Welcome to Russell Law the website of Melissa and Shaun Russell.  We are both sole barristers meaning we are able to provide you with one-on-one service and develop long standing client relationships. We will give your case our utmost attention unlike the bigger firms where your matter may be dealt with by a number of different people which losses the personal touch we think is needed in this profession.


Our experience has been predominately in the Criminal and Family areas of the Law.  Before commencing practise as Barristers we both worked in the Department for Courts in Whangarei.  This allowed us to gain a valuable and intrinsic knowledge of the workings of the legal system and develop strong community relationships with the legal community including Judges, Police, public services and other lawyers.  This local knowledge helps us provide a comprehensive, competent and professional service to our clients.  Further to this it gives us an understanding of the local problems which meaning we can gain ready access to the services needed to help resolve family and criminal issues. Combined we have over 20 years experience in the Northland legal system.  We were both born and raised in the Northland however left for a short time to gain our LLB degrees at Waikato University. 


Thank you for visiting our website and we invite you to contact us if you have any queries about the services we offer or if you require our assistance. We will be happy to answer any questions or enquiries you may have.
