About Russell

Learn Russell’s areas of practice.

Hi, my name is Russ, and I’m from Brooklyn, New York, born and raised. I take great satisfaction in helping people, especially when they believe they don’t have a fighting chance.

As a senior assistant district attorney in my hometown, I prosecuted some of the most violent felony offenders, while reassuring terrified crime victims their perpetrators would meet justice. But my work also showed me how good people sometimes made bad decisions, and that they deserved a chance at redemption. If I could help them, I did.

My professional path led me to a Manhattan firm for a couple years, where I helped defend medical professionals, who either did their best, or fell short of the standard of care. I returned to criminal law with my own defense practice, and diplomatically leveled the playing field for my clients throughout NYC. When necessary, I zealously engaged prosecutors when they didn’t treat people with dignity.

In 2009, my wife (an acupuncturist) and I moved to Colorado for a new life. I continued my solo practice, she started hers, and we created a family with two wonderful little girls. I eventually joined a Denver firm, and balanced a caseload of civil, criminal, and traffic matters. Because the firm’s culture didn’t allow me to help people the way I was accustomed to, I sought, and was fortunate to find my home with Ramos Law.

I have the privilege, every day, to empower people with a leveraged, confident voice against responsible parties. Because I come from a long line of determined fighters, it’s ingrained in me to be a Man for Others. That’s how I was brought up, and that’s why I am a lawyer.

Please feel free to reach me anytime at or  I would be honored to help you.
