Russell was absolutely amazing. This was a trying time for me with all things going on, and he was patient and encouraging. He kept his momentum from the beginning even when changes came up during this pandemic. He is a great advocate and you can tell he is passionate about the work that he does. I highly recommend his expertise to anyone who has and workplace legal issues. He’s knowledgeable and efficient.
