For over 32 years, Personal Injury Lawyer Chris Russell has represented over 5,000 clients in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange Counties in regards to their personal injury claims. He is a highly respected and experienced attorney who puts his clients’ interests first. As a result, he has obtained on behalf of his clients over $300 million in personal injury compensation.
Chris personally understands how overwhelming it is to be involved in a serious accident, as he has had several close family members suffer accident-related injuries, including his two youngest daughters who were seriously injured by an intoxicated boat driver.
Chris has been practicing law since 1984, and is the founder and principal partner of Russell & Lazarus APC. The firm of Russell & Lazarus was established in 1998 and is located in Newport Beach, California, with offices serving the county of Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Sacramento and Orange. Mr. Russell began his practice with the premise that by meeting the needs of his clients first, the needs of his firm and his employees would then also be met. Mr. Russell coached high school football as a way to put himself through college. He practices law and lives by the motto of former Notre Dame head coach, Lou Holtz:
- Do right by people at all times;
- Do everything to the best of your ability;
- Show people you care.
