Here’s what our clients are saying:

I would like to thank John Russo for representing me. I thought he was very informative and reliable. I could really tell that he cared about my situation. Every time I had questions and would call him, he responded promptly. I was really impressed with his communication skills and reliability.

My Husband & I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Russo at his office last week. We never felt rushed as Mr. Russo listened attentively & discussed our situation for over an hour & 20 minutes. At the end of that time I offered to pay Mr. Russo a consultation fee for his time & sound advice, which he politely refused. He has certainly built good will with us as we wouldn't hesitate to use him in the future & highly recommend him as he is the antithesis of a money grabbing lawyer who thinks only about what's in it for him.
