I was dealing with another law firm to handle my traffic violation, when that firm started dissolving. Adam Russo with The Drennan Law Firm, took over my case quickly and efficiently! He handled my case, kept me informed of the status, and gave me the results I had hoped for. I HIGHLY recommend him and his professionalism!

Adam Russo is the best you can get to represent you in court. He answered all my questions, kept me updated and explained my options in detail. I was involved in a traffic accident and in the end my case was closed with a judicial dismissal. No ticket, no fine, no points. Hope I never need help again but if I do I definitely will call Adam Russo at the Drennan Law Firm.

I got a speeding ticket on I-95 on my way home to Florida. Since it was two states away, I didn?t want to return to appear before the trial court. I looked up Traffic Law Firms and read their reviews, making it easy to choose Drennan Law Firm. Absolutely the best choice! Adam Russo represented me. Adam explained the process in South Carolina, as it is very different from Florida, and options that I might have to consider. As he promised, Adam called me, following his representation, with the possibilities offered to me. He guided me through the decision with no pressure. The result was better than I expected ? I have no points on my license, and my ticket has been dropped. Adam was brilliant, and I highly recommend him as a qualified and professional lawyer. Thank you, Adam.

Hiring Adam Russo as your advocate is the best decision you can make. You won't be sold out for a plea, or obliviously walked through the legal motions to settle quickly. In todays' age of judicial and political gaslighting, governmental corruption, crooked cops, and good ole boy legal networks, rest assured that Mr Russo is not beholden to the powers that be. He WILL FIGHT for YOU! Thank you, Mr Russo, for your objectivity and professionalism!

We were stressed over a 3 point out of state speeding ticket after discovering we could not take a driving class to avoid points due to the ticket being issued in another state. AND... It would transfer to our state as a 4 point reckless driving! We were not reckless driving (!!!) but that same non reckless driving mph in SC would be charged as reckless in our home state once the paperwork was transferred. This would cause our family policy rates to go up considerably for 5 years! Adam was very helpful in explaining everything. He made us feel important and at ease. He was clearly willing to fight for us. We could not have received a better outcome. Our case was DISMISSED!!! Thank you Adam!

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
