Blair was highly recommended to me through a friend that has hired him at least 3 times for DUI cases, the same reason I hired Blair for. I'm very happy to have hired Blair, he came through big time...my case ended up going to trial and he got me a "Not Guilty" verdict! He is very knowledgeable and passionate with his cases. I would hire him again if needed in a heart beat!

My experience with Blair...I am a guy that has no "in and out" experience with the system so when I had criminal harassment charges leveled against me by the city I was losing sleep to say the least. I have no record to speak of and getting one would be a disaster for me. Blair's help was enormous he explained the million questions I have and worried about. Being involved in legal sludge is stressful and frustrating but Blair helps you manage everything well. We decided to go to trial in my case and is it turned the prosecutor dropped the case and the nonsense ended in my favor. Blairs services are worth every penny. He is a smart and intelligent lawyer and his record speaks for itself.

Blair Russ is not only an amazing attorney, he grow into a great friend! My case was a DUI with a refusal and unfortunately my second one under the age of 21. I plead not guilty because believe it or not I wasn't drunk!! Blair really believe in me and my case and fought for 2 years to help me finally see my day in court. Even though I was late to court one day which made my case have to go on for another 6-8 months due to personal life scheduling conflicts he didn't give up on me. He always kept me informed, and didn't feel like I was a waste of time, even though my trail got rescheduled more than 5 times.
Once my trial actually began, the preparation and delivery of MY story was exactly what I had hoped for. It is very hard to make people understand my situation but one thing Blair has a talent for is communicating. He drew the picture that most people wouldn't attempt to see when they hear my charges, he gave me a voice and really spoke to the jury in a language which proved my innocence. Blair helped me explain myself in a way I couldn't and I really owe him so much for that. The time we spent trying to deal with this was very stressful but all worth it in the end with my verdict of NOT GUILTY! The jury later spoke to me and even told me how great he was and clear and genuine when he spoke. They listened to him and were able to trust and believe what he said. Being in this situation has taught me a lot but mainly made me really appreciate how much in my corner Blair was. He is an awesome lawyer and I highly recommend him. Thank you Blair!!!!

I had the pleasure of recently trying a civil case with Blair. He's an exceptional attorney, bright, hard working, charismatic, personable, and cares deeply for his clients. I learned a great deal from him and look forward to working with him in the future. I highly endorse this lawyer.
