A graduate of the University of Miami Law School, I was admitted to the Florida Bar in 1985. I am a member of the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, the Florida Bar Association (Trial Lawyers Section), the American Bar Association, and the Broward County Bar Association. Additionally, I am admitted to practice before all Florida State Courts. I also assist the disadvantaged as a pro-bono volunteer attorney with Broward Lawyers Care and The Lawyers for Children Project.
Though I was born in New Jersey, I have now been a South Florida resident for over 30 years. My practice focuses primarily on personal injury and wrongful death, and I am committed to obtaining the maximum money recovery for those injured or killed by the negligence of others.
At the Law Offices of Russell M. Thompson, I have the legal and financial resources to fight for your legal rights. I will spend the necessary resources, both time and money, to secure the maximum financial results for you. And remember, if you do not recover money, you will not owe me an attorney fee or be responsible for any costs.
Although my office is located in Davie, Florida, I do have satellite office facilities in Fort Lauderdale, Plantation, Sunrise, Coral Springs, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, and Miami where I can meet with you for a free consultation regarding your case. Also, I am always able to meet at your home or the hospital, if needed.
My firm is dedicated to providing aggressive, high-quality legal representation to victims of personal injury. My firm handles many different types of personal injury cases, most of which are covered in detail on this website. Among the many kinds of cases I review are claims for:
An initial discussion about your case is free of charge or obligation, and I only charge a fee if I am successful in recovering an award for you. I will not ask you to pay a retainer fee up front because I recognize that most people recovering from an injury cannot afford to do so. My fees are based on a percentage of any recovery I make for you. This is called a contingent fee agreement.
