I am a real client. I am not an employee or family member. This is the 2nd review I have ever taken the time to write. I am willing to speak to anyone that has any hesitations.

Attorney, William Russell is professional, attentive, friendly, strategic, and even more important to me is that he has his client's best interest and he gets results. He doesn't just talk the talk like so many lawyers. William is on your side and handles the court process with all its hurdles.
