Russell handled my wife's case. She was charged with six felony counts of workers comp fraud. This was a traumatic experience for us. Russell believed in my wife and worked hard for her. After much hard work and many court appearances, Russell was able to settle the case with no felonies and no jail time, He negotiated just a single misdemeanor and drastically reduced restitution amount. Russell is a highly experienced and respected criminal defense attorney. He returns calls and messages promptly and deeply cares about his clients. We are very grateful that Russell was on our side. I highly recommend the legal services of Russell Babcock.

I first met Russell when he visited me at the Metropolitan Correctional Center the very same day I contacted him to assist in my federal criminal case. He was able to secure my release much more quickly than had I not used an attorney.
Since my release, Mr. Babcock has been attentive to every detail of my criminal case, from accompanying me at court appearances to assisting me with understanding the criminal trial process. Best of all, he kept me aware of next steps and what I could expect along the way, and was always approachable.
I highly recommend Mr. Babcock for this professional, expert work.
