John E. Russell

Prior to entering law school, Mr. Russell worked as a paralegal at Satin & Russell, a personal injury law firm based in Newport Beach, California.  It was there that he developed an interest in this field of practice, after realizing the positive difference a good attorney could make in resolving accident cases.  Mr. Russell received his law degree from Santa Clara University School of Law in 1994. While attending Santa Clara, Mr. Russell was awarded the Best Brief for Appellants, at the Pace Environmental Moot Court Competition (Published in the Pace Environmental Law Review, Spring 1994 Edition).

After graduating from Santa Clara, Mr. Russell worked as a Judicial Research Attorney for the Superior Court of Santa Clara County, located in San Jose, California. His duties included the research and preparation of judicial memos in civil law cases. In 1996, Mr. Russell left the Superior Court to become an associate attorney at the law firm of Hopkins & Carley, also located in San Jose. Mr. Russell’s practice focused on business litigation matters, including intellectual property and contract disputes. Mr. Russell draws upon his extensive business litigation experience when representing clients in court. 

Mr. Russell graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of California, Irvine. Mr. Russell earned a B.A. degree in Social Ecology, with a dual focus on law and environmental studies.
