What Makes the Russo, Pelletier, & Sullivan Team Different?

Choosing a law firm to represent you during a difficult time in your life is an emotional and important process. Oftentimes, individuals with no prior criminal history find themselves in an unfortunate situation, and need the best team on their side for a second chance at life. 

Russo, Pelletier, & Sullivan P.A in St. Petersburg has been in operation since the 1980s, practicing criminal defense in Pinellas County for a wide variety of cases. But, our more than three-decade history is not the only reason why we are the premier choice. 

Read on to learn more about what makes the Russo, Pelletier, & Sullivan team stand out among the competition, and see how we can help you win your case.

Our Holistic Team Approach

When an individual is being accused of a crime, they want to know that they have the best defense possible. At Russo, Pelletier, & Sullivan, we work as a team on every case, meaning no attorney works in isolation. 

Each of our three attorneys also has a different area of focus, with diverse backgrounds and unique experiences. This allows us to provide the most well thought out solutions that many other firms cannot offer. 

As a small firm, we regard not only our attorneys, but also our staff as a family. When one of us is hired for a case, we are all hired, meaning no case gets passed off. Every client is our top priority. 

We also prioritize showing up in court ourselves, meaning we never use coverage attorneys. When our client’s life and wellbeing is on the line, they can count on us to show up every time. Each of our attorneys is in court nearly every day, and the courthouse has essentially become our second home. 

When you hire Russo, Pelletier, & Sullivan P.A in St. Petersburg, you can have the confidence that our holistic team approach yields the best results and allows for multiple professional perspectives on every issue.

Extensive Experience As Prosecutors 

Another defining feature of our firm is our attorneys’ extensive experience as prosecutors. Serving as prosecutors for years, each of our attorneys, whether Zachariah Wade, Timothy Sullivan, or Marc N. Pelletier in St. Petersburg, knows what the judges are looking for. The courthouse is like a second home to us, and because we limit our practice to only Pinellas County, we work with the same judges and prosecutors day in and day out. 

Many of the individuals who were our attorneys’ contemporaries as prosecutors are now leaders in the Pinellas County court system. In fact, of the current judges in the 6th Judicial Circuit, 13 of them are former coworkers of members of our team. Being familiar with our judicial circuit helps us represent our clients in a more efficient and effective manner.
