going to his mandatory classes. He was being honest about his situation and doing everything in his power to comply on all the work required. After going to every class and explaining what he had been through, he was eventually kicked out due to not admitting guilt. Instead of helping him find a counselor that would work with him in his situation, like he asked for many times, he was arrested for not being in compliance. A good friend of ours had heard of the exceptional reputation of Russell Lorfing and recommended him to me.
The anguish and fear we were going through once again was unbearable. After talking to Russell and telling him my husbands story, he decided to take our case, but let us know it would be a tough fight. Russell went to work immediately, and I mean that day. He went to stand with my husband at a hearing we had just found out about as we were speaking on the phone. That meant the world to my husband and our kids and I.
I soon found out what a true attorney is like. Especially one who has a passionate heart to help people. He communicated clearly, and answered our questions about everything that he and his team were working on along the way. They always wanted to know our thoughts.
In the next hearing, Russell and Chris Solis fought hard for us. They were successful at having my husband released to come home as we prepared for the next big hearing. After that, again, Russell worked tirelessly preparing for the next fight. He stayed in touch with us throughout each step and made us feel like we were his only client. As the date of the hearing approached, we were unbelievably thankful to hear that, through all of the strategies and communication that Russell and his team had done, the charges had been dropped. Many in our community have prayerfully supported our family over the years and this meant the world to all of us. Each win that Russell was able to work for us was nearly unheard of, but he precisely prepared for each step, knew how to artfully communicate, and was persistent. All the while they were hospitable. Wendi in the office made sure Russell received my communication and documents and made us feel comfortable when we visited.
I wholeheartedly recommend Russell Lorfing if you need an attorney. He is a real advocate. He completely knows his way around the courtroom and will fight smart and hard for you. He truly is worth every single penny and more. If you are in need of an attorney, look no further than Russell Lorfing. You will not be disappointed.
