Certified Bankruptcy Specialist

Russell (Russ) Stong helps individuals protect their homes, cars, and other assets.  Russ is a highly respected advocate in court and enjoys using his quick oral advocacy skills in front of the Judges. 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.  Additionally, Russ developed a strong working relationship with other creditor attorneys, which helps ameliorate complex issues and provide alternatives for his clients. This experience also allowed Russ to argue matters in front of all the Central District Bankruptcy Judges, which enables him to know the patterns and practice of each Bankruptcy Judge.
Prior to becoming an attorney Russ practiced commercial real estate leasing/sales/marketing services including search analysis and lease negotiation. Representing both Landlord and Tenant interests from site location to final occupancy.
