Russ is passionate about his client’s rights but commands the respect from his advisories due to his outgoing personality and pleasant disposition.
Prior to working for Simon Resnik, Russ represented financial institutions in fraud actions as a creditor’s attorney. This experience gives him insight into handling individual debtor cases as he understands the mentality and approach of the creditor attorney.
