Russell May is fantastic and I would highly recommend him. When we first opened our case Russell’s customer service was exceptional. Not only did he explain every step of the process to us thoroughly and in a way which we understood, but he is also very professional and knowledgeable in the area we needed him for. Russell has always come back to us in a timely manner and has always been able to answer our questions and worries. Russell is 100% committed to our case and has exceptional commercial acumen.
