Criminal Defense

Being charged with a crime in the United States is supposed to place you before the best and most fair judicial system in the world.  You have rights, the courts are open and fair, you can have a lawyer and a free one if you cannot afford one.  However, anyone who has ever actually been charged with a crime knows that the system does not operate in a storybook.  And what is supposed to happen and what actually happens are often far apart.  Many times, the only thing that stands between you and what the Government wants to do to you is your defense lawyer, not the fairness of the system.  So choosing the right one is one of the most important decisions you will have to make.

Criminal defense is what Manuel Russ does at Manuel B. Russ, PLLC.  For over 10 years, Mr. Russ has focused almost exclusively on criminal defense and knows the area, the judges, the courts, and the other attorneys who are trying to put you in jail through years of cases and negotiations.  There is no kind of case too big or too small that Mr. Russ has not handled it before and cannot handle is again.  When the system gets ahold of you, don't let them dictate to you what will happen.  Call the right lawyer and let him go to work for you.  Call Mr. Russ.
