Helping Memphis have a brighter tommorow!

At the Russell Law Office I currently provide legal representation in the Memphis Area as a Personal Injury Lawyer,  Bankruptcy attorney, Social Security Disability Lawyer, and a Divorce Attorney. I also provide representation in Memphis Real Estate. Whether you need help with a divorce or custody dispute, have creditors calling you at all hours of the day and night or need to ensure you are fairly compensated for a serious automobile accident, I am ready to help you. I’m currently offering free consultations in all non-family law areas of my practice. Right now my areas of practice include Consumer Bankruptcy, family and custody law, personal injury including medical malpractice and nursing home neglect, and Social Security disability.


When I started this practice, my goal was to provide aggressive (but caring) legal services to those who need them. Originally I focused first on family and divorce litigation but, after several years went by, I found that the adversarial nature of litigation wasn’t as emotionally rewarding for my clients or for myself as I had hoped it could be.

My practice is also associated with a focus on Social Security Disability Law.

In addition to disability and family legal services, my practice deals most extensively with people considering declaring consumer bankruptcy.

My main goal is to get you (or your business) back on your feet and to help you get your life back on track. Whether you’re experiencing financial distress or need help figuring how best to navigate a custody dispute, I can help you.

Consumer Bankruptcy

Believe it or not, filing for bankruptcy can be the first step to taking back control of your life. It is one of the most powerful and effective legal actions available to you. Bankruptcy will stop most garnishments, repossessions, and those annoying (and scary!) creditor phone calls. Most importantly, it can give you back your life. My  bankruptcy page has more information and you can always contact me to get a free consultation or fill out the form below.

 

 

 

 

Rule 31 Family Law and Divorce Mediation

Tennessee requires that parents undergo mediation before litigating child custody issues. Tennessee’s Supreme Court requires that a mediator must be listed under Rule 31 to be recognized as a court appointed mediator. I am a Rule 31 listed mediator. I have extensive experience in divorce law and am well versed in the current issues and legislation. I encourage to contact me today to if you need help resolving your divorce or child custody case.

Small Business and Appellate Work

Advising and helping small businesses grow has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my practice of law. I can help you with matters including incorporation, contract drafting and regulatory compliance issues. I also greatly enjoy appellate practice. One of the most rewarding cases in the history of my practice was In Re Angela E. et. Al., (Tenn. 2010), where I was appellate counsel and ultimately achieved a reversal of both the trial court and the Tennessee Court of Appeals’ rulings.

Do you need legal advice that isn’t centered on the topics covered here? Please feel free to consult my Guide to Memphis Lawyers for help finding Memphis Lawyers for areas of law in which I do not currently practice such as being a Memphis Divorce Lawyer. My other site, Lawyer Fetch, also contains great general advice on how to find a lawyer and on lawyers in general.
