Dr. Russell Brunelle is our trusted quartermaster, tech wizard, and legal editor (WSBA# 54905). Following his Ph.D. in engineering he too had a career in technology.  He soon turned his attention though to civil rights advocacy. You won't learn much about him on social media, because he doesn't believe in that, but he may be the best person to help you secure your digital safety, get admissible evidence from your smart phone.

Vincent & Jules totally get it, and might help you get it too!


Perfectly pled arguments can be good for our moods, but nothing lifts us like puppy time with V & J!


Seen here with their brother Jack, Vincent & Jules (yes, from the movie Pulp Fiction) make it easy to focus on making positive change in the world, despite the sometimes very emotional work we do. They are also good for a little perspective: They think burger-flavored puppy chow is tasty!  We actually have clients who call and ask to visit them, which they happily oblige.
