Russell Adler

There are many attorneys out there. Russ isn't like any of them. That's mostly why he's my attorney. He's the high hat of the beat. The bass player in the band. The dude that's a little quirky, and always intriguing. I think these differences are why I'm drawn to Russ. They're the reason why he has become more of a "consigliere" to me than hired gun. He's the real deal. Genuine, grounded and a new kind of attorney with a new kind of approach to success that I thought worth sharing. I think you'll agree.

I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished the big one yet.

I approached John after his set and berated him.
