Orange County Personal Injury Lawyers

For over 30 years, Christopher Russell has been a pivotal ally for personal injury clients across Southern California. 14 years after passing the Bar exam and acting as the managing partner for an established personal injury law firm, Chris established his own law firm, first named the Law Offices of Christopher E. Russell and then changing to Russell & Lazarus in 2005. Chris has practiced law for 30 years in Newport Beach, and that is where the main office of Russell & Lazarus is located. In 2013 and 2014 Chris has been selected as one of the Top 12 Orange County Personal Injury Attorneys by AVVO (the premier national lawyer rating agency) and O.C. Metro, the Orange County Register’s monthly magazine. The firm serves not only Orange County but also Los Angeles County, Riverside County, Sacramento County, and San Bernardino County residents. In addition, the firm routinely handles claims in Hawaii, Nevada, Arizona and Northern California.

With over $200 million in personal injury compensation recovered on behalf of our deserving clients, our firm has the skill and track record to succeed. We have personally assisted over 5,000 clients who have sought out our experienced legal services; 95% of whom have had successful outcomes. Our entire philosophy stands behind a single principle: putting our clients’ interests first. Our Orange County personal injury law firm has been built on the tenets of compassion, along with working harder and smarter than the opposition. These guiding principles help us ensure that we obtain the best possible results for all of our clients.

We know first-hand how horrible it is to suffer through a serious accident as two of Chris’ daughters were involved in a high speed boat collision involving a drunk driver where they both had to be airlifted to a trauma hospital. It is additionally painful knowing that an accident could have been prevented if someone had paid attention to their actions. Through the negligence of another, an accident that should not have happened occurred. And now you have to go through the unimaginable pain and difficult, long process of recovery. That is why we are here: to help defend you against the bad guys (usually in the form of insurance companies and major corporations) through our personal injury representation.

Our philosophy is quite simple: Your job is to continue to recover and heal. It is our job to do everything else. Our opponents respect us. The insurance industry and judges respect us. Many of our current cases come from referrals of past clients. It is only natural to want to choose an Orange County personal injury law firm who has had a tremendous record of success. What is most important is that you choose a law firm who is the best fit for you, and can make sure that all of the details of your case are handled in the most professional, expeditious manner possible.

While you are suffering a debilitating injury, or the overwhelming struggle to make sense of the tragedy of losing a loved one, we concentrate on the worrying and the paperwork for you.
