“Recommendation for Russ Brown – Having worked with Russ Brown as my lawyer, he fulfilled all the necessary duties.
He wrote an LLC business package for me and my business partner and helped us to complete all the necessary parts.
Russ worked as a lawyer and consultant in a real estate project. He wrote a contract for the business and a prospective buyer, helping us in all the legal aspects of the real estate offer. He did necessary research, arranged and attended meetings, and provided information that was pertinent to the business.
During the time that he was representing the business, he was deployed to Iraq. While he was gone, he secured another lawyer to represent us and carry out his duties and responsibilities. Upon his return, he stepped back into his responsibilities without hesitation. I was very satisfied with his work.
Russ also helped with several other legal issues for my personal family. He settled the legal issues by writing letters and making phone calls to the involved parties. All issues were settled favorably and were done pro bono. I can’t thank him enough for the work he has done for me and my family.
Russ Brown is a knowledgeable, responsible, and dependable lawyer and in the event I would need legal advice in the future, I would not hesitate to call him. I would also recommend him to friends and family.
