I was seriously injured on October 15, 2018. My children contacted Russ Reiner while I was in ICU the first couple of days. We started working with them immediately.

I was in the hospital until February 1, 2019. During that time they worked with my daughter and walked her through many, many difficult details.

She was able to deal with so many things because of their support. During the time I was hospitalized , and since I was released, Russ and his staff have been kind, helpful, and dedicated to making sure I was compensated for the injury when I was hit by a truck.

They have worked for 8 months solid to guarantee I’m able to support myself and live comfortably for the rest of my life.

I highly recommend Russ Reiner to anyone who needs help with a personal injury or other matters They will stand up and fight for you and walk you through the difficult and overwhelming aftermath of being injured .
