In the last 30 years, I have litigated with and against Larry several times, and I have also watched as he built an impressive law firm.
Larry is very smart and very capable, but I know many lawyers who are smart and capable, and that it not what makes Larry stand apart.
Many lawyers tend to forget the fact that the law is only a tool and that litigation is not an end in itself.
As a result, all too often, the tail often wags the dog.
Because of Larry’s substantial experience in the business world, he approaches legal problems from a business perspective.
Few lawyers do that, and even fewer do that well.
If I had to retain counsel to represent me in a business dispute, Larry would be my first choice.

I have known and worked with Larry Russ for over 20 years. I can state, categorically, that Larry is the best in the business. He "gets it" immediately and completely. He goes right to the heart of a matter, saving his clients huge amounts in legal fees as compared to other firms, and providing first rate client services time and time again. He is 100% trustworthy and, for good measure, he is one of the nicest people you will ever meet.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I know Larry for nearly 30 years. During that time we have worked together as co-counsel on several cases and represented opposing parties in several cases. Whether working together or opposing one another, Larry has always acted with the highest integrity and professionalism. He is a vigorous advocate but always with the interests of his client clearly in view. Larry is also discerning, insightful and creative. Many lawyers are smart - far fewer consistently demonstrate balance and wisdom in formulating and executing litigation and resolution strategies. Larry is a superb attorney that I wholeheartedly endorse.
