You feel that he really cares about you and the struggles you are going through. When it seemed like no one else was on our side, he was and we are so grateful. He was enormously helpful. Thank you so much!”

Russell is an amazing resource for cannabis law. His knowledge is extensive and only unmatched by the loyalty and care he had for my case. I was put to ease knowing that Russell was on my side. He went over and above his duties and always had my best interests at heart. I would recommend his services.
