Providing services for family law matters from offices in Woodbridge, New Jersey.
I combine my years of experience, knowledge of the law, intense preparation and a personal mantra of never being outworked to achieve optimal results for every client. Divorce is a grueling and at times devastating process. I understand that even an amicable divorce will have a profound impact on a couple’s assets, income, children and the emotional health of the entire family. I care about my clients. I care about their children. As a leading divorce attorney in New Jersey, my priority is to understand each client’s goals and work tirelessly to achieve those results.

Mr. Russell is a Shareholder and Chair of the Family Law Department at the Wilentz Firm. While Mr. Russell focuses his practice on high net worth and high profile divorce matters, he has a full service family law practice–alimony, child custody and parenting time, child support, distribution of assets and liabilities, business valuations, protection of exempt assets, family trusts, domestic violence, same sex marriage, prenuptial agreements are issues that, while perhaps foreign to his clients, Mr. Russell immerses himself in every day.
Mr. Russell regularly appears in the Family Part throughout New Jersey but he is particularly active in Monmouth, Ocean, Middlesex, Somerset, Bergen, Union, Morris and Essex Counties, possessing an intimate knowledge of those courts and opposing counsel. In addition to having been appointed to serve on the Family Law Executive Committee to the New Jersey State Bar Association, Mr. Russell also serves on those committees in Ocean and Monmouth Counties, as well as an Early Settlement Panelist in Monmouth and Middlesex Counties. Mr. Russell is also certified as a R. 1:40 Qualified Mediator, where he conducts both private and court appointed mediations.
