At Wasser | Russ, we believe that intimate and immediate access to senior attorneys is essential to our relationships with clients and we are involved in many of their pivotal business decisions.

Staunch Allies

An attorney is the most important professional alliance a business owner can make. They craft the corporate legal documents that put your company’s best interests first. We fiercely protect your company against conflict and give you an edge in negotiations.

Tenacious Advocates

No one wants to find themselves involved in painful, expensive litigation. Protection starts with deeply researched, meticulously written and strategically crafted agreements.

Should a conflict arise, you want an attorney who will fight for you and fearlessly pursue your objectives. We approach litigation in a rational, methodical, tenacious manner. We never give up until a resolution is achieved.

Problem Solvers

We utilize a common sense, street-smart approach to even the most vexing problems. We never pre-judge and seek solutions that often come from unexpected places.

As your advisors, you have access to our tightly-knit network of professional alliances that gives you a wealth of intelligence and expertise, legal and non-legal.

Cost Effective

We are always mindful of your bottom line. Budgetary pressures notwithstanding, you will always receive guidance from seasoned, skilled partners and senior attorneys.

You will find us to be collaborators, creative problem solvers, tenacious advocates, trusted advisors and take-charge innovators.

Our unique professional style has resulted in relationships and confidences with our clients, large and small, public and private, lasting many years.

Black’s Law Dictionary defines a lawyer as “A person learned in the law; as an attorney, counsel or solicitor… whose business it is to give legal advice or assistance in relation to any cause or matter whatever.”

Of course, the successful practice of law combines tradition, knowledge, experience and integrity. But, at Wasser & Russ, we fervently believe that clients are entitled to much more.
