Pete Russell has lived in Strongsville for over 20 years, where his office is located and belongs to the Chamber of Commerce. A graduate of Cleveland State School of Law, he has practiced in the Cleveland area for over 27 years in areas such as probate, elder law, estate planning, divorce, and bankruptcy.
Compassionate Legal Care
Pete enjoys how practicing law can help people in need; assisting elderly people in crisis was inspired by witnessing his grandmother decline in a nursing home, and seeing how his parents’ love and labor made her final days better. He has seen elderly people needlessly suffering in homes without water and gas and has been happy to relocate them to warm safe comfortable homes.
He has a wife and two children, one of who is still in the Strongsville school system and the other a college student in Kent. His wife is actively involved in the community and civic and artistic events. Both his wife and daughter volunteer in a homeless shelter in Cleveland. His son is active in the Strongsville Mustang marching band.
Pete also enjoys teaching college students, having taught law to paralegal students for years in Cleveland. He now teaches at Polaris College. He has been involved in the bar associations around the state as well.
On a Personal Note
Pete is an active bicycle rider and runner, having jogged in a marathon in Death Valley years ago. He also actively plays blues guitar in bands and enjoys golfing. He enjoys going to Cleveland Indians games, either at home or on the road. He also reads fiction and nonfiction in a broad array of topics including American history, mysteries, and classics.
He has spent a lot of time hiking in the outdoors, engaging in hikes with his father from the valleys of Utah to the Rocky Mountains to the Inka Trail in Peru.
