Beloved colleague passes away

Russell-photo-(1).jpgWith great sadness, we recognize the sudden death on July16th of Joe Russell. Joe was a partner at Kreig DeVault in Indianapolis.  He regularly practiced in federal court representing persons charged with white collar crimes.  He was a former Assistant United States Attorney.  After entering private practice, Joe served as a Board Member for both the Indiana Federal Community Defender (2002-2006) and the Indianapolis Legal Aid Society.  Joe was a brilliant litigator, and a sensitive, extraordinarily funny human being who will be deeply missed by the legal community.  He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Russell, also a partner at Krieg DeVault, and son, Marc.
