Russell Paul Nowell, known by clients as “Russ”, grew up in Southern California and has been practicing law in the state since 1987. Russ attended Wheaton University just outside of Chicago, and later graduated with and Bachelor of Arts in History from Cal State Fullerton. Upon completion of his undergraduate degree, he studied law at Loyola Marymount University, graduating with cum laude honors in 1987. Russ is a California Certified Legal Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust, and Probate Law, which is a rarity among attorneys. To ensure the best practices, Russ is also a member of the Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys. The Academy is an invitation-only organization recommended by Money Magazine, because its members are known to provide excellent services for those who are ready for serious estate planning. With this membership, Russ stays current and relevant with changing laws and legal document changes. Russ feels that it is important to continue your education as an attorney and as a client, giving lectures on various estate-planning topics and holding monthly informative seminars at no cost to the public. Education is key to successful estate planning and he is willing to provide that.
Russ takes his practice very seriously, often standing with his clients not only as an attorney, but as a friend and confidante. He guides families through some of the most difficult and painful events in their lives and is always ready to listen to his clients’ concerns. Russ can counsel from a place of empathy, as he himself was appointed as the conservator for his mother when he was just eighteen years old, by the Los Angeles Superior Court. Because his mother was unable to care for herself any longer, Russ and his wife Laurie were given the privilege and responsibility to provide the best life possible for her from 1981 to 2004. When Russ is not counseling his clients, he keeps busy with various hobbies such as cooking, baking bread, and wood-working projects. He is an active member on the board of his church, and he values his time with his wife and his black Labrador retriever, Charley.
