"Everyone involved with your firm feels deep gratitude, respect and admiration to you and to your team: capability, integrity as a person who delivered far more than what was represented to us at the start; your strategy, staging, planning and execution and above all everything you did generated respect for all of us who worked with you and your firm.
Your efforts on our behalf helped us end our complex litigation years earlier and with a very positive outcome.

"BOOM! Nice. Thank you for all your hard work and guiding us through the process. Couldn't be happier with how things went. I know it was a lot in a short amount of time, but I'm really happy with everything.
Feel free to tack on your favorite 6-pack of beer onto our next statement and please pass on my thanks and gratitude to everyone at the firm for the help."

"You know you have a good attorney when your opponent does everything they can to try to (unsuccessfully) prevent Jack Russo from being your attorney. This is what recently happened in litigation. Jack Russo and his team have been my attorneys both for my former company and personally for fifteen years, through multiple state and federal court trials, arbitrations, and negotiations, and are the best there are in Silicon Valley, and beyond."
Dr. Jonathan Buckheit (retired Chairman and CEO, Yield Dynamics, Inc.)

"Chris: This is wonderful! You guys are great. Many thanks to Jack and to you for all the effort and for your brilliant strategizing that really worked quite well. I'm so pleased that I had the good fortune to work with you all.
I will wait to hear from you on what the next steps are. Once the dust settles on this, I would like to discuss with you and Jack the modalities for keeping this attorney-client relationship as an ongoing one, as the company looks forward towards its next (quite promising) attempt at being a successful service provider to the education space.
In the meantime, thanks for a job well done."
Adeboyejo Oni, Owen Software Development Ltd.
Those are all comforting items, but most comforting of all to me is your personal involvement representing me in this mess.
The financial stakes are obviously quite large.......and I've made no errors or omissions here, and was not negligent in any way.
I'm really counting on your uniquely special skills and talents in representing me, once this case works its way into the legal system"
Joe Guentert, Power Distribution Systems
"For the five long years of litigation against a large public company, this team professionally represented me and my private company to an exceptionally successful result including through all stages of proceedings including affirmance of the judgment by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. This was an extremely long, arduous case and I was impressed with the preparation, competency, and legal expertise exhibited by the firm. If the need arises in the future, I would not hesitate to have this team represent me again. They were simply terrific."
