    Russell handled my wife’s case. She was charged with six felony counts of workers comp fraud. This was a traumatic experience for us. Russell believed in my wife and worked hard for her. After much hard work and many court appearances, Russell was able to settle the case with no felonies and no jail time, He negotiated just a single misdemeanor and drastically reduced restitution amount. Russell is a highly experienced and respected.

    I received a call from the U.S. pretrial services notifying me that my son had been arrested on Federal charges and was looking at a sentence of 5 to 10 years. I searched for an attorney specializing in border cases. I was blessed to have found Mr. Babcock. Over the course of 5 months (that included 90+ e-mails and numerous phone calls), Mr. Babcock always did what he said he was going to do.

    Doesn’t get much better than this. I had gotten the worst of everything in my case, i was facing a Felony over $4100 dollars in fines 6 months jail, and the loss of my license, at the time of sentencing Russell made a fantastic plea with the judge to reduce my felony to a misdemeanor. Not only did the Felony get reduced but my fines were greatly reduced and i still got to keep my license and faced no jail time. I would definitely recommend Russell to anyone who needs serious defending. Many Thanks Russell
