Born and raised in Port Jervis, New York and a graduate of Eldred Central School in 1995. Returned to the area after attending the University of Wyoming in Laramie Wyoming where I received my B.A. in 1999. Then attended Roger Williams University School of Law in Bristol Rhode Island, receiving my J.D. in 2003.
For the last two years I worked for the Sullivan County Legal Aid Panel handling all manner of cases in the Sullivan County Family Court as well as criminal cases in the Justice Courts. Prior to this I spent three years working for the Sullivan County District Attorney’s Office where I was responsible for handling criminal cases from simple violations to serious felonies.
My experience enables me to provide quality, effective legal representation to you.
"Scott made the process very easy for me. He handled everything so that I did not have to appear in court. Most important is that he achieved the result that I was looking for."
Scott you are phenomenal, thank you for your hard work in getting my speeding ticket decreased to a parking ticket with 0 points. You are a miracle worker!
Scott was great to work with! He made the whole process easy and painless. I have never had to use legal counsel for a traffic violation before and he made my first experience easy - he handled everything! Scott was able to communicate with me by email which was great with my hectic work schedules. Overall super accommodating with quick and informative responses- I was keep up to date on all recent happening in regards to my case. Very satisfied. I would definitely employ his services in the future if need be- he knows Sullivan County! Two- Thumbs up!
Scott has been there for me over the past couple of years. He was able to get my DWI reduced to a non-criminal offense. Even with that on my history he was able to get two subsequent tickets in different towns reduced, a 6 point work zone speeding ticket reduced to a 2 point non-speeding ticket and a cell phone ticket reduced to a parking ticket. He was even able to offer some advice regarding a civil matter that was spot on. I am so confident in Scott that I have referred several of my friends to him for similar matters knowing they will get the best representation that money can buy, even if you don't have it right away. Scott was sympathetic to my money issues and was able to work out a payment plan. He is a lawyer that cares and works hard to do the best for his clients.
I received two separate tickets for speeding violations and could have lost my license. Thanks to Mr. Russell's expertise the tickets were reduced and I was able to keep my license. He is knowledgeable about the law and professional. I would recommend him to all of my friends.
