Russell’s intimate knowledge of how corporations, insurance companies, and health care professionals approach litigation and evaluate claims allows him to offer a unique perspective to his clients.
Whether in the courtroom or at the negotiating table, Russell dedicates himself to helping injured people throughout West Virginia stand up to large corporations and achieve the justice they deserve. Russell is additionally licensed to practice law in Kentucky and represents clients throughout the commonwealth.
When he is not working to help clients achieve fair and just compensation, Russell enjoys traveling, running, and enjoying other outdoor activities with his wife, Adaline, his daughter, Taylor, and son Jack. He also is a devoted soccer fan.
Russell graduated in 2000 from Hampden-Sydney College with a B.A. in history, and achieved his Juris Doctor from the University of Miami School of Law in 2004, graduating cum laude.
