“Russell is an extremely passionate lawyer when it comes to Cannabis rights. He helped us so much when we were having issues with our landlord and municipality. He is very generous and down to earth. 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 Bennett is a talented, experienced and dedicated lawyer working in the cannabis sector. His creative application over the years is noteworthy; including the documentary STONED: Hemp Nation on Trial 1998 and publication of Canada’s Cannabis Act: Annotation & Commentary 2019. We consult regularly on industry related projects and truly appreciate the legal work he has done for our company CannaSystems Canada Inc.”

Bruce Ryan CEO, CannaSystems.ca


“I feel we’ve become over-accustomed to the term “represent” as in “I need a lawyer to represent me”, to the point where the true meaning becomes understated. However, Russell Bennett brings the definition of representation roaring back to life and is the absolute embodiment of both a legal representative and a sincere advocate.

Never have I had a lawyer whom I felt TRULY understood my needs and represented me other than Russell Bennett. He’s an incredible lawyer and a genuine personal advocate for you in times of need where advocacy is absolutely critical to success. He’s someone who recognizes you and your position in the subtle ways that count and matter the most.

You really want Russell on your side to fight for you, he’s literally your own advocate personified and someone who will represent you in the true meaning of the word – he’s a straight up phenomenal lawyer.”
