Christopher Russell has been practicing law since 1984 and is the founder and principal partner of Russell & Lazarus APC. The firm of Russell & Lazarus, established in 1998, is located in Newport Beach, California, and serves Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Sacramento and Orange Counties.
Mr. Russell is a highly respected and experienced personal injury attorney who puts his clients’ needs first. In doing so, he believes that the needs of his employees and firm will also be met.
Mr. Russell has worked on almost every type of personal injury case including motor vehicle collisions, product liability, slip/trip and falls, premises liability, animal bites and related injuries, work related claims, and sexual assault claims. In all of these cases, someone was injured and needed help. He understands how it feels to be injured due to the negligence of another—an intoxicated boat driver once critically injured his two youngest daughters. He does not shy away from difficult cases and has an amazing 95% compensation recovery rate for his clients.
Mr. Russell is married to his wife, Helene St. Pierre Russell—they have four grown daughters. He keeps himself busy helping his clients and spending time with his family. He also regularly gives back to the community in the context of activities and events that honor those who have been injured or killed in accidents.
