The team at Russell and Lazarus transformed a nightmare experience and gave me the ability to move on with my life with comfort and closure. My life was in shambles after being hit head on by a drunk driver. I was stranded without health insurance, a vehicle, or any plan. I had nowhere to turn. Having to get back to work was tough enough, not to mention the stack of medical bills and collection calls were increasing at a rapid rate. I was overwhelmed and breaking down financially, physically, and mentally. I had nowhere to turn and had already accepted that I was going to be forced into filling for bankruptcy. That is when Chris Russell came to the rescue. At a moment’s notice, Chris transformed my incredibly difficult situation into a step by step achievable solution.
First, the team focused on my medical needs and allowed me the ability to see Doctors and Medical Specialists who immediately placed me in a rehabilitation process that I had previously thought was unattainable due to my lack of medical insurance. This provided the ability to get back to work and be confident that I was making the correct steps to recuperation. Next, Chris and the team at Russell and Lazarus put a stop to the ongoing collection calls and continuous medical bills that were polluting my life. From the beginning, the team at Russell and Lazarus assured me that everything would be taken care of and allowed me the ability to focus on my personal and professional life. Words cannot express the amount of relief I felt in having the ability to get back to my life and rebuild my confidence to once again go after my goals and dreams. The litigation process during a personal injury claim is long and drawn out. During this period, Chris took the extra time to educate and help me better understand my personal injury claim, as well as the legal proceedings with the criminal conviction of the drunk driver. My hand was held through every step of this extremely tough process. Not once was I left guessing or flying blind throughout the entire multiyear ordeal.
With the support of Dani Glidden, Rory Mills, Fenja Klaus, Chris Russell and the entire team at Russell and Lazarus I have finally been able to put this terrible time of my life behind me and focus on moving forward. I never thought that I was going to get through the tough times presented to me after this devastating car accident. Thank you for allowing me the ability to move on with my life!

Chris Russell and his staff were very helpful with an auto accident claim that I had. My car rolled over and I was hurt and I was trying to deal with the insurance company on my own and it was very stressful. Once I hired Mr. Russell, the stress off my plate. Not only did Mr. Russell help me get good medical treatment but I was also very happy with the amount of the settlement. Thank you Mr. Russell.

I have dealt with many attorneys and Mr. Russell is by far the best! He is very experienced in his field and understands that these are not just cases but people he is dealing with. He did an amazing job dealing with my case and he was always very patient with me to explain process!
