Sam was referred to me by a mutual acquaintance. He represented me in a dispute with a contractor who made a mess of a project at my house that left me in a worse situation than when the work began.
Sam took my initial call without hesitation and gave me all the time I needed to explain the situation with which I was dealing (he has excellent listening skills). His experience and expertise were was immediately obvious. He asked all the rights questions and got to the heart of the matter quickly. His opinions and advice were fair, balanced, and realistic. Throughout the process he stayed in regular contact with me and returned all my calls promptly.
In the end I received a fair settlement, and equally important, closure on an unpleasant event with an unscrupulous contractor.
Nobody wants to be in the position of having the call a lawyer. But if you do, with Sam there should be no hesitation. He's a wise man, with a calm demeanor, who will put you at ease and be in your corner.
I was lucky enough to have Samuel Russell and his firm represent me during an investigation that was opened with a former employer regarding sexual misconduct by their employee and myself. It was extremely difficult to go through this situation again and to be interacting with a financial institution, but Sam made sure that I felt comfortable and legally safe. He was not only an excellent lawyer, but also someone that cares for your emotional well being and security. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer.
I feel very fortunate that Sam Russell represented me in a recent legal matter involving a fairly complex mix of contracts and construction law and homeowner hazard insurance issues. Sam is a gentleman, whip smart and the best legal advocate I could have hoped for.
Knowledgeable, effective, and customer service oriented. Sam will give you honest advice about your case, and, if you retain him, he'll fight hard on your behalf. What more can you ask for in a lawyer? Highly recommended.
